Viking Guitar Live keeps the world metal with Warpath

Viking Guitar Live  - Warpath.jpg

I've seen half of this band perform at multiple times, in multiple places. One day I will see the full band in one place at one time though. Got to have life goals. VGL really runs the gauntlet here with seven tracks from seven different series. None of them Gauntlet though. We do got some Mega Man X2, Ninja Gaiden 2, The 7th Saga, aaand Zelda, Secret of Mana and Ghosts 'n' Goblins. One series being an anime and not a game, though I think there was a Trigun game once.


VIKING GUITAR LIVE is the five-person live version of Viking Guitar, including some long-time contributors to the video game cover music scene. “Warpath” is our follow-up to 2014’s “Legion”, re-recording and reinterpreting earlier Viking Guitar tunes for the full band. We’ve been trying to record this album since late 2015, but various other projects and real-life obligations prevented it from happening until now. However, since that time we’ve gotten the opportunity to play at several large conventions, and have done a bunch of smaller shows as “Viking Guitar Lite” (with just Erik and Grant) and this album is a great culmination of the last few years.

There are two new songs for you on here that have never been recorded previously, and one (7th Saga) that we’ve never played live.

Thanks to everyone that continues to listen to this music and to come see us perform. It’s a wonderful experience for us, every time, and we couldn’t do it without you!
