Trent Reznor to Score Black Ops 2’s Opening Theme

Activision has hired Trent Reznor (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) to pen Black Ops II’s opening theme song.

This bit was revealed by USA Today, where it states that Reznor theme song has an “aggressively sounding” piece of guitar, bass and drums-based rock.

In addition to Reznor, well-known videogame composer Jack Wall (Mass Effect 2) is set to compose the rest of the game’s music.

Reznor working on games is nothing new as he has worked with id Software before on Quake and DOOM 3. 

So, what sort of platitudes does Reznor have for Call of Duty?

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.

I have to agree with you there, Trent.

Black Ops II is set for release on November for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
