Well in case you didn't, one of the first things I revealed was the official release of

songs (Legend of Mario through Dark Pit) to sound more like late 2015 songs.

The album is completely free and can be downloaded either here or on BandCamp.

Also, the first few hundred people to download the album on BandCamp will get an
additional three 2016 remasters of Decisive Battle (FFVI), Beggining / Vampire Killer,
and Mega Man X Maverick Medley!

Website updating!
I've started the transition into 2016 mode for the site (in other words, adding the 2016
button to all pages, haha), I'm about halfway done but I need to get some sleep! I'll
be finishing the rest in the morning, so if you see that not all the pages don't have the 2016
button, just bear with me. xD

You did hear the 2016 GaMetal premiere, ASGORE, right? Well if not, here it is, and if you
did, here it is again!


January 11th, 2016
A belated Happy New Year!
Hey everybody, and even though I'm a bit late, Happy New Year to you!

So I've been spending the past few weeks working on and completing the SNES Medley,
and moving into a new place, so I was really pressed for time to do much else. I'm
getting caught up now and today have added the page for the latest 2 songs, Burning
Town
and SNES Medley. I'll also have the first song of 2016 complete very, very
soon, so keep your eyes and ears out.

Thanks as always for your patience and prepare for an even more awesome year of
GaMetal!

Patreon, and the GaMedley!
GaMetal #100 has arrived, but first, I want to tell you about the latest way to support
GaMetal: Patreon!

In short, Patreon lets you donate a small amount for each song/video that is released
in exchange for some cool rewards, you can also set a max amount to donate per
month, so you don't end up overspending in case I decide to release 10 songs in a month
(GaMetal May Madness for example). You can get more info on my Patreon site here.
It'd mean the world to me if you'd check it out and consider becoming a Patron!

In other important news, GaMetal #100 has arrived! It's called GaMedley and is a
tribute to some of gamings most iconic theme songs. Check it out!


 

July 1st, 2015

will soon be added, and as mentioned a few months ago, the 2009, 2010, and 2011/12
sections will be combined into one. The change should roll out in a few days or so!


December 31, 2014
This is GaMetal???
A bit late posting this, but the latest GaMetal song was one I had been wanting
to do for quite a while: Zoness from Star Fox 64!

I will have the downloads for Zoness, Decisive Battle, the Shadow and SF64 Main
Theme acoustic shorts up shortly.

Tonight the last GaMetal song of the year will be unveiled. What will it be? Well, some
intelligent individuals have already figured it out. Maybe you should look into the last
video a little more closely...


December 9, 2014
Boss Battle time! Also, a new way to donate!
It's time again for a Final Fantasy VI song: the highly requested Decisive Battle!

And for those feeling generous out there, there is a new way to donate! Youtube
now has a new Fan Funding feature that allows you to donate to a channel via Google
Wallet. You can find the 'Support' button on the JonnyAtma Channel Page. You can
visit the Donate page for more details. Thanks as always for your continued support!


December 3, 2014
Time for more Castlevania, and OCRemix!
Hey everyone! Sorry about the slow website updating lately, I get pretty busy around this
time of the year in the real world. The song page for the latest GaMetal song,
Beginning / Vampire Killer, is now up!

You can also snag the Piano short of Bloody Tears found at the end of the video in
the Extra section.

Also, I'm very pleased to announce that GaMetal has made it's way onto OCRemix!
The first song up, Food Frenzy, which you probably know as Gourmet Race 2014,
was the featured Thanksgiving song. I'll be submitting some more songs there (and who
knows, maybe an OCRemix exclusive song or 2), so keep your eyes and ears out. It's an
honor to be among the many talented creators of the OCRemix community, thanks
guys!


November 14, 2014
La Muwhata?

villain: Dancing Mad from FF6!


September 8, 2014
Future Plans: 1st Edition
Most of my news section is just 'check out the new song!' so I'm going to come at you
with something a bit different this time: an update on what's going on in the GaMetal
world, and plans for some site changes as we head into the year 2015.

I've been elated with how this year has been going so far in almost every aspect: Sound
quality keeps getting better (especially, imo, with the last 2 songs), and popularity is
steadily increasing. The Youtube channel is now officially at 4,000 subscribers,
surpassing the 3k I had before what we'll call the Atma-Era (2013-present). It may be
small time compared to the more popular people out there, but we had to crawl before
we could walk, and I feel like now we're walking. There are many more things I could be
doing to help increase GaMetal awareness, and I'm currently working on those things now
and will focus more on doing so from now on.

I have made some small design tweaks to a few things. My channel icon/avatar on various
sites has been changed to something I feel is a bit less cheesy, and a better
representation of GaMetal. The GaMetal logo, if you haven't noticed yet, has also
had a small and actually pretty simple redesign (it's not everywhere yet, but you can see
it in the header above [update 9/27: well, it was supposed to be, but it's having some
issues showing for some reason
]), giving it a more modern, 3d look.

Lastly, with 2015 approaching, I've been making some considerations in regards to the
site. You can see above I don't really have the space to add a 2015 button. Earlier I
mentioned that the sound quality of current songs has been getting better. Well, when I
go back and listen to my older stuff, I can't help but cringe a little bit, and I'm sure many
other people feel the same way. I'm not going to get rid of all the old tracks, but I will be
combining the 2009, 2010, and possibly the 2011-2012 section into one large section,
dedicated to the Pre-Atma Era of GaMetal. No decision as to what this section will
officially be titled yet.

The journey continues and we shall keep on trudging forward! By the way: GaMetal
song #75 is coming up, and I've decided to get to one of my favorite VG songs of all time.
Till then!


September 7, 2014
GREEEEEEEEEN!
The latest GaMetal song has made it's way to Youtube: enjoy the highly anticipated
The Ultimate Show from Super Paper Mario!


August 23rd, 2014

July 14, 2014
Sonic Medley!

I haven't done a Sonic song since 2011 and was bouncing around a few ideas
on which one to do next. So I decided it'd be fun to get you fans involved again to
put together another great fan medley, a la Mega Man Mega Medley and
NES Medley #2.

Rules (Only 2 for now)

1. One entry per person
2. Song must be from a Sonic game (any generation)

Ten entries will be chosen at random via RandomPicker. A bonus 11th song will be
chosen as the acoustic outro for the Youtube video!

To submit your entry, tweet your song or reply to my tweet on Twitter with
#gametalsonic. If you don't have #gametalsonic, there's a chance I might not see it!

Entries will end Tuesday night at midnight, and the drawing will be on Wednesday (the
16th) at around 5:00 pm American Central Time. Late entries between Midnight and
the drawing will still be entered, but I can't guarantee they will be seen before the
drawing is set.

Let's put together another good one!


July 9, 2014

version
!


May 7, 2014

Happy Easter! Today the Easter Bunny has brought us a special treat: the much
anticipated NES Medley #2.


April 1, 2014
NES Medley #2 list
The drawing, which can be seen at here at RandomPicker, has been completed.
The following songs will be a part of the next GaMetal song: NES Medley #2

(in no particular order)

2. Good Morning (Gimmick!)
3. Moon Theme (Ducktales)
4. Gemini Man (Megaman 3)
5. Aporia (Gimmick!)
6. Chaos Shrine (Final Fantasy I)
7. Overworld (Super Mario Brothers 2)

9. Werewolf Theme (Werewolf: The Last Warrior)
10. Unbreakable Determination [aka Basilisk Mine Field] (Ninja Gaiden)
Bonus Acoustic Video-Outro: Main Theme (Balloon Fight)

It looks like this is gonna be a good one, time for me to get to work!



March 31, 2014
The time has come: NES Medley #2
In 2009, I created NES Medley #1. It flopped, and is one of the least
popular GaMetal songs, with the likes of Tecmo World Wrestling.

So, since I obviously suck at choosing songs for an NES Medley, I turn to you, the fans,
to help make GaMetal history and piece together an all-new 10 song NES Medley!

Rules and stuff:

1. Must be a song from an NES title.
2. One entry per person
3. No songs I've done from 2012-2014 (That would be any NES songs from the Mega
Man Mega Medley, Bloody Tears, Hyrule Temple, and Punch-Out!)

Ten entries will be chosen at random to determine which will appear in NES Medley #2.
An 11th entry will also be chosen to determine the acoustic outro song!

To submit your entry, tweet your song or reply to my tweet on Twitter with
#gametalnesmedley2 today (March 31).

Entries end at 12:00 midnight USA Pacific time, and the drawing will be tomorrow.
Let's do it!


March 30, 2014
Look out for those mushrooms.. they'll get you.

The 2014 page is in place, which also contains the page for
the latest song, Meridian Dance.

The new Extras page is finished, which contains the much sought-after Acoustic Shorts
found at the end of some GaMetal Youtube videos, as well as the GaMetal Guy sprite
sheet and links to the GaMetal Youtube and Newgrounds page, and my Twitter. More
will likely be added to this page in the future.

Lastly, I have added a donation page. I've had requests for it, so I've finally brought it to
fruition. If you'd like to show additional support for GaMetal, consider a small donation;
it would be greatly appreciated! :)


February 3, 2014
Website Screwiness
The site might look a little messed up in some spots for the next couple of days while I
update things, apologies for the inconvenience.


February 1, 2014
Enter 2014
I may be a month late, but happy new year! The first GaMetal song of the year has

also going to be adding a couple of other new pages to the site as well, so stay tuned for
that.

For now, enjoy the latest video for the aforementioned Meridian Dance:

Last 2013 Song!
Once again, sorry for the wait! December is always pretty hectic for me so I don't have

Happy Halloween!
Happy Halloween from your friend Jonny Atma. To commerate this special occasion,
I bring to you this brand new GaMetal song: Bloody Tears from the Castlevania series!


September 25, 2013
It's finally here!
Welcome to the new homepage for GaMetal here at JonnyAtma.com! I feel this is a
DRASTIC improvement over the old website, which looked like it was made in the early
2000's, mostly cause, well, I'm not exactly a pro web designer.

You can now find every single officially released GaMetal song catagorized by their
release year, each with an in-depth description not written anywhere else. So if you're
interested in how I went about recording a certain song, you can read all about it!

I still plan on adding a few things so there is more to come. If you find any errors on
the site (I'm sure there are at least a few), please Tweet me @JonnyAtma or send me
an email at Jonny@JonnyAtma.com so I can fix it. I'm not perfect.

So, go have fun and explore, and if you haven't heard the latest GaMetal song yet,
here it is: Pokey Means Business!


Aug 23, 2013
Site work begins
After what seems like forever, I have finally begun work on the new JonnyAtma.com,
