We gotta kick this off with a very special thank you to WoS Loyal Reader Lucas who told us about this one surfacing and we’re excited for two reasons… One: it’s a new Rise Against song and Two: it’s from the DC Comics Dark Nights Death Metal Soundtrack. Yes, I’m a Marvel fan, but this is one thing DC has done right since they got rid of the Bat Nipples…
Heavy musicians are involved throughout this 7-issue comic book series from DC (written by Scott Snyder, pencilled by Greg Capullo, inked by Jonathan Glapion, coloured by FCO Plascencia) including Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack as the voice of Batman in the visual graphic novel, drums for the OST are by Dave Lombardo with Zakk Wylde doing the guitar SFX! (insert “holy heck” quote from Robin here)
As for the new Rise Against song, it’s straight-up fast and furious punk rock awesomeness and sees the band return to some of their heavier/angrier roots. It’s an instant classic you’re going to want to play over and over again!
