Megadriver

MegaDriver is a Brazilian heavy metal cover band. Their covers consist almost entirely of video game music, especially from the Genesis system (Mega Drive was the Genesis' name outside of North America). Because of this focus, the band's style has been termed "(Video) Game Metal".

MegaDriver is a Brazilian heavy metal cover band. Their covers consist almost entirely of video game music, especially from the Genesis system (Mega Drive was the Genesis' name outside of North America). Because of this focus, the band's style has been termed "(Video) Game Metal".

The band considers itself to be a "non-profit independent project" and does not charge for its music. Their stated goal is to "pay homage to classic video games." To this end, they have made their entire repertoire available for free download at their website.

They have released two albums titled "ACTION METAL" and "Push Start Button (Round One)" (a demo CD) as well as several singles. In addition, the band has released four full soundtracks for the "Metal MAME" project, which reprograms MAME images using heavy metal remixes of the games' original music. They have even gone as far as to making their own music videos with their songs in the background, i.e., the video for Raging Storm is a tribute to Geese Howard, using various footage from Fatal Fury games, artwork of Geese, and also footage from the Fatal Fury animes.
