"Mordland" is the ninth episode of Metalocalypse. It aired on October 1, 2006 on Adult Swim.
It's Fan Day at Mordland and excited fans get to watch Dethklok in their natural environment, to the great annoyance of the band. Two of the most obsessed fans of the band try to blackmail Dethklok and it ends rather badly for them.
Pickles wakes up after a night of drinking and sees a large group of fans in his room, watching him. He quickly remembers that it's fan day, and that Mordhaus has been opened to the public for that year's DethFan day. In the Tribunal meeting, the Tribunal decide to interrogate Edgar and Eric Jomfru following the event. On the way into the event, visitors are informed of the rules at Mordhaus, including that the Klokateers are armed with "new .50 caliber rifles that can kill you from almost three miles away," and that "no recording devices or cameras will be allowed, or your life will be terminated." This shows Dethklok's lack of care for their fans, although they decide that they will play a secret song for the fans. Meanwhile, the members of Dethklok (excluding Skwisgaar) are sitting around the dining room table, obviously very hung over. The four members throw up, with Nathan even throwing up blood.
During the visitors' tour of Mordhaus, they get to spectate the everyday activities of the band members. They get to watch Skwisgaar practicing his guitar, Toki building a model airplane, Pickles trying to unclog his toilet, and Nathan getting a liver transplant. Soon, all of the visitors gather inside the Main Murderhall to hear the secret song. The Jomfru brothers record the song, as well as it's music video, using secret recording devices hidden inside Edgar's wheelchair.
The Jomfru threatEdit
Later, the band members are gathered inside the dining room and complain about fan day, and state that they will be glad when it's over. Suddenly, a Klokateer brings in the Jomfu brothers, saying "he is in a wheelchair, my lords. I did not know what to do." The Jomfu brothers introduce themselves, and tell the members that they must pay for a good review on Diefordethklok.com. The brothers reveal that they recorded the secret song, and will release it on the internet unless the band pays the brothers a lot of money.
Charles Foster Offdensen leads the brothers down a series of hallways and elevators. On the way, Edgar reveals that they are from Sandusky, Ohio. Eventually, they reach an outdoor corridor. Offdensen tells the brothers that their money is behind the door at the end of the corridor. When the brothers are unaware, Offdensen recommends that they serpentine, before closing the doors and locking them in the corridor. After Offdensen leaves, the Klokateers open fire on the brothers, killing Eric instantly. Edgar safely reaches the end of the hallway, but is later imprisoned in the band's dungeon. The episode ends with the band watching a zeppelin crash outside of their window.
Songs featured in this episodeEdit
- The murder of Eric Jomfru is the first indication in the series that Dethklok has extrajudicial power.
- The news report at the start of the episode stated that Mordhaus opened for the first time. This was likely an oversight on the writer's part, as Mordhaus was open on Muderface's birthday in Birthdayface.
- The green tissue box Pickles uses in the bathroom has his name written on it.
