'Metalocalypse: Season Two' DVD Coming In December

The world's biggest, most brutal, murderous and, well, incompetent heavy metal band will once again step into the spotlight in the upcoming Adult Swim DVD release, "Metalocalypse: Season Two". From Adult Swim and Warner Home Video, this DVD will be available while the band is at the top of its game — in both the real and animated worlds. Not only does the band's mega-stardom rank them as the world's 12th largest economy — but the animated band, DETHKLOK, has also achieved unparalleled success in the real world. The level of brutality is raised to a whole new level as the band tries its hand at electrocutions, weddings and the glamorous world of publicity in the "Metalocalypse: Season Two" DVD, which includes all 18 second season episodes and a slew of hidden special features that fans will have to find. That's right. Anything worthwhile demands some work. So buried within the DVD's two discs will be a host of bonus features for fans to track down and blog about. Available on December 2 for the suggested retail price of $29.98, the "Metalocalypse: Season Two" DVD's preorder date is October 28.

Created by Brendon Small ("Home Movies") and Tommy Blacha ("Da Ali G Show"), "Metalocalypse" follows the on and off-stage adventures of the fictional DETHKLOK, the insanely popular animated Norwegian heavy metal band. In addition to being the world's most brutal band members, Nathan Explosion, William "Murderface", Skwisgaar Skwigelf, Toki Wartooth and Pickles are also stupid…dangerously stupid. From sold out concerts to late-night snack-attacks, the animated heavy metal band creates a wave of mayhem, death and destruction wherever they go, but thanks to their "really good lawyer," they manage to walk away legally unscathed on every occasion. Since debuting on Adult Swim in 2006, the series has become one of the highest-rated original series on the network and the second season was watched by more than five million 18-34 year-old viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. Moreover, the band's debut CD — "Dethklok: The Dethalbum" — has become the fastest-selling death metal album of all time since debuting at #21 on Billboard's Top 100 list, and a real-live version of the animated band led by Brendon Small recently completed a sold-out 28-city tour.

Adult Swim will support the "Metalocalypse: Season Two" DVD release with a comprehensive marketing campaign including 30-second on-air spots on Adult Swim and online ads on various comic, entertainment, and underground sites.
