about

Pikachu is known for being able to electrocute just about anything into oblivion, but this time he’s got his work cut out for him. Trapped in the slippery, frozen depths of this cavern, how will Pikachu defeat Shovel Knight, the all-metal stalwart? If Thunderbolt fails him, perhaps the cuddly, yellow mascot will lay down some sludgy ostinatos…

Pokemon Gold and Silver were only the second games in the illustrious and decorated series we know today. Their aesthetic was heavily inspired by the architecture and theology of an older, more traditional Japan. Much of the music was composed to follow this theme, however this is one track that steps out of line and rocks a bit. This song first appears in an area called Dark Cave, but we chose to amplify the shrill, steely tonal palette of the Ice Path where this theme plays later. The dungeon music in early Pokemon titles is very menacing--an impressive mood to be able to evoke with such limited Game Boy hardware.
