While sitting around Googling the massive and unnecessary amount of genre’s associated to Heavy Metal music I came across one I had never heard of before. That genre was Nintendocore. Yep, it is a real metal genre with a small amount of bands that play “aggressive styles of modern rock with chiptune and video game music”.
I have to admit it piqued my interest a little, what with being video game fans and metal fans so thought I would share a few bands and tracks with you. Take a look and let me know what you think in the comments.
Warning – At least in my opinion, while interesting and comical, do not expect much in terms of heavy metal but the concept is cool and they are presumably having a good time so why not, right?
Up first we have the track Bunnies by Horse the Band
Next is the track One More Game Please, Mom by As The World Fades
Next up is We Butter The Bread With Butter by Breekachu
Finally, The Megaman 2 Medley by Minibosses
So there you have it, Nintendocore exists. Let me know what you think in the comments below or if you are aware of it already, point me towards some songs and bands to check out.
Thanks for reading!
