VGM: Chrono Trigger metal covers

Chrono Trigger’s soundtrack and the long hair of 80’s metal bands aren’t two things I’d normally imagine go together… at all. But a series of covers by YouTuber Little V makes it work surprisingly well.

I suspect part of the reason is because he employs a much more melodic/rock style of sound palatable for us non-metal types. Secondly, while he adapts the composition into guitar riffs, overall, Little V doesn’t mess with the original music (unlike most of the pulsating “techno” remixes out there).

So check it out: the unavoidable “Corridors of Time” cover:

But there’s a ton of other quality tracks covered, like Lavos’ Theme:

About J.C

I grew up in the dark dingy arcades of the 1980s, blasting heads with Robocop 2, but grew up in an era that spanned the introduction of the x86 home computer, through to the 16-bit revolution, into the polygon age and beyond. I write about food, travel and of course, New Retro Games. I started newretrogames.wordpress.com and contribute to www.thecitylane.com. I am also a freelance business researcher, writer, and editor having published academic and corporate articles on innovation and intellectual property.
