Avenged Sevenfold released their new animated series. You can watch all six episodes below.

The series is based around their most-recent album Hail to the King and serves as a prologue and back story for the group's upcoming mobile-phone game.

"We felt this was the best way to tell the story and give you all an idea about the type of game we are creating," frontman M. Shadows said.

The series was directed by the producer of Adult Swim's "Dethklok: Metalocalypse," Jon Schnepp.

The mobile-phone game will debut sometime in early 2014 and will feature seven new songs.
