Forget press releases, the new coolest way to announce your upcoming game is through the use of some lanky-haired Nordic Death Metal rockers who don’t like video games. The pioneers of this unique marketing strategy are THQ, who have employed the use of the band Opeth to reveal their new handheld title.

On the news section of their official site, Opeth have posted the following revelations: “We may not like playing video games all that much but we do like it when our music is featured on them! Makes us a bit proud even when it’s a game as big as Saints Row for the PSP and even prouder when the nice developer people show excellent taste by picking “The Lotus Eater” for it. So if you love playing video games: the game is expected to hit the streets around March 2010.”

Next week.. In Flames announces GTA5..
