Dethklok and Metalocalypse creator Brendon Small Has announced the release of “Metalocalypse: The Doomstar Requiem, A klok Opera.” Set to be aired October 27 on Adult Swim.
For those that are also fans of the band itself, a soundtrack of completely original music will accompany the special. Including a bonus track “Blazing Star.” That is set for release on the 29th, Just 2 days later. Guest appearances include Jack Black, Mark Hamill, Malcolm McDowell, and Cannibal Corpse’s George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher. Brendon Small says of the hour-long epic:
“This is not like anything we’ve ever done. This is a full-blown musical- metal combined with symphonic passages, classic musical theatre, high stakes drama, emotional moments, and yes totally ridiculous comedy. I drew from all of my influences to make this the most unique project I could dream of. This is easily the best thing we’ve ever done with the show and the music. I can’t wait for you to hear it.”
“We pick up directly after the abduction of Dethklok guitarist Toki Wartooth in the season four finale. With his life in danger, his only salvation can come from the four most selfish human celebrities on Earth—his bandmates, extreme metal band DETHKLOK. Will they be able to get past their own egos to help someone besides themselves?”
