Episode 96 – Slayin’ 2 with composer Matt Creamer

Matt Creamer (AKA Norrin Radd) has been one of our favorite guests (and composers) for some time now, but he’s been holding back from us. He’s unleashed his final musical form in the mold of Slayin’ 2’s original soundtrack and it is A BANGER/ROCKER! Now it’s time for you to feast your ears on over a dozen epic tracks that perfectly merge the worlds of modern and retro VGM. From the guys gettin’ goofy about one of Matt’s inspirations for a song (Home Improvement?!) to Justin poking fun at Mike for picking almost all Grassland tracks, we dissect the soundtrack’s sound like never before on the show and Matt answered all our questions like a pro. Step into the world of this modern retro indie that takes inspiration from Guardian Heroes, the early Ys games and more in this truly SLAYIN’ episode of XVGM Radio!
