Anthrax – “Worship Music” – Amen to that…

Caught in a Mosh!

From the file marked “Thank God they’re still going!” comes this live performance by Anthrax of new shizz, “The Devil You Know”, on Jimmy Fallon’s show the other night (Via the enterprising and always excellent folk at Metal Sucks).

It's a madhouse!

Their new record, “Worship Music” is being hailed as their best effort since the early Nineties – I shall be tracking down a stream so I can have a listen.

“Warhammer 40K: Space Marine” – meet the composers

Gamespot in the US has a cool interview with Cris Velasco and Sascha Dikiciyan, the composers of the score for Relic/THQ’s “Warhammer 40K: Space Marine” game, which includes some streaming tracks for you to listen to.

Eat plasma death, Ork-based ne'er-do-well!

“Titus’ Theme” is the stand-out from this selection but the game’s score is a superb piece of work – I hear that it gets a release outside of the Collector’s Edition later in September.  Which will be nice, as I bought the regular edition of the game.

Making music to slay Orks to...

Doctor Who – “The God Complex”

Scary puppet heads. Scary puppet heads are cool.

SFX have their usual spoiler-free preview of next week’s “Doctor Who” episode, “The God Complex”.

I draw your attention to spoiler 17 –  “You’re doing it in your pants”…

Your UK games chart for September 12th, 2011

Zombies beat Space Marines – news at eleven.

That's it, I'm bloody calling ABTA...

Per the story over at Eurogamer today, the first weekend of the Autumn Games Apocalypse (TM) saw big-hitter titles like “Dead Island”, “Warhammer 40K: Space Marine” and “Resistance 3” battling for domination at the top of the UK All Formats Games Chart.

And, as intimated above, Techland/Deep Silver’s controversial Zombie-slashing RPG “Dead Island” made it a one-two for new IP as Relic/THQ’s “Warhammer 40K: Space Marine” entered the all-format charts at the top spot and second place, respectively.   Sony’s “Resistance 3” reasserted the popularity of the series and platform by scoring a fourth place debut – last week’s number one, the multi-format Ubisoft “Deus Ex: Human Revolution” slipped to third.

Played One, Skipped Two - time to catch-up with part Three?

In related news, Game are now stocking new release Blu-Ray movies  as well as the gaming titles that their name suggests – you can pick-up your copy of the new “Star Wars” blu-ray from their locations alongside your copy of “Gears of War 3”.  HMV selling more iPods than CD’s, Game selling BDs – whatever next?
