The next project for Trent Reznor isn’t for a film soundtrack, but for a video game. He composed the theme song for the upcoming ‘Call Of Duty: Black Ops II‘ described as an “aggressively sounding” piece of guitar, bass and drums-based rock. Well of course it is.
The Academy Award winner is no stranger to game collaborations, having worked on Quake and Doom 3. It was a natural fit as he told USA Today that “I have been wildly enthused about gaming since I was younger,” he explained, “and a career path I chose not to go down but did really consider was getting into programming and game design.” More importantly, when are we getting new Nine Inch Nails? “Right now, it’s in its gestation period,” he said. So, never?
COD: Black Ops II will be released November 13, 2012.
