At this point in his professional career, Berklee graduate Brendon Small has already achieved a Cult-like status thanks to the critical and commercial acclaim of his TV hit series Metalocalypse, and for the music he writes and performs for the show’s “fictional” Death Metal band Deathlok. Now he is leaving aside his Extreme Metal influences and brings us “Galaktikon”, a Rock/Metal concept album about the troubled life of a superhero after divorcing his former “dream girl”. Is this the comic-oriented, crazy stuff that people expects from this guy? Yes! But… how does it translate musically?
Dethklok is both a virtual band featured in the Adult Swim animated program Metalocalypse, as well as a real band created to perform the band’s melodic death metal music in live shows.
