Roadrunner Records will release a digital EP soundtrack for the upcoming God of War 3 game titled "God of War: Blood & Metal." The EP will be released in March as a part of the God of War 3 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.
Front man Mikael Akerfeldt of Opeth has issued the following update about recording the song "The Throat of Winter" for the video game:
"I just finished and approved the mastering of a new song I wrote called ‘The throat of Winter’. I wrote it for that game, ‘God of war’ that we're supposed to be included in, or however that works. Is it a digital album? I don't know how that shit works, but it's done anyways. Hell, I'm still with my turntables (got 3 of them) and right now I'm playing a Aussie original of ‘High voltage’ by AC/DC.
"Song is very odd, it's good I think, or for my taste it is, but even I can understand it's very....odd! Produced and recorded it from scratch and I'm happy with the sound if I may say so myself. Fred laid down a killer acoustic solo and Per laid down an amazing twiddly tweet moog solo. It's not a very metal song, I'm saving up for that..later.....yet it's got a metal ‘mentality’, or what I remember metal used to do to me. I can feel it, even though it's not a ‘metal’ song per definition. Anyways, if you hear it I hope you like it.
"Me and Fred went to Namm for a few days and it was fun fun FUN! Did some signing session and a Q&A for PRS guitars. My signature guitar looked and felt amazing! Loved the neck of it! It was only a prototype so some adjustments will be made, but overall I'm fucking blown away by it. Fred liked it too very much and it seemed to attrack a lot of interest! The PRS people were real nice to us as always and I got to meet some nice people I hadn't met before. We might have had a few drinks too many but we had to do something to cope with the jetlag which was overwhelming. Looks like we might be going to the Frankfurt Musikmesse as well, right before those anniversary shows we're doing in March/April.
"OK, people...I'm off again. Even though we're off the road I feel busier than ever. I'm hyper and I've got a billion projects in the air it feels like.... Hope you're all good."
