Metal songs in 8-Bit
« on: April 11, 2016, 09:33:05 PM »
I've been a fan of chiptunes since the old days of Nintendo. Castlevania, Metal Gear, Ghouls n' Ghosts, Duck Tails (moon level), anyone? ^_^ Now I found two interests that I like: metal and chiptunes.

Without further ado, I bring you a sample of some great metal songs covered in 8-bit:

Eluveitie in 8-bit is fantastic!  I love it!

And that Soilwork song sounds like stage music in a really aggressive, fast paced platformer.  Like a Contra game or something.
