More than likely able to kick Gorillaz or the Mesopotamians’ virtual asses in a bar fight, Dethklok, the animated death metal band from Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse, released a record The Dethalbum last week and are going on tour with …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead. Not bad for a bunch of head banging toons. (The music’s played by Metalocalypse creator Brendon Small and legendary Dark Angel/Death/Strapping Young Lad drummer Gene Hoglan on the album…) Take a close listen to the humorous heaviness of “Hatredy” from the Dethalbum bonus disc.
Chicken and tennis, anyone?
Dethklok – “Hatredy” (MP3)
Watch out Nile! It’s a pretty damn catchy song — the lyrics about dying on stage and boning someone’s wife only add to the pageantry. Anyone seen the show? Catch the boys trying on Dragonforce speed metal or going shopping. Our favorite moment occurs in the Metalocalypse intro, the five players riding a motorcycle with four sidecars. Now that’s band unity.
The Dethalbum is out on Williams Street/Roadrunner.
