Game Cover Band Led by WoW Composer Releases 2nd Song [VID]

An often overlooked aspect of video games is the music. Graphics get all the glory, while wonderful musical scores receive only a fraction of the attention.

World of Warcraft composer Jason Hayes is fronting a new video game music tribute band named Critical Hit, which recently released its second music video. A timely release alongside Call of Duty: Ghosts, the video is a cover of “Battle for New York” from Modern Warfare 3′s sound track.

The violin really does it for me. For reference, you can listen to the original version of Battle for New York from the MW3 OST here.

Critical Hit released its debut album, which features the following songs:

01. Tetris: “Main Theme”
02. Angry Birds: “Main Theme”
03. World of Warcraft: “Legends of Azeroth”
04. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time: “Zelda’s Lullaby”
