Malukah Medley Pays Tribute to The Banner Saga

Malukah Medley Pays Tribute to The Banner Saga

Malukah and Taylor Davis have released a new haunting medley of music from The Banner Saga.

The Banner Saga overall was a freaking gorgeous game. As pretty as its animated visuals were to look at though, it was often even lovelier to listen to. Its soundtrack, composed by Austin Wintory, is a smorgasbord of music capturing the beauty and bleakness of Stoic's epic tale of Vikings and giants at the world's end. Of course, where hauntingly beautiful video game music goes Malukah must follow.

Malukah, who caught gamer's attention back in 2011 with her rendition of Skyrim's The Dragonborn Comes released a new video today featuring her and violinist Taylor Davis performing a medley of songs from The Banner Saga. The video, shot by filmmaker Landon Donoho, is flat-out just a brilliant piece of tribute to the game, capturing its look, feel and, of course, the sound to a tee. Put shortly, if you enjoyed The Banner Saga in the slightest, this should be on your must watch list.

Of course, if you haven't played The Banner Saga you should be making some time to do that. It's a great game and if you like RPGs, strategy titles or just epic fantasy stories, you're probably going to find something to love. And even if you don't like the game, still give the video a gander. Good music is good music no matter where it comes from after all.

As usual Melukah rocks it. I love that we have the internet these days and we can share this sort of stuff.

I've been watching Taylor's videos for years, she's brilliant. Malukah has the sort of voice that's perfect for these Nordic ballads, they are a pretty fantastic match. Enjoyed the music a lot, Banner Saga is a great game that I recommend to anyone. (Just look at my avatar.)

This is great. Seems fitting that I'm waiting for Jeremy Soule's The Northerner, which Malukah will also appear in.

As am I. Backed it the second I learned about and am eagerly awaiting my reward copy.

I really like it, just like I loved the game.
However, is it still a tribute when they made parts of the original soundtrack? :P
Or am I mixing things up?

Who cares?? Malukah sings like an angel(that she must've captured and learned its secrets to get that incredible voice)
