If you’re among the legions of video game fanatics who purchased developer Treyarch’s Call Of Duty: Black Ops (Activision Publishing, Inc.) last week, you may be surprised to learn that the pounding drum beat you’re hearing as you fight in secret ops across the globe was provided by QUEENSRYCHE drummer Scott Rockenfield! The most anticipated video game in history, Call Of Duty: Black Ops set a new five-day sales record with an estimated take of approximately $650 million worldwide!!
“Being involved with Activision and Treyarch Studios in the production of the Call of Duty: Black Ops soundtrack was an absolutely amazing experience,” states Rockenfield, who wrote and performed live drum tracks for the game, “From the graphics to the soundtrack to the overall playing experience, this game is beyond description… it’s no wonder people can’t wait to get their hands on it.”
