A hard-hitting animated Adult Swim series produced by Titmouse Inc., Metalocalypse follows the animated story of Dethklok, the ridiculously popular animated half-American, half-Norwegian heavy metal band. In addition to being the world's most brutal band members, Nathan Explosion, William "Murderface," Skwisgaar Skwigelf, Toki Wartooth and Pickles are also stupid...dangerously stupid. From sold out concerts to late-night snack-attacks, the guys creates a wave of mayhem, death and destruction wherever they go, but thanks to their "really good lawyer" they manage to walk away legally unscathed on every occasion. Since its debut in 2006, the series has emerged as one of the highest-rated original series on Adult Swim, and the animated band has also enjoyed very real success in the consumer products space, with two top-selling albums and corresponding sold-out tours, apparel and more. Dethklok: The Dethalbum and Dethklok: The Dethalbum II have combined to sell more than 500,000 units to date, and debuted at number 21 and number 15 on the Billboard Top 200 during their respective weeks of release.
