PiercingMetal Goes To New York Comic Con 2011: Day 1; Part 2

Hey there, and welcome back. We are so glad that you could join us once again and are willing to brave the myriad amount of images and views from the NY Comic Con 2011. As I stated in the opening chapter of this group of narratives, there was a lot to see over the course of four days and now without any further adieu let us continue along with the masked merriment. First up we see Mr. Jason Edmiston. He was at a table in Artist Alley. I will admit to you readers early on that I didn’t focus as much on the Artist Alley section for this Comic Con this time around. This year I wanted to give heavy attention to as many of the wonderful Cosplayers that I could since they work so hard at bringing this event to colorful life.

“Metalocalypse: Season One” starring Dethklok

Artist: Metalocalypse
Title: “Metalocalypse: Season One”
Label: Turner Home Entertainment
Release Date: 10/3/2007
Genre: Death Metal
Rating: 5/5

Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim series “Metalocalypse” follows the misadventures of the Death Metal band Dethklok who are explained to be the absolute biggest band in history – ever. The stories are loaded with Extreme Metal music and even more extreme levels of violence which is often directed at their often suicidal fan base. For example, the bands concert intro finds their stage falling from the sky, missing its mark and instead landing on top of thousands of the assembled fans. The ones who cleared this space celebrate and rock among the strewn bodies of the others. The audience doesn’t care and all are shown signing waivers as they enter the shows which eliminate liability to the band for any action that they take. The band is led by singer Nathan Explosion who talks in the same gravelly Death Metal growl that he sings in and he seems Hell bent on having everything be as Metal as it can be. The perfectionist at all times with their music we find him deleting every recording because it wasn’t heavy enough. He then decides that the band will record again inside a nuclear submarine in the deepest part of the ocean. The hilarious antics of the group are observed by a secret government group that seeks to thwart the bands growth and activities. From this cabal we learn that the band is among the highest earning economies in the world and every time they endorse a product or create one it drives the competitors out of business. They create coffee jingles and melt their fans with the stuff during a show – they create cell phones, or “Deth-Phones” which have night minutes that begin at 11pm. When Explosion learns this he states that it is totally Metal. The band leaves nothing less than chaos in their wake and while performing in Finland, their song which is based on some ancient writings is actually a summoning chant that awakens a Lake Troll who wreaks havoc and destruction everywhere. The band only decides to stop the troll when Explosion realizes that his DSL connection had been compromised by the demon. They don’t always portray the group as being all that savvy and one of the hilarious exchanges comes from the scene of a band party where guitarist Swissgar tells Toki that the event is a real sausage fest. Toki replies that he really loves the sausage fest and from there Swissgar tries to explain that there is a difference which he just fails to comprehend. We also periodically find the band in discussions with their legal counsel as he informs them about what their actions had either caused or cost the band. He explains that they were often drunk while making these decisions and that they swore to kill him had he not let them do what they wanted. These highlights are only a brief example of the outrageous content that you will find when you watch this uncensored DVD collection.
