Check out this footage from Metallica's canned video game: Damage Inc.

Before Metallica got their own version of Guitar Hero, there was a completely different type of video game in the works for the metal band.

Damage Inc. was made as a "vehicular combat" game set in post-apocalyptic times, based on Mad Max and Twisted Metal.

A few years ago, concept art from a Black Rock Studio artist started showing up on the net from the 2005 game, and now there's been a release of gameplay -and it looks like it could've been pretty damn cool.

Check out the concept art above, and PtoPOnline's gameplay below...
