DETHKLOK's brutal music video for "Bloodrocuted" can be viewed below. The song comes off "The Dethalbum" CD, which features several full-length songs from Adult Swim's most metal animated series "Metalocalypse" plus all-new tracks.

"The Dethalbum" sold nearly 34,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position #21 on The Billboard 200 chart. It also dominated the Loud Rock radio charts, hitting #6 on CMJ, #11 on FMQB, and #1 on Mediaguide metal specialty. The CD was also streamed 45,000 times when it went live on AOL Music during the week of its release.

The September 25 release of "Metalocalypse: Dethklok's The Dethalbum" coincided with the start of Season 2 of "Metalocalypse" on Adult Swim and the release of "Metalocalypse: Season 1" on DVD. The DVD, which hit streets on October 2, sold over 18,000 units in its first two days.

The "Bloodrocuted" video will be hitting the tube October 22 on Music Choice Video On Demand. Music Choice is the #1 On Demand network in the country, and their content has been viewed over 1 billion times.

DETHKLOK and "Metalocalypse" creators Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha will be guest DJs on Sirius' Faction. The first-ever split "Hostile Takeover" show will air October 19 at 7 p.m. (EST), and features both the creators and the band spinning their favorite metal hits.

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 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.

I think I've seen ..And you will know us...'s name spelled at least 3 different ways. But what kind of sense does "trail of OUR dead" make? I think it is "trail of the dead" but I've also seen "trail of dead". Bottom line: make you name shorter or people will screw it all up.
