  1. Wow I just saw the soundtrack....and all I can say is that it is amazing!!!!! You guys at Double Fine truly did a fantastic job getting real metal in the Game. True metal, from bands like Judas Priest, Manowar, Iced Earth, Savatage, and so on. Simply amazing!!!!

    Metal covers

    Yeah those are some amazing cover art...and great bands too ( \m/ Stormwarrior, Warbringer, etc)... Here's a few more: Helstar - King of Hell Iced Earth - Framing Armagedon Primal Fear - 16.6 Lion's Share - Dark Hours It's nice to see with you three that there are other people out there like good metal!!!
  3. Xaladin, thesandlion, Seniormeld, and Hungryfreak seem to have all suggested fanatic stuff for sure!!! Other stuff that could work really well: The King of Hell - Helstar Metal on Metal - Anvil Abandoned - Vicious Rumors And obviously lots of stuff from the following bands would work great too: Judas Priest Manowar Helloween Gamma Ray
  4. That's a very good thing to hear from someone who is not into Metal. As a Metalhead, I always though that the Metal Universe was an awesome concept but I never knew if others, who were not into Metal, would also feel about it when it came into the format of a game. I am hoping that this game shows what Metal is really about because I believe that many people have incorrect vision of what Metal is truly about. Maybe and hopefully this game will help to get others to like the music that I love. And hopefully this game will help people to understand the difference between what is and is not Metal (not that it is perfect, but check out this video for an example of what is and what should not be considered Metal (again not perfect)).
  5. I think that is a very good point; however, they need to make sure that it is Metal and not poser fake Metal. Even semi well known bands could work really well. Bands like: Helloween, King Diamond, Manowar, Iced Earth, Candlemass, Primal Fear, Helstar, etc. If anything, I think that the game should stay away from the "mainstream" Metal and for what is know so far about the game, for example: with using the song Mob Rules from Black Sabbath (with Dio instead of something with Ozzy), it seems that they are on the right track of good true Metal.
  6. Yeah I voted an 11......it's 1 louder then 10!
  7. Death metal as in growling? Arch Enemy (it's a chick, but she growls, so it's awesome), At The Gates (is pretty famous but I don't like his voice personally), maybe Amon Amarth or Finntroll (Finntroll isn't in English, but it's very growly and folky. Amon Amarth has most of its stuff in English but the occasional swedish song does exist, BUT I don't like most of their stuff). Or Cradle of Filth, who does an amazing death metal cover of Iron Maiden's "Hallowed Be Thy Name" which is what got me into death metal in the first place. To continue to help, not that I am the biggest Death Metal/Black Metal fan, but you could also check out stuff like: Death Metal: Carcass, Morbid Angel, Obituary, Opeth, Dark Tranquillity and Quo Vadis (lesser know band from Montreal, they play progressive death metal) Black Metal: Mercyful Fate, Mayhem, Darkthrone, Dimmu Borgir With that being said, if you like Slayer, you might want to check out more Thrash Metal, bands like Exodus, Sepultura, Overkill, Kreator, etc. Also, you should probably check out Venom and Death as they were big parts in creating Black and Death Metal. Oh, and not that I know for sure, but I though Cradle of Filth were more on the Black Metal side of things.
  8. Lol, that's a great idea!!! But in all seriousness, I also think that this game should have a large enough soundtrack, because after all, what is a game about Metal without Metal? Oh, and I agree Judas Priest need to be in this game, any song can do (although some better then others (Exciter>Parental Guidance)).
  9. That seems to be a very good suggestion. I believe that, in general, Metal has a very bad image because it so diverse. When someone, who does not know much about metal, starts to think about metal they always seem to think about the negative aspects right away. Most people think of Metal to be really extreme, they think that all who like metal are devil worshipers, etc. This game could teach people the different types of Metal and show that there is a type of Metal for almost everyone. Here is a taste of various types of Metal (might not be the best examples, but it's late and youtube has it's limits) -What I simply call Metal: bands like Judas Priest, , -Thrash Metal: bands like Megadeth, -Power Metal: bands like , Hammerfall-Progressive metal: bands like -Death Metal: bands like -Black Metal: bands like and the list of types of Metal goes on and on...
  10. Wow I don't even know where to start since there are so many great Metal bands that I love so much....ok well maybe I do know where to start, lets start with the Metal Gods!!! Yeah, you guessed it, above all other bands, I love Judas Priest!!! Other of my favorites bands include: -Megadeth -Helloween -Metalium -GammaRay -Manowar I also need to mention other bands that I love: -Primal Fear -Helstar (and all other James Rivera bands, including Destiny's End, Distant Thunder, Seven Witches, Vicious Rumors, etc) -Hammerfall -Racer X -Dream Evil -Dragonforce -Iced Earth -Stratovarius The list goes can go on since I still have not mentioned bands like Slayer, Anthrax, Flotsam and Jetsam, Dio, Malmsteen, Testament, Beyond Fear, Firewind, Symphony X, King Diamond, Lost Horizon, Rhapshody, etc....etc... I just love good Metal!!!
  11. Whimps and posers leave the hall! Like them or not(I personally love them), Manowar does fit this game perfectly.
  12. Going back a bit to music suggestions, this game needs Manowar!!!! If there is one band that lives and breaths what this games seems to be about it is the band that are the Kings of Metal, Manowar. I can't even begin to explain how similar this game and Manowar are....wait maybe a few videos will help those who don't know Manowar Warriors of the World Return of the Warlord Live version of Call to Arms Random pics with Loki God of Fire playing in the backround Anyways, like I said, this game and Manowar belong together!
