Second only to possibly The Weeknd, Trent Reznor had a dominating presence in music this week, streaming both How to Destroy Angels’ _An Omen EP and promising new music from Nine Inch Nails. And now Reznor continues that momentum with the release of his song for the Call of Duty: Black Ops II. As promised, the titular theme is definitely “aggressively sounding”, with a mix of menacing guitar and bass and pounding drums leading the charge, but with lighter, more delicate piano flourishes adding a more operatic spin. Either way, it’s the perfect music to listen to while blowing up your enemies with a helicopter. Check it out below (via Antiquiet).
Call of Duty: Black Ops II hits stores November 13th. The game’s 40-song soundtrack will be released separately via iTunes the same day.
