Jill and I produced this mix for a friend of ours, bLiNd, who was seriously ill and hospitalized. In fact, many others from OCReMix.org contributed to an entire project of Super Metroid music ("Reserve Tank", to be released soon.) We picked the Maridia 1 theme, which was already creepy, minimal, and atmospheric, and developed the arrangement together. The entire song was done from start to finish in the span of a single 48 hour marathon session (minus sleep) and we're really proud of the result.

Jillian is the vocalist (hear more of her work at www.jilliangoldin.com) while zircon did the production. Inspirations included our previous collaborations, like Final Fantasy 7 - Deliverance of the Heart, Jill's album "Origins", the remix "Xenosphere" from Xenosaga, and various other New Age/Electronic songs.

We hope you enjoy this tune as much as we did when making it! :)

Totally gonna make a GD level with this nothing can hold me back

It's amazing, keep up the good work! 😃

I have had this favorite ever since 2008 when you released it, it's still my favorite Metroid song I have ever heard


I've had this song in my favorites for a while, and I just came back and listened to it (a couple of times), and I at one time even had this in my itunes playlist (old computer). But even listening to it now, I feel that it is marvelous. Great vocals, great mix, great overall. Now what needs to be done, IMO, is a Metroid movie needs to be made and this needs to be in it! 5/5


The vibe of ambiance the beginning gave me, just about melted my brain. Quite sensational!
And then the vocals came in.
My brain once again lost function.
Absolutely gorgeous! This is one of those reasons why I have the urge to pet mankind. I'm so happy I can hear such music!
Good job you guys!
