Furthermore, the user experience is designed with the metal fan in mind with stunning backdrops, hardcore avatars and rockin' items, and, to top it off, the Nuclear Blast player on SoundCloud blaring out the latest tracks of the label. The game also provides metal fans with the opportunity to compete against some of their biggest idols. Scott Ian of ANTHRAX and Damian Wilson of THRESHOLD both enjoy playing poker and will surprise fans at the tables and tournaments. Fans will even win exclusive "meet-and-greets" with their heroes.
THRESHOLD's Damian Wilson states: "I love poker and I love music. Putting the two together is like introducing girlfriends. Could be heavenly or may be all out war. See you on the Nuclear Blast Poker tables!"
Adds ANTHRAX's Scott Ian: "I am excited and curious to meet our fans on Nuclear Blast Poker and I can't wait to see who's got the skills to beat me on some of the tables."
