Metalocalypse is an American animated tv sequence, created by Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha, which premiered on August 6, 2006 on Grownup Swim. The tv program facilities across the bigger than life dying metallic band Dethklok, and infrequently portrays darkish and macabre content material, together with such topics as violence, dying, and the drawbacks of fame, with extraordinarily hyperbolic black humor; which accounts for the cartoon’s constant TV-MA ranking. The present will be seen as each a parody and celebration of heavy metallic tradition.
The music, written by guitarist/creator Brendon Small, is credited to the band, and is featured in many of the episodes. The animation is usually rigorously synced to the music, with the chord positions and fingering of the guitar elements proven in some element.
One of many logos of the present is having the standard “bleeps” for excessive profanity changed by pinch harmonics.
