Jesse Leach, typically known for his vocal talents on stage with Killswitch Engage, will be taking his talents to the video game world in a game being released in February of next year.
“It's incredible to see the sheer amount of work that goes into scoring a game,” writes Leach on an Instagram post on September 30.
The post features Leach grunting and growling, along with him explaining that this is the second time he's gotten to do this and judging by how much he enjoys it, it definitely won't be the last.
“As soon as I know the name of the game and when it's out, I'll let all you gamers know,” writes Leach.
Spent the afternoon with my severely talented friend Saunder Jurriaans doing sound effects for a killer video game! I've known Saunder since the late 1990s and since day one I thought he was a super great guy and an extraordinary musician. He has been in many bands, off the top of my head: Grüvis Malt, Tarantula AD, Lap Dog Of Satan and others. However Saunder and his musical Partner Danny Bensi now score movies and games (these dudes win awards)!They are so much fun to work with as they are intense and funny musical geniuses. So honored they call on me when they need grunts, groans, screams and dark whispering for a track. This is my second time doing this and I absolutely LOVE it! I'm going to have to pick this game up when it is released in February. As soon as I know the name of the game and when it's out I'll let all you gamers know! It's incredible to see the sheer amount of work that goes into scoring a game. I was baffled at how much time and how much care these guys put into what they do. They actually rented property out in the woods and hired a team of musicians to create authentic sounding battle drum tones for this game! Next time you are playing a game pay attention to the nosies and music being played. There are hard working amazing musicians that do this type of work. Such an honor and a pleasure to be able to get to do this! Stay tuned gamers!!! #VocalWork #SessionVocals #ProfessionalGrunter #Tribal #Viking #BehindTheScenes #Gamer #Friends #JesseLeach #SaunderJurriaans #DannyBensi #NextLevel #Honored #MindBlowing #GoodTimes #SoundEffects @theSaunz @dannybensi
Do you think you'd be able to identify Leach just by growls in the game? Let us know in the comments!
