Metal Bands Signs On For 'Fallout: Brotherhood Of Steel'

by Rainier on Jan. 9, 2004 @ 4:45 p.m. PST

Players join the Brotherhood of Steel, whose mission is to maintain peace in the grim post-nuclear world of Fallout. Challenged by hordes of ghouls, mutants and other radioactive nightmares, players utilize a combination of intense combat strategies including melee, ranged weapons and explosives to defeat the mutant army in hopes of restoring humanity in a nearly unlivable universe. Welcome to the wasteland.

Slipknot, a Roadrunner Records artist, is a nine-member sonic wrecking crew from Des Moines, IA which has made uncompromising, unadulterated music that has moved the body and twisted the mind for the past five years. With two platinum-selling albums and two platinum video releases to their credit, Slipknot has changed the face of aggressive music as we know it. Donning individual horror masks and uniform boiler suits, Slipknot has played to hundreds of thousands of fans worldwide and left them bloodied, bruised and screaming for more. Slipknot is not just about the music - they are a movement and an undeniable one at that.

Meshuggah (Nuclear Blast) was named "one of the ten most important hard and heavy bands" by Rolling Stone and have earned respect and admiration from fans and musicians alike. They have been featured on The Osbournes and were part of the Ozzfest 2002 tour.

"We are very excited to get Fallout out to the public. We wanted this game to feel very cohesive in the sense that all of the music was composed and/or arranged by musicians from the same genre of music; it's unlike anything we've seen before with metal music in a game. The dark and aggressive nature of this music, like the Fallout game itself, gives the sound track a feeling of honesty and depth from the musicians who do this best." states Gene Semel, Audio Director of Interplay Entertainment Corp.

Additional music from Roadrunner Records includes Killswitch Engage, providing a driving rhythm section and a dual guitar assault with music that both crushes and soothes, and Chimaira, with an almost-impenetrable sonic din and paint-shredding vocals. Devin Townsend (Heavy-Devy Music) of Strapping Young Lad (Century Media Records) contributes 30 minutes of ambient and battle music.

Skinlab (Century Media Records) contributes two new songs and a premiere music video from their upcoming album - "The Nerve Damage Sessions" as well as some battle music from their current album "reVolting Room".

Also included in the large list of music for Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel are two bands from the Earache Records roster: Society 1, an industrial-metal wrecking crew fronted by the shaman of debauchery, Matt Zane, and Cult of Luna, a crushing, hypnotic noise-core band from Sweden. Other groups include Celldweller (Position Music) and Craig "Stuart" Garfinkle (Midiot Music).

In Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, players join the courageous Brotherhood of Steel whose mission is to maintain peace in the grim post-nuclear world of Fallout. Challenged by hordes of ghouls, mutants and other radioactive nightmares, players utilize a combination of intense combat strategies including melee, ranged weapons and explosives to fulfill their daunting task of defeating the mutant army in hopes of restoring humanity in a nearly unlivable universe.
