Dethklok is a virtual band on Adult Swim's (adult-oriented cable) Metalocalypse, and a reality band to perform melodic death metal live. It was created by Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha. Dethklok is an example of comedy rock (with satirical impressions, such as with Stan Freburg). Their first album, "The Dethalbum," was released in '07.
"Dethalbum II" came out in '09. In Metalocalypse, the band is depicted as widely popular, and was supported by the real band's tour, "And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead." Small described the experience as "a Disney ride, but with murder." 2011 dates include the Mayhem Festival.
