Williams Street Records announced today details on the most highly-anticipated death metal album release of the year -- and it’s for none other than the animated band from Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse. On September 8th, the world’s most brutal animated band will once again reign supreme with the all-new release of "Dethklok: The Dethalbum II."

Featuring the band from the hit Adult Swim’s series, the album features 12 full-length tracks detailing Dethklok’s exploits in murder, mayhem and all things brutal. Written by series co-creator Brendon Small and recorded alongside legendary drummer Gene Hoglan, "Dethklok: The Dethalbum II" will be released as both a standard edition and a two-disc deluxe edition on CD and digital download beginning September 8th. Additionally, a limited edition vinyl of the album will be released in to local record shops on September 29.

The track listing for Dethklok’s "The Dethalbum II" is as follows:

1. Bloodlines
2. The Gears
3. Burn the Earth
4. Laser Canon Deth Sentence
5. Black Fire Upon Us
6. Deth Support
7. The Cyborg Slayers
8. I Tamper with the Evidence at the Murder Site of Odin
9. Murmaider II: The Water God
10. Comet Song
11. Symmetry
12. Volcano

The Deluxe edition will include a bonus DVD with 52 minutes of never-before-released music videos featured in the 2008 Dethklok tour.

"Dethklok: The Dethalbum II" is a follow up to Dethklok’s "The Dethalbum," which shattered sales records when it was released to retail in October 2007. With more than 34,000 copies in its first week, the album became the highest charting death metal album ever before going on to sell more than 300,000 copies to date.

Co-created by Tommy Blacha and Small, the Metalocalypse television series follows the on and off-stage adventures of the world’s most brutal band as they create a wave of mayhem, death and destruction wherever they go. Since debuting on Adult Swim in 2006, the series has become one of the network’s highest-rated original series and the second season was watched by more than five million 18-34 year-old viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. The new season of Metalocalypse will debut on Adult Swim this fall.

Was it just me who thought the second season was pretty crap? It had a few good episodes but for the most part I found it boring and lazy. What the f*** was with the one where they go to the amazon? I still look forward to the next season though.

Uhh, no. The amazon episode with yopo was one of the best. The transition into the episode's conclusion is so drastic, it literally scared some of my friends.

I'm a little disappointed! Dethklok was the reason I abandoned rap and rock and embraced metal. But there is no Impeach God, Dethrace song, Dethwedding, or even Klokblocked. Maybe some are there with different names, but I'm not seeing all these songs. Hope these tracks will be good, but there are only 12. Hope more get released if they launch a Deluxe Version of the Dethalbum 2.
