    This episode is so hilarious! Especially the part when Skwisgaar is showing Dethklok his guitars, and points out the guitar made from the wood of Christ\'s cross. Also when Dethklok is talking to Skwisgaar about zazz. This is such a funny episode as are the other ones, and I watch this show because of the funniness and music. I love Skwisgaar\'s guitar solo, \"Crush My Battle Opponent\'s B*lls\". I also laughed out loud when Skwisgaar was fighting with a man about flying in on a dragon. The man tried to convince him that there were no dragons on Earth. So Skwisgaar fired him.moreless

    This was such a great episode, maybe not as good as Fatklok or Snakes N\' Barrels, but it was still a really good one. It was sad to see Toki become a diabetic who suffers from on and off diabetic comas, and Skwisgaar is alergic to cilantro! Meanwhile Nathan spends the entire episode drinking barbaque sauce, classical.



    It was high quality stuff, and the new song \"Crush My Battle Opponent\'s Balls\" is amazing, and completly brutal.



    Also I\'d like to note that I don\'t think Skwisgaars outfit is a Behemoth reference as mentioned in the Allusions, I think it is more likly a reference to Dani Filth\'s outfit and makeup in Cradle of Filths video for Nymphetamine, except for the blonde hair he looks very similar.



    Worth the watch, hit it up on the fix when you get a few minutes.moreless

    • Murderface: We've been talking Skwisgaar and, we think this whole production could be a lot more... zippy. It just, it needs zazz! Am I--I mean I'm right to say that right?
      Nathan: No, you're right to say that. It's just, you know, you could stand to zazz it a up a little bit more.
      Pickles: No offense Skwisgaar but I gotta say this whole thing, it uh, it lacks zazz.
      Murderface: You could just put it on the zazz train to zazz-ville.
      Toki: Yeah because no offense there's absolutely no zazz to be found, not here anyway, not in these parts.
      Nathan: What we're trying to say is that there's two kinds of shows out there, those with and those without--

      Nathan: Zazz.
      Pickles: Zazz.
      Skwisgaar: Please stop saying zazz.
      Pickles: Why don't you let us help you out?

    • Toki: Ah, cool, you gots a new shipment of custom guitar!
      Skwisgaar: Yeah, this is uh, some designs I'm messing around with, uh, this one is, um, Swiss Army-tar. It's a good guitar for a camping trip, It's got toothpick.

  • NOTES (3)

    • This episode marks the first of four episodes which will feature guest voice contributions by King Diamond. King Diamond is a heavy metal legend known for his wide vocal range (often involving high-octave melodic singing) and his Satanic black metal inspired face makeup and shock rock image. As the frontman for both Mercyful Fate and the band King Diamond, his music has a wide audience and appeals to both bands and fans of all metal sub-genres.

    • The "Skwisgaar Skwigelf Advanced Fast Hand Finger Wizard Master Class" is a reference to a short film by Brendon Small entitled "The Thor Von Clemson Advanced Fast Hand Finger Wizard Master Class", which can be found as an extra feature on the Home Movies Season One DVD boxset.

    • This episode aired with a TV-MA-V rating.

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Esteban

      Sergio Panperio is a parody of the guitarist Esteban. Easily identifiable by his bolero hat and sunglasses, Esteban has gained commercial success by selling his music CD's and guitars through a series of infomericals aired on QVC and the Home Shopping Network.

    • Yngwie J. Malmsteen

      The opening scene, where Skwisgaar is shooting down a dragon with flames from his guitar, may be a reference to the cover of guitar legend Yngwie J. Malmsteen's Trilogy album, which depicts him on the cover battling a dragon in this manner.

    • Behemoth

      Skwisgaar's outfit has a striking similarity to the one worn by Nergal, the lead singer for the Polish blackened death metal band Behemoth.

    • Mayhem

      Skwisgaar's corpse paint is done in the same style as the face paint worn by Maniac, the former singer for legendary Norwegian black metal band Mayhem.
