Dust off the drum set with A-Band on Xbox

About time you could use those drums again.
Indie developer, Flammable Games, has just released its' first game on the Xbox Live Indie Store this past Friday, the thirteenth of April. Twelve indie bands from around the world have joined together to create a one-of-a-kind track list that is sure to get your adrenaline pumping as you pound your way through every crescendo. A-Band allows you to break out the old Guitar Hero and Rock Band drums to test your metal while learning new songs.


Two unique features of A-Band are the Record Studio and School of Rock modes. With Record Studio you can create your own beats and save them to show off later. School of Rock, which is the best feature in my opinion, teaches you how to drum properly with a balanced learning curve for the beginner drummer. The art style of A-Band is reminiscent of a Sin City comic. The black and white noir look plays well with the bits of color to really make notes and stages pop.


Band List:

10 Year Vamp, Red Velvet Line, The Rebels, Noiseaux, Helladonna, Just Dave, Bedford, Faye Gatley, The Jaywalker, Imari Tones, Sananda, and Los Rockers

If the passion to rock still beats deep within your soul then A-Band may be your answer. Flammable Games efforts can be purchased now on the Xbox Live Indie Market for only 240 Microsoft Points. Check out their website for more information including news and band information.
