Episode 05 – Black Matrix 00: Blind Listen 1 with Todd

Ed and Special Guest Todd Participate in the First Blind Listen VGM Soundtrack Episode: Black/ Matrix 00!

Today, The VGMbassy is proud to present a brand new type of episode format: the Blind Listen. On these shows, Ed and a guest VGMbassador will listen to the soundtrack from a game that they know absolutely nothing about, and try to figure out what kind of game it could be strictly based on what they hear. At the end of the show, all is revealed as Ed pulls back the shroud covering the game’s details! You, as a listener, can participate in three different ways: by playing along with the hosts and making your own theories, OR by becoming a Patreon Patron and submitting soundtracks for Blind Listen shows, OR by becoming a Patreon guest on a Blind Listen show and playing along with Ed on an episode!

Our soundtrack today is from the PS1 game “Black/Matrix 00.” It’s full of unique and amazing music, and keeps Ed and special guest Todd on their toes, guessing at the nature of each track, until the very end of the show. We hope you enjoy guessing along with them!

A huge thank you to Indira J (The Misadventures of Buddy and Friend, Sacrimony) for the amazing VGMbassy artwork and design, and to Trevin Hughes (aka chiptune composer Jredd) for the podcast theme song!

  1. I love the idea of “Blind Listen”, but it’s going to be hard to top the insanity of this OST haha. The variety is crazy and yet it still somehow all fit in the end.

  2. This was a really fun idea. Something with a soundtrack this diverse really feels like it could only be an RPG. I’ll shortly find out if I am correct.
