The Metalocalypse has begun
Verified purchase
When you're the most popular band in music, the world's twelfth-largest economy, and guarantors of all things metal, dealing with such mundane matters as obnoxious relatives, tax issues, and sycophantic fans, along with the occasional killer troll or assassination attempt, can be a real hassle. However, it makes an ingenious concept for a satirical TV show, and the warped minds behind Adult Swim's Metalocalypse take full advantage of their subject mater, taking aim at heavy-metal excess, celebrity worship, and pop-cultural stupidity through the adventures of animated death-metal supergroup Dethklok. The show's creators combine an obvious knowledge and appreciation of extreme music with an understanding of its inherent goofiness, and show a genuine affection for their characters even while poking fun at their complete lack of aptitude at anything other than metal. The tone is enjoyably gonzo throughout, as the satire shares space with deadpan humor and lots of gratuitously over-the-top, lovingly rendered gore; the animation is uniformly first-rate, especially in its attention to detail (the band's enormous helicopter and its forbidding dwellings at Mordhaus are especially impressive); and the music itself is surprisingly well-played and catchy in spite of its humorous intent, although the comic aspect is undercut a little by the near-indecipherability of the lyrics.

For their part, the band members walk a fine line between characters and caricatures, but all provide more than their share of laughs: brutish frontman Nathan Explosion, dog-faced, hate-filled bassist William Murderface, English-challenged Scandinavian guitar virtuosos Skwisgaar Skwigelf and Toki Wartooth, and hard-drinking drummer Pickles. In spite (or perhaps because) of their massive wealth and fame, the band members are essentially overgrown children, living in a perpetual state of immaturity, ignorance, and self-centeredness, with their no-nonsense manager constantly struggling to limit the fallout of their self-destructive actions. The show heavily exploits the idea of a band as a dysfunctional family, with the members of Dethklok showing an undeniable bond whether learning the ways of the blues (Bluesklok) or undergoing band therapy (Performance Klok). The later episodes even provide a few strong character moments, from Toki's attempts to shed his nice-guy image (Dethkids) to Murderface's quest for spiritual fulfillment after a near-death incident (Religionklok) to Nathan Explosion's twisted relationship with a woman who's all wrong for him (Girlfriendklok).

Providing a thread through all the craziness is a top-secret cabal of political, religious, and military leaders, led by a shadowy figure with an eerie voice and a sketchy past, that secretly monitors the band's activities from afar and trots out a never-ending succession of hilarious experts to pontificate on the danger of the latest developments to come out of Mordhaus. Apparently, in addition to their enormous popularity, Dethklok may be the fulfillment of an apocalyptic Sumerian prophecy, which makes them even more of a threat than their music alone. Everything culminates in the brilliant concluding episode The Metalocalypse Has Begun, which brings the events of the season to an action-packed, violent head at a live performance in the icy environs of the Baltic Sea. Its the perfect way to cap the season, and sets the stage for even more insanity to come in season two. I've only briefly sampled the second season, but if it's as good as its predecessor I should be through it in no time.

Horrible, both discs were completely defective and did not work at all, waste of my money.
Verified purchase
Totally disappointed... I was so so excited for this to show up, but when it did, BOTH of the 2 discs were completely defective, they weren't scratched or anything but I tried them in 3 different devices and not only did they bot work, they kind of caused the systems to be buggy, which makes me wonder if the discs were possibly even fakes??

Hilarious on many levels
Verified purchase
So when I was young, I was a huge metal fan and worked on crews for many a metal band. I grew out of it for the most part, but the first time I caught this show on TV I was laughing my butt off.

Mind you, a lot of the humor is really for metal fans and those of you that are not into metal music or never have been may not get some of it, writing it off as stupid. Let me tell you, to the correct audience, this is one of the funniest things ever.

From the song called "Mermaid Murder" on the album of metal that was written for fishes (Not for Human ears), to the 80's rock and roll clown Dr. Rockzo (Who does cocaine), I enjoyed every second of this first season and I am eagerly awaiting the second.

Good thing also that this show is one of those 15 minutes per episode shows because I could see the show getting a bit old after watching for 30 minutes or so.

The characters are funny and well written. I love it.

The show with the Zazz Factor!
Verified purchase
**Warning! Contains stuff that might be construed as being spoilers!**

You might think it's all fun and games being in the world's most brutal metal band, but you'd be wrong. Dethklok have it tough. Throngs of insanely loyal fans, nubile groupies and their very own set of Deathcopters aren't much comfort when various entities such as a Scandinavian water troll, a secret government agency and an insane celebrity girlfriend are all trying to destroy them. Moreover, they're always getting into wacky shenanigans and experiencing deep existentialist crises which ultimately help them to (almost) learn important life lessons (sort of). Sure, it's touchy-feely. But it's also TOTALLY METAL. And more importantly, it's probably one of the funniest shows I've seen lately. I'm not a big Adult Swim fan, but this is one gem of a show. And the DVD set DOES have special features...you've just got to play around with your remote to find them all.

Once and future metal heads, working musicians, animation fans and lovers of dark comedy must watch this.
Verified purchase
This may be the most brilliant, deranged, hilarious and somehow uplifting show I have ever seen. It is unapologetically gory and cynical, but still somehow life-affirming, maybe even inspiring. The animation, voice acting, and of course the music are all superb. If you love metal, you already love Dethklok. If you don't love metal, you will soon love Dethklok. Don't let the difficult-to-understand dialog put you off in the first couple episodes. I didn't get it at first, but It grew on me quickly.

The Show is OK, The DVD Set is a Great Gift For Those Who Love The Show
Verified purchase
I bought this as a gift for someone who really enjoys the show. I'm not a huge fan of the show but it did have some creative cracked out moments. So as far as the 4 stars goes that's a mixture of my personal feelings and the person who received the gift. I would provide a 3 star rating based on my feelings about the show. My friend would provide 5 stars. If I was to purchase this series again I would look for a blu-ray copy but it would be a gift not for myself.

Funny but play songs full length.
Verified purchase
A fairly funny series. The only thing that I don't like is that they never play any of the songs full length. I actually think that Brendon Small is a very talented musician and would like the series more if they played his songs full length.
