Opeth e Dream Theater participan na Banda Sonora do videoxogo God Of War III

A través de Roadrunner Records sacarase un EP chamado God of War: Blood & Metal que estará composto por cancións feitas especialmente para o xogo para PlayStation 3 God of War III Ultimate Edition que sairá en Marzo do 2010. As bandas que participan serán Opeth, Dream Theater, Killswitch Engage, Trivium e Taking Down, e como dixen, compoñeran música exclusiva nunca antes sacada ó mercado!

Os que compren o xogo conseguirán un código exclusivo para baixar o EP así como incluso un documental sobre a historia de God Of War e máis extras.

Parece que estamos nos comenzos de novas formas de fusionar mercados de diferentes tipos de artes. E por outra parte, empézase a demostrar o incrible poder que ten a industria do videoxogo, que é capaz incluso de sobresalir por encima da cinematográfica en canto a resultados económicos nos últimos anos.

“I have played the previous God of War releases,” said Killswitch Engage vocalist Howard Jones. “To be a part of this game in any fashion is amazing! Let the rivers flow red with blood; there is vengeance to bestow! Bring me more new finishing blows to my enemies!"

“Music has always been an important part of videogames and can help bring titles to life,” said Stig Asmussen, God of War III Game Director. “Our goal is to make God of War III a special release in all areas and this just another way to offer fans and newcomers a worthwhile experience.”

“This is the first time in 24 years that we've written and recorded a song for anything other than one of our own albums, so we're up for the challenge and excited to have been asked,” said Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy about recording an exclusive instrumental track for the soundtrack.

“When we were initially asked to write an original song for the game, we were slightly perplexed since we’ve never actually written a track for something other than a Trivium record,” said Trivium, vocalist Matt Heafy. “But we answered the call as we are fans of the game. Writing the song was a fun experience. We started piecing riffs together on tour and then we really put time into the song when we got home and had the chance to go into the practice space to work on our ideas as a group. This new song captures a certain energy we've been trying to harness on record as well, as it will show all our fans worldwide where Trivium is heading musically in the future.”
