Last week, Brendon Small - the mastermind behind massive metal band DETHKLOK and albums The Dethalbum, Dethalbum II, Dethalbum III and Metalocalypse: The Doomstar Requiem - announced that he will release his upcoming high-stakes intergalactic extreme rock/metal album, Galaktikon II: Become The Storm, on August 25, 2017 via Megaforce Records/MRI.

While fans await a further taste of the music sampled last week, pre-orders for digital and all physical formats have become available. In addition, Small is releasing more album details such as track listing, more album art and picture disc vinyl.

Galaktikon II: Become The Storm digital/CD track listing:

  • "Some Days Are For Dying"
  • "Icarus Six Sixty Six"
  • "The Agenda"
  • "The Ocean Galaktik"
  • "My Name Is Murder"
  • "Become The Storm"
  • "Nightmare"
  • "Could This Be The End"
  • "To Kill A God"
  • "Exitus"
  • "Rebuilding A Planet"
In addition to co-production by Brendon Small and Grammy-nominated producer/engineer Ulrich Wild (who also worked on the DETHKLOK albums), Galaktikon II: Become The Storm features the distinct rhythmic powers of drum legend Gene Hoglan (TESTAMENT, DEATH, DARK ANGEL) and bassist extraordinaire Bryan Beller. They're each thrilled to deliver this highly-anticipated record to the world!

Bryan Beller says: "I really think that Galaktikon II: Become The Storm is the evolution of Brendon Small's musicality in all its forms - melodic, conceptual, operatic, brutal - that was carefully pressure-formed into this extreme rock and metal diamond that sounds totally unique, and tells a musical story that only he can tell. Bass-wise, Brendon and I worked together on the whole thing when we were cutting it, and we experimented both tonally and harmonically until we felt we had the right stuff in the right spot as the glue between his twenty million guitars and Gene Hoglan's signature metal style and feel. As always, I'm super proud to be a part of this, and I think fans will really dig it!"

Gene Hoglan adds: "I'm extremely proud to be the drum dude on the album of the year, Brendon Small's Galaktikon II: Become The Storm. It really does encapsulate Brendon's approach towards music over the years into an incredible amalgamation of his style, as well as mine. The ferocity of DETHKLOK, the melody of GALAKTIKON, and the grandeur of The Doomstar Requiem are all supremely represented in this kick ass record and I, for one, deem it to be required listening for anyone demanding that the music they listen to be ball-crushingly glorious."

Galaktikon II: Become The Storm follows the space-age theme of 2012's original Galaktikon album, with a conceptual storyline and a heavier, darker, more brutal sound. With the above-mentioned musicians behind the project, it comes as no surprise that Galaktikon II: Become The Storm is a welcomed transformation and expansion of the sound that put Brendon Small on the musical map. With uncapped time and creativity on their side, Small & Co. were able to reach above and beyond what fans have come to expect. Galaktikon II: Become The Storm proves to be Small's most commanding release yet.
