Brendan Small's Galaktikon



Still no word on a release date but i'm assuming it should come out relatively soon if we already have the cover art. I'm not sure how much everybody else cares but I've been waiting for this album for 2 years now. I really enjoy Dethklok's music and I think Brendan has it in him to make a really great non-Dethklok album. Small had this to say about what we can expect the album to sound like.

"Yeah. I had all these songs where there were elements of QUEEN, but also elements of FOO FIGHTERS and SMASHING PUMPKINS, with some DIO elements as well. My kind of rule for the record was, it's going to be whatever it ends up being, and I'm going to tell a story through the whole thing. Once I started putting the pieces together, I found the story, and I realized that, OK, this is a high-stakes, intergalactic, extreme rock album. And if I do this right, it's going to be like an audio comic book. It's turned out to be something that I'm really happy to have done because I flexed a different muscles while making it but if you're one of the kids who liked DETHKLOK, you're going to be able to tell that it's the same dude playing guitar, and Gene Hoglan on drums and Bryan Beller on bass. DETHKLOK has to be a certain kind of sound, but this other thing is whatever it needs to be. I got to pull out a vocoder and do ELO-style things here and there, and there's an instrumental on there that's a total tribute to Vai and Satriani and Yngwie and Steve Morse."

I actually hadn't heard a word about this until now. Cheers for posting it. I love Small's work with Dethklok, and that cover art is pretty awesome. Should be an interesting album.

He first announced he was working on this shortly after the Dethalbum 2 came out and the original time frame for it's release was sometime in late 2010 but no real news about it came out until today.

New song 'On My Way'

I like it. Proggy Dethklok with melodic vocals.
