VHS Glitch is back! This time providing a high-test Original Soundtrack for a top downer mobile game titled Chrome Death.
Although it dawns the tag “Dark Synth” on its Bandcamp, If you’re looking for that, you would be better suited picking up another one of his many releases. However, If you’re looking for something that sounds like it was pulled straight from the Super Nintendo game Top Gear, and sprayed lime green with 10 coats of clear. Then this is for you.
The best track to demonstrate the previous analogy is the second track, “Burned Asphalt”. This track, this cheeky cunt, with its 4-to-the-floor, 16th bass-line, and cowbells. It crawls into the tropes of Synthwave genre like Skywalker into a TaunTaun. While making subtle improvements. Whats not to love?
Burned Asphalt could be mistaken for another 5 minutes of the title track Chrome Death, and I mean this in the best possible way. This is how you stick to an aural palate and deliver a conceptual theme for something like this, An OST for a game.
Track 3, “Moment of Silence” Driven by a smooth arp throughout that sounds like it could have been inspired by composer Cristobal Tapia de Veer, and in honor of the title that is all I’ll say.
Track 4, “Pedal To The Metal” Takes a bit of a detour, Instead of sounding like Top Gear, It’s a Battletoads/Golden Axe melting pot, If any song on this fits the industrial tag hes used, this is the closest with its faux distorted guitar power chord sounding synth and squelching ornaments
The OST sounds great, the Game? Eh not so much. I would of wanted more than 5 tracks on this OST but i have a suspicion the replay value of Chrome Death, The game, is shorter than the OST runtime.
