Descendants of Erdrick
Descendants of Erdrick is a progressive/metal video game tribute band from Austin, Texas, specializing in (but not limited to) covers of "epic" role-playing/adventure genre games. The band is composed of guitarist/vocalist/front-woman Amanda Lepre, her co-guitarist Glenn Elliott (also known as Omigadrive), synth-pop keyboardist Emily Thompson, and a progressive-metal/jazz influenced rhythm section featuring bassist Thad Stevens and drummer Jim Watson.
Their 2014 album, Advent, is a tribute to RPG/Adventure styled games, and features tracks from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Dragon Warrior, Actraiser, Secret of Mana, and other classics.
In true spirit of the genre, each arrangement of songs is aimed at telling a story, often using sound effects, vocals, and visuals alongside the instrumentals to establish a mood.
