Singer Smooth McGroove Slays The Abyss Watchers' Theme From Dark Souls III

by Joe Buchholz on Apr 13, 2016 at 07:50 AM

Smooth McGroove is best known for his popular YouTube videos where he pieces together elaborate a cappella renditions of video game songs. Today, he tackled the theme of Dark Souls III’s challenging Abyss Watchers.

Dark Souls III’s soundtrack lends itself well to McGroove’s style of performance with its vocal-heavy orchestral arrangements. If you want to hear the original track, you can watch us take on Abyss Watchers near the end of the seventh episode of our Dark Souls III playthrough.

This isn’t the first time that Smooth McGroove has covered Dark Souls, and if you’re curious about McGroove’s process and how he turned his love of video game music into a full time job, you can read our feature on him here. Also, be sure to check out more of McGroove's work on his YouTube channel.
