How do you make music to match the greatest sonic myth of them all?

Or create pop music for an imaginary world? Or an album that sounds like Massive Attack covering Lead Belly? You’d have to ask Darren Korb, the rocker, Rock Band(TM) master and head composer for indie darlings Supergiant Games. Supergiant gained critical acclaim through the decade with video games like Bastion, Transistor and the soon to be released Hades. The gameplay was uniformly stelar, but the emotional hook always came from Korb’s tunes. So, listen to our interview with Korb and see why he’s the best of the 10s.

But it takes place in hell, so I figure you have to have some metal in hell.
