Episode 67: Industrial Strength VGM


Download Episode 67: “Industrial Strength VGM” here!

Sure, everyone knows that Nine Inch Nails wrote the soundtrack for Quake, right? You may not know, however, that it wasn’t the first time an industrial artist has written music for a video game.., and it certainly wasn’t the last! Ed and special guest host Todd, both long-time fans of industrial music, share their tastes and expertise in the genre.  Check out tracks that listeners of orchestral, rock, and dance will enjoy (with an industrial twist, of course!) You’ll also learn a lot about the artists that created these tunes, and find out where you can find more of their music.
