Anyone who knows slots the way a casino enthusiast would, they would know that one of the most important and most exciting characteristics in a slot game is the music. Well, you could actually say that there are 2 very important elements in a slot, one being the music, and 2 being the sound effects. They sort of combine together and intertwine into the perfect sounding melody creating the whole atmosphere and feel of the game. It’s funny because even without having your eyes open you’d be able to get a sense of what you are playing just from the whole vibe and music. If you could have a soundtrack for your life, what would it be? Would it be something quite upbeat and happy, or perhaps something with a chilling tone, or maybe you would prefer a tune that you could rock out to!
The main reason we are so interested in the music and sound of slot games today is thanks to casino game provider, Play’n Go. They have partnered with a Swedish doom metal band in combination with one of their brand new online slot machines
! Since this is a doom metal band, we can throw out the idea of this game being fairy themed, or Leprechaun themed. Although you never know considering there is of course the rockin’ leprechaun slot game by Yggdrasil which consists of a leprechaun playing an electric guitar in a wonderful concert themed surrounding. Can you recall which game we are talking about? We can give you a hint, his name is Ryan and he is ready to rock... do you remember Rainbow Ryan
? So keeping that in mind, we can’t necessarily say that because this is a Swedish doom metal band, that the game will be rock themed...or can we?
Ok, we know you are just dying to know which band this is, they are Candlemass. Formed in Stockholm, this band has released an incredible five albums and are still going strong. Play’n Go decided to do something different with their brand new release ‘House of Doom’ and teamed up with Candlemass to introduce a whole new interactive experience for us players. We will be able to listen to exclusive music created by the band, accompanied by a stunning online casino game with fantastic graphics and features. But not only this, there will be exclusive game merchandise along with other surprises which will be released over the next few months!
As you can imagine, this is a giant step for Play’n Go, we feel so excited for them, and even more excited for ourselves as we will be the lucky ones getting to play this game!
Johan Törnqvist, the CEO of Play’n Go spoke about this wonderful piece of news…
“ House of Doom sees a collaboration and marketing scope not seen before in the gaming industry, and we’re looking forward to bringing exclusive events and materials to our fans in the coming months. Our artists and developers have managed to bring an innovative concept to life which will appeal to heavy metal fans, as well as those simply wanting a top-quality slots experience. It has been a pleasure working with the renowned Candlemass on the launch. The band have contributed heavily to the creative process and we believe this partnership paves the way for a new way of marketing slots in future.”
We can fully agree with Johan here, this is something very exciting and has definitely paved the way for even more releases such as this for other casino game providers. This collaboration has never before been done within the gaming industry, and for those heavy metal fans this must be even more exciting. Of course there have been slot games with a metal theme and atmosphere, such as Motorhead
by NetEnt, but it is not the same as having a full on collaboration with a band sculptured to launch together. This proves that once again the Swedes know what they are doing, and we can only look forward to more work like this in the future.
