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.
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!
Haven is a fairly unique RPG that explores a long-term relationship, while giving players the freedom to explore on their own terms. The soundtrack is absolutely wonderful – it’s upbeat and vibrant, calm and relaxing, and everything in between.
I chose this track, quite frankly, because every time it came on, my wife would start whistling along to it. It’s that addictive.
Be sure to check out the rest of the soundtrack, though. You won’t be disappointed!
Man oh man it this soundtrack phenomenal. Not only I am absolutely in love with this game, the soundtrack is taking my breath away. The moment “Lei Havina” started to play, I immediately thought, there’s no way the soundtrack could get any better than this. And it did, more than once. “Lei Havina” is a hypnotic, mesmerizing theme that stays with you long after its sultry hypnosis. Think Kenny G flying over blissful skies with violins being played by Angels….following his Superman fantasies. Anyway, enjoy!
