YouTube VGM cover artist Jack Fliegler, aka ToxicxEternity, is back with another collection of metal covers of video game songs. Pulling from the large number of covers he has put together over the last six months or so, VG Metal Covers Vol. 7 contains twelve tracks from various video games. Much like the last few…
I’ve been reading American Gods and SMT really came to mind. So I tried using the series’ music as an influence and to mirror the experience of going down the rabbit hole. The original title was supposed to be Descent into Hell.
Around this time every year, the airwaves start up a war that will last a few months, to determine which song can claim the title of “Summer Jam”. It’s the most requested and played song, seared into brains via ear-worms which define memories of that Summer—at the club, on the beach, in the car. Video games have…

There are so many talented YouTube musicians who produce covers of video game music using their instruments of choice. The guitar is frequently this instrument of choice, and few VGM cover artists wield the staple instrument of rock as well as Jack Fliegler, aka ToxicxEternity. Last year, when I originally started…
Greetings TAY readers, I wanted to share with you all a very special project I have been slaving away at for the better part of 2016. But first let’s rewind to 2010.
The Legend of Zelda series is well known for its consistently amazing soundtracks, many composed by legendary video game composer Koji Kondo. Even non-gamers recognize the now-iconic overworld theme from the first entry in the series. Despite this, these soundtracks were often held back from what they could have been…

After a shaky first year of life, we’re pleased an early time of death didn’t have to be called on the Nintendo 3DS. Otherwise, this five year anniversary would have been a lot more depressing.
Not too long ago, I was nonchalantly browsing through Facebook, when I happened upon a video (below). Its description read “No music, just pure straight-six eargasm.” My immediate reaction was “This is exactly what I need right now.”

Be it contributing to the soundtrack, or even being involved with the game’s development, here are 10 awesome…
Chances are if you’re a fan of video game music you’ve hit up YouTube to search for that epic boss anthem or listen to a playlist from your favorite game to get you through the work day. One YouTube channel is working tirelessly to upload all your favorite video game music...kind of.
There’s nothing quite as wonderful as JRPGs’ common practice of utilizing sweeping compositions to accompany equally vast journeys. Trails of Cold Steel is not much different. But what’s even more striking about the latest installment in The Legend of Heroes’ series, is when its soundtrack deviates from this norm.
Normal people in the early 2000’s most likely heard Evanescence’s “Bring Me to Life”, one of the most well-known rock songs of the period, from radio or its music video. But that’s just normal people. You know how I first heard it?
Tomorrow marks the 20th anniversary of one of the most beloved gaming franchises of all time. Pokemon has held a special place in gamers’ hearts for two decades now.
