Packed with satire and sheer insanity, Metalocalypse is Adult Swim’s chillingly brilliant and terrifyingly real story of the world’s most extreme metal band Dethklok. Created by Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha, Metalocalypse follows the band as they unleash swarms of murderous kittens, destroy hippies with the power of thrash and play death inducing gigs. Dethklok themselves are narcissistic and self-indulgent with sales from merchandise and albums of such epic proportions it puts the band as the world’s 12th largest economy.
With guest voices from Metallica’s James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett and Mark Hamill (Star Wars), Metalocalypse is twisted, ear-shattering and laugh-out-loud funny… if you’re metal enough to watch it.
The Dethklok song ‘Thunderhorse’ features in Guitar Hero and the band’s album ‘The Dethalbum’ debuted at no. 21 on the US Billboard top 200 making it the best-selling death metal album of all time.
Metalocalypse is on general DVD release from Monday 22nd June 2009
