Caution: loud music.

Here's a rather interesting collaboration between the metal band Last Chance to Reason and game developer Tom Vine. Level 2 is both the name of an upcoming album and videogame due out in 2010, and in the game players get to 'blast through' tribute sections loosely inspired by classic arcade releases such as R-Type, Contra, and Super Metroid while the music is blaring in the background.

Tom Vine's last two releases, Paroxysm (a Prince of Persia-type platformer) and Plasma Warrior (shades of Metroid) have been decent efforts, so there is a bit of expectation for the Level 2 game to do rather well when it is released later this year. (source)
