I’m a big fan of 8-bit music. I grew up playing games like Pokemon and Mega Man on the Gameboy and the soundtrack to my childhood has been those 3-note melodies of simpler games much unlike the music in games we see today. So when a friend of mine recommended Sky Sanctuary, I was delighted to hear some of the best 8 bit music that really brings me back to my childhood. Though don’t be fooled; while carrying the same retro feel of 8-bit music and using it as a foundation, we are also treated with some stellar djent. This isn’t your typical axe-fx rhythm crazy djent though. The main focus here is the 8-bit inspired melodies and arcade feel.
