Battle Bards Episode 115: EVE Online


Forgettable ambient noise or entrancing space sounds? This is the debate that’s at the core of today’s episode, as the Battle Bards take on EVE Online’s beloved and perhaps misunderstood soundtrack. It’s a journey that goes far beyond our galaxy to one full of intrigue, industry, and space discotheques!

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 iTunesGoogle PlayTuneInPocket CastsStitcher, and Player.FM.

Somehow, I managed to completely miss this ep of Battle Bards which is a double surprise because 1) Eve Online is one of my favourites and 2) I got a mention in it :p
I tend to listen to BB episodes in batches, and I guess this one slipped between the cracks.

The Eve soundtrack surprised me at first when I stared playing, because I found its ambience to be at odds with the adrenaline that was constantly going any time I was undocked as a newbie. But I really like electronica and ambient, and really liked the in-game jukebox function (which I hear they removed?). I occasionally listen to the soundtrack even now.
