System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian will provide music for the upcoming rhythm-based first-person shooter Metal: Hellsinger.
The new track, titled No Tomorrow, features the singer’s instantly recognisable voice over hard-hitting guitars and drums, and sounds similar to his work in metal band System of a Down (though the track doesn’t feature any other band member).
Metal: Hellsinger. is being developed by The Outsiders, a team lead by FPS veteran David Goldfarb, who served as the game director on Payday 2 and lead designer on Battlefield 3 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
Tankian joins the long list of metal singers providing music for the game including Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), Matt Heafy (Trivium), and Randy Blythe (Lamb of God).
“Strike terror into the hearts of demons and devils as you fight your way through eight Hells,” reads the description on the game’s Steam page.
“Metal: Hellsinger is a rhythm FPS, brimming with diabolical enemies, powerful weapons, and metal music. Set out on an infernal journey in order to achieve the purest of goals: vengeance.”
Each of the game’s stages will feature a different track that the player must kill enemies in time to. The music will dynamically change based on the intensity of the action, from quiet background noise to loud, bombastic metal.
