Nail'd Soundtrack Gets Heavy Dose Of Hardcore Metal
There's one thing you always need with high-octane, super-intense racers: a damn good soundtrack.
If you're not familiar with nail'd, it's an ATV racer by Polish developer Techland and set to be published by Deep Silver for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 later this year. Many will say it's a straight-up Pure rip-off, what with it's high-flying tricks and focus on ATVs, but...well, so what? Racers are racers, and there's only so much variety possible in the off-road racing niche. Anyway, along with what we hope is solid and entertaining gameplay, nail'd will boast quite the metal supergroup. It's a who's who of metal bad-assery, including Raymond Herrera and Christian Olde Wolbers (Fear Factory, Arkaea), Pat Lachman (Damageplan), Wayne Static (Static X), Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed), Stephen Carpenter (Deftones), Jed Simon (Strapping Young Lad), and John Boecklin (DevilDriver). These guys came together to produce 3 dedicated songs for the game: "Count for Something," "Through the Walls of Flame" (vocals by Jasta) and "Decimator" (vocals by Wayne Static). It's really cool to have songs by pros made specifically for a game, and in addition, bands like Slipknot, Aggressive Chill, Backyard Babies, Queens of the Stone Age and more will deliver a hefty punch via musical accompaniment.
So if off-road racing is your bag and you're a hard rock and metal fan, you should have a blast playing nail'd.
