An Epic Metal Tribute To Video Game Music.

I don’t toss around either the word “Epic” or “Metal” lightly, but I’ve gotta say, this is kind of amazingly both. Clocking it at over 17min, this Mass-based musician has been making the rounds on Kotaku and Dorkly while making a solid run for YouTube aristocracy. I think this video has a chance to get him there. It’s less than a week old and I’ve not seen it shared yet. Trust me, the covers of grossly relevant video games, done impeccably & brutally at times, will keep your attention.  Especially when he switches guitars and does other crazy tricks. Watch it, you’ll see, and if you don’t think both metal & vgmusic are related to the dance floor, then you’ve got a lot to learn about the histories of both 😀

Someone Made A Mash-Up Of All The Zelda. Yes, Including The Weird Animated One On The CD-I.

Just in case you were a fan of VG music, someone has taken the entirety of the Legend of Zelda game history, and created a song just from the sound effects. Like, this must have taken hours and hours to just record/cut the damn sound effects, much less compose this thing & actually toss all of the footage into a video editor. The mind reels, but you, the reader benefit. Check it out, and if you know what the “Well, Excuuuuse me Princess!” is from, hit up the comments to prove you’re old school. The show was a staple of my childhood, bet you don’t know though! (via Kotaku)
