Trent Reznor composing theme music for Black Ops II

Trent Reznor is the composer being the theme music for Black Ops II, according to USA Today. "I have always looked to that franchise as the cutting edge of what seemingly unlimited budgets and full-on not cutting any corners can do in the current day and age," said the Nine Inch Nails frontman. "There is a lot of reservation and angst and sense of loss and regret and anger bubbling under the surface, so it didn't make sense to have a gung ho patriotic feeling kind of theme song. It has to feel weighty." Reznor's previous game credits include Quake and originally Doom 3 until he had to leave the project.
