MORE 8-BIT METAL MADNESS!
Last week Axl posted a metal cover of the Super Mario Bros. theme song; it was pretty fuckin’ cool, but with all due respect I think Nylithia‘s metal cover of the “castle” music theme, sent in by MS Maniac Scott Bahash, blows it away.

The ending is absolutely epic, too:
MS Maniac Will Mellor sent in this 8-bit cover of Slayer’s “Angel of Death,” which is also pretty good:
