AVENGED SEVENFOLD's M. SHADOWS, ZACKY VENGEANCE Talk To U.K.'s SCUZZ (Video)

Back in July, Terry "Beez" Bezer of Scuzz conducted an interview with AVENGED SEVENFOLD singer M. Shadows and guitarist Zacky Vengeance. You can now watch the full chat below.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD has released the animated series based around the band's sixth and latest album, "Hail To The King". The six-episode series is available on Machimina's HappyHour channel on YouTube and also serves as a prologue and back story for the group's mobile game, "Hail To The King: Deathbat", which will debut sometime in early 2014.

Singer M. Shadows told The Pulse Of Radio that Machimina first came to the band with the idea of doing an animated series. "They came to us and said, 'Well, do you guys want to do a series?'" he said. "And we didn't really have much interest, to be honest, 'cause we didn't really see the tie-in. But then, you know, they found out we were doing a game and said, 'Well, why don't we kind of tell the story before the game happens?' Sometimes it's hard to tell a whole back story in the beginning of a mobile game. It's just something for fans to watch. You know, it's 15 minutes long, just a thing to sit back and eat some popcorn and watch a series. It's just kind of all in good fun."

The series was directed by Jon Schnepp, producer of the Adult Swim animated show "Metalocalypse".

Both the series and game tell the story of AVENGED SEVENFOLD's fictional mascot, the Deathbat.

The band recorded seven brand new songs for the game, which will also include 16 pieces of never-before-seen artwork from all the group's albums that players can unlock.

"Hail To The King" came out earlier this year and was the second straight AVENGED SEVENFOLD album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard chart, following 2010's "Nightmare".
