Galaktikon, the band headed up by Metalocalypse & Dethklok creator Brendan Small, will releasing its new album II: Become The Storm on August 25. The album will see the return of ex-Dethklok members bassist Bryan Beller (Steve Vai, ex-James LaBrie) and drummer Gene Hoglan (Testament, ex-Death, ex-Strapping Young Lad), and will continue along the storyline originally set by Galaktikon's 2012 debut.
Though you'll have to figure out all the story stuff yourself, says Small in an interview with Alt Press.
"I think one of the coolest things about music is not knowing [the whole story] and trying to figure it out for yourself… there are no lyrics [printed in the album]. If you can figure them out, I want to hear what your take is. You don't have to give everything away, and you can maybe even hopefully build a little bit of intrigue."
You can now check out the brand new single "My Name Is Murder" below, as well as a preview of the song 'To Kill A God."Oh, and if you pre-order digitally, you'll get another new song called "Nightmare." Though you can also pre-order physically and not get that song… it's up to you.
