Earlier this month is was revealed that Dethklok would return in The Doomstar Requiem, a one hour special on Adult Swim. As with the four preceding seasons, new Metalocalypse means new music from mastermind Brendon Small. The first new track “Blazing Star” from the soundtrack premiered on Loudwire, and it’s totally not dildos. It definitely sounds like Dethklok, but there are a few new touches that haven’t been heard before, namely clean vocals and a fifty piece orchestra. You can listen to it here.
The clean vocals are supposedly performed by Pickles, which makes sense considering he was the frontman for Snakes N’ Barrels. As for the orchestral movements, they were composed by Small and Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, Battlestar Galactica). If this is any indication as to how the rest of the Klok Opera will sound, then it looks like the special will be filled with lots of zazz. Metalocalypse: The Doomstar Requiem A Klok Opera will premiere on Adult Swim on October 27th and the soundtrack will be released October 29th.
