The wait is over - Dethklok mastermind Brendon Small has unleashed a brand new track cut from his upcoming high-stakes intergalactic extreme rock/metal album, Galaktikon II: Become The Storm out August 25th via Megaforce Records/MRI.

Brendon Small says: "I wrote all the riffs for "My Name Is Murder" in one sitting, and it quickly became a favorite while we were making the record. Story-wise, this song is about a bad dude doing very bad things, and writing from the POV of a bad guy is very, very fun for me."

"My Name Is Murder" is available as an instant grat download when you pre-order via iTunes and Amazon.
