MetalUnderground.com has always been about providing the full breadth of entertainment to our readers. Music stands at the crossroads of so many other forms of entertainment and is a unifying force that binds, whether it blends in art, history, literature, motion pictures, or in this case video games.

Oklahoma City progressive metal act Vangough blends nearly all forms of entertainment within its fantastic form of music, including nods to classic games. Take its 2010 sophomore release "Game On" (see review here), in which the band did an instrumental tribute to 25 years of gaming music.

Vocalist Clay Withrow approached us with an idea to exclusively run a new feature series on classic video games. You see, Clay and the guys fancy themselves video game connoisseurs, akin to beer snobbery, but with consoles. Armed with an eclectic, and seemingly endless array of games in the collection, the band produces video clips of classic game battles. It is a unique and fascinating look into a form of entertainment that practically envelops nearly all in the metal world, young and old.

In the first part of this new ongoing exclusive series, the band celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the classic battle game Mortal Kombat, which happens to fall this week.

In the video, Kyle and Clay of spill buckets of blood just in time for Halloween in Mortal Kombat Trilogy for the Nintendo 64. Released in November 1996, Mortal Kombat Trilogy was the first fighting game to land on the N64 and featured characters and levels from the first three Mortal Kombat arcade games.

MetalUnderground.com is proud to present: Vangough's Post-Impressionist Video Game Battles, Pt 1 here:
