Watch This Metal Tribute to the History of Videogames
Metal and videogames go together like two peas in a pod; shit, just last week we showed you Steve Terreberry’s djent version of the Mario Bros. theme song. And while metal versions of videogame music are somewhat old hat — see Metroid Metal, Powerglove, Dr. Zilog, etc — never before have video games and metal been meshed together in quite the manor FamilyJules7x has done it here.
What I like so much about “Replay: A Metal Tribute to the History of Video Games” is that is focuses on historically significant games, not just games this guy happened to like or ones that translated well into metal versions. The importance of Pong, Mario Bros., Sonic the Hedgehog etc are well known, but FamilyJules7X also digs a little deeper to unearth lesser known classics like Star Fox, whose vector graphics were a huge deal when it came out. Especially near and dear to my heart: Mike Tyson’s Punch Out. I would’ve been completely OK with a video full of metal interpretations of all the songs from that game alone!
I’m old so most of the music from games made after 1996 or so isn’t familiar to me, but I’m sure younger MS readers will appreciate the hell out of all of ’em.
