Sweden's Opeth has issued the following announcement about their song "The Lotus Eater" appearing on an upcoming entry in the "Saints Row" video game series:

"We may not like playing video games all that much but we do like it when our music is featured on them! Makes us a bit proud even when it's a game as big as Saints Row for the PSP and even prouder when the nice developer people show excellent taste by picking 'The Lotus Eater' for it. So if you love playing video games: the game is expected to hit the streets around March 2010."

Yeah, I actually enjoyed there Rock in Saints Row 2. I thought it was funny how that game was what got me into Black Dahlia Murder.

?!?!?!

LOL

when I clicked the link my expectation was the Opeth were going to have rendered versions of themselves playing a song in the game, like in a cut scene at club in the game...Would have been great.

Anything that steers more to the cult of Opeth works for me.
