[Metal/Synthwave] Master Boot Record – Street Fighter II Ken stage cover

MBR has been very prolific in making synth wave covers of video games sound. Last week, we had a chance to listen to his “Super Metroid” (Ninendo – SNES) cover. Few days later, he also posted his “Street Fighter II” (Capcom) cover, recreating the tunes of “Ken Stage”.
Just listening to it is like a trigger alert, instinctively letting you shout “Ha-Du-Ken!”, some well-placed “Sho-Ryu-Ken” Dragon Punch, all on your C64 computer. For that cover, we have a clear winner: “You Win. Perfect!”

▶ [Metal/Synthmetal] Master Boot Record – Super Metroid Cover

Master Boot Record is certainly one of my favorite synth metal artist, blending the roughness of metal with primitive melodic tones straight from an 8-bit computer and from a 5.25 floppy drive.
He has been doing some video games cover recently and just released a cover from Super Metroid (Super Nintendo) that in my own opinion throws the original light years away and really wished to play that game with that soundtrack right now.
Listen and enjoy! Oh yes, if you want to hear more tunes from Master Boot Records, check his Bandcamp profile:
