Battle Bards Episode 125: Archlord

July 25, 2018

A new episode of Battle Bards is up!

The Battle Bards are always on the prowl for overlooked soundtracks from overlooked MMORPGs, and this week, they might have found a new one to share. Meet Archlord, a Korean title from 2005 that made very little waves in the west. Yet the music is pretty good and worthy of a listen. If you like epic high fantasy, then you’re going to love today’s episode!
