Music Friday: Death by Glamour

Hello! Let’s all tread together the treacherous path of the final day of the work week joined by some great music!

It’s Friday! The weekend approaches and hype can only get higher with a song like Undertale‘s Death by Glamour! I don’t mean the eternal struggle of a FFXIV player looking for the best thing to wear, but the theme from the boss battle against Mettaton Ex.

A homicidal robot that also doubles as the host of the underground’s most popular TV show, Mettaton was created by Dr. Alphys. At first Mettaton’s intentions were a ruse – a plan by Alphys to “save” the player from the robot’s “dangerous” antics, thus appearing as a hero to us. However, Mettaton plans to really kill you in order to take your soul, leave the underground, and become famous on the surface. Upon defeat, it decides to stay underground, fulfilling its role as an entertainer for the monster masses

Mettaton’s many different animations during battle. Yes, he just moves like that for the whole fight. It’s odd. – GIF from Tumblr.

I know I already mentioned Death by Glamour in my Top Tracks of 2015 post, but I’ll be damned if it isn’t a great track. Maybe one of these days I’ll go with the theme for the final battle… there will be spoilers!
