Avenged Sevenfold Perform ‘Carry On’ as Characters in ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’
Video game fans have been anxiously awaiting the release of ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II,’ which hits shelves tomorrow (Nov. 13). It was previously announced that Avenged Sevenfold‘s song ‘Carry On‘ would be part of the game’s soundtrack, but now we’ve learned the band makes an appearance in the game, as well.
If you stick around until the end of the credits, a virtual A7X performs ‘Carry On.’ In addition to the band, characters from the game join in as well. A nervous Raul Menendez plays guitar, and Sergeant Frank Woods is behind the drum kit.
This is not Avenged Sevenfold’s first association with the ‘Call of Duty’ games. 2011’s ‘Call of the Dead’ expansion pack included their song ‘Not Ready to Die.’
The musical score for ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’ was created by Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor. In addition to coming with the physical edition of the game, the 40 plus song soundtrack will also get a separate release tomorrow (Nov. 13).
The ‘Call of Duty’ games are massively popular. The first ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops’ game was the largest ever entertainment launch, bringing in a staggering $650 million within five days of its release. That record was broken by ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III.’ Could ‘Black Ops II’ be the biggest seller yet? We’ll find out beginning tomorrow.
