Besides the obvious reasons why this is absolutely epic,  8 Bit’s pure motivation to render some of metal’s most iconic standards as cheerful, uplifting and heartwarming plinky-plonky anthems for a new age makes us feel like we’re head banging while driving a pixelated car across a Nintendo gardenscape.

So without further ado… feast your ears on 8 Bit Musician's reimagined masterpieces. And if the the following three tracks do anything for you, be sure to subscribe to the visionaries YouTube channel, where similar recreations are a plenty including tracks by Opeth, Pantera, Helloween and more.
