The self-proclaimed most brutal death metal band ever, DETHKLOK — stars of Adult Swim's animated "Metalocalypse" television series — will perform a free concert at the Atlanta Center Stage in Atlanta, Georgia on Thursday, December 13, 2007. This one-night-only performance will feature songs from the band's first-ever CD release "The Dethalbum", which has quickly become "the best-selling death metal album of all time since its release in September," according to a press release. There are 450 tickets for the show which will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be obtained in advance. Must be 18 and over.

"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.

A band is Brutal once they realize that Metal is meant to be ridiculous and then runs with it. So Cannibal Corpse and Dethklok take the cake on that one, because they are actually good, Semi-serious Metal, but at the same time, they're just f***in stupid, and they know it, so they win.
