Periphery's Misha Mansoor, Joe Satriani, Arch Enemy's Michael Ammot & Angela Gassow, Andrew WK and Wayne Static aren't just heavy metal heroes, they're now playable characters in a new video game.
What the what?!
Eternal Descent is a comic book featuring the aforementioned musicians within it's pages and they have just released a new iOS game where you can "tag team" with the guitar gods against the forces of evil. Here is the official description:
Eternal Descent's Heavy Metal Heroes brings the dark fantasy world of the cult comic series to life on all your iOS devices, so get ready to carve a path through the endless hordes and fight your way to the gates of Hell!
Power up along the way with tag-team assists from guitar legend – Joe Satriani, the electric lightbulb – Misha Mansoor, and party hard with Andrew W.K.. Face off against metal master – Michael Amott, disco killer – Wayne Static, and Pit Lord Loki's army of darkness – in running brawls and rapid fire boss battles.
Sounds like a fun time. The game is available for three bucks in the iTunes store and there will be a bunch of signings with the musicians in the game at San Diego's comic con this weekend.
