Adult Swim Titles to DVD in December
On December 2, Metalocalypse: Season Two will be released by Warner Home Video. Along with featuring all the latest escapades of destruction, murder and mayhem from Dethklok — the world’s most brutal and incompetent heavy metal band — this long-awaited release features a plethora of bonus features that fans will have to find. That’s right. Anything worthwhile demands some work after all! This perfect stocking stuffer arrives after Dethklok’s debut CD — Dethklok: The Dethalbum — became the fastest selling death metal album of all time, debuting at #21 on the Billboard Top 100 list.
Aqua Teen Hunger Force: Volume 6 follows on December 16. For the first time, creators Dave Willis (Squidbillies) and Matt Maiellero (12 Oz. Mouse) will debut four never-before-seen episodes on the DVD, along with nine others from the series’ sixth season. The DVD is also loaded with bonus materials including "I’m Pissed" — Carl Sports Blogs, the "Radical Axis Presents Radical Axis Presents" behind-the-scenes featurette, commentary and more! In this latest installment, Frylock, Master Shake and Meatwad once again join forces with their lewd neighbor Carl and do their best impersonation of crime fighters who never actually come close to fighting crime.
Title: Metalocalypse: Season 2
Street Date: 12/2/08
Created by Brendon Small (Home Movies) and Tommy Blacha (Da Ali G Show), Metalocalypse follows the on and off-stage adventures of the fictional Dethklok, the insanely popular animated Norwegian heavy metal band. In addition to being the world’s most brutal band members, Nathan Explosion, William "Murderface," Skwisgaar Skwigelf, Toki Wartooth and Pickles are also stupid…dangerously stupid. From sold out concerts to late-night snack-attacks, the animated heavy metal band creates a wave of mayhem, death and destruction wherever they go. But thanks to their "really good lawyer" they manage to walk away legally unscathed on every occasion. Since debuting on Adult Swim in 2006, the series has become one of the highest-rated original series on the network and the second season was watched by more than five million 18-34 year-old viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. Moreover, the band’s debut CD — Dethklok: The Dethalbum — has become the fastest selling death metal album of all time since debuting at #21 on Billboard’s Top 100 list, and a real-live version of the animated band led by Brendon Small recently completed a sold-out 28-city tour.
Title: Aqua Teen Hunger Force: Volume 6
Street Date: 12/16/08
Aqua Teen Hunger Force is the epic tale of Frylock, Master Shake and Meatwad, three human-sized food products looking for acceptance, friendship and yes, even love, in the wilds of New Jersey. The rest of the time, they do things like try to figure out ways to make money or hang out in their neighbor Carl’s above-ground swimming pool, and stuff like that. The show, which recently completed its sixth year, consistently ranks as one of the most popular television series on Adult Swim, which is the #1 ranked programming block in its time period on basic cable with men 18-24, according to Nielsen Media Research.
