MAX LVL Radio: Godzilla – Bear McCreary feat. Serj Tankian

Warner Bros. Pictures has given us a small glimpse of what to expect from the upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters soundtrack, and it’s quite possibly one of the most absurd covers I have ever heard. Film composer Bear McCreary composed the track with System of a Down lead singer, Serj Tankian, handling vocals in the cover of Blue Oyster Cult’s classic love letter to the king of kaiju. MAX LVL is a curated selection of single songs currently available on the official Ph LEVEL Spotify playlist. Continue reading MAX LVL Radio: Godzilla – Bear McCreary feat. Serj Tankian

MAX LVL Radio: Megalo Box OST

This week, I both started and finished MEGALO BOX, and it was an incredible update of the original Ashita No Joe manga and anime on its 50th Anniversary.

MAX LVL is a curated selection of single songs currently available on the official Ph LEVEL Spotify playlist. Continue reading MAX LVL Radio: Megalo Box OST

MAX LVL Radio: Legends Never Die – Against The Current

It’s been a while since our last official installment of MAX LVL Radio, so I figured I would share my latest addiction: the theme from League of Legends Worlds Championship 2017, Legends Never Die by Against The Current. It’s a fantastic, epic song that really drives home the gravity of that tournament, and gets you pumped for whatever you’re getting ready for. MAX LVL is a curated selection of single songs currently available on the official Ph LEVEL Spotify playlist. Continue reading MAX LVL Radio: Legends Never Die – Against The Current
