Renaissance man Brendon Small is getting ready to devote some serious time to the Dethklok portion of his career. The band is preparing to hit the road in support of Dethalbum III, the newest companion album to the Adult Swim network’s Metalocalpyse series. Small spoke to Guitar World about the upcoming tour, his cohorts in the live band, and the well of guitar playing:
I’ve just been working on some different stuff on guitar, a few different kinds of techniques. I was more into legato stuff over the past couple of years, so I just kept challenging myself to do some stuff that was outside of what’s comfortable. Plus I think at some point you just run out of licks, so you have to create melodies.
