Metalocalypse: Season Two coming to DVD Dec. 2
Although the animated band is almost creepily popular in real life, the fictional Dethklok of Adult Swim remains our favorite face of bombastic, vaguely evil death-metal superstardom. They may not be able to boil an egg, but so extensive is their celebrity on Metalocalypse that it defies human conception—and often gets their fans killed.The cheerily caustic series, originally formulated by Home Movies creator Brendon Small and Da Ali G Show writer Tommy Blacha to imagine what a band “100 times more popular than the Beatles” might be like, has run for two seasons with a third on the way. And after the success of Deathkolk’s album last summer, Adult Swim and Warner Home Video have announced a new DVD set for the show’s second go-around, due for release Dec. 2.
The set will feature the second season’s 18 episodes and promises hidden bonus material for fans to dig up (hidden because, according to the press release, “anything worthwhile demands some work”). In the meantime, we're just going to watch the intro song on loop all day:
