To mark the 300th issue of Heavy Metal Magazine, Stern Pinball and Incendium have announced the launch of the first official Heavy Metal pinball machine.

Founded in 2006, Incendium is a multi-faceted production company known for an array of animation, comic books, toys, and video games. Driven by their passion for myths, monsters, and metal, the brand embraces the 80s and 90s counterculture with a contemporary twist.

Dark Fantasy, Science Fiction, Erotica & Steampunk

Published six times a year, Heavy Metal is a high quality, glossy, full colour monthly which has been running in the US since April 1977, and inspired the 1981 animated movie of the same name. Published by Incendium, the Magazine is known primarily for its blend of dark fantasy and science fiction, erotica and steampunk comic strips. Heavy Metal is also recognised for its high quality artwork, with past contributions from internationally acclaimed artists such as HR Giger and Esteban Maroto.

Soundtrack & Original Recordings

The Heavy Metal soundtrack will feature original recordings from Sebastian Bach, and Brendon Small, in addition to iconic tracks from the Heavy Metal movie original soundtrack including Blue Oyster Cult, Cheap Trick and more.

So, with dark, immersive themes, top-drawer artwork and a magnificently metal soundtrack, Stern’s new Heavy Metal pinball machine should not disappoint.

Llexi Leon, CEO of Incendium comments. “Sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and metal collide in this first-ever pinball machine. This is our most ambitious Heavy Metal product yet.
