Progressive metal giants Dream Theater have confirmed that the group will record a brand new instrumental track exclusively for use in SCE Studios Santa Monica’s hotly anticipated God of War III.
News comes by way of the band’s official website, with drummer and background vocalist Michael Portnoy commenting:
“In an unexpected move, we will then enter the studio right after New Year’s to write and record a brand new instrumental track for inclusion on the upcoming Gods Of War 3 soundtrack. This will mark the first time in the band’s career we have written and recorded an exclusive track for an outside project. Roadrunner invited us to participate and we decided we were up for the challenge!”
Dream Theater shot to fame with their 1992 album Images and Words and have gone on to sell over eight million albums globally, with two million alone sold in the United States.
God of War III is due out exclusively on PlayStation 3 in March 2010.
