Just like when I reviewed the first Dethalbum, I won’t be reviewing this one like I usually do for more than obvious reasons. If you’re one of those crazy metalheads who freaks out because they feel Metalocalypse and Dethklok are destroying metal then stop reading now, I have no sympathy for you, and quite honestly it’s people like you that are destroying our beloved music by crapping on anything that’s even slightly new or doesn’t take itself so seriously that it’s sad, by doing this you are stagnating the genre and halting growth. Now that my rant is done it’s move on to the actual product being reviewed. Musically this is much more technical and legitimate than the first. Having said that is isn’t anywhere near as catchy or funny as the original Dethalbum. Also the vocals are a little higher in some places, and call me a hypocrite if you will, but this ruins it a little for me because Nathan Explosion is supposed to always be low pitched and guttural. Overall it’s a solid comedy death metal release that I found very enjoyable but it didn’t quite catch the magic that the first one did. Highlights include “Bloodlines” “The Gears”, and “Laser Cannon Deth Sentence”.
The DVD included in the deluxe edition is surprisingly worth it. It has specially made parts along with every music video created for each song. This makes it great for fans. I will admit that it was a tad misleading though, when I ordered it I was under the impression that I was getting 52 minutes of live footage. Oh well, it was a bit disappointing but I still enjoyed the DVD a great deal.
