Dethklok will emerge from the Mordhaus this coming weekend to headline the Mayhem Festival in San Bernadino, California.

As bass player Bryan Beller says in an e-mail update, "It's the only Dethklok show this year. If the whole audience dies somehow, then it will be just like the television show. (Yeah, it's an in-joke, I know. Sue me.) We go on dead last, 11 p.m., after Godsmack, Distubred, and 34,926 other bands. Maybe the audience will be dead before we go on. Either way, we're playing for somewhere around 30,000 people, so we thought it would be a good idea to rehearse this week so we don't suck or get killed ourselves."

The Dethklok live band also features "Metalocalypse" creator and Gibson signature artist Brendon Small on guitars and vocals, Mike Keneally (solo, Frank Zappa, Steve Vai) on guitar, and Gene Hoglan (Strapping Young Lad, Fear Factory) on drums.

Beller and Keneally will also be performing separately as members of Steve Vai and Joe Satriani's respective bands at a benefit concert for Cliff Cultreri at the House of Blues in West Hollywood on Sunday night. The event will be streamed on Steve Vai's GuitarTV.com website.

Thanks for the report to Peter Hodgson, Gibson.com

    I hope they don't die. I think I speak for everyone in the band that them dying is not good (not exact quote, but it's the jist of it)

    This. I also wish Testament and Hatebreed were playing that day as well, but I might go just for Machine Head anyway.

    Sarcastic troll is sarcastic. If you would actually take your head out of your ass for a minute and listen to their music, you'll find that the rhythms and solos are just as complex and awesome as any other metal band.
