Whether you know him as the front man for the band Nine Inch Nails or from his Oscar-and-Golden-Globe-winning music for films like "The Social Network" and "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," this much you know for sure: Trent Reznor's sound is unforgettable.
And now Reznor is bringing his immense musical chops and memorable compositions to the forthcoming video game "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2," reports USA Today.
Reznor, a fan of the "Call of Duty" games, partnered with development studio Treyarch to create the theme song for the game.
"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," Reznor told USA Today.
He said he has composed an "aggressively sounding" theme song to go along with the game's intense story line, which revolves around a massive global conflict and a futuristic Cold War between the United States and China.
This is not Reznor's first time creating music for a video game. He helped compose the sound for id Software's game "Quake" and worked on the music for "Doom 3."
"Black Ops 2" is due to launch Nov. 13. Check out the brand new trailer below.
