Metal's elite vocalists contribute to 'Metal: Hellsinger' video game
Video game publishers Funcom along with developers The Outsiders have launched a new first person shooter that incorporates rhythm into the gameplay experience. 'Metal: Hellsinger' challenges shooters to target "demons and devils" while traversing eight rungs of hell.

To ensure the music was given the proper focus, 'Metal: Hellsinger' tapped Alissa White-Gluz of Arch Enemy, Björn "Speed" Strid of Soilwork, Mikael Stanne of Dark Tranquility, Tatiana Shmailyuk of Jinjer, Matt Heafy of Trivium, James Dorton of Black Crown Initiate, Dennis Lyxén of Refused, and Randy Blythe of Lamb of God to voice oringial tracks for the game.
The most recent trailer features gameplay footage, an introduction from frontman Matt Heafy, and a snippet of Randy Blythe's track, "Acheron".
