    Hard to argue with the music and lyrics from Fish-era Marillion:

    "Vodka intimate, an affair with isolation in a Blackheath cell
    Extinguishing the fires in a private hell
    Provoking the heartache to renew the licence
    Of a bleeding heart poet in a fragile capsule
    Propping up the crust of the glitter conscience
    Wrapped in the christening shawl of a hangover
    Baptised in the tears from the real."

    I did not know about Battlelore, thank you Steer!!

    Of Orcs and Elves is great, and so far I have also liked House of Heroes:

    They give me a feeling similar to Leaves' Eyes.

    You're welcome, Sheila. I'm glad you like them. I think every ten or so videos I post I find someone else that likes it :)

    If I can listen to video game music without paying for it, I tend to put that sort of thing on my iPod.

    One band that gives their music away (unless they actually sell it now) is the NESkimos.



    I love hearing the familiar Metroid music. The lyrics, well… like or hate the 90's grunginess, I'll say this much: the words themselves express the futility of trying to keep poor Samus Aran alive when you first enter Norfair. I got the game Christmas Eve whatever year NES Metroid was new, and I remember my awesome flip-jumping secretly-female space hero getting ripped to pixelated shreds by lava-dwelling kamikaze birds. Yet, the music was so mellow…!

    I found a band who sing about nothing but beards. This is magical.

    I just discovered The Presets - they're a bit like a sunny version of Depeche Mode:

    I think the Beards are now one of my favourite bands. Thanks for that, teacup.

    SvrtnsseSvrtnsse That's one of the soundtracks in FIFA 13. I was crazy about The Presets (well, that song) for a month.

    If there's one thing I love, it's metallized covers of a haunting song from a fantasy TV series based on a fantasy book series.

    Teacup, that is too awesome. A hair band (facial hair band?) sound with hilarious lyrics! I'm lovin' it!



    I downloaded this^ when I still lived in Hong Kong, and I still like to play all seven tracks in a row. I didn't link the Manfactory band site (seemed spammy) but they're giving this one away for free.
