Dethklok announces new album

Official press release: Williams Street Records announced today details on the most highly-anticipated death metal album release of the year -- and it's for none other than the animated band from Adult Swim's Metalocalypse. On September 8th, the world's most brutal animated band, Dethklok, will once again reign supreme with the all-new release of Dethklok: The Dethalbum II. Featuring the band from the hit Adult Swim's series, the album features twelve full-length tracks detailing Dethklok's exploits in murder, mayhem and all things brutal. Written by series co-creator Brendon Small and recorded alongside legendary drummer Gene Hoglan, Dethklok: The Dethalbum II will be released as both a standard edition and a two-disc deluxe edition on CD and digital download beginning September 8th. Additionally, a limited edition vinyl of the album will be released in to local record shops on September 29th. The track listing for Dethklok's The Dethalbum II is as follows: 01. Bloodlines 02. The Gears 03. Burn the Earth 04. Laser Canon Deth Sentence 05. Black Fire Upon Us 06. Deth Support 07. The Cyborg Slayers 08. I Tamper with the Evidence at the Murder Site of Odin 09. Murmaider II: The Water God 10. Comet Song 11. Symmetry 12. Volcano *The Deluxe edition will include a bonus DVD with 52 minutes of never-before-released music videos featured in the 2008 Dethklok tour. Dethklok: The Dethalbum II is a follow up to Dethklok's The Dethalbum, which shattered sales records when it was released to retail in October 2007. With more than 34,000 copies in its first week, the album became the highest charting death metal album ever before going on to sell more than 300,000 copies to date. Co-created by Tommy Blacha and Small, the Metalocalypse television series follows the on and off-stage adventures of the world's most brutal band as they create a wave of mayhem, death and destruction wherever they go. Since debuting on Adult Swim in 2006, the series has become one of the network's highest-rated original series and the second season was watched by more than five million 18-34 year-old viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. The new season of Metalocalypse will debut on Adult Swim this fall.
