If you don't know who they are, you can listen to some of their songs here - http://www.myspace.com/minibossess or http://www.minibosses.com

Minibosses are a progressive rock band that cover old school game tunes.

That's right - 8-16 bit music files are covered and are AMAZING.

If you like video game music, listen to these guys.

I have their "Brass" album. They cover -

Castlevania
Ninja Gaiden
Double Dragon
Super Mario Bros 2
Ikari Warriors
Contra
Mike Tyson's Punch Out!
Kid Icarus
MegaMan 2
and Metroid

Seriously, check these guys out.

I have...err had every album they released and also some of the live shit they had online. I sadly lost them when I last moved to TN, but was ok because I had backups on my HD, then just a couple of weeks ago my HD crashed. Sad

Thatīs some great stuff!!
Reminds me of the songs from Metroid Metal.

Me and my brother are always kidding about doing a metal version of the classic Tetris theme, or about doing metal versions of the Sonic soundtrack.

I also have Metroid Metal Smile I also have a Sonic Remixed CD with songs from 1 through S3:S&K that is a mixed between techno and metal. When it comes to game music, bam, I'm the man.
