It was announced a while back, but today Data Discs revealed that they will start taking orders for their vinyl release of Tohru “Master” Nakabayashi’s Altered Beast soundtrack.
The release will be a single LP cut at 45 RPM. As always it will be available in 3 different color variants – classic black, orange opaque, and a limited edition clear with orange splatter. The cover features original art sourced from the SEGA archives and the release also comes with a foldout poster of the box art from the game.
The release is priced at £20 and is scheduled to begin shipping out in the first week of July. Orders are set to open on June 30, 2017 via Data Discs’ webstore here.
Data Discs have announced the release of the Galaxy Force II and Thunder Blade soundtracks on vinyl. Both soundtracks will be included on a single LP with a side dedicated to each.
The release will be a 180g LP housed in a 425gsm jacket with Data Discs’ trademark OBI and a lithographic Galaxy Force II print from Sega’s archives.
Data Discs will have three different color variants of this release available – a classic black variant, a yellow translucent variant, and a limited edition yellow translucent-in-frosted clear with white splatter variant.
The recordings will be from the games’ arcade soundtracks and have been sourced directly from original arcade hardware and then mastered for vinyl.
Preorders for this title will open on Saturday March 4, 2017 via Data Discs website and it is expected to ship late March, 2017.
Last week Data Discs teased that they would be releasing a surprise title that would be ready to ship immediately this week – and today they sent out a newsletter confirming that this release would be the soundtrack for Golden Axe I & II on the same record. The soundtrack to Golden Axe is composed by Tohru Nakabayashi and Golden Axe II is composed by Naofumi Hataya.
As always Data Discs are offering three variants and this time around they will be doing a limited edition variant on transulcent gold vinyl with purple swatches (see image below), a regular translucent gold vinyl version, and a classic black version.
Additionally, the release will come with two lithographic prints featuring game artwork.
The release will be able to order from Data Discs’ website on August 27. As usual subscribers to their newsletter will be given a code to access their site a little earlier than everyone else.
