Dethklok?s 'Dethalbum III' Cracks U.S. Top 10

Metal superstars, Dethklok, rocketed into the charts this week, cracking the Top 10 mark on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart following the release of the latest installment to their heavy hitting metal arsenal, Metalocalypse: Dethklok Dethalbum III! Dethklok, the animated rockstars of Adult Swim’s hit animated series, “Metalocalypse”, reached a major achievement with the release of Metalocalypse: Dethklok Dethalbum III, by reaching their highest debut charting position since the inception of the show.

Metalocalypse: Dethklok Dethalbum III is available now in a variety of formats including a standard CD, clean CD and Deluxe Edition CD/DVD combo, which includes a 32-minute behind-the-scenes documentary of the making of Dethalbum III, as well as music videos, and more. A vinyl edition of the album with special etching will also be released on November 6, 2012.

Dethklok recently announced a North American headline tour with support from All That Remains, Machine Head, and special guest The Black Dahlia Murder. The tour, featuring the band from the Metalocalypse animated series, will make more than 30 stops throughout the United States and Canada. Throughout this massive headlining tour, Pearl artist and drumming legend, Gene Hoglan, will release an all-out metal-drumming assault throughout each Dethklok track, brilliantly displaying his impeccable footwork, blistering speed, and tastefully placed fills and rolls. Gene will rely on the innovative design of Pearl’s Reference Series line of drums, to achieve the perfect balance and tone night after night, with his huge double-bass drum kit serving as the perfect centerpiece to Dethklok’s stage. Gene’s specs are as follow.
