Code Orange has shared a new music video for their song “Autumn And Carbine” from their acclaimed 2020 album Underneath (Roadrunner). The clip made it’s world premiere during Adult Swim’s Toonami broadcast this past Saturday, January 23rd. The animated video, which was directed / animated by the band’s own Eric ‘Shade’ Balderose and Jami Morgan (NOWHERE2RUN Productions), follows Code Orange into a dystopian wasteland as they confront the thieving overlords of a ruined future society. The band also utilized DIY motion capture techniques to animate the various performance scenes in the video which is streaming now on their official YouTube channel. Furthermore, Code Orange have launched a limited edition “Autumn and Carbine” shirt in their webstore, featuring 3D incarnates of each member as seen in the animated video. Watch it now!
We have been blessed with a lot of great Mastodon news of late, from celebrating their 20th anniversary, their new song on the Bill And Ted Face The Music soundtrack – “Rufus Lives”, to the band hitting the studio to work on full-length number eight. So 2020 seems like a good time for a good old odds and sods release, the cleverly titled Medium Rarities (Reprise).
Adult Swim has answered the call of humanity in our hour of need (and boredom). The network has returned all episodes of Metalocalypse free on their app and website! The show featuring the hilarious death metal band Dethklok! The show ran from August 2006 to October 2013 and was beloved in the metal community, even bringing non-fans into the genre. Fans keep hoping that the show will return someday, although the creators, Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha, have been doubtful. The actual band Deathklock performed last fall at the Adult Swim Festival, and you can read our review here.Continue reading

For just one weekend the Banc of California Stadium was transformed into a carnivalesque outdoor funhouse for the Adult Swim Festival. The stadium was alive with colorful distorted animations reminiscent of children’s cartoons and claymation scenes warped and hyperbolized beyond the mind’s comprehension, while a giant Meatwad dome sat across an even larger inflatable slide shaped like Morty’s head vomiting a rainbow.
Dethklok reunited and performed live for the first time in five years last night as the headline act of Adult Swim Festival at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, California! Ghost Cult was on hand for the festival and review will be up on the site next week. The band performed a 19-song set-list of hits and deep cuts, as well as two new premieres. Dethklok, which emerged from the metal fan favorite and pop culture hit Metalocalypse, has not performed live since their 2012 tour to promote Dethalbum III, although they released The Doomstar Requiem soundtrack in 2013, but never toured behind it. That episode concluded the show, on October 27th 2013. Series co-founder and band leader Brendon Small has been working on other series and his other band, Brendan Small’s Galaktikon, which released a new album in 2017, Galaktikon II: Become The Storm. Joining Small (vocals/guitar) in the band last night was Gene Hoglan on drums, Nili Brosh on second guitar and Pete Griffin on bass. Watch fan-filmed footage of their set right now! Continue reading
