Blaugust Entry, Day 11
I love video game music!
I’ve been listening to two albums of VGM recorded by the London Philharmonic Orchestra recently via Spotify. But ever since I discovered Critical Hit over the weekend, I’ve been listening to them at home, in the car, and even at work! They are apparently playing at the Chicago Comic Con in a couple weeks. Ugh… if only I had enough reason to take a day off to go.
Well, since I can’t get them out of my head, I’m gonna let you guys suffer, too.
Don’t forget to crank the volume up!
Battle for New York (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3)
I posted about this two days ago, but for those of you unaware, the dude grooving on the keys (and dancing with a tambourine on the Tetris theme) is Jason Hayes, the guy who put the band together, but more importantly, the lead composer for the original World of Warcraft.
Legends of Azeroth (World of Warcraft)
The arrangement choices are very interesting in this fusion of rock and orchestral band members. Sometimes I wish that there were more strings to make certain sections fuller. It’s not perfect, but it’s pretty damn close. I absolutely love the energy, and I really love it when the violin and screaming guitar lead sing together.
More guitars, please!
Anyone want to go to Chicago Comic Con with me?
Onward, to Day 11!
