Metalocalypse: The Doomstar Requiem — A Klok Opera, an animated one-hour special created by Brendon Small, will air at midnight Sunday, October 27 on Adult Swim. The special includes guest appearances by Jack Black, Mark Hamill, Malcolm McDowell and Cannibal Corpse's George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher.
Dethklok and Metalocalypse mainman Brendon Small released a solo album last year under the project title Brendon Small's Galaktikon. What was supposedly a studio-only endeavor has become a massive undertaking as Small prepares for Galaktikon's live debut at the Roxy Theatre in Hollywood on March 3. This will be part of Wesfest 8, an annual concert to benefit the Wes Wehmiller Endowed Scholarship at Berklee College of Music.
Dethklok — who are widely popular in their animated form on the Adult Swim TV series Metalocalypse, as well as in their real-life form — released their third studio album, Dethalbum III, October 16 via Williams Street Records.
In anticipation of the upcoming release of Dethalbum III, animated metal band Dethklok have just released a new clip for the album's opening track, "I Ejaculate Fire." Watch the literal-enough-to-be-NSFW clip below.
