Metal bands tend to be cartoonish by 
nature, but only Dethklok stars in an actual cartoon: Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse. But something special happens when transcendentally oafish band members 
Nathan Explosion, Skwisgaar Skwigelf, Pickles, William Murderface, and Toki Wartooth relocate from the small screen to a big one, and four real musicians—show creator Brendon Small (guitar, vocals), former Frank Zappa stunt guitarist Mike Keneally, Bryan Beller (bass), and Gene Hoglan (drums)—synergize with their meticulously synced animated counterparts, creating an entertainmentgasm of galactic proportions. Collected recently on Dethalbum III, Small’s tunes from his show’s past few seasons include “I Ejaculate Fire,” “Impeach God,” and “Crush the Industry.” Expect a pop Gesamtkunstwerk on a heady par with The Simpsons simulator ride.
