I know, some of you may not get that feeling thanks to the very linear demo presented but this is much more Giants: Citizen Kabuto than a straightforward hack n' slasher. You're placed into the skin of roadie Eddie Riggs, who works for a faux-metal band and feels that he should have been born in a different time. Eddie is crushed by a collapsing stage during a botched concert stunt. When a bit of his blood drips into his totally wicked belt buckle, it summons Ormagoden, a giant beast made of chrome and awesome who transports and revives Eddie into a land of Metal."
