This is the #MusicMonday I didn’t know I needed today – a heavy metal remix of the intro theme for Soul Blade, the precursor to the popular Soul Calibur fighting game franchise. If you like epic tunes with epic guitars and epic singing, check out this cover from LittleVMills!
Hi folks. It’s Monday, which means it’s time for more video game music! This week’s #MusicMonday, is the heavenly track “Will The Circle Be Unbroken”. I immediately fell in love with this song within the first hour of the game. I honestly thought to myself, if Heaven is a real place, this must be it, when I heard it for the first time. Over the weekend I decided to put my own twist on the choral/choir version of the piece, to try and capture the ethereal quality of the in game version. Be careful, as it might put you to sleep. In a good way!
It’s been a while since I’ve shared a Banjo Guy Ollie song – but this is one of my favorites, and considering an old Dreamcast Castlevania Demo has recently been found, it seems like a great time to share this classic.
Folks. You must all know by now how big of a fan I am of Skyrim, and the soundtrack is certainly no exception. What composer Jeremy Soule has achieved with the soundtrack is beyond astonishing. It still amazes me after all these years how still, so many people are tuning in to tracks such as this one, for relaxation purposes, to rekindle their memories of traversing the wondrous land, and to ultimately be transported into another world. Skyrim Atmospheres is the cream of the crop for background noise. Folding your laundry on a rainy Sunday, Skyrim Atmospheres it is!
#MusicMonday returns with this stealthy piece from MGS PW. One of my favorite Metal Gear games. It packs so much mystery and intrigue that I find it hard to ignore. I remember when I was playing the game, this music would kick in when in codec conversations with Miller. When you hear it you feel like you’re obtaining top-secret classified intel and who wouldn’t want that sweat to bear? I hope you enjoy the suspenseful undertones of this tactical espionage track as much as I do.
I’ve been playing Streets of Rage 2 in preparation for a guest spot on the Retro Spectives podcast, and while most of the music hasn’t really struck my fancy, this track certainly does – it starts out the game as a prologue, but makes it’s way back around again in the final stage. It’s chill and funky and perfect for a Monday.
#MusicMonday returns with “Adam Jensen”, from the Deus Ex Mankind Divided soundtrack. Clocking in at just over two minutes, this mysterious sci-fi-soaked piece defines the realm in which Adam Jensen lives without failure. Booms, hissing, hits, plucks, all the sounds you’d expect to find in this thrilling title are here, and boy does it provide a cyber-like atmosphere. Get swept away with the glorious sounds of “Adam Jensen” to start your Monday off right!
Today’s #MusicMonday comes at us from a new 8-bit inspired action game, Cyber Shadow. This game has been quite challenging, and I guess it just reaffirms that I suck at videogames. Regardless, the game is fun and the soundtrack is pretty banging.
Give it a listen, and be sure to check out the game too!
Well, folks. Another game beat, another #MusicMonday to celebrate. This week’s track is entitled “Nate’s Theme 3.0” and is nothing short of epic. Cue the soaring orchestral violins and the brass for an awakening theme that invigorates the sense of adventure. It’s catchy, fun, dramatic, and full of emotion. Uncharted 3 was a fantastic experience, and so it this track along with the rest of the score. Enjoy!
