REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS) and Double Fine Productions, Inc. today announced the complete soundtrack for Brütal Legend™, the face-melting action video game from Tim Schafer starring Jack Black as the roadie Eddie Riggs. Boasting an impressive list of over 100 fist-pumping tracks sure to make your blood boil, Brütal Legend puts metal’s most celebrated rock Gods in the forefront of this unique 3rd person action experience. With a total of 75 killer bands showcased, including legends such as Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Megadeth and Motörhead, Brütal Legend will unleash the inner headbanger in every gamer on October 13th in North America and on October 16th in Europe.

Brütal Legend is an epic action game from visionary developer Tim Schafer. Jack Black stars as Eddie Riggs, a legendary roadie summoned to a world of Heavy Metal where mountains are made of amplifiers, killer spiders spin guitar strings and Rock Legends roam the landscape. As Eddie, crush skulls with a battle axe, ravage the road in a super-charged Hot Rod and unleash the power of Rock to reign down fire from the sky – all to save humanity and become a Brütal Legend.

”This soundtrack took years to put together as we wanted to represent every genre of Metal, and also have the perfect music for every epic moment in the game,” said Tim Schafer, President of Double Fine Productions. “It’s designed to be loved by Metal fans, and for those who are not, it will either convert them or make their heads explode… or both.”

“It would be a grave disservice to merely use the term ‘Ultimate Heavy Metal Soundtrack’ here,” said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Music Marketing for Electronics Arts. “Instead, what we’ve unleashed is without question the most mind-blasting, face-melting, skull-shattering alliance of Classic Metal, Thrash Metal, New Wave, British Metal, Black Metal, Power Metal, Doom Metal, Death Metal, Hair Metal, Goth Metal and Industrial Metal ever decreed by The Gods Of Metal. Its very existence will condemn your soul to eternal brütal damnation. Yes, it’s that good!”
