If the only thing that comes to your mind when someone says the word â€œPowergloveâ€ is a failed Nintendo peripheral, itâ€™s time to start thinking differently. Powerglove is also a metal band that chugs out blisteringly brutal renditions of your favorite video game tunes. From Sonic to Final Fantasy IV, from 8-bit to MIDI, no catchy gaming song is left un-metalized.
During the middle of the bandâ€™s current two-month tour, I had the pleasure of meeting them for a nice chat over some cheeseburgers. I spoke with Chris Marchiel (guitar), Nick Avila (bass), and Bassil Silver (drums) about their favorite games, the bandâ€™s history, fanâ€™s most requested songs, and why they think metal and video game music blend together so well. (Unfortunately, Powergloveâ€™s additional guitarist, Alex Berkson, was unable to make it.)
