FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

JAMIE CHRISTOPHERSON COMPOSES SOUNDTRACK AND SCORE FOR
METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE

Featuring Vocals By Artists Including John Bush, Jimmy Gnecco, Tyson Yen, Free Dominguez, Jason Miller, Kit Walters, Graeme Cornies
With Contributions by Logan Mader, Maniac Agenda, and Ferry Corsten

All-Star Band to Perform Songs from the Soundtrack
at Launch Party – February 18th

Soundtrack and Score Albums To Be Released - February 19th

(February 18, 2013 -- Los Angeles, CA) Award-winning film, TV and video game composer Jamie Christopherson (Lost Planet 1 & 2, Spiderman: Web of Shadows) was commissioned by PlatinumGames to write both the score and songs for Konami’s upcoming action title developed by Kojima Productions and PlatinumGames Inc., METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE. Albums of both will be available on February 19th, the same day that the METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE video game will be released. Featuring extremely fast hardcore electronic/heavy metal music, the soundtrack in METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE marks a clear departure from the music of the previous Metal Gear games.

Christopherson said, "With action-packed gameplay this intense, we knew that the music for METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE had to be something really special and different from previous Metal Gear Solid games. In order to accomplish this, we decided early on to have hardcore electronic/metal songs with vocals that would lyrically and sonically mirror the game storyline during boss battles. Pre-existing licensed songs or traditional orchestral score wouldn't suffice for these sections; the music had to be something fresh and impactful."

To achieve the desired result, Christopherson enlisted 5 time gold record artist/producer Logan Mader (ex Machine Head and Soulfly) to co-write and co-produce a portion of the songs from the soundtrack. Mader also produced live drum recordings and many of the vocal sessions for the songs.

The soundtrack features many talented recording artists from across the globe, such as electronic remixer Maniac Agenda and DJ sensation Ferry Corsten. Well-known vocalists including John Bush (Armored Saint/Anthrax), Tyson Yen (State Line Empire/Drist), Jason Miller (Godhead), Graeme Cronies, Kit Walters, Free Dominguez (Kidneythieves) and Jimmy Gnecco (Ours) were chosen to match specific bosses based on the quality of their voices.

To celebrate the release of METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE, Konami will be hosting an autograph signing and concert. Producers Korekado-san and Inaba-san will be available to sign autographs at GameStop at Universal City Walk (1000 Universal Studios Blvd) from 8-10PM on February 18th.

The first 150 fans to attend the signing will also be invited to an accompanying launch party at the Hard Rock Café across from GameStop, directly following the signing. Christopherson and Mader have assembled an all-star band to perform the original songs from the game, including Howard Jones (Killswitch Engage), Nita Strauss (Consume the Fire) and many of the performers from the game (including Bush, Yen, and Dominguez).

Christopherson described, "I had a blast working with PlatinumGames and all of the wonderful artists on METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE. The culminating result is something I'm really proud of and definitely puts the 'metal' in Metal Gear series."

METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE Score Tracks, on Sumthing Else, will be available on February 19th. Also available on that date is the METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE Official Soundtrack will be available as part of the METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE Collector’s Edition, from Konami.

METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE will be available on February 19, 2013 for the PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360® at major retail stores nationwide. For more information visit www.metalgearsolid.com/rising.

ABOUT METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance takes the renowned METAL GEAR franchise into exciting new territory by focusing on delivering an all-new action experience unlike anything that has come before.. Combining world-class development teams at Kojima Productions and PlatinumGames, MGR:R brings two of the world's most respected teams together with a common goal of providing players with a fresh synergetic experience that combines the best elements of pure action and epic storytelling, all within the expansive MG universe. The game introduces Raiden as the central character; a child soldier transformed into a half-man, half-machine cyborg ninja, equipped with a high-frequency katana blade and a soul fueled by revenge.

In the near future, cyborg technology has become commonplace throughout society. Three years have passed since the collapse of the Patriots system that had been secretly controlling the global power balance from the shadows. However, peace remains elusive. The dissemination of cybernetic technology has triggered instability and conflict as those who control the trade gain increasing power. Furthermore, large 'Private Military Companies', or PMC's, that had been supported and controlled by the Patriots have collapsed, spawning countless rogue entities with origins to larger criminal organizations. These renegade PMCs employing cyborg technology have become increasingly more disruptive shifting policy and power at will. As a member of the peace-keeping PMC 'Maverick Security', Raiden lives by the mantra of protecting and saving lives. But as the world plunges further into asymmetric warfare, the only path that leads him forward is rooted in resolving his past, and carving through anything that stands in his way.
