Alan Wake 2's Old Gods of Asgard is in the top 10

Alan Wake 2 is another proof of video games being quite an important part of real life. The game's popularity has an impact beyond the world of video games, as proven by the fact that Old Gods of Asgard has positioned itself among the top 10 worldwide on iTunes with the album Rebirth.

A fictional band with real music

If you are familiar with the Alan Wake franchise, this may not surprise you as Old Gods of Asgard is a fictional band that first appeared in the original Alan Wake from 2010. Since then, the band has been a staple in all games created by Remedy, but it reached its peak of popularity with its performance of the song "Herald of Darkness" during The Game Awards 2023.

Alan Wake 2 didn't get the Game of the Year award but it did snag the Best Art Direction, Best Narrative, and Best Game Direction awards from Baldur's Gate III. One of the best moments in the ceremony was the performance of the Finnish band that plays Old Gods of Asgard, called Poets of the Fall. As a rather unexpected side effect of that performance, the popularity of Old Gods of Asgard skyrocketed.



No matter if you have joined the best-selling author in his latest adventure or not, Alan Wake 2's music is good enough to climb to the top of the global music boards. Of course, the sequel to Alan Wake has much more to offer as it delivers one of the best survival horror experiences in the genre. The game received its latest update yesterday, which has added the eagerly expected New Game Plus mode with an alternative narrative and new video content.
