Legendary drummer Gene Hoglan (DARK ANGEL, DEATH, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, TESTAMENT) will team up with Mike Keneally, Bryan Beller and Brendon Small on the road as the real live version of DETHKLOK — the stars of the animated Cartoon Network "Adult Swim" program "Metalocalypse". The group will open for ...AND YOU WILL KNOW US BY THE TRAIL OF OUR DEAD on their U.S. tour in the fall. This Adult Swim-backed trek will include free shows at 12 U.S. colleges (open to the public) beginning on October 29.

Mike Keneally (guitar) has played with Frank Zappa and Steve Vai, among others, and is also the National Music Director for the Paul Green School of Rock. Bryan Beller (bass) is part of the Mike Keneally band and currently tours with Steve Vai.

DETHKLOK opening for ...AND YOU WILL KNOW US BY THE TRAIL OF OUR DEAD:

Oct. 29 - University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM
Oct. 31 - University of Nevada, Las Vegas, NV
Nov. 01 - University of California, Los Angeles, CA
Nov. 02 - University of California, Berkley, CA
Nov. 05 - Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO
Nov. 07 - University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN
Nov. 08 - University of South Dakota, Vermillian, SD
Nov. 11 - University of Colorado, Boulder, CO
Nov. 13 - Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, IL
Nov. 15 - University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK
Nov. 17 - University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS
Nov. 18 - Northwestern University, Chicago, IL

On September 25, Adult Swim unleashed the brand-new CD from DETHKLOK on an unsuspecting public. "Dethalbum" features several full-length songs from Adult Swim's most metal animated series "Metalocalypse" plus all-new tracks.

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.

So what if theres a scene band there? dont let that ruin your night of brutality, instead I look at it as a bonus, now I can beat on some scene kids and see Dethklok on the same night!!

...Trail of Dead is a brutal band (listen to ~S/T~, ~Madonna~, or ~Source Tags & Codes~ ["Homage," anyone?]), but not as brutal as Dethklok. They are really two totally seperate genres. I love both and have seen AYWKUBTTOD (they hurt themselves on stage performing... literally), but, as with most people on this forum, I think I'm looking forward to seeing Dethklok more. I'd suggest staying for both sets, though... I doubt you'd be disappointed!

adultswimpresents.com has ticket info, and it is free for all students of the respective universities, but tickets are available to be purchased at the adultswim site. With a live band, this is gonna be an interesting event.
