Tim Schafer reveals Brütal Legend soundtrack, solves a Rubik’s Cube

Brütal Legend‘s soundtrack is huge. So huge in fact, that creator Tim Schafer can solve a Rubik’s Cube in the time it takes to read off the names of every song that will be featured in the game. If you don’t believe me, take a look at the video above, which pits Schafer’s puzzle-solving prowess against the list-reading expertise of Emily Ridgwood, Double Fine’s head music director. After all, what’s more metal than Rubik’s Cubes? Aside from, y’know… Metal.

The roster is a metalhead’s wet dream, with tracks from every dark corner of heavy metal history, including Judas Priest, Manowar, Dimmu Borgnir, Mastodon, Slayer, Dethklok and much more. “This soundtrack took years to put together as we wanted to represent every genre of Metal, and also have the perfect music for every epic moment in the game,” Schafer says. “It’s designed to be loved by Metal fans, and for those who are not, it will either convert them or make their heads explode … or both.”

There’s a lot to be excited about in Brütal Legend, and this announcement is just icing on the blood-stained, maggot-infested cake.
