The world’s first exclusively death and grindcore metal themed PS2 game, Earache Extreme Metal Racing, will be unleashed unto the public on Friday, February 2.
The game features an in-game MP3 player with access to three hours of metal music including unreleased tracks, plus over an hour of video clips, including several exclusive never-before-seen clips that can be accessed during the higher levels of the game. Tracks include tunes by Napalm Death (right), At The Gates, Cathedral, The Haunted, Hate Eternal, Ultraviolence, Cult Of Luna, Beecher, Urkraft, Anata, Mistress, Severe Torture and many others.
Gamers can choose from 10 Earache Records racing teams, including Deicide, Morbid Angel, The Berzerker, Akercocke and Municipal Waste to compete on the track or the Deathmatch Arena, while killing zombies and destroying the other teams' vehicles with a wide variety of high-tech weapons. You can even score Skull tokens, which enable you to open more unlocked portions of the game, more racetracks and more unseen clips.
I gotta say, I love metal, but the idea of hearing those annoying cookie monster growling vocals over and over while I’m trying to race and kill is less than appealing. If I wanna hear bad metal while I game, I’ll play Guitar Hero! (Let the comments begin!)
