Death Meets Dethklok as Adult Swim Runs a 'Darksiders'/'Metalocalypse' Promo Friday

15 August 2012 8:00 AM, PDT | MTV Multiplayer | See recent MTV Multiplayer news »

The Cartoon Network late night programming block will be running a two-minute promo Friday night bringing together the world's biggest metal band with the embodiment of all mortality.

Nothing at all weird about that.

More details and images after the jump.

The promo will run during Friday night's Metalocalypse marathon, which is running from 11:00 Pm to 1:00 Am on Adult Swim, so you can probably expect it to repeat a few times if you miss it. The spot is being animated by Titmouse Inc., the studio responsible for Metalocalypse, which is currently in its fourth, world-burning season (seriously, the current storyline sees the band trying to fend off the end of the world).

The series was created by writer, voice actor, and musician Brendon Small who also fronts the band when it performs live (I had a chance to see them perform during San Diego Comic-Con--it was on an »

Is Adult Swim Stuck in a Rut of Nostalgia Bait?

25 May 2012 11:10 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Describing the current slate of programming on Adult Swim, which takes over Cartoon Network every evening from 9pm to 6am, is like trying to explain why crude sex and drug jokes get old after a while. There’s nothing wrong with “Venture Brothers,” Odd Future’s “Loiter Squad” or Brendon Small’s “Metalocalypse," other than their numbing similarity to each other and so many shows that have come before. It's been a mainstay in many college dorm rooms on Sunday nights, but Adult Swim is still relying on the same three notes, sounded in between endless “King of the Hill” reruns, to fill up seven days of late night programming. Is Adult Swim stuck in a backward-looking loop at what used to work for the network in its prime? Since the next big plan is to resurrect its old programming block Toonami, the answer is yes.

Metalocalypse co-creator Brendon Small announces new solo album

20 February 2012 10:03 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Looks like Brendon Small has been toiling away again in his kreative-spelling deth-metal faktory again. The co-creator of the Adult Swim series Metalocalypse announced his next project today: Brendon Small’s Galaktikon, a “high stakes intergalactic extreme rock album.” Small, one of the musicians behind the real-life band Dethklok that performs the music for the TV show’s virtual band Dethklok, says the solo effort Galaktikon should be viewed as “an audio comic book, an over-acted chamber drama, a ridiculous premise that takes itself way too seriously all the way to the end.” Galaktikon, Small’s follow-up side project after »
