During Gamescom 2022, Matt Heafy shares his thoughts about video games, “Metal: Hellsinger” video game, and streaming on Twitch:
“We were always a Nintendo family. Beat Mario 1 first… Mario 1, 2, 3… but Super Nintendo and N64 were my big eras. Super Mario World was huge, I loved Donkey Kong. I remember when Donkey Kong Country had the making-of VHS we taped it off TV and I’d watch it all the time, I was so into the making-of.
Mario 64 is one of the greatest games of all time, Goldeneye is arguably one of the FPS’ of all time. I was the jerk who’d always pick Oddjob.”
“The soundtrack is 90 minutes of Brazilian music – pagode, samba, bossa nova. I wrote a song where I’m singing in Portuguese. I gave them one metal song… they said ‘no metal’… it sounds exactly like Sepultura and it’s freaking awesome. The rest is chill, lo-fi Brazilian music.”
Matt Heafy reveals his inspiration for the video games:
“It was so inspirational that I actually hit them up and said, ‘I know the game is done, I know the soundtrack is done, but I wanna re-record the screaming because I can do them better now.’ They’re like, ‘No, they’re ready great.’ But I did it, sent it over in one take and they were like, ‘Okay, we’ll mix this in.’”
He also talked with PCGamesN about games:
“Since I was nine years old I have been saying I would love to do Doom someday. We will have to see, but hopefully they see this and go ‘let’s get this guy in.’”
