Metal stars set to soundtrack new videogame

The worlds of metal and gaming are to join forces once again with the forthcoming release of the platform adventure game, Karmaflow: The Rock Opera Videogame.

Arch Enemy’s vocalist Alissa White-Gluz, Cradle of Filth’s Dani Filth, Simone Simons of Epica and Marc Hudson of Dragonforce are all set to lend their musical and vocal talents to the game that sees the story being told through the use of rock and metal music.

The orchestral score is performed by the Metropole Orkest – purportedly the world’s largest pop and jazz orchestra. Members of Textures and Within Temptation are also involved in the game, which sees the style of music alter and change depending on the gamer’s style of play.

An album version of the game’s score will be released in October this year, with the game itself due to follow for PC and Mac in early 2015.

The game has been developed by students at the Utrecht University Of Arts in the Netherlands, and you can watch the trailer for it below:
