Megadeth to Score Video Game Soundtrack

Megadeth are currently recording an original soundtrack for Konami Digital Entertainment’s upcoming third-person action-adventure game NeverDead. The song “Never Dead” will also appear on the thrash metal legends’ 13th studio album, which is currently in the works.

Konami President Shinji Hirano explained, “The members of Megadeth are speed-metal music pioneers with a world renowned reputation for producing song catalogs with original and progressive lyrics. 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.”

Konami tentatively plans to release NeverDead later this year for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. Check out the game’s official E3 2011 trailer below. A clip of Megadeth’s new song “Never Dead” appears around the 1:38 mark.
