Andrew Fleming, the drummer of Islander and maker of excellent drum cover videos of video game songs, is back with his latest—and it’s all about Overwatch.
Fleming takes Overwatch’s mostly serene, piano-filled «Hollywood» track and dials up the intensity with double-bass, fills galore, and open hi-hat. It’s quite great.
The video caught the attention of Overwatch developer Blizzard. The official Overwatch Twitter account re-tweeted Fleming’s video and congratulated him with a nice animated GIF of J.K. Simmons from the music movie Whiplash.
Fleming has posted many video game drum covers in the past. Before this, he crushed the Pokemon Red/Blue music and the «Battle Theme» from 2001’s Final Fantasy X. In 2016, he performed a rippin’ Sonic «Green Hill Zone» drum cover, and before that he nailed the awesome Destiny drum cover.
