Though legalities with Adult Swim appear to have ended Dethklok and ‘Metalocalypse, there may still more Dethklok in the future. To that end, drummer Gene Hoglan has revealed that he and Dethklok/’Metalocalypse‘ mastermind Brendon Small have been working on what is essentially a new Dethklok album under the name of Galakticon 2. Hoglan told Metal Hammer:

Brendon is the guy to speak officially about the future of Dethklok per se, but one thing that I do know is I was down in LA doing a few days with Brendon on a new project that happens to be called Galakticon 2.

All I know is this Galakticon 2 album sure sounds a whole lot like Dethklok and sure has the approach of Dethklok.. .but it’s called Galakticon 2. That’s the name of the band because we can’t use Dethklok any more.

This new record we recorded is fucking amazing, it’s killer, and I’m stoked. It sure is a killer record we did, chock full of double bass, killer riffs, and all sorts of cool stuff, and I can’t wait to hear it when it’s done.”

He added:

“I’m always happy touring with Brendon, he’s my dude, so anytime he says jump, I will absolutely jump. We have a really good rapport and stuff. So I’m always down for doing any kind of Dethklok kind of thing. However, I’m in the same boat as anybody who might wonder about it, ‘Well if it’s not Dethklok, then what will happen? Will you still have videos and animation and stuff?’

I’m not sure if it’s part of his budget for this or not. But one thing I do know is that we’ve recorded an amazing new record, and it just happens to be called Galakticon 2. But it sure doesn’t sound like Galakticon 2 – it sure sounds like this other band we used to play for. Exactly like this other band!

It’s not a Dethklok record, but it’s a fucking Dethklok record! It sounds exactly like Dethklok, the lyrics are fully Dethklok.”

Small himself has since commented via Twitter:
