‘Post-apocalyptic rhythm metal’em all’
Taiko Drum Master is good, clean fun, but you know what it isn’t? Metal. I mean, not just the material the game is made out of (plastic) or what actual taiko drums are built from (wood). But also the chipper J-pop just doesn’t appeal to the same crowd that bites the heads off bats and ruins Rock Band pedals. Enter Double Kick Heroes.
Described as a “post-apocalyptic rhythm metal’em all,” Double Kick Heroes features a raging metal band surviving on a zombie-infested highway, with only the manager’s Cadillac and a weaponized drumset at their disposal. Check out the video; it looks rad. I love that demon train at the end, slowly creeping closer and closer to the car. It’s so ominous.
