Celebrate Metroid’s 25th Anniversary with Free ‘Harmony of a Hunter’ Soundtrack
Hey, guess what — in addition to being the 25th anniversary of Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda franchise, which the company publicly acknowledged, it’s also the 25th anniversary of another incredible series: Metroid.
There hasn’t been much in the way of fanfare or even a courteous nod in the direction of Samus Aran and her space pirate-blasting exploits. The universe could have been overrun by the metroid menace by now if it wasn’t for her, but Nintendo doesn’t care. Fortunately, there are fans who do. Talented, musically enabled fans.
Such is the story of Metroid: Harmony of a Hunter, a recast soundtrack of Metroid music spanning from the NES era all the way to Metroid: Other M. It’s got a variety of artists behind it and a range of musical genres are represented, from chiptunes to metal, electronica and even a little folk. I think I heard an accordion in there.
Pop on over the Shinesparkers.net and download the soundtrack right now. You can also order a hard copy of the album for a donation of about $10 to cover the shipping costs.
