Dethklok is constantly being plotted against by a Council of men who are losing their control over the world.
Also, all of Dethklok's chefs and most of their other employees are cursed.
Dethklok displays a range of styles from death metal and melodeath to symphonic black metal. They are universally recognized as the world's greatest band, because they are blacker than the blackest black times infinity.
Dethklok's album (feat. the legendary Gene Hoglan on drums), titled "The Dethalbum", was released Sept. 25th and is available in regular and deluxe editions.
After the credits in every episode of Metalocalypse it says "All music by Brendon Small". In an interview found here he admits to using pro tools to edit and layer the songs for the band.
