Product Description

Metalocalypse: Season Two (DVD)

Amazon.com

Black metal fans, fear not--the men of Dethklok have returned to make your world a little darker (and funnier) with Season 2 of the animated series Metalocalypse. Though the show is as densely plotted--often to absurd levels--as any Adult Swim program, and riddled with inside references to the metal scene (from which spring many of the guest vocal talents, including members of Metallica, Dimmu Borgir and Arch Enemy), one doesn't have to be a fan of either to enjoy the show. It does help, however, to have an appreciation for dark humor, as the season opener, "Dethecution" illustrates; having survived the near-fatal attack by their nemeses, a military cabal called the Tribunal, Dethklok decides to return to public life by giving a concert that doubles as a mass execution for 200 death-row inmates. Dramatic changes like this--and the mayhem that follows them--are the crux of Metalocalypse's second season, and include guitarist Toki taking lessons from an ancient master to up his value to the band ("Dethlessons"), an ill-advised trip to the Amazon in search of hallucinogenic drugs (a terrific Herzog spoof titled--what else?-- "Dethcarraldo"), drummer Pickles' disastrous reunion with his former flash metal band (the two-part "Snakes 'N Barrels), and the cliffhanger conclusion, which finds Dethklok releasing its latest album at the same time the former fans-turned-terrorists known as the Revengencers launch an all-out assault on them ("Dethrelease"). Burning questions in regard to the origins of the buffoonish Dr. Rockso and Nathan's love life are also addressed, and fans get a deeper glimpse into the band's lunatic lives, most notably in the hilarious "Dethwedding," which introduces Pickles' deadbeat brother Seth. Again, enjoyment of the show is entirely dependent on one's tolerance for absurd and often crude humor, but its lampooning of rock excess remains as sharply focused as ever.

As with the first season set, the extras are strewn about the two-disc set in the form of Easter Eggs, though they're not particularly hard to find on the main and episode selection menus. Once located, fans will find everything from extended scenes and videos for "Mermaider" and "Bloodrocuted" to clips of the band reading excerpts from Shakespeare's "Titus Andronicus" or simply listing other metal outfits they like. Each are clever in their own way, and do much to underscore Metalocalypse's party-till-you-explode aesthetic. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars 6 Stars November 20, 2008
By 2 cents
Format:DVD
If you like Metal, _This Is Spinal Tap_, "Beavis and Butthead", the mockumentary genre, lots of death and explosions, other Adult Swim shows, brilliant writing and animation, great comedy, dark humor, buy this DVD collection now. Support quality programs on Adult Swim. They ruthlessly kill off good shows as seemingly as often as people get offed in Metalocalypse. Season 2 sees the return of characters introduced in the first series, some of whom viewers were given the impression were probably dead or gone for good. This was a pleasant surprise as is the further development of the characters. There's more to some of them than you first realize. Season 2 also continues to follow a certain strange top secret orginization monitor and cause trouble for the band. It does have me curious how they'll wrap that up. I do know this - the concluding episodes of seasons 1 and 2 are so kick *** they leave you wanting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fish with tits... titty fish November 30, 2008
Format:DVD
The second season of Metalocalypse was every bit as brutal as the first. Buy it on the internet, or at your local food libraries.

If nothing else, buy it for the episode where they release a clothing line; or the fantastic Dave Lee Roth-parodying Dr Rockzo's rehab episode, Cleanzo.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but flawed. December 6, 2008
Format:DVD
The music is amazing, the episodes are funny, and the story is good. However, if you want to see some good special features, you will find that there are practically none. First of all, they're ALL hidden, and though easy to find if you know the definition of "Easter egg", once they are found, only one...maybe two are actually worth watching. There is one that shows Ofdensen (band manager) trying to fit in with the band after Dethsources, and the other worth watching, is the music video for Murmaider (from the concert). All the other features are completely useless and a waste of time. And if you were expecting a revelation hidden somewhere like the one with Selatcia in Season 1 DVD, don't hold your breath. Nowhere to be found.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for fans! November 29, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed season one a lot so I just went ahead and ordered season two and I'm pretty sure it's even better than the first. The DVD has a decent amount of extras, a least what would be expected from any other television DVD. The presentation is done well and the bonus features are sort of hidden throughout the menu.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally They Listened!!!!! December 5, 2008
Format:DVD
Just pick it up today, and it's anamorphic enhanced for 16x9 tv's. Thank you Adult Swim, Williams Street, WB, and Brandon Smalls. Oh! don't let the outer box fool you it states: Standard Version, that's a printing mistake. All the episodes are anamorphic enhanced.

5.0 out of 5 stars TWISTED HUMOR May 30, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Metalocalypse is a disaster. But it's a great one. It's basically a fairy tale about a death-metal band ( that also happens to be a real band, in the real world... put together by Brendon Small..., the same guy who created the Adult Swim series called Home Movies ), called Dethklok, and the their total failure at everything they try to do, except playing their special brand of music. That's the one thing they're good at. But , despite their naive and childish views of the world and their self-centered focus on their desires, from wanting to be fashion designers, public relations experts, politicans, to playing practical jokes on each other all the time, they are basically well-meaning guys who do not really want to see people get hurt and prefer not to engage in violence ( at least not against innocent bystanders or their fans ) ..., though they sing about bloodshed, death and violence at every concert. Their fans, in the series, are another matter. They are lunatics and often end up dying in a bloodbath due to some unforseen problem at a Dethklok concert. Every episode has a short animated music video vocaled by Brendon Small, who also plays guitar.

There are a lot of blood and guts splattering around in this series, there are also scenes of torture and lots of bad language. So, why do I recommend it? Because it's a great satire of real "metal" bands and their obnoxious excessive lifestyles. These guys are so dumb at everything except music, you can't help but laugh as they simply try to do ordinary things, like go shopping..., and totally screw it up.

Interesting note; Mark Hamil ( of Star Wars fame ) , and veteran actor Malcolm McDowell perform many of the voice overs for characters ( other than the band members ) , in this series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Push and pull October 8, 2009
Format:DVD
The cartoon show with the best riffs in town is back and primed for another assault on the worlds pay TV channels. Sliding all the way to a four star release by the skin of its teeth this double DVD release of season two of Metalocalypse exerts a certain push/pull effect on the viewer. Certainly there aren't enough laugh out loud moments to really rate this as five star entertainment and the lack of guffaws is an issue - as is the creators seemingly trying to walk a tightrope between putting lots of insider references into the show and trying to appeal to a wider audience, the latter hope I would suggest is a futile one.

Advantages of the second series is that the audience now knows what they are getting and the characters foibles are ones that we now look forward to. All the main players have been introduced and there are a number of peripheral people who make regular appearances, their very familiarity making them connect with the viewer. Also by now the viewer has figured out the accents of Skwisgar and Toki and the incessant mumbling style of voice given to Murderface. Though for your first viewing the subtitles do still come in handy.

Your viewpoint on this series will to a certain extent rely on your link to your inner 15 year old. The flippant self absorbed attitudes and cartoon violence as humour schtick works for me but I can see many people feeling it is just a tad too juvenile and the resolutions of the plot of some episodes a bit too contrived. Still if you have an affinity for the heavy rock genre you are sure to find plenty here to amuse you and as silly entertainment it certain hits the spot if you fall into that category. And the menu is easily navigated though the bonus features of meagre.

Overall I'm not sure whether this concept has the legs for too many more series but for the time being I'm still on board.
