Dethklok - "Thunderhorse" - Song of the Day - (2/3/15)

Dethklok is a virtual super group with a following 100 times bigger than the Beatles. They are so famous that fans are willing to be slaughtered to death at their shows! The band is a cartoon animation from the show Metalocalypse on Adult Swim, the most cutting edge channel on cable TV in my opinion. Despite the band being a facade their heavy metal is very real, and it rips. The music is created by Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha, and they make fast paced metal straight from the depths of hell. There are now three albums as a result of growing popularity for the show, and they preform live with a special type of stage show including graphics of the characters to accompany the music. The band is comprised of front man Nathan Explosion, lead guitarist Skwisgaar Skwigelf, rhythm guitarist Toki Wartooth, bassist William Murderface, and drummer Pickles. The TV show lets us into the bands life off the stage and we find out just how different they are from their on-stage personalities. It's an absolutely hilarious depiction of how life would be in that situation. Metal is a very niche genre these days, but when comedy is added in the lyrics and in random scenarios on the show you can help but love it. This song is called "Thunderhorse" and this video is the original pilot, if you will, that would result in the show Metalocalypse, now one of the fan favorites on Adult Swim.
