The most brutal band in the history of the world is back for a one hour special October 27th on Adult Swim. Metalocalypse : The Doomstar Requiem, A Klok Opera will pick up right where Season 4 left off over a year and a half ago. Dethklok was under attack from the Metal Masked Assassin and the Revengencers all while fighting off the dark forces of Salacia and General Crozier,
"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?"
The special will include voice cameos from Jack Black along with regulars like Mark Hamill, Malcolm McDowell, and George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher from Cannibal Corpse. Creator Brendon Small says a full length soundtrack will be available the next day and will again feature Gene Hoglan on drums along with Bryan Beller and Mike Keneally.
Small says this is by far the best thing he's ever done with the show,
“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.”
I just want some closure. This show always leaves you with so many questions and you never know if they're going to make any more episodes. Plus, we could all use more Dr. Rockzo in our lives.
