Over the past couple of days Black Screen Records have been posting teasers about their third release on Twitter, and today they finally confirmed that they will be releasing Eirik Suhrke’s soundtrack to Downwell on vinyl.
The release comes on 180g red vinyl and includes a 12″ screen print and brand new artwork by Mushbuh. It also includes a digital download for the album.
The game was developed by Dingaling and the soundtrack was composed by Widdly 2 Diddly – both which are aliases for Austin Jorgensen. The release comes in 3 different variants – a special edition with 2LP picture discs that includes an enamel pin and an embroidered character patch, a regular 2LP picture disc version and a 2LP version with one disc on red/black split and the other on blue/black split color vinyl. The packaging for all three versions are identical and features brand new artwork by Karsten Schreurs (see below).
The soundtrack is priced at $50 for the special edition, $40 for the picture disc, and $35 for the colored version. It is scheduled to release on early October, 2016.
Very little detail on this, but it’s confirmed in the music video description to David Earl’s track “Methuselah” on YouTube that the soundtrack to Double Fine’s Headlander will be given a vinyl release:
“‘Methuselah’ from the Headlander soundtrack by David Earl, available now on Steam, coming soon on vinyl!”
No word on what label will release it (or if Double Fine will handle it themselves like they’ve done with Brütal Legend and Dropchord in the past) or when it’s scheduled to come out other than “soon”. I will update this post when more info is out, but in the meantime you can enjoy said music video below:
There will be 2 variants available. One will be a 3LP picture disc with rims from the game. This version is limited to 1000 copies. The other will be on colored vinyl with each disc in a different marbled color variant. A digital download for the soundtrack will be provided upon ordering.
The artwork for this release is done by Dan Bronsema and the release is housed in a triple gatefold
Ultra Combo – the official Killer Instinct website – have announced that the soundtrack to the first Killer Instinct game will be released on vinyl via iam8bit. The soundtrack is composed by Robin Beanland and Graeme Norgate and is titled Killer Cuts.
There will be three different versions of the soundtrack – one on Sabrewulf purple vinyl, one on Spinal clear vinyl, and a limited edition Fulgore green vinyl version. What’s special about the Fulgore version is that it will only be for sale during the EVO weekend (July 15-17) and after that it will be sold out forever. Additionally, people who purchase the Fulgore variant are also entered in a draw to win the custom-made Fulgore puppet used for the cover art. A download code for the digital soundtrack is included as well.
The artwork on these is done by Cory Schmitz, Ben Sifel, Austin James & Seth Cuddeback, while the puppets for the artwork has been done by Chelsea Bayouth.
As a nice little touch the records end in a locked groove on side A which will play the “c-c-c-combo breaker” shout.
Black Screen Records teased this soundtrack a while back by posting a sound clip on social media of them playing the test pressing, but now the official announcement is out – Black Screen Records are releasing Joris de Man’s Velocity 2X soundtrack on vinyl.
The release will come on 2LP 180g vinyl with one disc on solid neon pink vinyl and the other on solid blue vinyl. The release also comes with an A2 poster with artwork from the game and an instant MP3 download of the digital soundtrack.
But that’s not all – if you’re feeling adventurous you can also preorder a mystery bundle containing the Velocity 2X soundtrack + the next 3 soundtracks from Black Screen Records. This bundle is €80 and is slightly cheaper than buying the albums individually. On the downside they won’t ship out until November. The mystery bundle can be preordered here.
It had previously been announced that we’d be getting some Night Striker music on vinyl and it looks like this is the release for that. In addition, this compilation will also feature music from the games Metal Black and Elevator Action Returns.
There are no specifics on a tracklist (other than what can be seen on the mockup label) and it appears that a solid blue color variant will be available.
No specific news on a release date either, but the mockup image was followed by the words “Coming very, very soon”, so I suspect we’ll be hearing more soon. I’ll update this post when more is announced.
The release will feature brand new artwork from Hitoshi Ariga who have previously done artwork for Pokémon and Mega Man. The artwork have not been announced yet, but Brave Wave have released a sketch on their announcement page.
There’s no preorder or release date yet, but Brave Wave encourages people to sign up to preorder news on their site.
UPDATE: Brave Wave have answered some questions regarding this release over on NeoGAF. The release will feature 43 tracks which have been chosen and adjusted by Jake Kaufman for this release.
In addition, they plan on sending out the release date two weeks prior to shipping. So there will not be a long wait between ordering and receiving the release.
