Wolf Brew Games and Digerati are excited to announce Curt Victor Bryant (formally of Celtic Frost) will be recording the full soundtrack for upcoming 2D platformer "Slain."
Check out a trailer below for this Gothic combat-puzzle platform adventure with gore galore. Created by a team of 2 (yes, 2!), "Slain" will drop on PC in fall 2015 and on PS/V/WiiU/XB1 in early January. The designers also comment on the game:
"Players control Bathoryn, a hero in a Gothic world, seeking to liberate seven great towers from 7 deadly overlords. Bathoryn must battle his way through a doomed land packed with gruesome pixel art foes before ascending (or sometimes descending) each tower, defeating puzzles, traps and monsters alike. At the heart of each tower, he must confront a mighty overlord. Defeat it and Bathoryn’s quest continues. Fail, and you’ll die gruesomely – mauled by werewolves, disintegrated by floating monstrosities, squashed by great weights or torn apart by hidden blades. And you will fail…" More...
As Detroit, Michigan's Walls Of Jericho prepares to enter the studio to record a Napalm Records debut and first album in over seven years, the band is asking for fans to help be a part of the process.
Walls of Jericho wants you to record yourself saying the phrase "I Am Relentless." The band will then take these clips and make them part of an intro for a song on the new album. Please email the audio clips to woj.iamrelentless[at]gmail.com.
This new song is attached to the Relentless Foundation, which has a mission to build relationships and change lives by uniting strong men and women with even stronger children. The Relentless Detroit Foundation was created to raise money, awareness and support for local MI families with children diagnosed with life threatening illnesses.
The foundation raises the bulk of the money donated by hosting a yearly powerlifting meet. Power lifters from the United States and Canada come together for this event after spending months training and raising funds to support the families involved.

In its near-five-minutes running time you will see the kidnapping of a priest, smoking, profanity, drinking and brandishing of weapons. Musically, the song is heavy and hook-laden. More...
