This unsurprisingly brutal trailer is for a one hour Metalocalypse special that seems to be unlike anything we’ve ever seen. Says the Adult Swim PR team:
“In Metalocalypse: The Doomstar Requiem A Klok Opera, 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? Find out in this one-hour heavy metal rock opera special with a completely original score.”
That’s right, we not only will be subjected to what’s likely to be the best (only?) animated heavy metal rock opera ever to graze our TVs (laptops), but come October 29th, the soundtrack, complete with a fifty piece orchestra, will be available as an album. Did we say “brutal” yet?
Creator Brendon Small said, “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.”
We can’t wait either, Brendon.
