‘Metalocalypse: Dethklok Dethalbum III’ Debuts At #10 On The Billboard Top 200



Adult Swim announced on Thursday that Dethklok’s new album, Metalocalypse: Dethklok Dethalbum III, has debuted at #10 on the Billboard Top 200 charts in its first week. The album has also debuted at #1 on the Hard Music Albums chart. Metalocalypse: Dethklok Dethalbum III was released last week via Williams Street Records, the network’s independent music label. This is the highest debut charting position that Dethklok has garnered since the beginning of the show.

When asked to comment about the #10 debut, Dethklok co-creator Brendon Small stated, “Thanks to the fans for actually buying music in a world where they don’t have to.”

Metalocalypse: Dethklok Dethalbum III is available now in a variety of formats including a standard CD, clean CD and Deluxe Edition CD/DVD combo, which includes a 32-minute behind-the-scenes documentary of the making of Dethalbum III, as well as music videos and more. A vinyl edition of the album with special etching will also be released on November 6, 2012. 

Dethklok recently announced a North American headline tour with support from All That Remains, Machine Head, and special guest The Black Dahlia Murder. The tour kicks off in Norfolk, VA next Tuesday, October 30th. The tour, featuring the band from the Metalocalypse animated series, will make more than 30 stops throughout the United States and Canada before coming to an end in Atlanta, GA. The Black Dahlia Murder will open each show, with Machine Head and All That Remains alternating direct support positions in the line-up in each city. 

When discussing the upcoming tour, Brendon Small stated, “Dethklok are excited to be a part of the best tour of 2012.  We spared no expense on production for the tour. We are unleashing tons of new animation, new comedy, and new sketches and are very excited to play many new songs and can’t wait for new people to see our show. I’ll be honest, I don’t know when we will be able to pull off anything this massive again, so don’t miss it.”
