Default Your favorite Comical Metal?

Mine would have to be Psychostick, but there are a few others out there that make people laugh.

Anyone who really likes a bit of humour mixed in with some blazing riffs and thunderous drumming, should check out Ziltoid The Moniscient by Devin Townsend.... a great little concept piece about a particularly malevolent "omniscient" creature named Ziltoid, who requires fine coffee to power his space ship, and, upon finding earth, attempts to sample its finest coffee beans, only to find them fetid, thus beginning his quest to destory the planet... great album!

That sounds quite interesting. I'll have to look into it.

By all means do! The music itself is actually really cool, and very much in the vein that Townsend always works in, but on this album he is less angry sounding lyrically and going for the comical story angle - but musically its as uncompromising as ever...

If Jim Henson smoked a bong then listened to Trout Mask Replica backwards at high speed then he might record an album similar to that.
