Thumbs up Metalocalypse season one DVD

OK, so I'd seen maybe two or three episodes of Metalocalypse on Adult Swim, but that's about it. I found it pretty funny, so I went out yesterday and bought the Season 1 dvd (it was on sale at B.B.)

I watched the first disc...can I just say that it's the funniest show ever? Holy smokes.
I know it's on adult swim, but frankly, I'm amazed that they can get away with some of that stuff.

Skwisgaar and Murderface are probably the most quotable characters on TV since Eric Cartman, by the way. Anyway, I'm sure there are lots of die-hard Dethklok fans lurking around here, so here's the deal, post your favorite quotes from season one.

As Skwisgaar would say, "Haves ats its".

Obviously by my username you can tell I'm totally queer for the show.
It's absolutely hilarious, and even more so if you are into metal. The 2nd season in my opinion is not going nearly as well as the first one, although the 2nd is still funnier than most other stuff on TV right now.

I'm surprised more Jemsiters aren't loving this show since Mike Keneally plays lead guitar for the live shows.

The guy who created it is really talented. Not only does he do most of the voices and writing for the show, but all the music except for the drums. And for cartoon joke music, it's pretty kick ass

"Could you do me a favor, could ....could you have a great day?"

"Looks at this guys, asleep in some bloods..........This guys sleeps in bloods too"

Re: Metalocalypse season one DVD

I bought it when it first came out and I'm still pissed that they left everything edited on the DVD, I was really looking forward to seeing stuff like Tolki's strap on and actually hearing the swears, but no, its all still edited.

Re: Metalocalypse season one DVD

I particularly like the one extra that goes on for about 20 minutes, where Nathan is just reading Shakespeare.

The only thing I don't really like about it is the intentional gross out factor it goes for sometimes, it never really adds anything and once you've seen it a couple of times, it loses the shock value.

I'm a little surprised that so many people are convinced that the music is amazing though (I was working at a record store when the CD came out and had so many people explain how good it is). The lead work is alright, but overall it is rather generic. It doesn't really have the brilliance of Spinal Tap or even Pop! (Hugh Grant's fake band from Music and Lyrics) where you can listen to it and not realize that it is a fake band, until you start really paying attention to the lyrics and realizing how ridiculous they are. Like the Spinal Tap lyric "It feels so real that you can feel this feeling," which could passably sound like a real song lyric, until it hits you that 1/3 of the words in that line are "feel." Don't really get that with Dethklok, just the titles alone make them sound fake.

The show is funny, I particularly like how their strategy for recording songs is basically just harassing Toki. Music is alright and it fits, it just surprises me how many people think it is a genuinely a good band (first time I heard them, I just assumed they were satirizing the over the really over the top, delusional extreme metal bands).

Must the two things be mutually exclusive?

I think keeping it in perspective is the key...I'm not a huge death metal fan (I prefer vegetarian progressive grindcore, myself), but I can appreciate that Dethklok's music is pretty solid, if intentionally generic, "death metal". That's one of the whole points of the show; here we have a band that, while talented, is by all accounts a pretty run of the mill metal band, yet they've garnered the kind of social-class-defying fanbase and worldwide power (they're the 12th largest economy in the world) that even the most successful MAINSTREAM band could only dream about. This is through no particular action on the part of the band, of course. Again, the whole point is that the guys in Dethklok are, by and large, pretty much uniformly stupid and clueless about just about everything going on around them. Without even realizing it, they are de facto fascist dictators, and their fascist regime is more far-reaching and terrifying in its power and influence than any number of "real life" counterparts. Yet, they're simply a fairly average death metal band.

Let's just say that they're the best non-reality-based metal band going right now.

I think Devy did a pretty phenomenal job with Ziltoid, which was 100% him. Hehe.

Re: Metalocalypse season one DVD

Yep, but hey, its Devy, that guy could write a killer album with 1 eye, 1 arm, no gravity, a trashcan and a cat, plus while he's doing that, he would also be working on 2 other band's albums and touring around the world, while his skullet records yet another album all by itself.
