Rhythm Encounter 31 – Those Who Fight Further

Rhythm Encounter continues its miniseries of battle tunes with some of our favorite boss battle themes! We go old school with some classics but save room for recent and upcoming boss battles you’re sure to love. Check it out below, and remember to fight, fight, fight!

The Rhythm Encounter crew are taking on big, bad bosses in our second of three episodes devoted to battle themes. Stephen lets the SNES live again with some lesser known picks, Caitlin has an uncontrollable love for crazy piano and strings, and Mike brings some explosively awesome tracks to round out the show. Don’t miss our recent music section, which is awesome as always!

Note 1: Like episode 23, this episode was recorded before our special mini-episode (22.9). So you may hear some things that are out of sync with previous episodes. We apologize for any confusion and promise 100% fewer temporal anomalies going forward.

Note 2: We had to re-number our episodes several years after publishing. This was originally Episode 24, as reflected in the audio. Don’t worry, you’re not missing anything!

Featuring: Stephen Meyerink, Caitlin Argyros, Mike Salbato
