Korn record original song for Haze

October 23rd, 2007

Korn record original track for Haze.

Ubisoft today announced a strange collaboration with heavy rock/metal band Korn. Korn have recorded an original song for the upcoming Haze, apparently inspired by the game - though I imagine a lump of cash helped get those creative juices flowing a little more than the game did. The song titled “Haze” will hit the radio in November, coinciding with the launch of the game, and will be available for download from online music stores.

Apparently, Korn’s singer Jonathan Davis loves video games:

Gaming for me is a religion and Haze is the sh*t! […] I had to come up with a track that can hit up that kind of rush I get from the game and I think we really rocked it!!

Hopefully the next time Ubisoft get a band to make them a tune for a video game, they can find someone who has released some decent material since…oh, the turn of the century?
