The Household Cavalry perform Game of Thrones

This performance of the iconic Game of Thrones TV series opening theme happened during the changing of the guards outside Buckingham Palace. I speculate this doesn’t happen very often as there would be more YouTube footage of it. A stroke of luck then that Omer Barnea had a great view and was recording from the […]

The channel is focused on Sonya Belousova, a piano player, and in this video she brings with her musical friends all cosplaying Akira. She also brings Eru Matsumoto who uses a neon bow for her electric cello […]

This is a thing: Batmetal

It’s Batman meets Metal. In particular, this is ArhyBES’s take of Dethklok’s Face Fisted. Their “new” band is called Children of Batman and this remake is called Batface. You might not want to listen to this at work because, well, metal. And swearing. I like the arrangement of Red Hood, Robin and then Nightwing across […]

Bannerman – A Game of Throne / Piano Man parody

I’ll admit to having a lot of love for Billy Joel’s Piano Man. That’s the easy part. What about Gregor Clegane fro a Song of Ice and Fire? Yup; we’re talking about Game of Thrones’ The Mountain. Not so much love. This tribute mashup from Grombar Smash tells the story of the Bannerman. If you […]

Geek Native’s featured the music of Erang before as the sort of music suitable for game night. Call it what you want – and Erang uses both “Dungeon Synth” and “Medieval Fantasy” – this is music inspired by The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, the Silmarillion and old movies like Conan, the Dark Crystal and […]

Nameless World mixes electro rock and Zombillenium monsters

Here’s a good idea. To promote the graphic novel Zombillenium: Gretchen the talented Arthur de Pins created the music video Nameless World. I’m allowed to be jealous anyone who can write and draw their own graphic novel about an amusement park run by monsters and who can then put together an animated music video to […]

Mastodon’s music video full of RPG and LARP

Out of the blue Mastodon’s music video for “High Road” features a geeky kid who stays at home to look after his gran. He’s also a roleplayer with an active imagination and a LARPer. As a metal video expect a couple of real-life twists. Worth a watch, I say.
