Prime: Metroid Reimagined

by Outset Initiative



Prime: Metroid Reimagined is a nostalgia-infused visual tribute album celebrating the 20th anniversary of Metroid Prime. 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.”

Revisit six artfully reimagined locations that transpose the classic themes of Kenji Yamamoto's beloved Metroid Prime soundtrack into an intimate acoustic ensemble grounded firmly in the natural world. Live performances ranging from grooving guitar rhythms, soaring vocal harmonies, enchanting piano serenades, and evocative viola solos will transport you back to the world of Tallon IV. Featuring stunning artwork by Mona Finden, visual design by Jess Bruels, and animation by Zack Fenelon.

“This mix is a great show of musical force that truly does come across as Metroid reimagined.” – OC ReMix

A special thank you to Zack and my two favorite #1 fans for staying with me when the going got tough, JDC for helping make this album PPREFACTT, Akash Thakkar for always being a hero, Larry Oji and the folks at OC Remix for helping promote the album, and Chris Davidson at GameChops for your support.
