I don't post too often, so, when I do, it must be something special (been a lurker for years and years besides buying/selling), but you were not kidding.....DAMN! Thanks for pointing me their way :-)
There is vgm metal, but this is truly VGM M-E-T-A-L...(insert Rob Halford wail)!
The nod to SSH using his Mario remix and just their styling/instrumental arrangements are top notch....typical Power Metal with liberties in original melodies for a twist……the Zelda and Final Fantasy IV pieces are truly favorites of mine! If you like double bass drumming, some great odd time changes/flourishes abound.
Tracklist as follows:
1. So Sexy Robotnik (Sonic)
2. Mario Minor (Super Mario World)
3. Fight On (Killer Instinct)
4. Vanquish The Horrible Night (Castlevania)
5. Blasting The Hornet (Mega Man X3)
6. The Duck Grinder (Duck Hunt)
7. Power. Wisdom. Courage (Zelda)
8. Omnishred (We’re Gonna Need A Bigger Sword) (Final Fantasy VII)
9. Holy Orders (Be Quick And Just Shred) (Guilty Gear)
10. Metal Kombat For The Mortal Man (Mortal Kombat, Mega Man 2)
11. Red Wings Over Baron (Final Fantasy IV)
If you like hard rock/metal vgm arrangements, have no fear in getting this...
Merry Axe-mas! (yeah, yeah, cheesy, I know)
