Centiment to Tour in November With Multiplayer Mega Drive Gaming at Every Show

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

We’ve spoken about Centiment in the past because the British metallers have quite the penchant for old SEGA games. Their debut album Streets of Rage released earlier this year and features the songs Defenders of Oasis, Bloodshot and Zero Tolerance.

Now the band embark on a UK tour in December in support of their new EP, Retro. Creatively titled The Retro Gamer Tour, the band are setting up multiplayer Mega Drive action at the merch desk of every show on the tour.

If heavy music with a retro gaming twist is up your street then you might want to catch Centiment on one of these upcoming UK tour dates:

1/12 – Think Tank, Newcastle
2/12 – Audio, Glasgow
3/12 – Fibbers, York
4/12 – The Compass, Chester
5/12 – Alfie Birds, Birmingham

Centiment feature 3 of the 4 members of British rockers InMe. You can stream and buy their album Streets of Rage by clicking this link.

Mega Drive heavy metal covers band MegaDriver have been uploading these cool little ‘Game Metal Play’ videos which feature a re-arranged version of a song featured on a specific SEGA game but actually inserted into the game. We featured the Outrun cover a little while ago but since then MegaDriver have released Streets of Rage and M.U.S.H.A. covers which sound brilliant. Check them out:

SEGA Tunes: Road Rash 3 United Kingdom Theme Metal Remix

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

The Road Rash games are some of the greatest arcade racers to ever grace the Mega Drive. The games also try their best to create heavy metal songs for the soundtrack using the limitations of the Mega Drive sound-chip. For instance, check out the United Kingdom theme from Road Rash 3:

Now for the interesting bit. A rather talented chap known as Ivan BeSpaleva has rearranged the United Kingdom theme as an actual heavy metal song which you can hear below:

There’s also another fantastic take on this track by TailOff which you can hear below:

Monday, January 7th, 2013

Brazilian metal beasts MegaDriver have released their own version of Splash Wave from the Outrun soundtrack. You can check it via this link: CLICK HERE

The band have been strangely focussed on music from games not featured on the Mega Drive for quite some time and have also begun work on original material.

You can also hear the Splash Wave cover in the below video which puts the song directly into Outrun 2 with great effect:
