I did something that I really hadn't planned on doing: cover a Castlevania song. I got a request on YouTube to record my version of "Heart of Fire" from the game, and I thought, "why the hell not?" I've been spending what little free time I have for my music writing this Simon Belmont album (6 or 7 months of recording demos now). I thought doing another quick Mega Beardo track would help break the writing cycle a bit.
Doing this cover was a lot of fun, though it wasn't as challenging as a lot of the Mega Man 2 stuff. I forgot how much fun it was to take a piece of music from these games, jam on it for a while, and see what sort of originality stems from it. I hope you guys dig the little spin I put on this tune.
I'm putting a video together for it now. I'll upload that to YouTube and then put the mp3 of the song on the Download tab of this site. On a side note, I was quite surprised that this song hadn't been covered endlessly on YouTube like I thought it would be. What gives?
So apparently, I'm taking requests now. Anything you guys want to hear? Shoot me an email or comment below.
