Album Review: Dethklok- “Dethalbum III”

Posted by NichTheHair on Thursday, November 29, 2012 at 10:40 AM (PST)

Dethklok fan suicides have ceased since the release of Dethalbum III on Crustal Mountain Records (Williams Street) and the seventh largest world economy is stabilizing after three tumultuous years. However, my suicide risk might jump back up if they cancel another NYC tour date.

This album follows the precision of the last release and really tightens up the songs from seasons three and four of Metalocalypse.

Brendon Small’s Galaktikon track-by-track breakdown

Posted by SeanB on Tuesday, April 24, 2012 at 7:18 AM (PST)

If you haven’t heard of Galaktikon yet you are missing out my friend.  It is a “high-stakes intergalactic extreme rock album” from Metalocalypse creator Brendon Small and shouldn’t be slept on.  It’s basically all the music that didn’t get put on the Dethklok albums because they were too melodic, organized into a ridiculous audio comic book of sorts.  Small recently sat down with GuitarWorld.com and gave a breakdown of the entire album which you can check out right here.

The album is out April 29, 2012 to coincide with the release of Metalocalypse Season 4, but is not a replacement for a new Dethalbum.  That will still be released at a later date.  To check out some songs taken off the album click here.

Alright, I hope you’re ready for this.  Brendon Small, the man who has given us the amazing cartoons Home Movies and of course Metalocalypse, has released the first single from his upcoming album with his side project Galaktikon.  To listen to the song, called “On My Way”, click here.

Galaktikon is the same musicians that are in Dethklok, so you can definitely hear some similarities, but it’s way different.

The album is coming out in April along with the premier of Metalocalypse and Small has been very adament that this is not a replacement for a new Dethalbum.  That will still come out in the future. The whole concept of Galaktikon sounds pretty cool and the song is catchy as hell.  Small had this to say about “On My Way”:

“I’m thrilled to finally give people a taste of what I’ve been blabbing about doing for months.  ‘On My Way’ is the last track on the record, where our hero confronts the villain and saves the girl, while complaining the whole time!

“This album should be thought of as an audio comic book, an over acted chamber drama, a ridiculous premise that takes itself way too seriously all the way to the end.”

To read more of what Brendon Small has to say about the album as a whole and why they actually made an album out of it click here.
