"Bard: Let's see here... Oh, you found "La Danse Macabre"! "Dead crowd tonight," says I. Lesson learned: Never crack jokes in a graveyard. Never ever."


  • La Danse Macabre roughly translates to "The Dance of the Dead" in French. Danse Macabre is an artistic genre of late-medieval allegory on the universality of death: no matter one's station in life, the Dance of Death unites all. The Danse Macabre consists of the dead or personified Death summoning representatives from all walks of life to dance along to the grave.
  • This was one of the 4 tracks remixed and used in Just Shapes and Beats' Just Shovels and Knights update.
