Dethklok Make New Album Under Galakticon 2 Banner: Dethklok News


On Wednesday Dethklok Make New Album Under Galakticon 2 Banner was a top story. Here is the recap: (Metal Hammer) The members of Dethklok have recorded a new album - which they'll have to release under a different name. Drummer Gene Hoglan reveals exclusively to Metal Hammer that he and Dethklok mastermind Brendon Small have made an album that they will release under the band name Galakticon 2, as they no longer hold the rights to the Dethklok name.

The fictional, animated band Dethklok were the stars of hit Adult Swim TV series Metalocalypse, which was cancelled by the channel in 2015 after the fourth season had aired.

Dethklok released four real-life albums, the last of which was 2013's The Doomstar Requiem, and creator Small was hopeful that a fifth season would be approved.

Now Hoglan explains that he and Small can't call their band Dethklok - but they've made what would have been a fifth Dethklok album. Hoglan tells Metal Hammer: "Brendon is the guy to speak officially about the future of Dethklok per se, but one thing that I do know is I was down in LA doing a few days with Brendon on a new project that happens to be called Galakticon 2.

"All I know is this Galakticon 2 album sure sounds a whole lot like Dethklok and sure has the approach of Dethklok.. .but it's called Galakticon 2. That's the name of the band because we can't use Dethklok any more." Read more - here.
