DETHKLOK picture
Dethklok is a cartoon melodic death metal band created by Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha for the television cartoon Metalocalypse. The band is sometimes cited as an example of "comedy rock" on par with bands such as GWAR or Spinal Tap, though the overtly comedic aspects of the band are usually reserved for show episodes. Dethklok released their first album in 2007, and the music itself is relatively straightforward (melodic) death metal. The band's less common typeset moniker, Dëthkløk, includes the heavy metal umlaut.

Their debut album, released September 25, 2007, was entitled The Dethalbum. Creator Brendon Small wrote the lyrics and music and also performed the guitar, bass, and vocals; former Death/Dark Angel/Devin Townsend/Strapping Young Lad drummer Gene Hoglan performed drums on the album. The album debuted at #21 on the Billboard Top 200 list, making it the highest charting (melodic) death metal album ever.

DETHKLOK Dethalbum III

Album · 2012 · Melodic Death Metal

With each passing Dethklok release, the cartoon metal band feels less like a parody and more like a credible metal force in its own right. The vocals are still comedic ("I Ejaculate Fire", need I say more?), but at the same time the joke there is wearing thin and I suspect the participants know this, with the instrumental backing exploring a broader range of metal styles. Whilst melodic death metal is still the baseline, excursions into other forms occur - there's some segments of Starved, for instance, where black metal seems to be creeping into the picture. Some metalheads will never take Dethklok seriously, but one thing is for sure: Dethklok certainly take metal seriously.

The second Dethklok album finds Brendon Small continuing his laser-accurate tribute to extreme metal. Actually, whilst the first Dethalbum's songs mainly presented a fairly accessible brand of extreme metal, on Dethalbum II Small mixes up both more accessible numbers and substantially more complex material, broadening the range of the project considerably. There's a few points where the joke seems on the verge of wearing thin - did we really need a sequel to Murmaider? - but otherwise the Dethklok schtick continues unabated across the entire album and another entertaining melodic death metal opus is produced by a band of cartoon dudes from a flash-animated Adult Swim series. Don't you love the 21st Century?

Brendon Small's Metalocalypse cartoon might poke fun at some of the more buffoonish antics of musicians and bands, but every single episode drips with love for the genre, right down to the band names slipped in here and there in the background (like having a fast food outlet in one episode be called "Burzumburger"). I think that's why the Dethalbum succeeds so well at both being a hilarious parody of extreme metal and yet, at the same time, a really good melodic death metal album in its own right.

Any doubts about Small's ability to develop the snippets of Dethklok's music we hear in the episodes is dispelled with the opening track Murmaider, a song which is more crushingly heavy than many serious death metal bands are able to compose, and keeps going through a series of excellent tracks that don't let up until the end. I can take or leave the bonus disc, but then again I never let bonus tracks affect album scores anyway; on the whole, I have to give this one five stars.
