Alien Storm and Alien Soldier to be released by Data Discs

Data Discs have been quiet for some time, but are now back with new vinyl releases for two Mega Drive soundtracks at once – the beat ’em up/shooter Alien Storm and the side scrolling run-and-gun Alien Soldier.

Alien Storm will be a single 180g LP cut at 45RPM. It will be available in three different color variants – a limited edition “seafoam” green translucent with “slime” green and brown splatter variant, a “slime” green variant, and a classic black variant.

It will be housed in a heavy single-pocket jacket with game art featuring embossed and spot varnished tentacles. It comes with a lithographic print.

Alien Soldier will be a 180g 2LP. It will also be available in three different color variants – a limited edition blue, frosted clear and grey tricolor with splatter variant, a grey opaque variant, and a classic black variant.

It will be housed in a heavy single-pocket jacket with game art. It comes with a fold-out poster and early orders will also include a set of three laminated character post cards.

Alien Storm is priced at £21 and Alien Soldier at £26. Both are scheduled to release no later than July 15, 2020.

Alien Storm can be preordered from Data Discs here and Alien Soldier here from 7PM BST today (or earlier if you’ve signed up for their newsletter passwords).

Data Discs is releasing Gunstar Heroes on double vinyl

Today Data Discs revealed a listing for a vinyl release for Norio “NON” Hanzawa’s Gunstar Heroes soundtrack – a title that they announced late last year.

The release will be a 2LP cut at 45RPM. It comes in a single jacket with original and concept art from the game and includes printed inner sleeves and a double-sided poster.

As always Data Discs are making them available in several color variants. There will be a version on classic black, a version with a red and a blue record, and a limited edition version on red and blue split colored vinyl.

The release is priced at £25 and is not a preorder, so it’s ready to ship immediately when it goes on sale on Saturday May 27, 2017 via the Data Discs web store.
