If you're finding your week thus far is lacking in terms of death metal/rock opus action, fret no more. Adult Swim's virtual metalheads Dethklok, i.e., "the world's greatest cultural force" from the show "Metalocalypse," have a new album out which is sure to make a Klokateer out of even the worst skeptic.
Metalocalypse: The Doomstar Requiem A Klok Opera -- which was released Tuesday and serves as the original score to the TV special of the same name -- clocks in at a truly ambitious hour-plus of rock; it also features such special touches as the inclusion of a 50-piece orchestra (!!!).
If you're a fan curious about where this particular plot touches off, it's directly after the abduction of Dethklok guitarist Toki Wartooth in the Season 4 finale. With his life in danger, his only salvation can come from his own bandmates. Have a listen to the entire score right now and get sucked in...
The aforementioned animated one-hour special aired on Sunday, October 27 on Adult Swim, and included special guests Jack Black, Mark Hamill, Malcolm McDowell, and Cannibal Corpse's George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher. Visit Adult Swim's official site for more information on the show.
