Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor writes ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’ theme

Nine Inch Nails’  Trent Reznor has been working on a new soundtrack project, not for a film, but for the world’s bestselling video game ”ËœCall of Duty: Black Ops II’.

Reznor composed the game’s theme song, which he describes as an “aggressively sounding” piece of guitar, bass and drums-based rock.

Reznor has previously collaborated with video game developers providing material for both the ”ËœQuake’ and ”ËœDoom 3′ titles in addition he has provided the score for both ”ËœThe Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ and ”ËœThe Social Network’ for which he won an Academy Award.

Reznor, a long term fan of the Activision created Call Of Duty series told USA TodayI have always looked to that franchise as the cutting edge of what seemingly unlimited budgets and full-on not cutting any corners can do in the current day and age,”

This latest installment in the genre dominating franchise takes place in the near future, propelling players into a Cold War-like global conflict inspired by today’s headlines.

Reznor continued sating “There is a lot of reservation and angst and sense of loss and regret and anger bubbling under the surface,” Reznor said of the dark undertones found in the soundtrack. “So it didn’t make sense to have a gung ho patriotic feeling kind of theme song. It has to feel weighty.”

‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’ will be released across all platforms on the 13th November 2012

Phil Newall is from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
