If you’ve played Elden Ring, you’re familiar with the strange occurrence that happens when you get to the game’s main menu and are somehow forced to sit at the screen for at least 30 seconds while listening to what can only be described as an extremely hype for the Elden Ring session of the day (or is it just me?).
It’s great music – orchestral, epic, and an awesome way to start the game every time you launch it. However, what if it was composed in a different style, perhaps as a symphonic metal song? Or maybe a lofi hip-hop track? Yeah, composer Alex Moukala did just that and more. In fact, Moukala has covered the main theme of Elden Ring in 15 different styles: Spanish Guitar, Nu-Disco, Symphonic Metal, Smooth Jazz, Lofi Hip-Hop, Darksynth, Movie Trailer, Piano Solo, Baroque (my favorite), Reggae, Big Room House, French House, Trap x Traditional Japanese (also possibly my favorite) and Orchestral.
As you can see in the video above, there isn’t a single style that Moukala remixes the Elden Ring theme that doesn’t work – if I booted the latest from From Software, which is great, but even better when playing with friends, and any one of them started playing, I would be just as excited as I am when I hear the default theme. If you like these remixes, you’re in luck because Moukala does it all the time. He has other “X Game In 15 Different Styles” videos, rewrites and rearrangements of music from video game trailers, music reviews, and more. His entire channel is great!
