Nero Promotes New Album with Old School Beat 'Em Up

March 20, 2012 -

London based dub-step duo Nero have launched a "Live Rig" on their official website, which gives fans a chance to listen to their music while playing an 8-bit game aptly titled "NERO." The game, an 8-bit homage to Final Fight or Streets of Rage, lets players beat up various street thugs while listening to one of the groups many tunes.

Here's the intro text from the game:

"The year is 2808...

The world is a dangerous place, crime and corruption is widespread. To get away from the grim reality of society, many people are living within alternate realities. The most popular of these is named ‘Second Reality’.

However trouble has even spread there. To combat this, a special elite force is put together.

Their codename is Nero…
"

You can check out the game by visiting http://www.thisisnero.com/welcomereality. While you are there you can listen to several Nero tracks including "Guilt," "Reaching Out," "Departure," "Innocence," and more.

Re: Nero Promotes New Album with Old School Beat 'Em Up

I just got into Nero recently.  Normally I'm a Headbanger, but lately I've found myself really liking this new Dubstep music from both Nero and Skrillex.

Funny story of how Nero got on my radar.  I first heard them in, of all places, a strip club!  The girl selected the song "Guilt" from an automated jukebox.  I heard it and thought, "Who does this?  This is really cool!'  I later spent the next hour or so googling the lyrics I remembered until I finally found a Youtube video.  I "liked" them on my Facebook page immediately afterwards. smiley

Yeah, only I would pay more attention to the music more than the girl dancing in front of me.  But if the song's good and memorable, and the girl's an excellent dancer, then you have something!

That's not so much a homage as it is a direct rip of Streets of Rage 3.
