Brutal Legend, the heavy metal video game has released the above trailer which leaves a good first impression. The game starring Jack Black as Eddie Riggs, a heavy metal roadie. Eddie somehow gets transported to mythical lands only found in metal album covers that namely involve lightning shooting out of guitars and giant amplifiers.
According to Wikipedia (caution: may not be reliable!) the soundtrack is set to include brand new music by Zakk Wylde, Tim Skold, Wolfmother, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, and Ronnie James Dio, with extended guitar solos by Judas Priest guitarists K. K. Downing and Glenn Tipton. Has the success of games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band set the table for a true metal game to become a popular franchise? We will have to wait until October to find out.
