System of a Down vocalist Serj Tankian unveiled new song “No Tomorrow” in the gameplay trailer for Metal: Hellsingera new video game that will be released later this year on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
The song is a collaboration between Tankian and the game’s soundtrack composers, with the singer stating, “I’m thrilled to announce that a song I worked on with the game’s music composers will be part of Metal: Hellsinger, a new rhythm-based shooter coming to PC, PS5, and XBOX Series X|S later this year. I’m not a big fan of games, but this intense trailer made me want to play!”
David Goldfarb, creative director of game developer The Outsiders, added: “What can you even say! We have so many System of a Down fans in the studio, adding Serj Tankian to our already incredible roster of singers seems unreal. He completely killed the track and made it his own in a way only Serj could. We are so excited and can’t wait to see everyone play!
The game’s song joins a lineup that features vocals from Randy Blythe (Lamb of God), Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), Dennis Lyxzén (Refused), Matt Heafy (Trivium), Tatiana Shmailyuk (Jinjer) and more .
The video game itself is described as follows in a press release:
“In Metal: Hellsinger, you must shoot, rush and perform finishers in time to the beat of an original metal soundtrack. Do it successfully and feel the thrill of adaptive music intensify and your power surge. Armed with six heavy weapons, each with their own ultimate, tear through hell in a tale of vengeance against the devil himself, with award-winning actors Troy Baker and Jennifer Hale voicing the main characters.
“No Tomorrow” follows Serj Tankian’s solo EP Elasticitywhich arrived a year ago, as well as the first new System of a Down songs in 15 years (“Protect the Land” and “Genocidal Humanoidz”), which were released in late 2020.
