Metal guru, creator of Adult Swim's animated shows Metalocalypse
and Home Movies
, and founder of virtual death metal band Dethklok has a lot to talk about. Not only is a new season of Metalocalypse
just underway (check your local listings) but the Berklee grad has just finished his solo album Galaktikon.
Brendon was kind enough to invite Gibson.com
into his Silverlake, California, studio to discuss his music and TV career, working with Metallica, technology, his signature Gibson Thunderhorse Explorer
and the sheer joy of playing music. He also showcases for the first time ever his new Snow Falcon
prototype that’s in the Gibson pipeline. And, if that wasn’t enough, he even teaches some metal riffology in a couple of exclusive guitar lessons.
