The Advantage - Gradius/Solar Jetman Live

Nintendo cover band The Advantage have posted a pair of live MP3s to their eye-melting website in anticipation of their upcoming album Elf-Titled. The sound quality of these live tracks is certainly not the greatest (so what else is new with these guys), but one of the MP3s features music from the space shoot-em-up classic "Gradius", a song that they have yet to release on an album. A studio recording of "Solar Jetman - Braveheart Level", on the other hand, will be available on Elf-Titled when it is released through 5RC on January 24th.

I really like the idea of a band doing video game music. Unless you have the games at hand, nobody would be able to appreciate the quality of tunes used.

Along with Capcom and Sqare Soft, Konami (Casltlevania, Contra) seemed to have the best games and music to boot.

Just got Elf-titled today. The studio recorded Solar Jetman song is probably the best song on the album, but they're all pretty good. The recording quality is a lot better than their first album.
