Double Brutal is the second full length album by As I Lay Dying vocalist Tim Lambesis' parody project Austrian Death Machine. Unlike the previous album, Total Brutal, Double Brutal is a two disc effort; the first disc composed of original songs inspired by Arnold Schwarzenegger movies, and the second disc being covers of songs that can relate to Schwarzenegger movies. Upon release, the album debuted at #105 on the Billboard 200.

As with Total Brutal, Double Brutal follows a similar format with a guitar solo in every song, various skits featuring Lambesis and Ahhnold, and cover art created by Ed Repka.[1]

A music video for "I Need Your Clothes, Your Boots and Your Motorcycle" was made to promote the album.[2]

A contest winner of who could impersonate Schwarzenegger well enough was presented to be featured on the album. The winner was Timothy Benham where he was dubbed as "Ahhnold’s clone" in the album's notes.
