Dethalbum II is the second full length album by virtual band Dethklok, from the animated series Metalocalypse. The CD and deluxe CD/DVD were released on September 29, 2009.[2] The album was later released on LP to the United States and Canada.[3]

Background

The album was recorded at Bombshelter Studios and "The Danger Zone" in Los Angeles. The deluxe edition includes a bonus DVD with 52 minutes of never-before-released music videos featured in the 2008 Dethklok tour.[4] Two bonus tracks were originally promised for the deluxe edition of the album; however, Brendon Small had never recorded or planned to include bonus tracks. The announcement was a marketing error.[5] A guitar transcription book of this album was released through Alfred Music Publishing.[6] Six tracks from this album are included in the Dethklok bass tab anthology.[7]

Other media appearances

"Laser Cannon Deth Sentence" is featured as a downloadable track for Guitar Hero 5.[8] "Bloodlines" is featured as a playable track in Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock.[9]
