Yesterday's announcement of Tim and Eric coming to the Glass House has got me in an Adult Swim-kind of mood, so it would be remiss not to note season 2 of "Metalocalypse" is out on DVD today.
The cartoon is co-created by Brendon Small, the man behind the excellent "Home Movies." It's nominally about an American/Scandinavian band Dethklok and their various misadventures, but really about so much more. Metalheads love it, but even those not so into metal can find some well-earned guffaws.
Small anchored an actual real-life Dethklok tour earlier this year, alongside heavy metal studs like Gene Hoglan. I was at the Tempe show, I have never rocked quite so hard nor had so many teenage boys sweat on me (despite whatever disquieting rumors you may have read online).
The best happy birthday song ever after the jump!
