In honor of National Metal Day we get the latest release from melodic death metal band Dethklok. They recently released their third full length album entitled “Dethalbum III.” The band is featured in virtual form on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim program and was founded by Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha. Also featured in the band is drummer, Gene Hoglan and bassist, Bryan Beller.
The album is a full-out metal assault on the senses with a bit of a “tongue-in-cheek” humor. With songs like “I Ejaculate Fire” and “Killstardo Abominate” the lyrics under any other pretext would sound out of place, but fit perfectly with the aggressive attack of the music. The songs on this album are featured in seasons two, three and four of the animated show “Metalocalypse,” but fit together nicely on this release. While some of the lyrics to the songs are unrecognizable, the music is pure pumping adrenaline as on “Impeach God”and “Skyhunter.” The album closes with the motorized drumming of “Rejoin” as Dethklok continue to impress with quality heavy metal music.
