Brutal Legend cranks out heavy metal setlist

Judas Priest, Motorhead, Black Sabbath raise hell for soundtrack of Double Fine Productions action game; 75 bands signed on for 100 songs.


Last week, Double Fine Productions put its legal dispute with Activision behind it, agreeing to settle the dispute over Brutal Legend out of court. While the terms of the settlement weren't disclosed, today brings the first official confirmation that Brutal Legend is still set to make its October 13 North American debut.

Double Fine and Electronic Arts today announced the full soundtrack for its upcoming action game Brutal Legend. Given that the game follows heavy metal roadie Eddie Riggs (voiced by Jack Black) on a trip through the underworld, it's no surprise the audio accompaniment is uniformly hard rock. The sheer abundance of metal is more noteworthy, given that Brutal Legend will feature more than 100 licensed songs in total, pulled from the catalogs of 75 different bands.

In addition to obvious selections like Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Motorhead, and Black's own Tenacious D (all of which had their lead singers serve as voice actors during the game's development), the Brutal Legend setlist digs deeper into the genre. Double Fine also signed on once-forgotten Canadian rockers Anvil (subject of a recent critically acclaimed documentary), hair metal acts like Skid Row and FireHouse, and more current acts like DragonForce and Cradle of Filth.
