Posehn said the following about the album:

“The original concept for this album came from bands like Scatterbrain and S.O.D., and even Cheech and Chong. They all made music that was fun and funny, heavy music that also made you laugh.

I wanted this to be the ultimate comedy/metal record, a loving record that made fun of some of the things in heavy metal, so I called all my friends and asked for a bunch of favors.

There’s a Satan song, and there’s a Viking song, there’s one song that sounds like Black Metal, and then there’s one that sounds like a Van Halen party song. The intention was just to make a funny metal/comedy record for people who like both of those things.”

He also added:

“This was such a dream project for me. I wanted to take my time, I wanted it to be perfect, so it took us six years to complete. It’s the ‘Chinese Democracy‘ of comedy-metal records. And it didn’t cost thirteen million dollars to make.”

If you missed it, the first single from “Grandpa Metal”, Posehn’s cover of A-ha‘s “Take On Me”, can be found below:
