METALLICA's James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett — along with members of ARCH ENEMY and NEVERMORE — have lent their voices to the cartoon series "Death Clock Metalocalypse". Check out the show teaser at this location.

Brendon Small, known for the series "Home Movies", co-created "Death Clock Metalocalypse" about a Norwegian heavy metal band called DEATHKLOK. Although they rock to the top of the charts with gusto, they are also incredibly stupid and leave a path of destruction and mayhem behind wherever they tour. The new series will premiere in August on on Adult Swim, the adult-oriented television programming block on Cartoon Network.

METALLICA had previously lent their voices to such animated shows as "The Simpsons" and "Dave the Barbarian".

I watched the teaser and had to laught when they were in the grocery store! My buddy Hank was in a Metal band and he would have questions and statements that were right up that line of thinking all the time! Hilarious!

I can't tell what I think of this but it looks like a Black Metal This is Spinal spoof. It might be really good or just horrible. I will have to see it to find out.
