The television program centers around the larger than life death metal band Dethklok , and often portrays dark and macabre content, including such subjects as violence, death, and the drawbacks of fame, with extremely hyperbolic black humor; which accounts for the cartoon's consistent TV-MA rating. The show can be seen as both a parody and celebration of heavy metal culture. The animation is often carefully synced to the music, with the chord positions and fingering of the guitar parts shown in some detail. One of the trademarks of the show is having the usual "bleeps" for extreme profanity replaced by pinch harmonics.

Metalocalypse is an American adult animated television series , created by Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha , which premiered on August 6, , and concluded with a one-hour special, Metalocalypse: The Doomstar Requiem , on October 27, on Adult Swim. The television program centers on the larger-than-life melodic death metal band Dethklok , and often portrays dark and macabre content, including such subjects as violence, death, and the drawbacks of fame, with hyperbolic black comedy. The show was widely heralded as both a parody and a pastiche of heavy metal culture. The animation was often carefully synced to the music with the chord positions and fingering of the guitar parts shown in some detail. In the series, Dethklok is a death metal band that enjoys a popularity level unheard of in reality, ranking as the seventh-largest economy on Earth by the end of the second season. Series creator Small described them as "like the Beatles , just a thousand times more dangerous and a billion times more stupid". Their manager is Charles Foster Offdensen. If Dethklok endorses a product or service, competitors are quickly driven out of business. Organizations worldwide, ranging from governments to businesses, go out of their way to avoid hindering Dethklok, to the point that the band is allowed to maintain its own police force and can get away with any crime imaginable with virtually no repercussions, although the band is often too ignorant to even notice that they are committing illegal acts. The members of Dethklok tend to cause disaster wherever they travel, and anything remotely associated with them likewise attracts chaos.
