Enter the Velvet Room to listen to one of the best and most memorable songs from Atlus' cult favorite SMT: Persona series. Now with even more metal \m/!

"One of my favorite things to do with a song when it is slow is speed it up," Calderone said of this cover. "The actual aria is very Mozart-y which I love but just like the remix, when you're fighting a boss (for me at least), I need some fast tunes jamming. The melody though is just beautiful. So beautiful that if I had a voice that could pull off an aria, you could have bet that I would have sung on this track. Haha."

Seriously though, as one of the key themes in the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series, 'Aria of the Soul' may not appear to lend itself to a metalized version at first, but we think after you give it a listen, you'll be pleasantly surprised at just how well it translates.
