A7X preview game soundtrack

Avenged Sevenfold have released a preview stream of the soundtrack for their video game Hail To The King: Deathbat.

It’s based on the themes of their most recent album, launched last year. Frontman M Shadows recently told how they custom designed weapons for themselves – and confirmed that late drummer Jimmy ‘The Rev’ Sullivan would appear as an unlockable character.

Shadows said: “With the blessing of his parents we put The Rev in the game. Once you unlock his character you can use him as your comrade to help you through the levels.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
