This week we bring you music from a short-lived company with strong roots in the Amiga demo-scene called Zyrinx. Beginning on Sega’s 16bit hardware, they set out to push the limits of the Genesis and Mega Drive further than other developers had done. With their custom sound driver, incredible visual accomplishments and the launch of composer Jesper Kyd’s career, they proved the power of hard work and innovative thinking.

Even though they only produced 3 games in there short 6 year lifespan, mostly unnoticed by the gaming world, we felt that Zyrinx and its games shouldn’t be forgotten and deserve a deeper look. So enjoy the music of Sub-Terrania, Red Zone and Scorcher and let us know your thoughts about this music heavy episode.
