Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha of DETHKLOK the stars of the animated Cartoon Network "Adult Swim" program "Metalocalypse" will be the featured guests on Indie 103.1 FM's specialty metal program "Chaos with Full Metal Jackie" tonight (Sunday, May 18) at 10:00 p.m. PST (1:00 a.m. EST Monday morning). Jackie will also premiere songs from CRYPTOPSY's new album, "The Unspoken King", which is set for a June 24 release via Century Media Records.To listen to the show live via the Internet, go to this location. The program also airs on KNAC.COM Monday nights between 7 and 9 p.m. PST (and again on Sunday mornings between 7 and 9 a.m.). DETHKLOK will kick off a 28-city headlining tour on June 2 in Portland, along with two of metal's top acts, CHIMAIRA and SOILENT GREEN. This major tour starring the five band members from Adult Swim's "Metalocalypse" Nathan Explosion, William Murderface, Skwisgaar Swigelf, Toki Wartooth and Pickles comes on the heels of an incredibly successful fall for the band. In its first time touring, DETHKLOK opened for AND YOU WILL KNOW US BY THE TRAIL OF DEAD in a 12-city college tour that did not disappoint. Released in conjunction with the tour was the band's first album, "Dethklok: The Dethalbum", which debuted at #21 on The Billboard 200 during its first week of release, making it the highest-charting death metal album ever. More than 195,000 copies of "Dethklok: The Dethalbum" have been sold to date, and more than 120,000 copies of the "Metalocalypse: Season 1" DVD from Warner Home Video have been sold since its release in October 2007. "I predict that this show will be, without a doubt, the best animated death metal tour in recorded history," said Brendon Small, creator and most metal member of DETHKLOK.
