Alfred Music is thrilled to partner with Cartoon Network Enterprises, the licensing and merchandising arm of Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, to release Dethklok: Dethalbum III
Dethklok, the virtual band featuring Nathan Explosion, Skwisgaar Skwigelf, Toki Wartooth, Pickles, and William Murderface from Adult Swim's show Metalocalypse, returns with a tongue-in-cheek vengeance on Dethalbum III. This album-matching songbook contains all 12 songs from the record in authentic guitar TAB transcriptions including “Crush the Industry,” “Andromeda,” “The Galaxy,” “Starved,” “Killstardo Abominate,” and more.
Created by Brendon Small (Home Movies) and Tommy Blacha (Da Ali G Show), the Metalocalypse television series launched on Adult Swim in 2006. The band features Brendan Small on guitar, Bryan Beller on bass, and double-bass drum phemon Gene Goglan on drums. One of the most popular series on the cable network, Metalocalypse portrays Dethklok as a band with unheard-of popularity, even ranking them as the seventh-largest economy on earth. The band's first and second albums, The Dethalbum and Dethklok: Dethalbum II were received with critical acclaim and sales success, breaking records for highest charting death metal album. Dethklok: Dethalbum III was released on October 16, 2012, peaking at number 10 on the Billboard 200 chart to break the record previously held by Dethklok: Dethalbum II as the highest charting death metal album. The album-matching songbooks for each album release have been among the bestselling album-matching songbooks of the year.
As part of Alfred’s ongoing commitment to improving our environment, this book is printed on 100% recycled paper stock.
Dethklok: Dethalbum III is now available for $22.99 at music retail stores and at alfred.com.
