New Movie ‘Metalocalypse: Army of the Doomstar’ and ‘Metalocalypse: The Complete Series’ Come Home This August!

It doesn’t get more metal than this! The long-awaited return of Adult Swim’s favorite heavy metal adventure Metalocalypse arrives with an all-new, full-length animated movie. Written and directed by series co-creator Brendon Small, Metalocalypse: Army of the Doomstar brings the heaviest metal band ever created back together again for an action-packed journey. The movie will be available to purchase Digitally and on Blu-ray Disc August 21, 2023.

After the heroic rescue of Toki Wartooth, DETHKLOK frontman Nathan Explosion finds himself traumatized in a BRUTAL professional and romantic flat-spin all while he is tasked with fulfilling the prophecy and confronting the ultimate songwriting challenge: write the SONG OF SALVATION and save the planet. Can Nathan Explosion look beyond his brutally damaged ego to save his band, stop the Metalocalypse, and finally face the ultimate evil: Salacia?

As a special highlight, fans can also look forward to the release of two full-length albums this year.

Both albums will be released through WaterTower Music, who today released “Aortic Desecration”, the first new music from Dethalbum IV, and DETHKLOK’s first new music in almost 10 years! Dethalbum IV will also be available on vinyl through Mondo, and vinyl preorders are now live.
