cogs1701 Great album! Really enjoy the overall sound that you've made. Very atmospheric and layered. Also like the sound of some of the snippets you've released for your next album, so looking forward to that one as well. I like the dark synth sound, which seems to be quite present in the new work. Favorite track: Ghosts Beneath the Mountain.

The_Dood_Abides I never knew an 8-bit album could be so heavy, I've been headbanging to this since I bought it. Since I love every track, it's difficult to pick a favorite, but "Daemon Construct" is the track I tend to put on repeat.

You did an awesome job with this album, in fact I enjoyed it so much that I bought the other three as well. I can't wait to see what you release next. Favorite track: Daemon Construct.

Dan Hessler Logan you did a fantastic job. I love listening to this music while programming! I honestly don't have a favorite song because I just take your whole collection and put it on shuffle. I love every one but this new album is totally your best. Just wish there were more tracks!! Favorite track: Daemon Construct.

RobTheButcher Great album from this guy. Perfectly mixes Metal and Bit-Tune Music without faulting. To get the whole experience buy the Full Discography and enjoy what Zweihander is to the fullest. Favorite track: Ghosts Beneath the Mountain.

It's time for a metal album. All songs created in October 2017.

With Daemon Slayer, I really wanted to add some metal teeth to many of the nostalgic memories we all have. Blackthorne, Actraiser, Doom, Quake, Descent, Heritic, Fallout 1 & 2, etc. were all influences as far as the heavy sound goes.  The overall mood came while conjuring up visions influenced by old RPGs like Ultima Underworld, Daggerfall, Drakkhen, Vampire Bloodlines, among hundreds of others.

After purchasing, be sure to add your comment or recommendation. Where did this music take you? What old games did you imagine?


released October 31, 2017

Our Castles and Crusades (like D&D) adventures influenced many of the themes.
The Zweihänder game dev team was an inspiration too.
