Kindred (Super Metroid)

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! :)

Great Song!

I really liked this song a lot. I have played Metroid in the past, and I really think this song had a very dark feeling to it. The vocals or singing was excellent. The instruments were very good. I liked the drum machines, which I am a big fan of. The bells added to the darkness in the song. Excellent song overall. Very professionally made.

One of the best songs I've heard

This sounds absolutely incredible. It captures the exact same feeling of eeriness that the Metroid series has implemented since the beginning. Even better is vocals. IN A METROID SONG! This truly could be the best I have ever heard on Newgrounds.
