In a recent scientific study 99.98% of people listening to Dethalbum II die… instantly… in a bloody explosion. Survival rate after initial exposure is nominal as long as you head bang constantly.
As for the album:
- Nathan Explosion graces us with some high pitched growls. Probably the most common cause of instant deth associated with listening to the album.
- Skwisgaar makes “demonically fast” seem like “unicornally slow” with his supreme command of a guitar. My fingers bleed just listening to the album.
-Not sure if Toki even plays on this album.
-Murderface made all sandwiches that were consumed during the making of this album and it really shows. He makes a brutal sandwich.
-Pickles never disappoints. What he lacks in hair he makes up in 16th note double bass pedal beats.
As for the bonus DVD:
Sure we don’t get bonus songs but we must be thankful for what Dethklok did give us. A whole set of brutal music videos. These contain original animations that were never shown on Metalocalypse. Murmaider, Hatredcopter and Thunderhorse are extremely brutal. The Murmaider music video is the single most brutal and amazing video my eyes have ever seen.
As for the songs:
-Bloodlines: Gets you really hooked into the album. If you don’t feel like you’ve been punched in the stomach after listening to this song you must be some kind of God.
-The Gears: Just when you thought you could get a break from the metal think again. By now your neck should start getting sore.
-Burn The Earth: The solo in this song demands air guitaring. Only your worthless hands will be able to only match 2% of the notes.
-Laser Cannon Deth Sentence: The main riff of this song is brutal.
-Black Fire Upon Us: The slowest song on the album. This will probably be your local high school’s slow dance song for all of the school dances.
-Dethsupport: most people must be put on life support at this point in the album… therefore the appropriate song title.
-The Cyborg Slayers: My only complaint about this song is that my ears are not efficient enough to hear all of the notes during the solo. Hopefully my cyborg masters will give me a cybernetic implant…
-I Tamper With The Evidence At The Murder Site Of Odin: Valhalla recently gained the rights to use this song for their alarm clocks to get everyone in a killing mood first thing in the morning.
-Murmaider II: The Water God: Sequel? Check. Brutal? Check. Shredding? Check. Metal? Check. Mermaid? Check. Murder? Check.
-Comet Song: What can be more brutal than a fiery deth from above.
-Symmetry: This song carries us to the end of the album with a brutal riff… making us feel like we’ve been chopped into two perfectly symmetrical pieces.
-Volcano: If you’ve made this far into the album you’re doing pretty good. Don’t let your guard down because you could very well die before listening to the entire album. Brutal end to a brutal album.
If you’ve made it through a listen, repeat over and over into oblivion.
