The 8 Bit Metal Weekend Roundup: Augury And Angel Vivaldi
Remember those classic blocky, 8-bit tunes that got stuck in your head while playing Mega Man or Breath of Fire all Saturday afternoon as a kid? Turns out they are also the perfect medium for experiencing the best metal has to offer, and many fans online have converted their favorite tunes into 8-bit format. There are probably hundreds or even thousands of these online, and today we'll share two interesting ones worth hearing.
Fist up is a recreation of Augury's "Brimstone Landscapes" from "Fragmentary Evidence" (reviewed here), a progressive/technical death metal album that is now becoming long, looong overdue for a follow-up release. While for some reason the drums seem to have been dropped from the 8 bit version, this is still a pretty faithful reproduction of the original in old school video game form.
For comparison, here's the original track:
Next up is an 8-bit rendition of "Mercurian Summer" by instrumentalist Angel Vivaldi. "A Mercurian Summer" comes off the project's "Universal Language" EP, and the original music video can be found below.
