If you needed one last moment of inspiration to pick up Skyrim this Friday, then the Skyrim rap that is currently doing the rounds on the net will probably suit your tastes delightfully. The rap itself is great, but the video is packaged up like a game trailer which Bethesda would be proud of.
We’re guessing that many Skyrim fans would have already seen this, but for those who haven’t yet, we can’t pass up the opportunity to tell you how good this video is. The rap, perfomed by Dan Bull is winning fans all over, perhaps even those who aren’t usually a fan of rap music either. Talking of fans, Bethesda has already thrown their support to the rap as well, giving you a further indication of how good it really is. Bethesda’s Pete Hines put this on Twitter recently:
”@Crazy_Electrum Yes, I did see the Skyrim rap. Very cool.”
The rap is performed over the Skyrim theme tune that we all know and love, and in the background we also see plenty of gameplay that has previously been teased in previous footage of the game. In our opinion, the best lines of the rap are towards the middle section of the clip where we hear Bull say:
”In the name of the Nords I pray to the lords, You all get a taste of the blade of my sword, I’m taking on hordes of my enemies, I face them with hordes of weaponry”
Now we’re pleased to say that if you really like the Skyrim rap, you can download it for your personal listening pleasure later on. You’ll find the download link here, courtesy of Gamepro. If you want to find out more about Dan Bull and here some of his other raps, you can follow him on Twitter here. He’s done a rap for the recent Grand Theft Auto V trailer which is pretty good too, so don’t forget to check that out as well.
With just days to go, the excitement is almost unbearable. For those of you that already have a copy, does Skyrim really justify the immense hype for the game after Oblivion?
