Battle Bards Episode 136: Overlooked MMO soundtracks

    
4

Ever feel like the Battle Bards have covered every MMO soundtrack in existence? It’s actually far from true, and today’s episode is Exhibit A to prove it. The team looks at seven online RPGs that have never had a single track featured on a Battle Bards show — and it’s a fun discovery process! So settle back as we roll out 100% debuts!

Battle Bards is a biweekly 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.

Have you done any DAoC music? I’m thinking specifically of the game’s ambient music tracks.

They’re trippy and beautiful and kind of perfect for calmly exploring an MMORPG world.

If you haven’t, Id love to see an episode with them.
