It’s been teased for a long, long time, but it is finally here. One Run Records’ debut release Metroid Resynthesized is in stock and ready to order. It is an analog synthesizer arrangement album of the soundtrack to Metroid.
The release is a single LP on black and red swirl vinyl with white and green “Metroid Larve” splatter cut at 45RPM. It will come in a single pocket jacket with UV spot gloss print featuring artwork by Ben Shuar. It also comes with an art insert.
It was originally announced via an Indiegogo campaign from late last year, but now it’s gotten a proper announcement from Enjoy The Toons Records and a release date.
The 8-Bit Time Paradox is an arrangement album managed in large part by Giovanni Rotondo. It contains arrangements of music from Metroid, Breath Of The Wild, Final Fantasy VII, Ocarina Of Time, Mega Man, Titanfall 2, Shovel Knight, and Battlefield 1. The tracks are performed by several artists known for their video game music arrangements on Youtube and elsewhere on the internet.
The release will be a single LP housed in a GameBoy game-inspired single pocket jacket with art by Jeff Langevin. It will be available in three color variants – “cartridge” grey, “boss battle” purple-in-clear with white splatter, and “time paradox” purple smoke. The two former are limited to 200 copies each and the latter 100 copies.
The release is priced at $21 through Enjoy The Toons Records, and £23 through Giovanni Rotondo’s Bandcamp.
