Dragons have invaded the podcast, and we are the only ones to stop them! Or rather, we are here to tame them! We will ride them, RIDE THEM TO VICTORY! Joining us on this adventure is the video game rock band Gunblade X. Grab your sword, your shield, and be prepared to ROCK.
Gunblade X serves up an explosive concoction of video game music, progressive rock, and heavy metal. Fueled by a desire to tell the stores of their games, the band brings a unique blend of arranged video game soundtracks and original video game-based tunes to the greater DC area.
Dark clouds are looming over this podcast, something’s happening. Something great and terrible! On this week’s episode we listen to moody and suspenseful music, perfect to ramp-up the tension on an otherwise fun and friendly podcast. But of course we can’t hold it in, and this episode features more singing and silliness than ever!
To help us out this week we’re joined by game composer Erik Desiderio (Anshar Online, Diablo III: Rise of the Necromancer, Adventure Time VR) Erik is an award-winnner composer for film, TV, and of course, video games!
Check out his soundtrack to the new game Anshar Online, available now!

This episode is all about monsters in video games! Rob thinks it’s about games where you play as monsters, and Pernell thinks it’s about games where the focus is destroying monsters. Will this misunderstanding finally end their friendship!? Spoiler! Nothing can ruin their friendship. They talk about how to describe music and attempt to find more uses for the word ignorant.
Special thanks to listener Rebecca for the great topic suggestion! You’re the best!
