    Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. announced legendary heavy metal band Megadeth are recording a customized soundtrack for the company's forthcoming action-adventure franchise NeverDead. "Never Dead," the official song sharing KONAMI's video game title, will appear on Megadeth's 13th album, which the band is currently recording.

    "The members of Megadeth are speed-metal music pioneers with a world renowned reputation for producing song catalogs with original and progressive lyrics," said Shinji Hirano, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. "The NeverDead soundtrack is an example of pure imagination and it fully captures the essence of our game. We're proud to have such a distinctive band associated with our title."

    Megadeth have sold over 25 million albums worldwide, with five consecutive albums being certified Platinum or multi-Platinum in the United States and have garnered nine Grammy nominations under their belt.

    NeverDead, currently in production, is a third-person action game set in a futuristic world where humans are battling supernatural enemies across a dark post-apocalyptic metropolis. In the game, players will assume the role of a demonic hero agent named Bryce who, assisted by his female lead Arcadia, must undertake a series of missions to combat a demonic plague. NeverDead is expected to release later this year for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

    Are you psyched to hear a Megadeth song created specifically for NeverDead?
