It’s Time to Schedule a CreativeLive Clinic on Your Dethklok

November has many names: November, Nov, Movember, October II, Gary, Kh’ambal Sturt. But most importantly, it’s Toontrack Metal Month. The festivities include new software and live streaming music, but the peripheral features often wind up being the coolest parts (the Periphery features are equally swell, but as far as I know there are none announced yet).

A case in point: let’s watch Dethklok track a some music. Of course by “Dethklok” I’m actually referring to the band’s creator and recording engineer in their “Toontrack Presents: Studio Pass with Brendon Small and Ulrich Wild” clinic. Although if Toontrack wanted to go the extra mile and 3D-print a living, breathing Pickles or Murderface I’d promise to buy each and every product the company releases in the foreseeable future.

Well, given the lack of a Murderface homunculus, Brendon Small and Ulrich Wild are suitable alternatives. CreativeLive is presenting the class, in which the musician/engineer duo “will show how they engineer and mix the music of ‘Metalocalypse’ – explaining the recording techniques used for the drums, bass, guitars, vocals and effects of the fictional show’s real life band, Dethklok.”

Like all of CreativeLive’s courses, this one will stream live for free, but you can purchase access to watch it after the fact for $79. You might want to register now, because Toontrack Presents: Studio Pass with Brendon Small and Ulrich Wild airs this Wednesday and Thursday at noon, EST.
