Now this is killer. In April, Brendon Small – Metalocalypse co-creator, mastermind of one of the coolest signature models Gibson ever produced and creator of the brilliant Home Movies will present to you GALAKTIKON, an incredible, melodic, heavy, colourful, frankly kickass album. I’ve been lucky enough to hear it and to interview Brendon (look for it closer to the album’s release date) and it’s something really special. The following is a press release about a track exclusively made available to CraveOnline. Check it out!
‘Metalocalypse’ Co-Creator BRENDON SMALL and CraveOnline.com Unveil New ‘BRENDON SMALL’s GALAKTIKON’ Track Today
New Album Coming April 2012!
CraveOnline.com and BRENDON SMALL are thrilled to finally unleash a brand new track from the METALOCALYPSE co-creator’s new side project,BRENDON SMALL’s GALAKTIKON. The new track, ‘On My Way’, is the closing track on the upcoming concept album. BRENDON SMALL’s GALAKTIKON hits stores in late April 2012.
“I’m thrilled to finally give people a taste of what I’ve been blabbing about doing for months,” states Brendon. “’On My Way’ is the last track on the record, where our hero confronts the villain and saves the girl, while complaining the whole time! Enjoy, and stay tuned for more tracks emerging soon.”
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of talking to one Mr. Brendon Small of Dethklok about his awesome new Gibson ‘Thunderhorse’ Dethklok Explorer. Now, everyone knows that Brendon’s Adult Swim showMetalocalypse is utterly awesome, but I urge you to check out his previous show Home Movies
too if you haven’t. I swear a real-life Coach McGurk – complete with whistle – goes to the same coffee shop as me.
Here’s the intro to the interview. You can read the rest over at Gibson.com.
Metalocalypse mastermind Brendon Small is many things: comedian, voice actor, writer, filmmaker; but one of his biggest passions is the guitar. An extremely capable player who graduated from the Berklee College of Music in 1997, Small strives to be as authentic as possible when including “guitar stuff” inMetalocalypse. When a member of fictional death metal band Dethklok shreds onscreen, the fretting hand animation is uncannily lifelike. All the guitar gear featured on the show looks like the real-world item it represents, down to the officially sanctioned logos. And wicked pinch harmonics take the place of bleeps when somebody onscreen drops the F-bomb.
