If you’ve played Elden Ring, then you’re familiar with the strange event that happens when you get to the main menu of the game and you’re somehow forced to sit on the screen for at least 30 seconds while listening to what can only be described as an extreme hypestart. on today’s Elden Ring pass (or is it just me?).
It’s a great song – orchestral, epic and a great way to start the game every time you start it. But what if it was composed in a different style, perhaps like a symphonic metal song? Or maybe a lofi-hip-hop song? Well, composer Alex Moukala have done just that and more. In fact, Moukala covered the main theme of the Fire Ring in 15 different styles: Spanish Guitar, Nu-Disco, Symphonic Metal, Smooth Jazz, Lofi Hip-Hop, Darksynth, Movie Trailer, Piano Solo, Baroque (my personal favorite), Reggae, Big Room House, French House, Trap x Traditional Japanese (also possibly my favorite) and Orchestral.
As you can see in the video above, there is not a single style that Moukala remixes Elden Ring’s theme to that does not work – if I started From Software’s latest, which is good but even better when playing with friends, and one of these started when I play, I would be as excited as I am when I hear the standard theme. If you like these remixes, you’re in luck because Moukala does this all the time. He has other “X Game In 15 Different Styles” videos, rewrites and rearrangements of video game trailer music, music analysis and more. His whole channel is great!

Check out this story about how someone used a modded Fisher-Price baby controller to play the Fire Ring on a PC after that.
