I always thought Kratos could use some kick-ass heavy metal songs to augment his brutal bashfests.
First up, we've heard that Trivium has recorded an exclusive song for God of War III , which was revealed by the band's guitarist and vocalist Matt Heafy during a radio interview. On top of that, we've just learned that Dream Theater will also be jumping on board ; this announcement coming from drummer Mike Portnoy, who said on the band's blog: "…we will then enter the studio right after New Year's to write and record a brand new instrumental track for inclusion in the upcoming God of War 3 soundtrack." Both songs in question are originals and we certainly like Sony's decision to inflame our battle desire with hard-hitting metal tracks. I loved the idea and concept of Brutal Legend but the RTS elements killed it for me; hence, I now look forward to enjoying my metal while tearing baddies apart in GoWIII. Of course, to each his own, but I just feel metal fits this particular game style particularly well, and I doubt many will disagree.
It sounds like the music in this game is going to rule almost as much as the gameplay and graphics. What won't be stellar in this upcoming action extravaganza?
