As the October 27 premiere date of "Metalocalypse: the Doomstar Requiem a Klok Opera" steadily approaches, Dethklok have decided to premiere the soundtrack's extra song "Blazing Star."
Featuring production work of Brendon Small and Emmy-winning composer Bear McCreary, the song was exclusively premiered over on Loudwire. Make sure to check it out below, the orchestral moments are nothing short of epic.
Also featured on the soundtrack is the legendary metal drummer Gene Hoglan, as well as bassist Bryan Beller from Joe Satriani's band and guitarist Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa, Joe Satriani).
"This is not like anything we've ever done," Small said. "This is a full-blown musical - metal combined with symphonic passages, classic musical theater, high stakes drama, emotional moments, and yes - totally ridiculous comedy. I drew from all of my influences to make this the most unique project I could dream of. This is easily the best thing we've ever done with the show and the music. I can't wait for you to hear it."
The Dethklok opera will air on October 27 at midnight on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. The full soundtrack will hit the shelves two days later, on October 29.
