Wolfenstein: The New Order Music by Meshuggah’s Fredrik Thordendal Available for Free Download
Today sees the release of Wolfenstein: The New Order, the latest chapter in the long-running first-person-shooter franchise. I haven’t played a new entry from this particular series in a llllloooonnngggg time, but I assume that news makes gamers excited? Regardless, here’s how it applies to metal: Meshuggah guitarist Fredrik Thordendal contributed a piece of music to the game… and you don’t even need to buy the game to hear it! BethBlog, which Metal Injection tells me “is the Wolfenstein game’s creator blog,” has released Thordendal’s track, “Herr Faust,” for free download. You can also just stream it below if you don’t wanna DL it for some reason.
In any case, the piece certainly sounds good n’ Meshuggahy. I can’t really imagine listening to it too many more times on its own — it’s just too repetitive — but I can see how it would fit into, and enhance the experience of, playing a video game. I look forward to offing Nazi scum while this plays on the soundtrack.
