DETHKLOK Co-Creator BRENDON SMALL Interviewed By METAL ASSAULT (Audio)

On March 30, Aniruddh "Andrew" Bansal of Metal Assault conducted an interview with Brendon Small, co-creator of "Metalocalypse", the smash hit animated series on Adult Swim featuring the fictitious metal band DETHKLOK. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.

On July 9, DETHKLOK will perform in the place of MEGADETH at the San Bernardino, California stop of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival alongside DISTURBED and GODSMACK.

Alfred Music Publishing recently partnered once again with Cartoon Network Enterprises, the licensing and merchandising arm of Adult Swim, to present the first authentic bass TAB transcriptions of songs by DETHKLOK, the animated metal band from Adult Swim's "Metalocalypse" television series.

Created by Brendon Small ("Home Movies") and Tommy Blacha ("Da Ali G Show"), the "Metalocalypse" TV series launched in 2006 and recently concluded its third season on Adult Swim. One of the most popular series on the cable network, "Metalocalypse" portrays DETHKLOK as a death metal band with enough popularity to be the world's seventh-largest economy. In reality, DETHKLOK is the highest-selling band in death metal, exploding onto The Billboard 200 with "The Dethalbum", debuting at No. 21 in 2007 and "Dethalbum II" at No. 15 in 2009. Both albums contain full-length versions of songs partially heard on the show.
