When asked about bringing the Deathbats into the Legacy of the Beast universe, Lead vocalist, songwriter, and a founding member of Avenged Sevenfold, M. Shadows said,
“It’s important to us to continue to bring exclusive unique opportunities to our Deathbats Club members, so when Iron Maiden and Navigator Games reached out, we were stoked to work with them on a unique concept for Legacy of the Beast. I loved seeing our fans stoked on the chance to have their custom Deathbat NFT being selected out of 10,000 and then brought to life in Iron Maiden’s game, what a cool experience.”
In Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast, metal and RPG gaming fans take on the role of the band’s iconic mascot, Eddie who travels across a spectacularly diverse array of worlds by traveling through time in captivating 3D environments.

So we invited M.Shadows to develop the concept with us, and the result was ‘The Nightmare Carnival’! This collab delivers a whole new level of innovation as Eddie battles with three enemies inspired by Avenged Sevenfold’s Deathbats.”
