Hampshire – June 24, 2010
“Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer”, the highly-praised expansion to the online role-playing game “Age of Conan”, inspired the group Linkin Purpz to write their song “Heads will Roll”. The band is offering the five-minute long metal piece as a free download on the game’s website at http://community.ageofconan.com. Those who would like to support the artists can also purchase the title for €0.60 at http://trax4free.de/LinkinPurpz/. “Heads will Roll” is about a bloody journey from West to East, which is also in store for players of the “Rise of the Godslayer” expansion if they want to explore the sweeping territories in the Kingdom of Khitai.
Linkin Purpz was founded in 2008 by the musician and “Age of Conan“ fan, Thorsten Schwalb. The band name can be traced back to the gamer slang expression “linking purples“: Upon finding valuable purple items, MMO players drag the items into the chat window, where a link appears for other players so that they can look at the find – this process is referred to as “linking purples“.
More information on the expansion pack and on the main game is available at www.riseofthegodslayer.com.
