Serj Tankian, the frontman for System of a Down, is producing music for a new rhythm-based first-person shooter called Metal:Hellsinger. The new track which is titled No Tomorrow, features a similar sound to System of a Down but does not feature any of the other band members.
Serj’s undeniably recognisable voice can be picked up instantly in No Tomorrow accompanied by riffing guitars and smashing drums. Metal: Hellsinger is currently being developed by The Outsiders, with David Goldfarb (Payday 2, Battlefield 3, and Battlefield: Bad Company 2) as the team lead.
Tankian is the latest to join Metal: Hellsinger with other venerated metal names including Alissa White-Gluz from Arch Enemy, Matt Heafy from Trivium, and Randy Blythe from Lamb of God. The official Steam page description reads:
“Strike terror into the hearts of demons and devils as you fight your way through eight Hells.
Metal: Hellsinger is a rhythm FPS, brimming with diabolical enemies, powerful weapons, and metal music. Set out on an infernal journey in order to achieve the purest of goals: vengeance.
Part human, part demon, and obsessed with vengeance. Become The Unknown, and fight through the fiercest domains of Hell. Destroy the demon hordes and their leaders to set yourself up for an epic showdown with The Red Judge herself.”
The rhythm-based shooter will offer various stages for players to tackle with each stage offering a track for players to shoot enemies in time to. The music itself will change dynamically according to the intensity of the action on-screen, and will range from quieter background music to hard-hitting metal.
Metal: Hellsinger was originally scheduled to launch last year for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S, but was delayed so that the title could launch on all three platforms at the same time. There is no exact release date as yet but is set to launch this year.
