Tyler Bates had this to say about the huge collaboration of visual and audio art:
“This soundtrack and motion-comic series was made by fans of comics, for fans of comics and music. 'Dark Nights: Death Metal’ is next-level storytelling by two incredibly talented artists in Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo. The visual aspect of this comic is entirely compelling, and resonates throughout each song on the soundtrack."
