Pokemon – Lavender Town Metal Cover

Lavender Town Art

Guitarist Thomas Rakowitz, a.k.a. “Dr. Rockyowitz” on YouTube, releases a lot of great music, but the stuff that really strikes a chord with me personally are his video game covers. Check out his creepy doom metal cover of the Lavender Town theme from Pokemon Red and Blue right here: https://soundcloud.com/rockyowitz/lavender-town-doom-demo

You can find Thomas on YouTube, as well as in a few tracks of IGN editor Brian Altano’s album Misanthrope.

About the author:

When Alex was young, he used to cry whenever his parents tried to hand him a game controller. Having complete control over the life of a red-clad Italian plumber was just too daunting to him. Nowadays, he only cries when the controller’s taken away.

Hailing from the frigid tundras of Canada, Alex plays video games not only to entertain himself, but also as a source of warmth to get him through the winter. He loves all genres of video games, the more difficult the better. Some of his current favourites include Citizens of Earth, Super Smash Bros. and Monster Hunter.
