Cheveu Miracle I haven't actually played the game itself, but someone introduced me to its original soundtrack and a few tracks were dope. These metal/guitar arrangements however kick everything up into an even tastier comfort zone.
"A scent of supreme..." (The Bad Joker)
(metal VGM / 2015 / USA // ++ ) Favorite track: Infernal Descent (1-1).

SeaMaid While I'm fond of all versions of the OST, the fact FamilyJules also arranged songs that would never play in-game in Aria's route makes it stand out more in a good way! Favorite track: Peril of the Bells (Dead Ringer).

The cries Of the one's that follow echo through the halls Of the crypt walls Can you now Find the path through the dark and the mighty ones who dwell in this dark hell I'll tear your apart while you're dancing to the beating of your heart You know you will never make it out alive Your heart will keep racing but family can't survive And every beat belongs to me the Necrodancer Pain is the fate that follows you inside my halls in the crypt walls Will you fall up against all the mighty ones I've brought from death To take your breath So steel your composure the time has to come to flee the crypt or Dance as if death would match your steps For now all depends on if you don't fall too far behind for I will draw in and I will put an end to the rhythm of your heart so now dance for your life Dance for your life Dance for your life You cannot hope to find your way on through this labyrinth so Dance Not cuz you want to I've taken control of this whole army Fight Because your family is trapped by me and You cannot not escape or find refuge Here, your beating heart controls your chance to Find the ones you've come to save see if you can find yourself Inside my crypt of walking death, you will die and join them if you can't survive and Dance for your Life Dance for me you're never free So Dance So Dance So Dance for your Life
I have one chance Take one quick glance This last sacrifice I take one final Dance and say listen my child, every thing must come to an end my love, don't fear the crypt All must end, but for you and your family, not today Stop my heart, just please don't tear apart my will to make things right After all the pain I've caused to her and all the lives you stole for this you know your lust for power was at a cost The final end A death that cannot be cheated like it was before Fear not, daughter Or grand daughter You've helped me to bring peace to our cur-sed land for years so please fear not, daughter I must go but know I leave for you Please let me go Everything must come to an end Your time will come too But it's not today Stop my heart, just please don't tear apart my will to make things right After all the pain I've caused to her and all the lives you stole for this you know your lust for power was at a cost The final end A death that cannot be cheated like it was before Not Today


People all over the world were brought back to the dance pad to perform monster beat downs to the beat through the soundtrack of the award winning indie dungeon crawler rhythm game, “Crypt of the Necrodancer” by Brace Yourself Games. The game's composer, Danny Baranowsky (Canabalt, Super Meat Boy, and The Binding of Isaac), wanted to bring the game's soundtrack to the next level and decided to bring FamilyJules7x on board to shred every track as its own metal remix album. Featured in the game as the soundtrack for Aria, the NG++ character and most difficult challenge in the game's story mode, Jules' renditions are sure to have you headbanging while you shred dragons to blast beats and breakdowns.

Aria's Ascent features the 20 in-game tracks remixed and remastered with added parts in addition to 8 special bonus tracks including covers of songs not featured in the game. Get ready for the earth shattering vocals of YouTube's Jonathan Young and Jack Fliegler (ToxicxEternity), a blistering solo by Richard Bichler (RichaadEB), and the intense tear-jerking vocals of Adriana Figueroa (Adrisaurus). While these bonus tracks are exclusive to Aria's Ascent, many of the songs in the album can be heard in game as you traverse the world of Crypt of the Necrodancer, selectable from the settings menu as any character.

The tracks from Aria's Ascent have been referred to as "F*cking Awesome" by Gamespot and can be heard as the soundtrack of choice all across Twitch.tv. For even more Necrodancer goodness, check out Danny Baranowsky's crypt-crushing original soundtrack (dbsoundworks.bandcamp.com/album/crypt-of-the-necrodancer-ost) or the mind-blowing EDM remix album by A_Rival (rivalrivalrival.bandcamp.com/album/crypt-of-the-necrodancer-the-melody-mixes). Next time you go up against a colossal dancing dragon or charging minotaur, you might want to add Aria's Ascent to your arsenal.
