Dethklok, the stars of the animated series ‘Metalocalypse’, find their latest release ‘Dethalbum III’ debuting at No. 10 on the Billboard 200 chart with roughly 20,000 units sold. It also hit the No. 1 slot on the Hard Music Albums chart.

This was Dethklok’s highest chart debut to-date, and the band’s real life voice and creator Brendon Small is grateful. “Thanks to the fans for actually buying music in a world where they don’t have to.”

Loudwire’s review of ‘Dethalbum III’ says it “is able to take a super serious (and often gore-slathered) genre like death metal and make it ‘deth metal.’ That is, it fuses skilled playing with a sense of humor, which is often not the case in the genre’s offerings.”

Dethklok will be kicking off a North American headline tour with Machine Head, All That Remains and the Black Dahlia Murder on Tuesday, Oct. 30.

When discussing the upcoming tour, Small said, “Dethklok are excited to be a part of the best tour of 2012. We spared no expense on production for the tour. We are unleashing tons of new animation, new comedy, and new sketches and are very excited to play many new songs and can’t wait for new people to see our show. I’ll be honest, I don’t know when we will be able to pull off anything this massive again, so don’t miss it.”

To celebrate the album and the impending Dethklok tour kickoff, Loudwire, the band and Gibson Guitars are teaming up to give away an Epiphone “1958” Korina Explorer. Enter the contest below.

Season 4 of ‘Metalocalypse’ will also be released on DVD and Blu-ray Oct. 30 as the tour launches. All 12 episodes from the show’s fourth season are included along with more than two hours of bonus material, highlighted by the 90 minute feature film ‘Nathan Reads Shakespeare 4: Comedy of Errors.’
