Created by Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha, "Metalocalypse" follows the on- and off-stage adventures of DETHKLOK, an incredibly talented and insanely popular Norwegian heavy metal band. DETHKLOK boasts the lineup of vocalist Nathan Explosion (lyrical visionary), Skwisgaar Skwigelf and Toki Wartooth (two of the fastest guitarists alive), bassist William Murderface and drummer Pickles — the soul of the band. Not really.

"Dethalbum" features a guest appearance by legendary drummer Gene Hoglan (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, DEATH, DARK ANGEL, TESTAMENT). He previously stated about the CD, "What a killer metal record! I can't wait for everyone else to hear it, and since it has now been slated for a September 25th release, that is now gonna be sooner than later, especially with leakage. And yes, it appears that we are going on tour with it as well! The logistics are being worked on as we speak, but it looks like it's gonna be a real killer, multi-media show. I'm looking real forward to that, I've even suspended the booking of a ton of clinics to clear my schedule to be available."

Read the article. There was no way I could fit And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Our Dead into the headline so I had to abreviate it no matter how stupid it looks.

Why did they shorten the band name so much? How about: And You Will Know Us By The Trial Of Dead (We Leave In Our Wake Of Total Devastating Destruction That We Unleash From Upon High Amongst the Minions Of Suffering Souls Since Dawn Of Time When Evil Incarnate Was Unleashed Upon The Condemned Masses Upon the Trail Of Dead).
