So last week I featured Cory Johnson’s post-rock Legend of Zelda remixes, and I hope you guys enjoyed it! This week, I’d like to share with you another of my favorite videogame remixes, Metroid Metal.
Metroid Metal is a group of musicians and popular remixers(is that a word?) who take the iconic spacey tunes of the Metroid franchise and rework them into awesome instru-prog metal. If you’re a fan of Metroid and like to rock out to bands like Animals As Leaders, Scale The Summit, or Electro Quarterstaff, then you’ll dig Metroid Metal. These are some of the most listenable renditions of videogame music I’ve ever heard, and even though I discovered these guys a few years ago, their 2009 album Varia Suite is still in constant rotation, and their 2010 EP Expansion Pack is equally good.
Give ‘em a listen and be sure to support the band!
