A new Death Stranding trailer dropped today, bringing with it a release date confirmation. Death Stranding is scheduled to drop on November 8, 2019 for PlayStation 4 with pre-orders available now. During the trailer, music played in the background to further hype up the action being shown.
While the song and artist were revealed almost two minutes into the trailer, it’s also easily missed as you’re soaking in the latest Death Stranding content. To help, we’ve put together a quick guide answering what the song is in the release trailer for Death Stranding!
What is the Song in the Release Trailer for Death Stranding?
Starting around the 1 minute 27 second mark, the song playing in the background of the Death Stranding release date trailer is shown. The song name is “Path” as performed by the band Apocalyptica. The song comes from their “Cult” album which released back in 2000. What’s interesting is the album cover art seems to mirror some of the themes shown in Death Stranding, with a skull worn away by the sands of time.
You can listen to the song in full, separate from the Death Stranding trailer, by purchasing their Cult album, finding it on streaming services such as Spotify, or by finding it as a standalone track on YouTube. Overall, we feel “Path” really enhances the Death Stranding release date trailer overall.
The ominous cellos that build and almost communicate with one another in certain parts makes for a powerful viewing and listening experience.
