Lizardking

Take a trip back in time, and listen to some of the work of Gustaf Grefberg (Lizardking).

Lizardking started, as many others, on the Commodore 64. At some point in time he went, from the 8- and 16-bit home computers, to the 32/64 bit personal computer (PC).

Most of the songs I’ve got from The Mod Archive and they are in the XM file format, which is from the Fasttracker 2. I have enclosed some songs of Lizardking, from sources in MOD, S3M and XM format.

The song ‘Claustrophobia’ is super cool and characterize the ‘Doskpop’ style, as he called it. The ‘Doskpop intro’ are a slow version of Claustrophobia, but in only 4 channels (MOD).

About the Amiga files

All Amiga files was downloaded from various sites on the internet (credited as needed), as original MOD, XM and other formats, then exported to WAV file format with ‘WinAmp‘ or ‘Deli Player‘.

WAV files was then cut to appropriate length and converted to MP3 with ‘Audacity‘, using either a ‘Fraunhofer‘ or ‘LAMEcodec, at 128 kbps for some of the early music files and 256 kbps for the later music files.
