Mastodon’s Brann Dailor also contributed to the project with “Red Death” along with Deftones frontman Chino Moreno contributing “Brief Exchange.” Sleigh Bells vocalist Alexis Krauss then released the song “War Cry,” with “Fact Check” by The Fever 333’s Jason Aalon Butler and “The Calling” featuring In This Moment’s Maria Brink and Chris Howorth are also part of the project. The songs are helmed by producer Mike Elizondo and Marilyn Manson’s guitarist and composer Tyler Bates.

The tracks are part of Dark Nights: Metal Deluxe Edition, which is based around a six-part graphic novel created by writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo as part of the DC Universe. Dark Nights: Metal Deluxe Edition is currently available at comic book retailers and digital outlets

    What I’m wondering is who backed him up on this track.
    It reminds me of *Spiderbite* and other tracks from DT Vols 1&2…
