about

Isolated deep in the dark depths of the planet Brinstar, Samus Aran lies in wait to coordinate her attack. On the run from cursed vampire hunter Simon Belmont, Samus will need to be stealthy and swift.

The music of the Metroid series highlights the isolation, barrenness, and unknown associated with outer space so beautifully. Most pieces are so sparse, atonal, or arrhythmic that the lines are blurred between music, sound design, and environmental sound. Kraid’s Lair is one of a handful of structured exceptions, and this one lends itself well to a hard rock aesthetic. When the band set out to arrange this song, we all agreed unanimously that this song would not be a mashup and would highlight the original composition. However, we could not resist the similarity we found with the Fortress Theme from Super Mario World and had to include it as a musical easter egg.
