Heavy metal juggernauts Dethklok have exploded onto the Billboard Top 200 again with the release of "Dethalbum II", selling nearly 45,000 copies in its first week. The ferocious new record from the stars of the Adult Swim series Metalocalypse debuted at #15 on the Billboard Top 200 six spots higher then their debut album "Dethalbum" back in 2007.
Metalocalypse creator Brendon Small had this to say about the chart debut of Dethklok's "Dethalbum II": "I'm both happy and humiliated that Dethalbum 2 reached number 15. Happy because we beat the first Dethalbum numbers and humiliated to have been beaten by our second album numbers by ourselves. Either way we're still not as good as the Archies and I never want to forget that. Having said all of that, dear god I am fantastic and talented."
The September 27 release of Metalocalypse: Dethklok's "Dethalbum II" coincides with the start of Season 3 of Metalocalypse on Adult Swim in November. The third season of Metalocalypse will pick up right where Season 2 left, and this season the episodes will be thirty minutes long.
Be sure to pick up the record-breaking new CD, Metalocalypse: Dethklok's "The Dethalbum II", and be sure to catch Dethklok live on tour.
