Me for once,would love some nice tunes and a great score to this !
Maybe I am to old,
but this Music doesn't appeal at all to me in a Splatterhouse game, and is partly a game breaker ..for sure some fun points lost here!

Love the old Splatterhouse Games so was looking forward to it

looks like there may be some good ol' side scrolling sequences.

That sure is a lot of splatter.

Industrial death metal soundtrack? Honestly would not accept anything less for a modernized game in this franchise.

That said, most of what I have seen of the game over the past year, makes me worry this game is going to fall on it's face. I hope I am wrong, spent many a day back during 8-bit and 16-bit playing Splatterhouse games, and have lots of fond memories to go with. So I'm really hoping this one turns out awesome, so that I can add some new fond memories of the series to my brain to go with the ones from 20 years ago. The recent changes in the art direction, plus the addition of some old school side-scrolling bits, are both steps in the right direction IMO. Even so, I just get a bad feeling that it's not going to be enough to save this game.

Nice soundtrack though.

The blood may be red splatter but the game looks like a lot of brown splatter in my opinion. Wasted license.

I can't believe retailers will stock a game like this but not an AO game like Duke Nukem (is looking to be) because of an off-screen blowjob.

Fucking disgraceful.

Are most horror films filled with brain dead heavy metal? Nope, they have atmospheric orchestral soundtracks because they add to the atmosphere instead of giving people headaches.

Added to the troubled development and mediocre visuals this game looks like a massive failure in every possible department.

Those bands are "metal" ;-)
Some of the names should ring a bell even though you're not into metal...
And some of them are even very very big in the States and Europe.

Cavalera Conspiracy are the Cavalera Brothers (Sepultura)

The Haunted are some of the orignal members of AT The Gates (founders of Gothenburg Metal /Melodic Death like Dark Tranquillity and IN Flames)

Lamb of God/ Mastodon are HUGE in the modern metal world. Bought all of LOG's albums even though their kind of the same ;-) Hardcore LOG fans will disagree of course...

And Five Finger Death Punch is starting to get really big I heard ;-)

No, movies do not always have metal in it because often the focus is set on atmosphere. With Splatterhouse the focus is probably set on gore, violence and "brootal fun" and I think there's no music that fits better than all kinds of metal(core).

I remember my first time travelling to Wacken Open Air (1999) even though I hated metal at this time. But since then I listen to it - mostly to bands which I claimed to make utter crap noise a few years ago.
If you see the success of bands like In Flames (which used to be good and heavy), Avenged Sevenfold in the States, there has to be a huge market, mainly since all the emo/metalcore Bands started to get all the kids in to the "scene" ;-)


And don't get me started on the headache "fact" ;-) Because this can be said about every musical genre.

Yeah, this isn't a suspenseful horror movie; it's Splatterhouse

That's not to say there won't be some jump out moments, with some relatively quiet build up, but how do you promote that in a soundtrack news item?

High on Fire...fuck yeah :D

Try playing the originals. They had atmospheric soundtracks.

Why should I laugh?
As I mentioned in the first post I wasn't into metal at all when I first went to Wacken Open Air. But there I saw Rage (not against the machine ;-) ) and I really liked there XIII show there. The same goes for Edguy which where the opening act for Wacken back then. I had also seen Dimmu Borgir, Children Of Bodom, The Haunted etc. there and I couldn't understand why someone would torture himself by "listening" to that noise.
Back from Wacken Open Air I really got into Edguy,Rage, Gamma Ray, Helloween, Blind Guardian and these kind of stuff whereas I really had to force myself to get into In Flames because of the awesome Only For the Weak-Live Perfomance at Wacken. Suddenly it wasn't noise anymore but beautiful music ;-) The same with Children Of Bodom (Hatebreeder/Follow The Reaper) and some years later Dimmu, Cradle,...

Nightwish was a very good band back then as they were the opening act for the European RAGE-Tour.

For about 7 years now I haven't listened to "normal" metal... instead I'm really digging the Melodic Death, Deathcore and Metalcore stuff.
Bands like Dark Tranquillity, Heaven Shall Burn, Parkway Drive, As I Lay Dying, Caliban, God Forbid , I Killed The Prom Queen, and all the other bands ;-)
