Simon Swerwer is the best - you should listen to him too
« on: July 15, 2016, 10:36:00 am »

I listen to him all the time at SoundCloud. He makes awesome dwarven music. My favorite is Danger Room - with authentic dwarven lyrics!

When I get bored of Dwarf Fortress, it's Swerwer's music that brings me back. Usually to make a tavern and "listen" to the dwarves singing, as I listen to Swerwer singing!

I knew only Tankard Basher (sang along to that one more than a few times), but I recently learned that there were more. I'm going to give those a try, now! Thanks for reminding me :)

why kill elves if you could torture them, make them betray their friends, denounce their "force", make them watch trees being chopped down, feed them meat and throw them in magma as a sacrifice for almighty Armok?

Hello,

I know it's a quite old topic, but...

Do any of you know if Simon Swerwer is still active ? I tried to track him of internet, but without success. Did he really only make 2 dwarf albums to then disappear forever ?

Why, it does seem to be the case.

You might want to find somewhere else to rehost your songs; SoundCloud is going under.

Ugh, I know. I literally found out today, and I paid for a new subscription last week. Happy times.

I just put all the SoundCloud ones on YouTube though, if any of you frequent that place.

EDIT: Thanks for the heads-up, btw!

Yeah his music captures the atmosphere of Dwarf Fortress perfectly. They're on the default Soundsense version iirc.
