Battle Bards Episode 93: It’s a madhouse!

It’s taken this long, but the Battle Bards have gone completely and irreversibly insane in the membrane! Today the team cracks open the door of the MMO music funhouse to see what off-kilter, crazy, and manic tunes may be found. WARNING: Once you’ve entered the asylum, you might find yourself a resident… for life!

Battle Bards is a bi-weekly podcast that alternates between examining a single MMO’s soundtrack and exploring music tracks revolving around a theme. MOP’s Justin co-hosts with bloggers Steff and Syl. The cast is available on iTunes, Google Play, TuneInPocket CastsStitcher, and Player.FM.

The main game designer for Abzu did Journey, which is why Austin Wintory is doing the soundtrack. So think Journey, but underwater. I haven’t had a chance to play it yet myself.
Man, that Glitch track is fantastic. I would listen to whole albums of stuff like that.

The Haunted Manor was my favorite (I love little bits of the Addams Family theme in the song). I also really enjoyed The Vault (Jokers Funhouse). I normally don’t like crazy or madhouse like music in games but, you three found some really interesting tracks. For me this week in non MMO music I have been listening to Hero’s of the Storm. My favorite HotS track is the Braxis Holdout Starcraft 2 map. Thanks for the podcast.
