Quebec's Metal Scene Lends Its Voices To Video Game Creatures

by Rainier on Aug. 10, 2020 @ 11:42 a.m. PDT

Specialized in the creation of voices for monsters, zombies, extraterrestrials, etc., The Monster Factory promotes Quebec vocal talent in video game and film industries, offering a unique expertise in creating sounds for multiple types of virtual creatures.

Created in 2018 by S├ębastien Croteau, Corinne Cardinal and Jeffrey Mac Dermott, The Monster Factory launches its website today. From now on, video game and film companies will be able to hear our members' voices, learn about the productions they have worked on and contact them directly.

Since 2005, our members have taken part in the audio creation and conception of hundreds of creatures. Their voices have been heard by millions of people around the world in productions such as:

  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider (Eidos)
  • Far Cry 5 (Ubisoft)
  • Rainbow Six Siege: Outbreak (Ubisoft)
  • Resident Evil 7 (Capcom)
  • Thief (Eidos)
  • Prince of Persia (Ubisoft)
  • Assassin's Creed (Ubisoft)

The Factory's greatest weapon? Female and male death metal singers.

Metal singers have the unique ability to produce unreal and organic sounds without having to resort to computer modifications. In addition to this, their training permits them to produce all kinds of guttural sounds without straining their voices. They are thus invaluable assets when recording this type of voice in the studio.

"In a world where video game and film companies strive to reach unparalleled levels of realism, the quality of the sounds we produce is still unmatched. Our talent pool, comprised of women and men, offers a sonic and textural diversity for all types of projects. " - Corinne Cardinal

To showcase what they are able to do with their voices, the members of the Factory shot their first video, entitled " Horde. " Simulating a zombie attack, this short film will blow your ears off.
