Welcome to Episode Seven of the Loudwire Podcast! We’ve got a twofer for you this time, with special guests Brendon Small and Devin Townsend.

We start off with Metalocalypse creator and Dethklok supergenius Brendon Small on this edition of the podcast. Metalocalypse fans have been begging for Dethklok’s final chapter ever since The Doomstar Requiem hit in 2013. In Small’s one and only interview about the subject, the cartoon mastermind described in great detail why Adult Swim refuses to produce the last piece of Metalocalypse.

Small believes the massive Metalocalypse Now campaign petitioning for Dethklok’s finale actually annoyed Adult Swim so greatly that the channel just wants nothing to do with the show any longer. This is a conversation you won’t want to miss. Plus, in this episode’s ‘Rocker vs. Writer’ segment, we discuss which real-life metal band would make the greatest basis for a cartoon.

For Devin Townsend’s podcast interview, we spoke with the creative enigma about his new opus, Transcendence. Touching on the album’s grand themes and tremendous production quality, the conversation with Dev turned into more of a philosophical discussion exploring the nature of life. This is a must-listen for fans aiming to tap into Devy’s fascinating mind.
