    Though having an entertaining show backing it up will make Dethalbum III an easy purchase for fans of the program, it's an album good enough to stand all on its own.

    While fans of the show will certainly get extra layers of inference out of Dethalbum III, the most amazing thing about it is, all on its own, it stands as a hilarious and skilful example of the genre.

    The band's latest volume, Dethalbum III, features some of Small's best melodies and instrumentation to date.

    Dethalbum III makes for further arse kicking. [20 Oct 2012, p.54]

    Dethalbum III's tongue-in-cheek bravado delivers a more potent hour of music than many of the icons who originally inspired it.

    Other than "I Ejaculate Fire," the lyrics aren't that funny--it often seems like Small is trying to write real metal songs. And it's hard to see the point of that.

    Brendon Small has crafted an album that not only stands out as a Dethklok album, but it stands out as an album in general. Dethklok has gown far beyond a metal band on a TV show. Best Track: Crush The Industry Expand

    An Album that only has six good songs out of the whole bunch. Small's vocals have gotten worse this time around, as he is now incoherent while singing. While is has been a running gag during the show, you could still make out most of what he was saying with the original Dethalbum. Since then, the soundtracks have seen a reduction in clarity in Nathan's voice to have it is now. And its disappointing.

    As for the sound tracks, there are some good songs in the mix (not great or even amazing though), and when you compare them against the rest of the Album the quality of the overall CD begins to drop sharply. A few songs even sound the same, about mid way through the album, which just kills the uniqueness of one song when they all sound similar.
