Brutal Legend is the story of Eddie Riggs, a professional and dedicated roadie. He's a fan of metal, and as far as he can tell, metal is dead. He spends his days keeping a mediocre wannabe-band called Kabbage Boy from killing themselves through inept stupidity. One day, Riggs is badly injured in an accident. His blood falls onto his belt buckle, somehow causing him to be sucked into a world that looks like the cover of a metal album and is populated by wild terrors led by the evil Emperor Doviculus. As far as Eddie can tell, he was summoned to this land to save its human inhabitants from the demons who roam the world and to teach everyone the true glory of metal, and that's just what he intends to do.
