Nuclear Blast Asks, “Which Band Do You Want To See On Battle Band?”

battlebandscreencap

Nuclear Blast Records is asking fans to let them know which of their artists you’d like to see on kuuluu Interactive’s Battle Band, which is available for free in the App Store. The game, which looks suspiciously like Angry Birds with a metal once over, centers on a band that arrives late to their gig only to find that a group of impostor wannabes are playing their set. So what do you do? Well, naturally, you bring the stage crashing down upon them with various physics based attacks. You can watch a trailer for the game below.

Look, I’m all for a good game and I can see how this is kinda harmless. But still, I do have to say that something feels a little off about the concept of this game. You wanna smash some instruments? While I hate that idea (simply because I love instruments and would never want to see them harmed), that’s pretty harmless. But bringing down a stage onto people? Lest anyone forget, people have died that way. So yeah, I feel slightly uncomfortable about the game.

That being said, I’ll give it a shot and see what it’s about. Oh, and who do I want in there? How about some Meshuggah and some Graveyard. That’d be pretty badass.
