‘Heavy Metal’ Pinball Machine Set for 2020 Release
Earlier this year, Sebastian Bach discussed his involvement with an upcoming Heavy Metal pinball machine. Now the machine, which includes music from Bach, Brendon Small, Blue Oyster Cult, Cheap Trick and others, is expected to arrive in time for the 2020 holiday season.
Incendium Online have revealed the details and specifics about the machine, which was inspired by the 300th issue of Heavy Metal and the 1981 animated movie of the same name. An exclusive variant cover edition of Heavy Metal of issue 300 will be included with every machine sold.
The gameplay revolves around the warrior heroine Taarna and the undead tailgunner Nelson. Both are given a voice for the first time in the in-game narrative. The original artwork created for the pinball machine also pays tribute to words and characters from the magazine's history.
It's a finely crafted machine, with original hand drawn artwork, exclusive custom painted Heavy Metal action figures, DMD display, a first ever Chameleon paint armor kit, LED lighting, two steel ramps and rails, a passive two ball lock, three pop bumpers, an opto spinner and three drop targets. The item is made to order and is expected to ship for "holidays 2020."
When speaking about the game earlier this year, Bach stated that he was laying down vocals while Small was recording the music. "We are recording a song from the Heavy Metal soundtrack album which is an album that I love! All I had to do was go to my vinyl library (which is in my studio), put on the record, learn this mother trucker and then lay it down," stated the singer. "This is the first pinball machine I have ever done vocals for and I am honored to be a part of this!"
