Heavy metal performed by legendary band Megadeth comes to Konami’s upcoming game NeverDead. Fans will be able to hear Megadeth’s track “Never Dead” on their 13th album, which is currently being recorded. Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.’s NeverDead is an action-adventure title and a brand new franchise for the company.
“The members of Megadeth are speed-metal music pioneers with a world renowned reputation for producing song catalogs with original and progressive lyrics,” said Shinji Hirano, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “The NeverDead soundtrack is an example of pure imagination and it fully captures the essence of our game. We’re proud to have such a distinctive band associated with our title.”
“‘Never Dead’ was written specifically for the game, and the song’s lyrics and concept fit perfectly with its transcendental nature,” said Madelyn Scarpulla, Senior Vice President of Marketing & Creative Services for Roadrunner Records. “Megadeth and Roadrunner are both looking forward to the mutually beneficial marketing partnership we have established with KONAMI with the launch of NeverDead and Megadeth’s new album coming this fall.”
Konami’s NeverDead is a third-person action game set in the future and pits the player against supernatural enemies within a post-apocalyptic metropolis. The player assumes the role of Bryce, a demonic agent, who is assisted by a female companion named Arcadia. Together, the duo must combat a demonic plague that has ravaged the populace. NeverDead will be available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year.
