S.S.H. Metal Squad rides hard 4 life

A lot of classic video game console music (classic VGM) seemed to have been influenced by ’80s heavy metal. Especially the music featured in the 2-D ‘shmup genre. Particularly the music in the Thunder Force series — it’s metal as fuck.¬†Furthermore, it is one of the series often covered by the Japanese studio musician, S.S.H. (graciously linked to on the sidebar there).

And what is this particular song called? Metal Squad! Of course it is. Well damn, this is about as metal as you can get. This is the real deal. I don’t even think a real guitar is in the song. I wonder what it’s like to live in a country where technical skill is still admired. Must be a different kinda place…
