I don’t know when this happend. But apparently, Bardcore is a thing. If you search for bardcore or medieval cover on youtube, you find several artists convering modern songs in a medieval style.
To me, Hildegard von Blingin’ stands out in quality, execution, and discreet humor. Their name is a pun on Hildegard von Bingen.
Here are a few of their songs. Pumped up Kicks is currently my favorite one.
I’m a big fan of Italian horror film soundtracks from the 1970s and 80s. Fabio Frizzi is arguably one of the greatest composers of this era. Here is Islandrocks’ fantastic Disco Cover of the main theme for Zombi 2 (aka Zombie Flesh Eaters).
Compare it to Frizzi’s original track.
