Dethklok!! DETHKLOK!!

September 25, 2009

** I did have a picture to go along with this post, but for some unknown reason I couldn’t upload it. So just, um, imagine it, kay guys?**

Metalocalypse is a series of shorts on Adult Swim about a fictional metal band called Dethklok. Dethklok are the most famous band in the world, and although they are awesome musicians they are all absolute tards.

The frontman is Nathan Explosion, the guitarists are Skwisgar Skwigelf and Toki Wartooth, the bassist is William Murderface and the drummer is Pickles. Episodes are about the ridiculous adventures of the band, and the Tribunal which monitors them and tries to make sure they don’t cause too much damage.

As an example of their adventures, one episode of the first season has them going to Finland to apologize for accidentally wrecking the country during their last tour. Hilarity ensues. In another episode they have to do something for charity to avoid some taxes, so they adopt a fat kid.

Most of the humour in the show is accessible even to non-metal fans. The metal humour is background stuff like Dimmu Burgers or the supermarket called Finntroll’s. The music in the show is actually of a really high quality, and as a fan of melodic death metal I really enjoy it. The song topics are fairly ridiculous, such as Murmaider (it’s about mermaid murder) and Hatredcopter.

There are currently two seasons, with the third airing in November. There are also two Dethalbums, the first of which I recommend and the second of which only just got released, so I’ve yet to pick it up.

I really like this show, and I think everyone should watch it. Even if only for the episode where Murderface plays his bass…er…hands-free.



** Nathan: But I have to say, if the fans are out there after listening… you know, we always say a lot of stuff like, you know, we hate you, go die, you know…
Murderface: And we mean it!
Toki: Yeah, we means it!
Nathan: …Go eat glass…But the truth is- actually, guys, the truth is we do mean it. **


Nazi Superpowers

September 18, 2009

Been a while since I posted huh? Well I deserve a rest for my 31 post August. Stupid self-imposed schedule.

Anyway, today I bring you yet another project I’d love to get around to doing but will probably never amount to more than this post.

This project is basically super-powered Nazis. Sure, there’s a line I’m probably crossing, but whatever. And actually, I’ve sort of kept a lot of the ideology away from the characters. Well, some of the characters.

What follows are images I made on the currently alpha version Heromachine 3. The tool is a fun way to lose an evening, and it is getting much more professional in it’s utility. I look forward to playing around with it when it’s finished.

Alright, I am incredibly creepy. My first thought after writing ‘I look forward to playing around with it when it’s finished’ was someone saying that about a little girl. Because once it’s matured, you wanna touch.

I’m sorry. That was uncalled for, and also rather terrible. Also it was distracting, BACK TO THE POST.

This is the first of the designs I made for the team. It’s rather simple and, hopefully, striking. He is the leader, and a figurehead for the idea of the Master Race.

The second, and my favourite of the designs, is a soldier-type. The symbol on his chest is meant to look like ‘SS’.


I think he looks badass. Thoughts?

Anyway, there are more, but I think I’ll keep them to myself for now. If nothing ever comes of this project (likely) then I may post them as well.


** The masks remind me of Deadpool, particularly on one of my other designs. Wasn’t my intent, but he has a very awesome mask, so yeah. **
