I have been waiting patiently for word of the next season of Metalocalypse, and thanks to Bloody Disgusting, that word finally came through the grapevine! On October 27th, there will be a one hour, Metalocalypse extravaganza that's sure to melt our skulls with metal and carnage.
Brendan Smalls, the brains behind the show, states: “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.”
You can expect appearances from the likes of Jack Black (Tenacious D), Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, Excision), Metalocalypse regular Mark Hamill and Cannibal Corpse's very own George Fischer.
The one hour special will pick up after the conclusion of season 4 in which Toki Wartooth was kidnapped by evil forces. Will the rest of the band be able to over come petty differences, accept their fate as the chosen ones and save him? Either way, there was a 50 piece orchestra commissioned for the soundtrack of this thing, so it's going to be HUGE. The soundtrack will be released 2 days (10/29) after the episode premieres on Adult Swim.
Now all that's left to do is dig on the teaser below and get ready for the end of this month!
