Easily one of the best shows on the planet, Cartoon Network has announced the fourth season return of “Metalocalypse,” the smash hit animated series on Adult Swim featuring the fictitious metal band Dethklok – featuring Nathan Explosion, Skwisgaar Skwigelf, Pickles, William Murderface, Toki Wartooth and their manager Charles Foster Offdensen – premiering Sunday, April 29 at 12:15 a.m. ET/PT.
“Brutality wields its uncomfortable deth-hammer in the fourth season of “Metalocalypse”. Excruciating horrors loom, waiting for the right moment to crush us all into a smooth repugnant paste, with very few lumps. Experience the lurking blackness of dating, the vomitous torture of job insecurity, the repulsive abhorrence of reality, the emasculating woe of dating a co-worker, and the pinching, sweaty waking DETH of flying coach. Will our beloved DETHKLOK survive these deathly trials or will they perish like a flaming serpent cast down by Odin? The Metalocalypse indeed looms nearer.”
Created by Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha (“Da Ali G Show”), the “Metalocalypse” television series launched in 2006. One of the most popular series on the cable network, “Metalocalypse” portrays DETHKLOK as a Norwegian band with unheard-of popularity, even ranking them as the seventh-largest economy on earth.
