WoW composer fronts Critical Hit, a new VGM cover band

"The game music scene can welcome a new VGM cover band into the fold, and this one, in the vein of Nobuo Uematsu’s Earthbound Papas and Akira Yamaoka’s Silent Hill Band, comes with a twist. The band is appropriately called Critical Hit, and is being spearheaded by none other than World of Warcraft co-composer Jason Hayes and managed by Michael Gluck, who some of you may know as Piano Squall.

Accompanying the two are several stand-out musicians that have been involved with the likes of The Annual Primetime Emmy’s, Cirque Du Soleil and American Idol, among others. The band’s first outing, “Critical Hit: Volume One,” will be comprised of twelve tracks from popular game music soundtracks like Tetris, Super Mario World, Final Fantasy X and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

The band also rotates eight musicians that vary from show to show–giving Critical Hit a diverse sound that can go from rock to classical." - Patrick Kulikowski (Culture, Jason Hayes, World of Warcraft)
