Grind editor Deirdre Jones recently sat down with metal renaissance man Brendon Small, who spilled about Dethklok's latest, Dethalbum II, Metalocalypse season 3, and hosting this weekend's Guitar Player Guitar Superstar competition....
SEPTEMBER IS GOING TO BE A BIG MONTH FOR BRENDON SMALL, the co-creator and musical force behind the smash hit show Metalocalypse. Not only is the show entering its third season on the Cartoon Network, but the follow up to 's successful first musical release, Dethalbum II, will drop on September 29th. Brendon will also once again be serving as host of the annual Guitar Player Guitar Superstar event happening in Livermore, California, September 11-13. “I’ve had the supreme luxury of participating in the Guitar Superstar event for the last two years and during that time, it has seriously been the biggest highlight. Next to my record setting television ratings and mammoth record sales with Metalocalypse and Dethklok, of course.”
Add this to an upcoming tour starting October 3rd with metal titans Mastodon, and you get the picture: Brendon has hit the big time. “But in all seriousness, the thing that keeps me going day to day is guitar. I love it more than my dog, or my family, or God,” he says, “and to be included in an event like this with Guitar Player and these amazing musicians is like a dream come true.” When asked if he really loved guitar more than his dog, Brendon replied “Dude, don’t make me seriously answer that question.”
