METALOCALYPSE creator Brendan Small says we may not have seen the last of DETHKLOK after all
Excitingly, after a decade-long anticipation, the new METALOCALYPSE film, “Metalocalypse: Army Of The Doomstar,” has been released. However, accompanying this long-awaited release is the bittersweet realization that this movie marks the concluding chapter of the METALOCALYPSE series. Well…maybe.
According to METALOCALYPSE mastermind Brendon Small in an interview with Heavy Consequence, there’s one song on “Dethalbum IV” that could evolve into the next storyline for the band. Y’know, as long as there’s funding from someone to pay for another series or movie.
“It’s a more bold move to end your story, and so we’re gonna go ‘okay. This is it,'” said Small. “But if there were… look, there’s one idea I have – and this is where I do get coy – I have one idea and I don’t know if it’ll ever come to fruition at all, but there’s a song that embodies what I think the next version would be.
“I don’t know that we’ll ever get there because I mean again, we need somebody else to pay for it. But there’s one song on the record that I think kind of embodies what the future would be. I don’t know if it would be as mystical or as crazy, but it would be funny.”
So don’t hold your breath for a sequel to “Metalocalypse: Army Of The Doomstar” anytime soon, but know that the door ain’t completely closed on your favorite animated metal band just yet.
