DETHKLOK Announce Metalocalypse Rock Opera Coming This October

Written by Sarah Bella on May 12, 2013

It’s finally here. Metalocalypse creator Brendon Small has been hinting at an announcement about our favourite fictional metal band on Twitter and he’s finally let the cat out of the bag – a Metalocalypse rock opera will be airing this October.

Small pleased DETHKLOK fans everywhere after tweeting “What happens to Toki? Metalocalypse; the Doomstar Requiem. A 1hr complete ROCK OPERA w/ 1 hr of brand new original music. Coming soon. RT”. As well as creating the show, Small writes all of DETHKLOK’s music, as well as voicing singer Nathan Explosion, lead guitarist Skwisgaar Skwigelf and drummer Pickles.

Adult Swim have released this snippet on the special:

In Metalocalypse: The Doom Star Requiem, we pick up directly after the abduction of Dethklok guitarist Toki Wartooth in the season 4 finale. With his life in danger his only salvation can come from the four most selfish human celebrities on earth—his bandmates, extreme metal band DETHKLOK. Will they be able to get past their own egos to help someone besides themselves? Find out in this one-hour heavy metal rock opera special with a completely original score. Created by Brendon Small, Metalocalypse: The Doom Star Requiem airs in October. Animated one-hour special.

Sounds like the 1-hour special will wrap up all of those season 4 loose ends, but no word on whether we can expect a season 5.
