Okay, so neither one of these long-time video-game-music-making legends have released anything in a long, long time now (seriously -- 5 years since "Elf-Titled" by the Advantage?!).. but I've been re-listening to these awesome bands a lot lately and was curious what y'all think.

Personally, I'm going with the Advantages -- while they don't "rock" as much as Minibosses, their drumming (supplied by the Hella guitarist!) is top fucking notch, adds a new dimension to the songs. And the playing is a lot cleaner and more technical... they really nail these difficult songs, whereas I feel Minibosses simplify em for rock purposes (except for the bass playing, which is some of the best I've ever heard, period). Both bands are great but I enjoy putting on the Advantage's albums more.

Minibosses - Mega Man 2 medley (I do think this song, as a whole, is better than the anyhthing in the Advantage catalogue, though) = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EuxfQjJ-3DM

The Advantage - Castlevania II: Woods = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5WI8ahPV23c (seriously, listen to those drums!!!!!!!)

Contra Alien Lair and Boss Music = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKBtc...eature=related

Mega Man 2: Flash Man live = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8Gt4tOUd-g

I prefer The Advantage's sound and production.

Minibosses. If only for that medley. Mega Man 2, great music.

Here's a slightly less good local band doing similar things. What you can't see in this clip is me talking Heidegger from a k-hole to someone who was increasingly far away.

Thanks for this, Glice. What is a k-hole? A ketamine trip?

Yeah - it's when you go past the feeling like marshmallow phase to everything being at the bottom of a tunnel phase of k. Which I miss like an old lover.

The Advantage rule. Have you heard their version of Mega Man 3 Title Theme? It's amazing. I can only find a live version, but it's great.
