In 2012 Small self-released his solo album, Brendon Small's Galaktikon, independently on his personal record label BS Records. He funded the album himself, and used all of the profits he received from the album to fund future projects. In 2013 Small made the decision to release the fourth Dethklok album, The Doomstar Requiem, on his personal label (as opposed to the usual Williams Street Records) because he wanted to make sure there was a future for Dethklok's music. He explained that if he had not done this, Dethalbum III would have been the last Dethklok record released. He went on to explain that the only way to keep Dethklok's music going was by making this personal investment, regardless of whether or not it would be financially beneficial to him.
