Avenged Sevenfold's Hail To The King is well on its way to living up to its name. The album, released by Warner Bros. Records, earned the band its second No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart, selling upwards of 159,400 units, making it the biggest first-week sales debut for a rock album this year.

Avenged Sevenfold has just wrapped up sold-out tour dates in the U.S. and Europe, including a sold-out show at Wembley in the UK. With all of this momentum, Machinima, the number one global video entertainment network for young males, has announced that the Hail To The King animated series will be released on December 15 for binge-viewing on Machinima's HappyHour channel (YouTube.com/HappyHour).

Hail To The King is a six-episode animated series, which is directed by Metalocalypse producer Jon Schnepp.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Accompanying the launch of the series will be a trailer for the game, which will be available early 2014.
