Looks like Dethklok mastermind Brendon Small, drummer Gene Hoglan, and bassist Bryan Beller have all been in the studio together recently. Considering Small revealed back in August that he was writing the final Metalocalypse movie, it makes sense that Dethklok would be at least starting to demo some of the movie’s material. Though all Hoglan captioned the photo with was “Great pic.”
In the interview from August, Small said the new movie will answer all the questions left from the 2013 movie The Doomstar Requiem.
“I can tell you… what has already been released, which is that we are making a feature Metalocalypse movie, and that’s what we’re in production on right now. So we’re right in the middle of making the movie, so all the questions that were still lingering after The Doomstar Requiem — a one-hour long rock opera special — are being answered… I don’t wanna say too much about it, but it’s a very big project. We’re all excited to be knee deep in it right now.”
When asked for a release date, Small simply replied that it’ll be up to Adult Swim to decide. “I just know that I’ve still got work to do,” he added. All we know so far is from the synopsis provided by Adult Swim in 2021, which read:
“The power-hungry TRIBUNAL unveils their secret and deadly ‘Falconback Project’ as the world grows in embattled chaos and the menacing Doomstar breaches the Earth’s atmosphere while the mysterious and twisted dissent of a band member threatens the future of Dethklok. Picking up directly after the heroic rescue of Toki Wartooth: Can Dethklok choose between their egos and the greater good of the world to embark on a gauntlet of dangers that will try their very souls and finally write the song that will be their salvation?”
