Even in worlds where magic doesn't exist I feel that music has a sort of power. And not just because I use a musical instrument to travel around. Music is an amazing thing able to effect different people in different ways. But there's one world where one kind of music elicits total devotion in all that hear it.
On this Earth is a death metal band named Dethklok. Normally I'm not a big fan of metal but even I can't help but become enthralled when I hear them play, especially live. But besides Dethkloks impressive ability to entrance their listeners, their mere presence causes deadly chaos. It's not intentional, and it's not due to them being clumsy, but anyone in their general area, especially when they're playing a concert, has an almost guaranteed chance of being horribly maimed if not killed. It's kind of amazing, really.
Because of this a government task force was created specifically to watch Dethklok and keep them causing even worse disasters or breaking up. The band is so popular that they account for a large percentage of their entire planets economy. If they were to break up the level of riots would be worldwide. But they have another goal as well. Some members of this team seem to think that Dethklok is going to metal apocalypse. A Metalacalypse. I'm not sure if that's true, but I intend to find out.
