Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse: Season Two is set for a Decmeber 2nd release as a two-DVD set. The release will contain all 18 episodes plus a slew of hidden special features that the fans will have to find.
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.
Metalocalypse: Season Two DVD’s pre-sale date is October 28th and will retail for $29.98.
