Genre: Heavy Metal Animation
If you thought that the guys in Dethklok were doomed and done for after the massive assault that was launched on them during the finale of “Metalocalypse” Season 1 then I am happy to report that the rumors of their deaths have been greatly exaggerated. Yes, the Tribunal and its legions tried their best and did a lot of damage but no band members were killed in the process. Now they have returned for Season 2 of the series and while it begins with the group in seclusion for fear of further attacks, the antics and mayhem that often come part in parcel during their daily routine is very much the same as it was during the first season. Despite their necessary seclusion the band seems hardly phased by the attacks and still treat each other as awful as they had in the earlier episodes. There is a lot of verbal and physical abuse going on and of course a whopping dose of very colorful language which seems to have been increased this time around. The misadventures that the group undertakes this time around finds them getting fashion upgrades, attending a family wedding and a funeral as well as becoming intervention specialists for a cocaine addled Dr. Rockzo. Of course each episode concludes with most of the surrounding cast of players being decimated and the band unscathed and unaffected but that is to be expected when one is talking about Dethklok. Legal Eagle Ofdensen tries his best at each and every turn to be the voice of reason to deaf ears and as result it’s during one episode he finds himself being replaced by the band with someone cooler.
