The updated version is very good, better in certain parts, but also a little over the top as well. Demolition Hammer cut perhaps the most devastating thrash record of the 90s when they released Tortured Existence, and on that album you can hardly hear the drums! His timing is top notch, and adds to the hilarity of the lyrics but his tone and conviction are pretty weak. Parody, bad joke, whatever, tracks like these should remain in the cartoon series itself because at least they make sense there. Retrieved September 8, It can maybe garner some respect for the sheer fact that it is a metal album that has achieved a wide audience and inspired people to learn more than a few chords on the guitar and bang their heads rather than simply staring at their shoes.

Small and the Atomic Clock are on, they’re ON, and the album has a good number of memorable songs dethalum stick to you like wet ABC gum “Murmaider”, “Awaken”, dethqlbum “Thunderhorse” being three of the better tracks. On the other hand, much of the album sounds and feels the same, which kills it more than anything.
I have learned to love the characters and any generic melo-death they play will be loved by me as well.
I have to admit, I’m biased about this because I love the show. There’s a lot of fun, catchy material and the musicians have certainly got their shit together in fact, drums are handled by none other than Gene Hoglanbut I kind of have trouble taking this seriously as a death metal album. The normal album, however, is fucking stellar. Metalocalypse is very controversial in the metal community. And I’ll admit – the drums are a major fucking step up from the programmed tracks.
There are anthems, there are wild speed bursts, there are tracks purely devoted to comedy and should you find the Deluxe Edition, there’s deyhalbum a Guns N Roses song. This is a review of the music, not the awesome show or the merits of the virtual band. Archived from the original on January 17, On the surface, it sounds like your normal death metal vocals.
Songs such as “Murmaider” and “Awaken” are so catchy and powerful that you’ll have a hard time not banging your head, though the sarcastic nature of the lyrics will keep you from enjoying yourself completely.
Brendon Small as I said cannot play the bass and cannot growl to save himself but he sometimes plays these small fast solos in some tracks and that in my opinion is what actually is the only thing worth hearing in this album.
I’m not asking them to record the fucker on a 4-track, but a death metal CD needs to have some rough edges, and this is so over-produced it’s not funny. I could stand the little snippets when I watch the show, but they certainly are not quality songs.
If you’re thinking this hard about Dethklok, and whether their music counts as “real metal” or whether they even exist as a band, you’re missing the point. For this album to succeed, it must appeal to non-fans of the show like me.
The guitar solos are simply amazing. They are exactly how Nathan Explosion would have delivered them. Small’s limp delivery kills the intensity behind some of the best lyrics on the disc and there are some lyrics that are unironically good – see the chorus of “Go Forth And Die”.
The melodies are often like Amon Amarth’s “Versus the World” in style and effective exiting catchiness. He sounds extremely one dimensional and monotonous during this entire LP, but then again so does the entire album. It might have made more sense to have just released a Dethklok EP instead of a full-length with so many similar songs, but it’s still worth a spin or two. It is perhaps not the most brutal album or the best written, It is not a magnum opus from a recognized master, but it is a work of great merit and great popular sentiment.
Everything sounds syrupy and trebly and over-processed. I probably won’t have these stuck in my head for hours and won’t listen to them unless they come up on shuffle but, that being said, there are a few guilty pleasures on this album. The Dethalbum, Dethklok’s first “real-world” release, is a surprisingly engaging and entertaining serving of Gothenburg-style melodic death metal, featuring several reworked versions of songs played on the show “Murmaider,” “Thunderhorse,” et alas well as several new compositions by mastermind Brendon Small.
Articles with short description Articles with hAudio microformats Articles with album ratings that need to be turned into prose. Do not take this album seriously. As for the actual songs, there is a great abundance of them. Maybe the creators of the show were excited to have an actual metal musician on board and decided not to waste his contributions, but either way it gets annoying as hell to hear ultra-jackhammer drums that drown out all the other instruments.
It’s immediately evident that he’s whispering his growled vocals, which – even on a parody record – is a cardinal sin. ReaperMan69December 22nd, The band, or the two guys who play instruments that the cartoons take credit for I should say, has managed to combine elements of melodic death metal, some old school death metal, and hints of black metal. They will also know that while the show is amazing and very very funny, Dethklok themselves aren’t actually that brilliant.
There is literally something for everyone here.
