Super Metroid Symphony

Monday, 18 March 2013 at 04:12 GMT

This Tuesday (19th March - tomorrow!), a new Super Metroid tribute album arrives on iTunes. Titled Super Metroid Symphony by artist Blake Robinson, this album aims to faithfully recreate the entire in-game Super Metroid soundtrack using a synthetic orchestra. The result sounds like a live orchestra, but is built entirely digitally.

If Nintendo ever decided to remake Super Metroid in high definition with an orchestrated soundtrack (or had included more classic themes orchestrated in Metroid: Other M), this tribute is a great intepretation of what we might hear. There's been many covers made for Super Metroid's music over the years, and it's great to have a fresh and faithful album completely orchestrated (at least digitally). Visit Blake's official website for more details and previews.
