Eminence rated # 1 video games music video clip on YouTube

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

GamerNode have rated Eminence’s Metal Gear Solid music video as the number 1 music cover video available on YouTube today.

GamerNode Editor-in-Chief, Brendon Lindsey, who performed a survey of online game music videos said of Eminence’s performance,“there is no video game cover on the Internet that tops this one, in my opinion. Take your One-Winged Angels and Zelda Medleys; push aside your Shadow of the Colossi and Vagrant Stories. This has everything done right, and then some.”

“Intermixed with awesome footage, featuring a sweet guitar, and not missing a beat, this is the perfect song to remind you that MGS4 is still a ways off, and you're forced to wait to see how it ends. Until then, just rip the sound from this video and put it on repeat. It's what I'm doing,” he concluded.

Visit YouTube to view Eminence’s Metal Gear Solid performance and decide for yourself whether you think the ranking is worthy or not!

Hot on the trail of the very successful Eminence quintet‘Destiny Reunion’ concert tour, which included performances in Japan, at Otakon in the USA and in Sydney and Melbourne, Eminence are back in the studio preparing for more concerts and album releases. Stay tuned!

About Eminence Symphony Orchestra

Eminence Symphony Orchestra was established in 2003 by renowned violin virtuoso, Hiroaki Yura. Since then, Eminence has become known for their annual‘A Night in Fantasia’ events, in addition to other concerts and recordings for games, anime and films.

Eminence Symphony Orchestra comprises 60 elite musicians under the conductorship of Philip Chu. Eminence’s team of musicians have had experience with a large number of established Symphony Orchestras, such as the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Australian Opera

and Ballet Orchestra, Queensland Orchestra, Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, Jeunesses Musicales World Orchestra and Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra.

Many Eminence musicians have also performed as international soloists with major orchestras around the world, including the Japan Philharmonic Orchestra, all major Chinese Eastern Coast Orchestras, all major Australian Orchestras and major USA Orchestras.

Eminence aims to revitalise the current state of Australian orchestras and achieve a following across all demographics, encouraging a wider appreciation of symphonic music in Australia. Eminence is the most experienced orchestra in the world dedicated to gaming and anime music.

What sets the Eminence Symphony Orchestra apart from others?

Classical music should not be left to languish in dusty corners or to be appreciated only by an older demographic. It needs to find a new face and be aggressively showcased into expanded genres in order to capture a larger audience.

Eminence wants to challenge the‘image’ of orchestral music, by aligning it with the things that are more familiar to younger audiences, such as computer games. Eminence’s musicians want young people to really‘hear’ orchestral music, to believe in the strength of music and connect with it.

This is the Silverchair of Classical!
