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.

Hail To The King also went to No. 1 in the UK, handing the band its first chart-topping album in Britain, as well as in Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Ireland, and Finland. 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).

From the creative minds of Avenged Sevenfold, one of rock music's global heavyweights and a trailblazing force in fusing the worlds of music and video games, Hail To The King is a six-episode animated series, which is directed by Metalocalypse producer Jon Schnepp.

The unique and innovative series tells the fictional story of the Deathbat - the band's longtime trademark, and serves as the prologue to their highly anticipated mobile video game, "Hail to the King: Deathbat." Accompanying the launch of the series will be a trailer for the game, which will be available early 2014. With the series launching in just days, Machinima has released an all-new trailer.
