Order Revolver's new Dethklok collector's issue, limited-edition vinyl variants of all their albums, and official band shirts in exclusive colorways at our shop.

Scott Ian and Dethklok go way back. The Anthrax guitarist first appeared in Metalocalypse in 2009's Season 3, Episodes 1 and 2: "Renovationklok" and "Tributeklok" as "sneaky trunk guy" and then "humiliated participant" — the former a crazed fan that infiltrated Mordhaus (resulting in a hilarious interaction with 'Klok frontman Nathan Explosion).

And lucky for us (and him), Ian makes return appearance in the new Metalocalypse movie, Army of the Doomstar, playing the voice of an Elite Tribunal Soldier — and loving every minute of it.

In our new Dethklok collector's issue, Ian spoke to Revolver about his die-hard love of the Klok. While he wasn't able managed to narrow down his top Dethklok song, he did reveal his favorite creation out of every album in the broader Metalocalypse universe.

"It's really hard for me to pick a favorite Dethklok song — we're talking about the greatest band in the history of history here," Ian tells Revolver. "The band that wrote such gems as 'Bloodrocuted,' 'Hatredcopter' and 'I Ejaculate Fire.' How does one choose?

"My favorite masterpiece from the Dethverse is… The Doomstar Requiem. Doomstar is the culmination of years of inventive storytelling coupled with musical genius. This Klok Opera is nothing short of brilliant, the magnum opus of this monumental saga.

"It takes you on a musically magnificent ride through the darkest depths of misery to the tops of the most majestic metal peaks… and it leaves you wanting more."

Revolver is celebrating all of the above with a deluxe collector's issue dedicated to the Metalocalypse stars. The 100-page magazine features new in-depth interviews with series co-creator and musical mastermind Brendon Small, along with key collaborators, telling the full behind-the-scenes story of the animated band. It also features commentary from famous fans including King Diamond, Anthrax's Scott Ian and Cannibal Corpse's George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher. The issue comes in five collectible alternate covers, one of which was illustrated by artist Songgu Kwon just for this project.

In addition, we've got limited-edition vinyl variants and CDs of all four of Dethklok's albums, including the new Dethalbum IV, plus official band T-shirts in exclusive colorways.
