Who honesty would’ve thought that a cartoon on Adult Swim would result in a real band doing real tours and releasing real albums? And yet that’s exactly what happened, resulting in Dethklok’s Dethalbum breaking records as the highest first-week album sales for a death metal act before Dethalbum II broke that record. As silly as that sounds, it’s reassuring for this metal fan to know that people can relate to metal, even if it’s in as ridiculous (read: awesome) a format as Metalocalypse.
And now the band returns with, you guessed it, Dethalbum III. Packed with 12 blistering tracks, does this album meet my expectations or fall short? Find out below. READ MORE
Adult Swim has released details for the third album from Dethklok! Entitled Metalocalypse: Dethklok Dethalbum III, the album will be coming out Oct. 16th while a limited edition vinyl will be released Nov. 6th. There will be four versions of the album: regular release, digital release, clean release, and deluxe edition CD/DVD combo. The deluxe edition features a 32-minute documentary on the making of the album, as well as music videos and more.
The album is once again co-produced by show co-creator Brendon Small and Ulrich Wild. Artist Antonio Canobbio, who did the cover art for The Dethalbum and The Dethalbum II, once again provides cover art. Below you can see the cover art as well as the official track listing (the first song makes me think someone needs to see a doctor IMMEDIATELY).
Season 4 of Metalocalypse will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on Oct. 30th. READ MORE
I feel like I kinda jinxed things in yesterday’s article about Randy Blythe where I stated that there was still no word on whether or not the Lamb Of God/Dethklok/Gojira tour was pushing forward. I was still harboring a completely unrealistic hope that the tour would continue, even if it had to reschedule the first few dates. Alas, that is not going to happen as word has broken that the tour is now officially cancelled.
Per LoG’s PR: “The band regrets the decision but the uncertainty of Randy’s release makes it impossible to carry on with the tour. Upon Randy’s release, it is the band’s intention to rebook a tour in the fall and at this time the band fully intends to participate in the Mayhem Cruise in December.”
They also add, “Lamb Of God wishes to thank Dethklok, Adult Swim and Gojira for their support and patience as well as all of the promoters who had dates on the tour. Last but certainly not least, the band thanks all of the fans who bought tickets for the tour and who have been supportive of Randy and the band over the last month that Randy has been held in Prague. Without the fans, there is no LAMB OF GOD.” READ MORE
Mastodon have announced The Hunter as the follow-up to Crack The Sky and have teamed up with Adult Swim to release the first video, Deathbound. WARNING: This video features gratuitous amounts of muppet slaughter, creatures from hell, laser-eye robots, UFO’s, and trains. If you can’t handle all of that awesomeness, well then…I guess you shouldn’t watch the video.
After two years of waiting (im)patiently, today marks the release of Torche’s highly anticipated and already critically praised new album, Songs For Singles. The followup to 2008′s Meanderthal, Songs For Singles marks the next chapter in the band’s trajectory towards one big global bear hug.
To celebrate the release, both the band and the good folks at Hydra Head Records have chosen to give away not one but TWO new tracks off the new album, courtesy of your friends at Spin.com, and of all places, The Cartoon Network!
The Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim has launched a new compilation album, appropriately named Metal Swim
, currently hosting a previously unreleased Torche track off Songs For Singles, entitled Arrowhead. And as previously mentioned, the Torche supporters at Spin.com
have also been kind enough to host the new track Out Again, which you can grab off the front page of their website.
Finally, as if all of this wasn’t enough to make your Tuesday about 90% better than it might’ve been, Torche has announced another in-store performance in addition to today’s appearance at Park Ave CDs in Orlando, this time taking place on September 28th at Vacation Vinyl (Hydra Head’s Sunset Junction vinyl shop!) in Los Angeles, following their headlining show the night before at the Bootleg Theater, and officially kicking off their US tour w/ High On Fire and Kylesa. Positive vibes abound! We can’t wait!
