Along with his illustrious credentials as the
monumentalÂ guitaristÂ inÂ not one
, but two
, of the most popular bands in VGM history,Â Daniel Behrens has made quite a name for himself. This reputation may be punctuated by the fact that Behrens’ solo work asÂ Danimal Cannon
,Â withÂ his latest albumÂ Roots,Â
has takenÂ the VGM community by storm. This may prove one of two things:Â Danimal Cannon is incredibly talented artist orÂ Danimal CannonÂ is actually a Norse god sent down by the heavens to teach us the ways of both epic shredding andÂ
chiptunes indelibly made into a staunchÂ configurationÂ of a human being. While I would agree with the former, Danimal Cannon’s “Roots (IRL Mix)” may have most acquiesce to the latter. “Roots (IRL Mix)” takes orchestral metal to the next level, proving that Daniel Behrens is indeed a metal Thor incarnate.
Peep his latest song above and let us know what you think.Â While you can cop Roots for a mere ten dollars, Danimal Cannon’s “Roots (IRL Mix)” is available for free on Bandcamp.
