Wayne Static, Joe Satriani + More Cameo in ‘Eternal Descent’ Video Game
Heavy Metal and fantasy tend to go hand in hand, especially when it comes to artwork rendered on T-shirts, posters, and album covers. But we now live in a digital age, and this blend of visual style can now be translated as an iOS game, as 'Eternal Descent: Heavy Metal Heroes' is now available at the App Store.
Guitar great and Chickenfoot axeman Joe Satriani, former Static-X frontman Wayne Static, Periphery's Misha Mansoor and Arch Enemy members Michael Amott and Angela Gossow are among the musicians featured in the title, which is based on the dark fantasy comic book series of the same name. Andrew W.K., Mansoor, and Satriani contributed their music as well as a bit of voice acting to help bring an added depth to the title. Meanwhile Static and Amott turn up as two of the game's tough to beat bosses.
From the looks of the trailer, the game is an action-packed brawler slathered with a healthy dose of apocalyptic beat downs. Getting the chance to pulverize rock stars Amott and Static in hellish fashion should be one of this title's main appeal, and it's also safe to assume a ton of guitar driven tunes give the game that added, metallic crunch.
The app, which can be played on the iPad and iPhone (4S and up), can be downloaded for $2.99. Mansoor, who is set to release his first solo album later this year, was scheduled to attend the San Diego Comic Con today (July 18) to promote the title.
