NHL 23, the latest professional hockey video game from EA Sports (developed by EA Vancouver) features a soundtrack that is absolutely dominated by rock and metal artists, including Ghost, Korn, Gojira and a lot, lot more.
The cover stars Anaheim Ducks center Trevor Zegras and Canadian National Team forward and Olympic silver medalist Sarah Nurse, both exciting young stars in hockey.
What we’re most excited for, however, is our own young stars. There’s plenty of ascending newer artists (new over the last decade or so) featured among some of the powerhouse veterans. It’s a nice balance that has become more commonplace in recent years as rock and metal communities start to identify who will be our new perennial festival headliners a decade and more from now.
“In a sports gaming world that loves to mix music genres, only one soundtrack has remained proud to be an exclusive celebration of international rock. And with NHL 23, the most unapologetically rock soundtrack in video game history takes the ice with 42 new tracks of skill, attitude, and focused aggression like never before,” reads part of a statement on EA’s webpage detailing the soundtrack.
Thanks for flying the flag for us, NHL series video games!
