Grunge legend Lanegan fuels id's Rage

Mark Lanegan

Mark Lanegan, thoughtful

Mark Lanegan is a name familiar to music fans around the world. His band, Screaming Trees, helped define the Seattle grunge sound of the early 90s alongside Nirvana, Soundgarden and Mudhoney. Since then, he’s played with Queens of the Stone Age, a number of awesome collaborations, and his new band The Gutter Twins.

His music has a certain unique feel to it – and if you watched Untethered, the most recent video for id Software‘s post-apocalyptic racer-shooter, RAGE, you’d know what we’re talking about.

The music there in the background is Burning Jacob’s Ladder, by Mark Lanegan, and yes, it will be featured in the game itself. For a limited time, you can download the entire song – absolutely free – from the freshly-launched official website for RAGE.

Point your browser towards [surl=][/surl] and have a bit of an explore. As well as the song, there’s a nifty interactive panoramic that will give you all the information on gadgets, guns and in-game vehicles.

RAGE itself is shaping up to be something kinda awesome – a huge world to run around in, some intense first-person shooter action, crazy vehicle combat – and, of course, the amazing graphics powered by the brand new id Tech 5 engine.

An asteroid has impacted with Earth in the none-too-distant future, and the world as we know it has turned into a vast wasteland. You’ll get your chance to play on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC when RAGE launches around the world from September 13th.
