Prime: Metroid Reimagined is an audiovisual tribute to the game and is now available for viewing. It’s a very chill, relaxing remix album that I’m sure any fans of the series will enjoy.
Metroid Prime 20th Anniversary Visual Tribute Album Premiering November 17th
In honor of Metroid Prime’s 20th anniversary, an international team of video game musicians, artists, and designers have collaborated to create a nostalgia-infused visual tribute album, Prime: Metroid Reimagined.
Prime transposes the classic themes of Kenji Yamamoto’s beloved Metroid Prime soundtrack into an intimate acoustic ensemble grounded firmly in the natural world. Compelling live performances ranging from grooving guitar rhythms, soaring vocal harmonies, enchanting piano serenades, and evocative viola solos will transport you back to the immersive world of Tallon IV.
Revisit six artfully reimagined locations with animated diorama videos, featuring the stunning artwork of Mona Finden, visual design by Jess Bruels, and animation by Zack Fenelon. Toss on your raincoat and oversized shoulder pads as you traverse the lush overgrowth and light rains of Tallon Overworld in “Space Jump,” delve into the heart-pounding, magma-infested maw of Magmoor Caverns in “Varia Suit,” and shred the half-pipes and crystalline cascades of Phendrana Drifts in “Boost Ball.”
Featuring a talented lineup of heavy-hitting musical artists:
Composed, arranged, and produced by Zeke Fenelon (aka Outset Initiative), video game remix artist and game developer on Halo Infinite.
Piano performed by Ryan Ike, two-time BAFTA-nominated composer and sound designer best known for his work on award winning games including Gunpoint, Frog Fractions 2, West of Loathing, Where the Water Tastes Like Wine, and Reigns: Game of Thrones.
Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Bass, Mandolin, and Irish Bouzouki performed by Joshua Du Chene, vocal chameleon, multi-instrumentalist, backbone performer on Where the Water Tastes Like Wine OST, and game developer on Halo Infinite. In addition to his work as a metal vocalist and his popular Apple Bottom Jeans meme videos, Joshua also starred as Craig’s guitar in Halo Infinite, so it may be said with some authority that Craig will be tuning into the premiere of Prime from Zeta Halo.
Marimba and Percussion performed by Doug Perry, multi-talented percussionist who has been featured prominently as a soloist in popular video game scores from Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, Sid Meyer’s Civilization VI, and Fossil Hunters. He is a major contributor to the video game music record label Materia Collective and directed and co-produced the 97-track Undertale arrangement album titled FALLEN: An Undertale Tribute.
Viola performed by Andrew Steffen, distinguished violist who has performed with Mannheim Steamroller and numerous symphony orchestras. As one half of the ETHEReal String Orchestra, Andrew has contributed his viola, violin, and bass prowess to a vast number of Materia Community video game remix albums.
Mixing and Mastering by Forrester Savell, internationally renowned mixing and mastering engineer known for his genre-defying repertoire spanning influential artists such as I Built the Sky, Birds of Tokyo, Animals As Leaders, Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, Shihad, and Twelve Foot Ninja.
Prime: Metroid Reimagined is guaranteed to have you dusting off your GameCube controller for another playthrough of Metroid Prime. Tune in November 17th for the official YouTube premiere and stay up to date on release info at metroidreimagined.com.
