"Unidentified distress beacon has been tracked to a derelict space vessel."
Phazon: Metroid Saga is an homage to the Metroid series in ROZEN's powerful dark hybrid style.
Featuring the iconic industrial sound from Metroid Prime, woven with complex synth and orchestral textures, the album covers themes by Hirozaku (Hip) Tanaka and Kenji Yamamoto.
This album brings back the involvement of longtime collaborators, with arrangements and orchestration by David Peacock and REVEN, and performances by the Sofia Session Orchestra, ETHEReal String Orchestra, and Larry Salzman.
Special thanks to Pete Lepley (www.petelepley.com/store
) and SynaMax (synamax.bandcamp.com
), whose synth preset packs and sampling knowledge are heavily deployed across the album. Consider supporting their work! They're amazing artists.
