Ice Nine Kills Presents: ‘Merry Axe-Mas’ – The Video Game

The band Ice Nine Kills bridges the gap between metal and horror. They even based their chart-topping 2018 release, The Silver Scream, on classic horror films. The band recently released a brand new video game – if you can believe it – called Merry Axe-Mas, which is based on the classic Christmas slasher, Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984). Psst… be sure to check out our Silent Night, Deadly Night 35th anniversary retrospective here.

What’s this game all about, you axe? Er… ask? Read on for all the details!

From The Merry Axe-Mas Press Release

Horror-inspired theatrical metal outfit ICE NINE KILLS continue to spread their captivating brand of terror throughout the ‘horror-day’ season as they gift fans with a free, online +/or mobile multi-level video game called Merry Axe-Mas, which was developed by Mungo Creative Group. Inspired by the ’80s-themed music video for their single, “Merry Axe-Mas” (featured on THE SILVER SCREAM (2018) and THE SILVER SCREAM: FINAL CUT (2020)), the game features three gruesome levels based on the storyline of the 1984 controversial slasher film Silent Night, Deadly Night, one of vocalist SPENCER CHARNAS’ all-time favorite horror films.

Along with the game, ICE NINE KILLS have recorded exclusive messages and specials deals for their dedicated fans to receive as they join Saint Nick through each level– whether it’s jumping from chimney to chimney dropping sacks of decapitated heads in Santa’s Forgiveness (Level 1), attacking sled riders in Santa’s Forest (Level 2) or taking out carolers whack-a-mole style in Silence The Sinners (Level 3).

Kick ass! You can play Merry Axe-Mas here:
