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. [7] The album was later released on LP to the United States and Canada. [8]

Background

The deluxe edition includes a bonus DVD with 52 minutes of never-before-released music videos featured in the 2008 Dethklok tour. [9]

Two bonus tracks were originally promised for the deluxe edition of the album. Brendon Small never had recorded or planned to include the bonus tracks. The announcement was a marketing error. [10]

"Murmaider II: The Water God" is the only song off the album not to have appeared in an episode of Metalocalypse thus far.[citation needed]

"Laser Cannon Deth Sentence" was featured as a downloadable track for Guitar Hero 5.[11]

Reception

The album peaked at number 15 on the Billboard 200 chart and sold 45,000 copies in its first week of release.[12]
