He shoots, he scores! Sports fans glide into the hockey season with the thundering roar of hard rock as Electronic Arts today revealed the unforgettable songs that comprise the NHL 07 in-game soundtrack. Boasting the largest song list ever incorporated into an EA hockey game, the bands featured in NHL 07 hail from serious hockey towns such as MontrÃ©al, QuÃ©bec (Priestess, Mobile), Toronto, Ontario (Pilate), Minneapolis, Minnesota (Quiet Drive), Buffalo, New York (Cute is What We Aim For), and Stockholm, Sweden (The Hellacopters). NHL 07 is being developed for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, Xbox, PC-DVD and PSP.
â€œHockey is an amazingly visceral sport and we wanted the soundtrack to be every bit as powerful. We are really proud that the line-up of artists in the game are all true hockey fans from major hockey towns,â€ said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Music Marketing at EA. â€œComing from Montreal and being die-hard hockey fans all our lives, weâ€™re really glad to be a part of NHL 07,â€ said Mikey Heppner, lead vocals/guitar with Priestess. â€œLast season while watching the Montreal Canadiens on TV, we heard Talk To Her playing at the Bell Center before a face-off and we were amazed. Needless to say, weâ€™re thrilled to have our music in this game!â€
