Los Angeles-based progressive thrash metal band PROTOTYPE has issued the following update:
"Activision's latest release in the Tony Hawk franchise, 'Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam' for the Nintendo Wii gaming system, features the PROTOTYPE track 'Synthespian' from their 2006 Nightmare Records release 'Continuum'. Other artists featured on the game's soundtrack include IRON MAIDEN, MOTÖRHEAD, SHADOWS FALL, THE DESCENDENTS, WHITE ZOMBIE, BAD BRAINS, THE AUTUMN OFFERING, MINISTRY and PUBLIC ENEMY, among others. Leveraging the Wii's new motion-based remote controller, the game allows for a very intuitive interaction of movement between the user and the game. Make the sparks, gravel and dust fly as you shred downhill and feel the adrenaline rush all the while listening to some PROTOTYPE!
"We're done with making VHS copies of the 'Live at Whisky A Go Go 1998' video and we've created a custom DVD for our fans! Recorded the night we played alongside DEATH on their 'Sound Of Perseverance' tour (whose performance that night was captured for the 'Live In L.A. - Death And Raw' DVD), the DVD will feature not only the 'Live at the Whisky' show, but also contains bonus material, including two additional performances from that year (one at the Whisky and one at the now defunct Coconut Teaszer), as well as a slide show with show flyers, pics, etc. chronicling the history of the band from its inception through 1998. Running time for the DVD is approximately 90 minutes. We'll have it available very soon so check our site often for updates."
