Can Metal save the world? It can if it’s DethKlok, the signal most influential force in the universe. This is the basic idea behind the wildly original animated series “Metalocalypse“. Most of the episodes are under 15 minutes long, but they pack in a lot of material in a short time. I found this show by accident while channel surfing one night…I’ve been a fan ever since. It’s hard to say whether this is a comedy or an action-thriller, whatever it is it’s definitely a blast. The band unwittingly tackle such global problems as war in the Middle East, or the timely release of their latest album can make or break the world’s economy, and they even survive the most brutal experience of all time—the girlfriend. There’s a running sub-plot as well that’s sure to hold your interest. It involves the world power elite as they monitor the band’s movement in order to predict the apocalypse and see Dethklok fulfill some mysterious, ancient prophecy.
If you like brutal metal served with a heap of dark humor, you’ve come to the right show. I also enjoy watching the end credits and finding the different celebrity voices. Check it out I think you’ll be surprised. UNLEASH THE METAL!
“Dethklok has accidentally unleashed a giant troll. What, that’s ridiculous, trolls don’t exist. Oh yeah, well then how do you explain all the dead unicorns?” One of my favorite quotes from the show.
