Brendon Small (Dethklok/Metalocalypse) Discusses New Galaktikon Project

Brendon Small of Dethklok/”Metalocalypse” fame has spoken with Noisecreep about his upcoming Galaktikon project. An excerpt from that can be found below:

“Why Galaktikon instead of another Dethklok album?

I am waiting to do that. It’s not in place of it. It’s something I did on the side. I want to make sure you know it’s not instead of Dethklok. This exists because of Dethklok. I wanted something more melodic. I love melody, like ELO and Queen.

Metal musicians out there like David Bowie. Death metal has a place, but so does Steely Dan. I am a music nerd. I had rented a studio and got Gene to give me some of his time, but because they were slow with the contracts, I thought, “I’ve got these guys, they’re not getting paid, we need to do something with this window of time. We can’t sit still.”

The groups debut offering “Brendon Small’s Galaktikon: A High Stakes Intergalactic Extreme Rock Album” is expected to surface in April.
