“We are super excited and honored to be part of the Dark Nights: Death Metal Soundtrack! We’ve all been fans of DC Comics and the Batman universe since we were kids, so it really means a lot for us to be able to add something to that world,” says the band’s drummer, Brann Dailor

The visual aspect of this comic is entirely compelling, and resonates throughout each song on the soundtrack.”
The soundtrack is available to pre-order now. Fans will also be able to grab some super snazzy vinyl variants with Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman covers, limited edition character trading cards, and a whole lot more. Catch all the options here and the official tracklisting.
