Some Time Ago... is a track from The Doomstar Requiem and a scene from the musical special of the same name. It was written by Brendon Small and sung by Brendon, featuring Mike Keneally as Toki.



ConceptEdit

Some Time Ago... is a musical scene from Doomstar explaining how Dethklok first met Toki after firing Magnus. Pickles holds a band meeting and arranges an audition for a second guitarist despite Skwisgaar's objections. Pickles agrees to let Skwisgaar be the sole guitarist of Dethklok if he succeeds in besting every auditioner, which proves to be quite a simple task for him. Just as Skwisgaar is basking in his victory, a homeless teenager shows up late and introduces himself as Toki from Norway. He begs for a chance to audition and Skwisgaar agrees to test him.

Toki introduces himself to Dethklok

The scene shows the characters' appearance at the age when Dethklok began; all of them appear noticeably younger than present day with the exception of Skwisgaar, who looks identical aside from an all-white wardrobe. Pickles appears to have much more of a leadership role at this point in Dethklok's past, with Nathan saying very little. Skwisgaar also seems to have much more of a "loner" attitude at this time, sitting by himself apart from the others during their band meeting.

When Toki first appears in the doorway, his shadow appears to have feathery wings.


LyricsEdit

[Pickles]

Magnus has been kicked out of the band

I think the four of us understand

that we gotta make a record

Gotta make it great

It's our very first one

Must annihilate


Since we fired the man

we are short one artist

We need to fill the void

We need a guitarist

but it's gotta fit right

Gotta be the right vibe

and it's gotta fuckin' rock

because we are Dethklok


[Skwisgaar]

I disagrees

Don't you sees?

We don't needs nobody else!

Dis wills bes a one-guitar band

Yes, indeeds

Ain't nobodies goods as me

could match my speeds

and conquers mes


[Pickles]

Look at all these hopeful auditioners

Oh, they came from so far away!

But if you show them that you are the best

then yes, you may have your way

If you hack them all into pieces

with your mighty shredding axe

then we will forever from this moment on be a four-head beast

and you will be the only guitarist of Dethklok!


[Skwisgaar]

All right!

Shred its now!

You're goings down!

Take one more!

Dis ams a war!

Shred its now!

You're goings down!

Goings down!

YEAH!


I am a wizards

I am a sorcerer

and I've proven to dis world

dat we don't need nobodies

we ams a one-guitar band!

Yes, indeed!


[Skwisgaar and Dethklok]

You have been bested by the master!

Bow before your glowing guitar God!


[Nathan]

Someone keeps on knocking

Someone's at the door

Let them in right now

Appears to be one more


[Toki]

Hellos

I'm sorries

I got lost along the way

My name is Toki

I am just a boy, here from Norway

I'm so upsets

I missed my auditions appointments todays

but I thinks dat

you should gives me a chance anyhow

because I has dis feeling...

Something tells me this was meant to be...

Do you feel this electricity!?

Gives me dis chance!!


[Skwisgaar]

All rights

You seems so nice

It's a shames you must go downs dis way...
