Who doesn’t love thrashing zombies to the sound of heavy metal music blasting around you as your wreck havok on the undead? Upcoming indie rhythm game Double Kick Heroes has you covered in that regard. “Survive through 30 levels of total madness  by killing zombies with your gundillac on the highway to hell!Only the power of Metal can save your band!“. Initially created for the Ludum Dare #34 game jam, what would become Double Kick Heroes got the Gold Medal for Audio, and took off from there.

Composed by Frédéric “Elmobo” Motte (Nightmare Creatures 1&2, Dark Earth), the game’s soundtrack is rife with heavy metal guitar work that ranges from contemplative and moody to upbeat and spunky, mixing in retro chiptune sounds throughout.

“Double Kick Heroes is the game I’ve been dreaming to score all my life. I was born a metalhead, and this game is giving me the chance to pay tribute to the music that fuels my life. I’m trying to cover as many metal genres as possible. Heavy, black, death, industrial, stoner, thrash…and I took the opportunity to invite some the incredible musicians I’ve worked with at Conkrete Studio to sing and play on some of my tracks. When listening, you’ll inevitably notice references to Iron Maiden, Rammstein, Meshuggah, Faith No More and even Babymetal!” – Frédéric “Elmobo” Motte, Composer

The music for the game is as heavy as described, featuring 28 tracks of intensity that fuels the rhythm game in which players shoot zombies by beating the keyboard in a post-apocalyptic pixelarted world. The soundtrack features a slue of additional guest contributors, including PJ666 of LOKURAH, Matt Dumas of HELL IN TOWN, Ludo Faraill of ANTHEUS and more.

Double Kick Heroes is currently in Early Access on steam for $14.99 with the soundtrack available for an additional $9.99. You can also nab the soundtrack by itself on Bandcamp and iTunes.
