Music Monday: Super Metal Brothers
Geek points to anyone who can guess the quote I’m referencing in the post summary. It’s not hard.
Brothers Dan and Frank Johansen – known collectively as The Dual Dragons – share a love of composing, music, and video games. It only seemed natural, then, that the two would eventually team up to remix Final Fantasy songs with a metal twist. Their album “Final Fantasy History” strives to represent every Final Fantasy game released – up to and including Final Fantasy X. While most of the remixes cover single tracks, there are a few medleys to be found in the mix, and the medleys remain my favorite offerings of these two.
The album’s free to download, as are their one-shot remixes, on their website. The boys have been a little slow to upload lately, but as far as I can tell, they’re still active, and worth checking out if you’re into video game music with a metal flair. I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that they finish their Castlevania tribute album.
