21:56 - moonflash Castlevania should not be forgotten in this conversation. The guy playing in this video can't possibly be human. [link]
21:54 - !J.O.O.E.! I haven't played Dragon's Crown yet, but everything of his I've heard is great. He has a very distinctive sound.
21:51 - moonflash Not familiar with much of Hitoshi san's work apart from Vagrant story (which was stellar) but the games he's worked on looks like a list of stuff I've been meaning to check out for ages! (like Tactics ogre and Dragon's Crown)
21:50 - !J.O.O.E.! Speaking of soundtracks, Alien Isolation's is exceptional. I had to turn down the actual music as it was making me too tense but that combined with the amazingly rendered ambient effects and sounds is something else.
21:41 - moonflash Yeah, Colossus and Silent Hill are brilliant. Also Assassin's Creed Brotherhood had a pretty good OST. Apart from that, literally anything by Nobuo Uematsu, Yasunori Mitsudia and Yoko Shimomura is masterclass.
Featuring seven tracks of guitar driven metal laden with double time blasting riffs, some positively S-L-O-W punishing riffs, lots of feed back and the fact these guys just RAWK makes this an enjoyable album worth checking out for those who like their metal with a nice coat of sludge.
This really surprised me - they almost sound like a completely different band now. I get the impression that they're leaning more towards stoner than sludge with this release, but it's still great. While Dark Ages might not be as aggressive as Quiet Earth, this one keeps you on your toes.
