A compelling soundtrack based Heavy Metal is the glue that holds together this set of genres.
Brutal Legend is a particular title, dedicated to all the players who prefer to discover products a little ‘experimental imperfect but that can charm.

The adventure begins with Eddie that opens the way for impressing the enemy with his ax and generating lightning that flow from his guitar. And here come into play Headbanger, muscular characters but with little brain, and they can not do anything but move the head up and down. They fall in love immediately of metal and are at the service of Eddie followed him in his adventures.
The graphic includes some changes, it is the small details that can enrich the aesthetics of Brutal Legend. You have created some new effects, such as Anti Aliasig, SSAO and Depth of Field.
