about

“This is definitely a very exciting opportunity for The Blast Processors as it's the first time we're covering a game that wasn’t released for a SEGA console.
We thought long and hard about what game’s soundtrack would work with our general sound, and we kept coming back to Killer Instinct.
KI: Gold was one of those games that I absolutely loved on the N64. I was a fighting game fanatic, and it delivered on pretty much everything I wanted. From a rocking Robin Beanland-composed soundtrack to gorgeous (for the time) graphics and the over-the-top announcer, it definitely left an indelible impression on me. So, for the celebration of the N64’s 20th anniversary, we present to you our very own ULTRA COMBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO: ‘Embrace the Urge’!”

lyrics

The killers own this street tonight
Step aside unless you’re asking for a fight
A wrong move and you’re out of time
Before you know it your life is on the line

I should have taken my own advice
They’re gonna make me pay the price
I’ve got no choice time to turn the tide
Lose control to the monster deep inside

When the odds are stacked against you
When your back’s against the wall
A fire raging deep inside you
Just let the instinct take control

The gloves come off; the battle turns
Time to face the punishments they’ve earned
It’s you or them; they’ve set the stage
Don’t hold back your primal rage

A combination of hate and fear
Time’s stopped; their end is near
You’ve got no choice it’s time to purge
You can’t turn back just embrace the urge

When the odds are stacked against you
When your back’s against the wall
A fire raging deep inside you
Just let the instinct take control

The weak die young
The strong survive
The Instinct makes me feel alive

When the odds are stacked against you
When your back’s against the wall
A fire raging deep inside you
Just let the instinct take control
