The Metalocalypse Wiki

Batmetal is a web series comprised of three short animated music videos by Russian studio Red MEDUSA[1] subunit ArhyBES,[2] featuring Dethklok music to original Batman-themed animation.



The first video features the song “Face Fisted”. It is sung by Batman with Robin, Nightwing and Red Hood as instrumental accompaniment.

Release date — July 1, 2014

“Batmetal Returns”[]

The second video features the song “Murmaider”. There is a thin plot present, in which Batman and company rescue Aquaman from Ariel (from The Little Mermaid) and various SpongeBob SquarePants characters by gruesomely killing them. Red Robin joins the band with a guitar solo.

Release date — July 1, 2014

“Batmetal Forever”[]

The third video features the song “Awaken”. The intro was arranged by Brendon Small himself, and has a cameo from Dethklok looking condescendingly on as Batman sings in his car. The plot cuts between Batman (with all above band members and Batgirl added this time) attempting to revive longtime rival Joker (instead of Mustakrakish), and him and his crew performing live for an audience.

Release date — March 31, 2018


Nathan made a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo appearance in the update video “Where Is Batmetal?!”.
