Roadrunner Records has announced they will release a digital EP soundtrack for the PlayStation 3 video game "God of War III." The EP, titled "God of War: Blood & Metal," will be released in March as a part of the God of War III Ultimate Edition, and will feature five exclusive unreleased songs from Killswitch Engage, Dream Theater, Trivium, Opeth, and Taking Dawn. A voucher code will be included with the game for fans to download the EP.

“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!"

I had the same thought. I'm all for a new Opeth track, but Killswitch Engage doesn't seem to mesh with God of War. I guess if you really want to look too far into it you could maybe possibly make a connection between Killswitch whining about love like angsty teenage girls and Kratos' back story about his family, but it's a stretch.

^yeah, Opeth fits, maybe even Dream Theatre, if it was done right, and I'm by no stretch a DT fan.

But Trivium? Even the Trivium fans I know dont think it fits.

and Taking Dawn is just pure butt-rock.

they should have Behemoth on this list.

Its because behemoth is not on road runner records. All of the artist are on RR. They are trying to push those artist to the public a bit more I guess

^I wasnt thinking in terms of the record label. I just want behemoth and God of War associated somehow. I dont care if it's legally not possible lol
