Title - 'Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie'
Artist - Bear McCreary

Released digitally by Sparks & Shadows on September 2nd, 'Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie' features all new, original music from Emmy Award-winning composer, Bear McCreary. Based on the popular Angry video Game Nerd web series, in addition to writing the original music, McCreary remixed two of the songs for the album, 'Sacred Ground of the Golden Turd' and 'The Angry Video Game Nerd Theme Song.'.

If you were not aware, the film is inspired by the famous Atari video game burial of 1982. Atari produced a game based on the biggest blockbuster of that year, 'E.T.' and rushed it to meet the deadline for the Christmas season. It was a commercial failure and millions of unsold game cartridges were buried in a desert landfill in Alamogordo, New Mexico! Coincidentally, it's not too far from Roswell, the landing site of a different kind of E.T.!

Anyway, moving on and these 20 tracks perfectly combine a full symphonic orchestra, heavy metal rhythm section and custom sampled synthesis from NES, Super Nintendo and SEGA Genesis hardware. Living out all his musical fantasies, McCreary combines influences from his favorite video games and flm composers that inspired him when he was a kid.
