MeshuggahGames

During our Wolfenstein Reddit AmA, MachineGames’ creative director Jens Matthies let it be known that fellow Swede and renown metal guitarist, Fredrik Thordendal, contributed music for the game. We had a chance to send questions to the legendary Meshuggah guitarist. Check out his answers below, and at the bottom of the page, you can download Thordendal’s in-game track, Herr Faust, below.

What made you interested in contributing music for Wolfenstein: The New Order?

Writing music for a movie or video game has always been on my “want to do list” so when Jens Matthies of MachineGames asked if I was interested —  the word yes came to mind. ;-)

Was seeing behind the scenes of a video game production different from how you had imagined it to be? If so, in what way?

Yes. I was surprised by how many people are working together on a project like this and how much planning, time and effort have to be spent to implement the simplest things – like a sound/a piece of music – into the game.

What is your creative process like?

Technically it’s different every time but I guess I spend a lot of time trying to listen/hear the music that I already have inside. Sometimes it can be easy but most of the time it’s really hard to make out what’s going on. Then I trying to figure out how to translate that to the musical instruments of my choice – being drums, electric bass, electric guitars, vocals. Hm, this sounds weird. ;-)

What do you love about music?

The places it can show us. To me music is nothing but magic.
