Dethklok is the biggest, baddest, and most famous heavy metal band in the world. The quintet, consisting of Americans Nathan Explosion (vocals), William Murderface (bass), and Pickles the Drummer, along with Scandinavian guitarists Toki Wartooth and Skwisgaar Skwigelf, have to deal with their fame and other situations in their lives, all the while being monitored by a government organization out to destroy them.

The name of the grocery store in the first episode is "Fintroll's" a reference to the Finnish folk-metal band Finntroll. Other references to metal bands include the restaurants "Burzum" and "Dimmu Burger" (as a reference to "Dimmu Borgir") and the hardware store "Gorgoroth". See more »

This cartoon is excruciatingly gory and hardcore. Norwegian death metal has never before been so grandly captured. Whether it is the grinding assault of the plot lines or the melodic head thrashing tunes, Dethklok will rock Metalocalypse straight into your heart, chew it up, spit it out and throw it at the audience.
Gruesomely detailed background combine with barely distinguishable dialog, glorious flowing hair and sporadic screaming and violence mix with normal every day events for these world famous rock stars, known also as "The most cultural influence in the world".
This show is in no way intended for children, and is showed on Sunday nights on Adult Swim.
