The track also features YouTuber Taylor Davisas well as Tina Guo – who has worked on titles like Cyberpunk 2077 and the last Dunes movie.

Regarding the organization’s decision to launch their label with a metal song, G2 Esports founder Carlos ‘Ocelote’ Rodriguez said, “Epic power metal is my favorite genre, I don’t care how commercialized it is. It comes from the heart like everything we do.”
“Now we’re setting the stage to entertain everyone beyond competitive video games,” Rodriguez added.
