Horror metalcore icons Ice Nine Kills dropped their festive track “Merry Axe-Mas” last holiday season and the band are giving fans a new Christmas present in 2019 with a video game inspired by the song.
The game is free to play and features a killer-looking Santa with some very simple controls that anyone could hop on.
The game features a lot of the same visuals used in the song’s music video so it should look very familiar to seasoned fans of the band.
The music video was inspired by 1984 slasher flick Silent Night, Deadly Night.
In case you haven’t heard “Merry Axe-Mas” before, feel free to check out the song in the player below.
The retro-looking video game is completely free to play and can be played on both desktop and mobile devices. Head here to test your skills out and play the game.
The band are currently scheduled to open a 2020 tour with Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach and I Prevail. Tickets can be purchased here and you can see all of the dates below.
