“Skyrim” theme goes Metal…

In a development as inevitable as somebody being offended by the “Top Gear” Foreign Bigotry Getaway Christmas special, some enterprising muso has given the “Skyrim” theme music a metal makeover.  And it’s utterly glorious.  If you thought that Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” was a work of genius but really needed some Viking Metal action on the soundtrack, you should get on this right now.

You can find it here at YouTube and there’s also a link therein to download the cover version via SoundCloud.

Go on, you know you want to.

A Dragonborn Tale

A splendid cover version of the "Skyrim" theme...

As Will Ferrell’s “Zoolander” character, the terrifying fashion designer Mugatu, might have said “Skyrim is so hot right now“.

Hence this cover version of “The Dragonborn Comes” by Malukah, which is really quite a lovely tune made lovelier by this relatively simple, mostly unadorned performance.

You can download it if you go to her Soundcloud page – her website took a fair old pasting once the major games blogs picked up her YouTube video and is currently migrating.
