I caught word of Dethklok‘s Brendan Small, the man behind the show and the music, working on new material that wasn’t Dethklok-fashion a while back and from just hearing about it I was definitely interested. I mean, if this new project sounds anything like Dethklok, I was going to love it. Well, Galaktikon is a bit different from Dethklok but not as much as you would suspect. Metal Injection says “it’s not necessarily metal, more hard rock, but still a fun catchy tune.” but I don’t really agree with this. Galaktikon is definitely metal. If you can call Nevermore metal, then you can call this metal.
It’s heavy and fast and aggressive. Actually, the music reminds me so much of Dethklok that I suspect this is what said band would sound like if they, for some reason, kicked Nathan Explosion out. So, you’ve got the sick riffs and nice, clean vocals; yeah, you’ve got me. I love this. Check out the song “On My Way” below. Shit rips. Brendan Small’s Galaktikon‘s debut is due out (I think) sometime in April.
