Damien Cornickelson is the arrogant son of Roy Cornickelson, the founder of Crystal Mountain Records, which holds Dethklok's contract. He holds a grudge against Dethklok since Nathan Crystal Mountain Records punched him in the nose and broke his tooth when they first met. He appears in Renovationklok as the episode's main villain.


When Damien is first introduced, he is visibly a young adult, with dark brown hair, eyes, and a singular silver earring on his left ear. He is seen wearing a light green polo shirt with a dark blue shark on it.

After time has passed and Damien has aged, he gains visible facial wrinkles (prominent around his mouth and eyes) as well as a thick layer of grey hair near his temples. He has swapped out the green polo shirt for a grey business suit.


Arrogant, spoiled, and rotten to the core, Damien can best be described as a spoiled punk. He is described by a Tribunal expert as "cunning, hothead opportunist, like a rabid dog that thinks only what will benefit him at moment, and a dangerous man indeed." Like most bullies, he is a coward and abuses his status as Roy Cornickelson's heir by interfering in his father's business. He has no respect for his father or Crystal Mountain Records' employees, even admitting to slapping his father's secretary and calling her a bitch. He has also been shown to have little business sense and spends money lavishly.



"You'll be sorry for that, you son of bitch!"

Damien interrupts a meeting between his father and Dethklok, demanding money and insulting his father's management of the company. He then notices Dethklok and sarcastically asks Nathan what kind of music they play, offensively referring to him as a "long-haired monkey". Nathan responds "DEATH METAL!", then punches the young man in the face. Damien tries to punch Nathan back, but is stopped by Offdensen. Frazzled, embarrassed, and with blood dripping down his face, Damien storms out, swearing at and threatening the band.

Years later, Damien proves to have retained the grudge he developed against Dethklok (particularly Nathan). While Dethklok recovers from the aftermath of the events of the Season 2 finale (as they'd lost their manager and are now struggling to keep up with the new financial responsibilities), Damien takes advantage of their unstable situation. Taking control of the company from his terminally ill father, he cuts off their unlimited financial freedom the label's money provides.



This serves as a way to force them into renegotiating their contract, thereby gaining total control over the band. When Dethklok tries to call his bluff and play a concert, he shuts it down by literally cutting off the power, forcing them to renegotiate. However, Offdensen's unexpected return ruins his plan and he once again receives a "DETH METAL PUNCH" from Nathan.

In Dethsiduals, it is revealed that his father has recovered from his illness and regained control of Crystal Mountain Records from Damien.


  • He is one of few people who can be considered a major threat to Dethklok's music and their business (save for The Tribunal and The Revengencers). However the threat he poses to the band is minor, as long as Offdensen is around to protect the band.
