Nintendocore – A taster

While sitting around Googling the massive and unnecessary amount of genre’s associated to Heavy Metal music I came across one I had never heard of before. That genre was Nintendocore. Yep, it is a real metal genre with a small amount of bands that play “aggressive styles of modern rock with chiptune and video game music”.

I have to admit it piqued my interest a little, what with being video game fans and metal fans so thought I would share a few bands and tracks with you. Take a look and let me know what you think in the comments.

Warning – At least in my opinion, while interesting and comical, do not expect much in terms of heavy metal but the concept is cool and they are presumably having a good time so why not, right?

Up first we have the track Bunnies by Horse the Band

Next is the track One More Game Please, Mom by As The World Fades

Next up is We Butter The Bread With Butter by Breekachu

Finally, The Megaman 2 Medley by Minibosses

So there you have it, Nintendocore exists. Let me know what you think in the comments below or if you are aware of it already, point me towards some songs and bands to check out.

Thanks for reading!

    Owner/Editor/Writer/YouTuber - Heavy Metal and reading, two things I have always loved so they are the two areas you will find most of my reviews. Post apocalyptic is my jam and I always have a book on the go and have for decades now. From a metal perspective, age has softened my inadequacies and I now operate with an open mind, loving many bands from many sub genres but having a particular admiration for the UK underground scene. In my other time, when not focused on Dad duties and work, I try to support the craft beer movement by drinking as much of it as I can and you will also find me out on the streets, walking. I love walking, I love exploring new places and snapping nature photos as I go.
