When you don't have a 30 piece orchestra at your disposal to create an homage to one of the most widely recognizable soundtracks of all time, you gotta use the next best thing.
The Blake Robinson Synthetic Orchestra has released Super Metroid Symphony, an entirely digital and sampled production that pays fan-service to one of the most revered Super Nintendo games of all time.
"Composed by Kenji Yamamoto and Minako Hamano, Super Metroid 's soundtrack was always my favourite from the franchise with it's blend of eerie ambience, gritty underscores and unforgettable melodies. As a composer I'd always wanted to approach rewriting it from an orchestral perspective but it wasn't until recent advances in software and sample libraries that I felt I could truly do it justice."
Give a listen to the sample above and let us know what you think. We're going to download it, no doubt about that. You can buy the album now on iTunes, Loudr, or from the official website.
