A downloadable game for Windows

The essence of heavy metal is in jeopardy when four goddesses of the underworld emerge to steal sick riffs for themselves. Almost all bands have lost their motivation and ability to play...all but one! System of a Down is the only group standing between saving heavy metal and succumbing to the goddesses like the rest. Do you have what it takes to help System save metal?
The game lies somewhere between a boss rush and a brawler, sprinkled with bullet hell elements here and there.
