‘Blood-Starved Beast, a rock track composed, written and performed by Saahil Bhargava was released on Friday.
The song, which features 2D vector animation by Sanjna Krishnan, tells the story of a gamer stuck in a time loop.
The horror-themed song was inspired by the popular game “Bloodborne: Eerie.” The video takes a dark turn as the player loses their minds to let their determination and desperation prevail to get the better of a Lovecraftian monster.
Speaking about his track, Saahil said, “My latest song embraces my gamer side. Inspired by the horror game ‘Bloodborne’, Blood-Starved Beast is about gamer obsession and drive, with the thrill of battle only beaten by the overwhelming anger of defeat.
He continued, “This song’s music and lyrics explore the ‘horror’ elements of the dark, nightmarish environment, as the main protagonist struggles to navigate his way through an endless loop, much like a player stuck in a level Blood-Starved Beast has been brewing for a long time, so I’m excited to finally release it.
Saahil concluded by saying, “I’m even more excited to see how players react to a song that should be extremely relatable, both nostalgic and sigh-inducing. Raise your glass to all the broken controllers, cracked TVs and tears shed over games like ‘Bloodborne’”.
Saahil, who earned two nominations at the prestigious Los Angeles Shorts International Film Festival last year, is an avid gamer himself. He was recently invited to perform at the final of the Penta Amateur League, an esports tournament. “Blood Starved Beast” is available on all streaming platforms.
