Gods of Metal: Ragnarock RPG on the Way; Soundtrack Features Motorhead, Armored Saint, Silvertomb and More
Metal and gaming have always gone together like a pick to guitar strings, and that’s never been more true than in Gods of Metal: Ragnarock, an upcoming RPG with metal not only the focal point of the gameplay, but on a companion soundtrack.
“Battle with the most unhinged and bizarre foes, beasts, monsters, and total poseurs imaginable within a face-melting world of epic heavy metal fantasy,” press copy teases. “Gods of Metal: Ragnarock is a highly energetic, over-the-top RPG filled with glory, teamwork, and adventure. While some games focus more on the blood and pus of metal-inspired gameplay, Gods of Metal: Ragnarock asks you to do things like:
- Pledge your allegiance to a Patron Metal God, to create your Outfit, Weapon, and Accessory to create a sweet-ass Avatar who is sure to kick ass (or die magnificently, attempting to ascend to Godhood).
- Form bands of adventurers, made up of player Positions (aka player classes) like Brutalizers, Blüdgaards, Howlers, Shredders, Chordmasters, and Amplords.
- Fight back against the enemies of Ragnarock, such as The Electric Liches of the Howling Wastes, Pit Demons of Borgourl, The Warlords of Aux, The Proaugr, those f*cking Bose Imps, and Ragnasaurs Rexes! Not to mention all the other Avatars who may get in your way as you seek glory of wild proportions in this heavy metal album inspired world!”
Sounds exciting, right? The RPG will be available in a number of different configurations with various add-ons, one of which is a CD or vinyl of the companion soundtrack featuring Motorhead, an exclusive song by Anthrax’s Charlie Benante and Butcher Babies’ Carla Harvey, Silvertomb, Armored Saint, Gygax and others.
Gods of Metal: Ragnarock is currently in the Kickstarter phase with an estimated ship date of October 2021. The campaign is already off to a very strong start, with over $12,000 raised of its $20,000 goal as of press time (stretch goals surpass $300,000), and that’s less than 24 hours since launch.
