Product Description

Amazon.ca

The third season of Metalocalypse, the animated comedy-music series about the world's most popular death metal band, proves the old axiom that bigger is better by doubling the running time of each episode while retaining its signature blend of gonzo humor and rock culture parody. Expanding the show's length might have caused Metalocalypse's juggling act, which tackles music biz clichés, gross-out gags, conspiracy plot lines, and absurdist scenarios (often in the same episode), to fall flat, but instead, the third season allows for more involved and outlandish stories, as well as more insight into the characters. Not that Nathan Explosion, Pickles the drummer, William Murderface, and the rest of Dethklok are the deepest of fellows, but the longer running time gives audiences a chance to explore their more sensitive sides, such as guitarist Toki Wartooth's attempt to find a meaningful relationship ("Fertilityklok") or axeman Skwisgaar Swigelf's search for his Swedish roots ("Fatherklok"). Meanwhile, Murderface pursues his own Christmas special ("Dethmas"), Dr. Rockso continues his downward spiral into oblivion ("Dethzazz"), and there's the matter of manager Charles Foster Offdensen, who returns from an apparent death at the end of the second season to put Dethklok into the path of World War III in the season finale, "Doublebookedklok." In short, it's the usual Metalocalypse lunacy, but more of it.

Extras on the two-disc season-three set are unfortunately limited to 50 minutes of deleted scenes that, while fitfully amusing, don't make up for the lack of more substantive material. Easter eggs abound throughout the set, including a clip of the infamous recording of Nathan Explosion reading Shakespeare. --Paul Gaita

3.0 out of 5 stars Never as good as Season 1 Dec 22 2012

After watching season 1, curiosity was the only reason for watching this and it is not as 'metal' as the first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing season; Great quality Aug. 28 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Another hilarious season of Metalocalypse, and in my opinion the best so far. DVD quality was like new, factory sealed and no damages. Delivery was quick and without fuss.

A fair warning however that unlike the first 2 seasons, this one is uncensored, nudity and swearing (The guitar pull over cuss words is out) so just a heads up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good but still fun to watch Nov. 19 2010
By Muretta - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am absolutely addicted to this show, and still re-watch season one and two regularly, so I ordered this as soon as I could.

This season isn't as good as the first two, it's also pretty different, although it's still brilliant at points, especially the Hamburger Time episode. Season three seems to focus a lot more on character development, which I support and very much enjoyed. Each character has their own episode, with their own songs, even Dr.Rockzo. My favourite episode was Rehabklok and made me love Pickles even more.

The season finale was amazing, nice to see some actual plot, although the cliffhanger is going to make waiting for the next season a bitch.

The special features are also really good and fun to watch.

The uncensored swearing takes a while to get used to and in a way, I prefer the guitar riffs but eh, it's not bad, I'll probably get used to it.

One thing, my copy had a rather large rip in it. This could be because I imported it to the UK but I'm quite annoyed at that...

5.0 out of 5 stars hamburger time Nov. 11 2010
By micheal zeeland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Metalocalypse is one of the funniest shows around. A smart and extremely funny satire of the music bussines. This season the episodes are longer (20 min) which makes them more interesting, and consequently even better. Toki, Nathan, Swisgaard and Pickles are great, but the show has only one real star. If there is any justice, William Murderface will go down as one of this centuries' greatest comic creations.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Season Thus Far Jan. 11 2011
By Yukarin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I'd read the reviews that people didn't like this season because the guitar riffs were taken out that were used to censor the f-word. I'd read the reviews where they said it wasn't as good as the other two seasons because it was shallow or offensive or just plain stupid.

Am I one of the few that loves this season the most?

While I miss the guitar riffs that played during each use of profane language, I didn't really care either way that it wasn't included in the new season. It's not essential to the plot or anything. I did notice that certain male body parts weren't censored, which the first time watching the episode I gave an 'OMG!' gasp but it's not anything thats going to ruin the show.

I noticed that this season spent more time with character side stories. The other two seasons focused on Dethklok as a group, but season three explained why Toki likes Dr. Rockso so much, or why Skwissgar whips out his guitar and fast plays when he's uncomfortable, why Pickles drinks so much, etc etc. You really start to understand each of their little idiosyncrasies and love them just a little bit more. I must admit I absolutely hated the Dr. Rockso episodes from seasons 1&2, but I find that I like him now, he seems a wee bit less annoying [or maybe he's still annoying but now he's funnier?].
You also find out the fate of Charles [the manager], and when you find out what happened to him, it really sets the plot for future seasons, and BOY I can't wait!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Still the most metal show in existence Dec 25 2011
By Shane Windham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Having read a good deal of the reviews on Amazon before watching this season, I was fully expecting to be disappointed. But that fear was completely unfounded. You'll notice a number of minor changes this season, but most of them are very much overstated in the majority of the negative reviews I've seen on this page.

There are fewer episodes in this season, but the episodes are also twice as long. The curses are no longer bleeped by that awesome guitar squeeling, but there's also a great deal more cursing in this season; so I imagine that much bleeping would have just become annoying. And it's surprisingly refreshing to not have any edited language this time around. Lastly, while the storylines are as amazingly well-written as ever, the majority of the episodes don't contain new tracks or concerts. You'll notice there's plenty of musical material however, but the focus does seem to be much heavier on the story side of things within season 3.

The core of the show you undoubtedly adored in seasons 1 and 2 is still very much intact. Metalocalypse is still clever, brutal, and hilarious; the way that it's always been. Some reviewers have insisted that the show took a completely different direction; leading me to believe that the band was undergoing changes to its lineup or that Ofdensen was really gone for good, in an attempt to keep the scripts fresh. But again, there's nothing like that here. This is still Metalocalypse.

The only real reason I'm giving this season a 4 instead of a 5 is because of the fact that so many of the more comedy-laden tracks were incorporated here, while the metal tracks weren't given equal showcasing. Still, aside from that, season 3 was fantastic! Just like with the first two seasons, once I turned the first episode on, I didn't sleep until I'd finished them all. Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars The least brutal, most annoying and shallow season so far! :-( Jan. 8 2011
By John L. Rice - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was really disappointed with this season. Not that I crave images of brutal violence and sometimes I was a little shocked but, I've come to expect it with this show. And they've seemed to have replaced the brutality scenes with more of Murder Face, Toki and Dr. Rockso screeching and whining! uhg, please give that crap a rest. Even Pickles was more whimpy and whiney this season. And, what happened to the conspiracy sub plot with the government/military/powerful mysterious dude? That was awesome and I hoped it would develop into something more intense and complex but instead it just fizzled. And there didn't seem to be much in the way of concerts, or at least big ones or mentions that they are the most powerful/richest organizations on the planet. It's as if Dethklok has gone the way of real world mega bands and stopped producing exciting original material and touring the biggest areanas and are just rehashing old material in local clubs on weeknights.

For reference two of my favorite episodes are the Season 1 finale and the Season 2 opener. Seems like they peaked at the end of season 1 and the beginning of season 2. Here's hoping they'll turn things around for season 4!!!!
