Trent Reznor Composes New ‘Call of Duty’ Music (VIDEO)July 17th, 2012 | Posted by in In The Know | Music
Nine Inch Nails frontman, Trent Reznor, has created the theme song for the video game ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’ out Nov.13.
The Oscar-winning composer for The Social Network is no stranger to video games having worked on Quake and Doom 3 and tells USA Today:
“I have been wildly enthused about gaming since I was younger… and a career path I chose not to go down but did really consider was getting into programming and game design.”
Game design’s loss was music’s gain, but life has come full circle for Reznor who raves about the Call of Duty franchise saying:
“I 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.”
