The DC Comics series Dark Nights: Death Metal has done a great job of tapping into the hard rock and metal world over the past year and the latest installment comes in the form of a new Mastodon banger titled "Forged by Neron."
The song is actually the opening track and lead single from a new Dark Nights: Death Metal soundtrack that's set to arrive digitally on June 18 and physically on July 16 via Loma Vista Recordings.
The track name-checks the demon lord of Hell who appears as a key figure throughout the comic series. “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 Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor.
