Masters of VGM is BACK for 2023! Many of your favorite video game music podcasts are returning, this time to celebrate composers who we feel might have missed out last year because they were either too new or not well-known enough to be immediately considered “masters” of the craft. However, as we hope to showcase this year, many of them are truly gifted in spite of their up-and-coming status, or are simply unsung heroes of VGM composition.

So please join us once again in June (give or take a couple weeks) 2023 as we collectively celebrate the Masters of VGM: Unsung and Up-and-Coming composers who have provided us with the music we all love!

  • Re-VGM

    Welcome to Part Two of “The Masters of VGM”.

    This week’s episode will be about a composer who’s likely to be more famous for his work on another medium besides video games: Hiroyuki Sawano. If you’ve been watching lots of anime, you probably have several shows on your list that you have watched, are watching, or have yet to watch: Seraph of the End, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn RE:0096, Attack on Titan, Seven Deadly Sins, etc. Most likely, you may have found the opening and/or ending songs to be catchy yet artistic.

    It’s the same case with any video game for which he’s composed the soundtrack. Dramatic, artistic, and yet catchy, his compositions are sure to help make the game memorable for certain cut scenes or boss fights. For some, it may surprise them that, while Hiroyuki Sawano has a long list of credit within anime, he definitely has the chops to create a banger of a soundtrack for a video game.

    Now, let’s sit back and bask in the aural glory that is Hiroyuki Sawano.
