DEATH Song “Crystal Mountain” Set To Appear In Game “Gargula Bloodrush”

Thursday, 9th January 2014

The DEATH song “Crystal Mountain” can be heard in the new arcade game Gargula Bloodrush from Paranormal Games, a humble south Australian indie game developer in Adelaide. “Crystal Mountain” from DEATH’s timeless 1995 album Symbolic, which was reissued in 2008 through Roadrunner Records.

Gargula Bloodrush is described as the 2D infinite runner that throws you into a nightmarish retro-style world of horror and gore. It combines fast action play, upgradeable abilities, an ominous art style influenced by comics, horror and 16-bit games of the ’80s/’90s.

The remastered Symbolic LP included the original album tracks plus several previously unreleased, rare, mostly instrumental demo recordings that were completed in early 1994 with the lineup of Chuck Schuldiner (guitar), Gene Hoglan (drums) and Steve DiGiorgio (bass). The package also came with brand new liner notes written by metal journalist Don Kaye. DEATH’s Chuck Schuldiner died on December 13, 2001 after a battle with pontine glioma, a rare type of brain tumor.
