Darksider 2's Death and Dethklok to appear together in animated short

Adult Swim will treat viewers of this Friday's Metalocalypse marathon not only to the adventures of half-Norwegian metal band Dethklok but also to a new animated short featuring the band's meeting with Death, star of THQ's Darksiders 2.

Adult Swim will treat viewers of this Friday's Metalocalypse marathon not only to the adventures of half-Norwegian metal band Dethklok but also to a new animated short featuring the band's meeting with Death, star of THQ's Darksiders 2.

The two-minute spot (created by Metalocalypse production house Titmouse Inc.) will air on Cartoon Network at some point between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m. this Friday. If you're not metal enough to stay up that late, it will presumably on YouTube literally minutes after it airs.

It's not the first time Dethklok and gaming have crossed paths: In 2009 it was to star in a downloadable action game published by Konami. Though the project was scrapped, you can see some purported footage of the game here.
