This week we listen to games that we all have special memories of. These games may not be our favorites now, but they will always have a special place in our hearts. We talk about when we started appreciating game music, bullet-hell therapy, and why is it that musicians of the HEAVIEST of metal groups are also the chillest! Speaking of which, joining us this week is Final Fantasy metal group Knight of the Round!
Joining us this week is Justin and Adam from the Final Fantasy metal group Knight of The Round! Spanning over a wide variety of the metal genre from classic thrash to modern progressive metal, the four piece delivers many iconic themes from Final Fantasy in the heaviest way possible.
Sit down on our couch, close your eyes, and tell us about your dreams. We listen to music from games based on dreams, games about dreams, and music designed to put you in a dream-like state. Also, Pernell is coming after Best Buy, lots of broccoli talk, and music that ranges from chill to insane.
