Weird Music: Henry Hatsworth and classic opera scenes in gaming history

In the latest episode of Weird Music, ReZonance takes on Henry Hatsworth, and a very niche genre of video game music, opera. From the classic moment in Final Fantasy VI, to a very different kind of classic moment in Conker's Bad Fur Day for the N64. ReZonance then introduces fans to an opera scene that might not be quite so familiar, that of 2009 DS title, Henry Hatsworth and the Puzzling Adventure. Which of the three does ReZonance think stands above the rest? Enjoy the video to find out.

When you think of Video game music, i'm sure Operas don't really come to mind. There's a few good Operas out there, but the Great Mighty Poo comes to mind most often...unfortunately. Well here's another ridiculous chunk of video game music that is another outstanding Opera piece.

ReZonence is where you go for video game soundtracks. I've always loved the music in video games, and reviewing them is my way to show my appreciation, and spread my love of gaming music.

Concert Shots: Distant Worlds 25th Anniversary Show

The first Final Fantasy game was released on December 18th, 1987. Coming up soon is the 25th anniversary of that first title that spun up one of the world's most vast series of games, and so what better of a celebration than to have Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy put on a show in celebration of that? Complete with newly edited video footage, as well as some new tracks (including a huge battle theme montage), the 25th Anniversary show put on by the Distant Worlds crew did not disappoint. Below are just a few select shots from the show, showcasing the performance; of course, they're no match for being there in person, so be sure to get some tickets to one of their upcoming shows!

The Smooth Egyption - Drinking from the Nile album release

This is why I like running this site. I love getting emails about things I would have never run across on my own. I had never even heard of the game Pharaoh before (gasp). Until I get an email about a 'Smooth Egyptian' mixing some nice beats to samples of this Pharaoh. I can only hope that there is a person reading this, loves Pharaoh, and is now bobbing their head in time with this album.

Some of these tracks are begging to be rapped on.

But only if you rap on them as Pharaohs, or at least people from ancient civilizations.

Listen to this when planning the best way to build a city, or when you are watching a show about aliens building the pyramids.

DJ CUTMAN w/ Spamtron, Mykah, and dj-Jo - The TRIFORCE of BASS album release

Looks like DJ CUTMAN has fulfilled his destiny and found the three EPs that create the legendary Triforce of Bass. Grab it from the DJ CUTMAN bandcamp for free and hear tributes to Zelda from Skyward Sword to the original title that started it all.
