Dethklok has a huge fight on stage, which prompts the record label to hire a performance coach to keep the band together. The band falls in love with therapy for all the wrong reasons.
With their new album finally shipping, Dethklok plans their post-release traditions of vacationing, goofing off, palling around, and prank calls. Nathan, however, can't shake the feeling that something is wrong with the record... After being humiliated by Murderface's prank calls, Skwisgaar and Toki swear revenge.
Dethklok heads to Tomahawk, Wisconsin to open a Dethfair in hopes that it will stimulate the economy they destroyed. Pickles uses this time at home to reconnect with his disapproving mother who tells him that she won't respect him until he gets a real job. Pickles decides to hang up his drumsticks and goes into an even more brutal profession: he becomes a realtor.
Tired of taking verbal abuse from his bandmate, Toki writes a tell-all book called Skwisgaar Is Ams Dick and takes over as Dethklok's lead guitarist. But can Toki handle the spotlight? Meanwhile, Nathan buys a new favorite toy for the band: a defibrillator.
After spending all their time with sluts and squandering the budget on their new record, Dethklok is shocked to find they've been assigned a new producer: A WOMAN. She sends them on a pre-writing vacation that turns out to be a brutal trip to a third world country where they're mistaken as women and captured as sex slaves.
Since Dethklok's withdrawal from the public following the purported Dethwater Live "fan attack", the world economy teeters on the brink of disaster. Dethklok is finally lured back into the outside world with their protective "pelvic-thrust mace belts" to be a part of the world's largest public execution of criminals in recorded history.
Toki Wartooth is fed up playing in the shadow of Skwisgaar's lead guitar. Under the tutelage of a crusty old guitar master, Toki learns that the heart, too, has strings.
The wounded, the scared, and the disfigured unite. Meanwhile, an oblivious Dethklok spends their studio time recording onto the purest of all analog formats: water.
Fearing for their safety after a public gun mishap/bloodbath, the CFO hires look-a-likes of Dethklok to make public appearances while the band prepares for a Duncan Hills Coffee promotional event.
In this first season finale, the Metalocalypse creeps closer to fulfillment when Dethklok executes their most brutal performance to date, and the Tribunal finally makes their move.
