It was teased via a small YouTube-clip from The Yetee back in January, but now it’s up on their website and it is set to release on Saturday – April 16th (Record Store Day 2016).
Black Materia is a rap/hiphop album by Mega Ran & Lost Perception in which they use background music and samples from Final Fantasy VII. The album was originally release on CD and digital back in 2011, but is now receiving a vinyl release as well. The vinyl version has been remixed and remastered with new orchestrated Final Fantasy VII arrangements by R23X. A full remaster of the track “Avalanche” have been uploaded to Soundbutt. Additionally, the full unremastered album can still be streamed via Bandcamp, although the new version is bound to be somewhat different.
The album features completely new artwork done by Drew Wise.
The album will come out on a 140g 2LP via Yetee Records. It’s marketed as a limited edition, but there’s no word on how limited it is.
The Black Materia 2LP can be ordered from their website here (orders cannot be placed until April 16, though).
