Metroid Metal started as a project for guitarist/vgm remixer Stemage but has grew in to its own thing with live performances an album, and an EP. As the name suggests, they cover tunes from the Metroid series of games in a metal style. In my opinion, this would fit Progressive Metal very well - just listen to it!


Varia Suite (September 2009)


1. Prelude (SM)
2. Lower Norfair (SM)
3. Brinstar (NES)
4. Item Room (NES)
5. Item Collect (NES)
6. Kraid (NES)
7. Ridley (NES)
8. Phendrana Drifts (MP)
9. Boss Medley (SM)
10. The Tunnel (M2)
11. Space Pirates (MP)
12. Maridia/Escape (SM/NES)
13. Ending (NES)
14. Theme (NES)

The little things is brackets are to show what game they are from, and are in the tracklisting on bandcamp;

NES = Nintendo Entertainment System (Metroid 1)
M2 = Metroid II: The Return of Samus
SM = Super Metroid
MP = Metroid Prime

Expansion Pack (September 2010)



1. Prime Theme (MP)
2. Brinstar (SM)
3. Norfair (NES)
4. Crateria (SM)
5. Tourian/Mother Brain (NES)
6. Prime 3 Theme/Bryyo (MP3)

MP3 = Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

If these where added, I believe they would be the first VGM-centric band on progarchives, something that really need to be added. Covers can be prog too and VGM is not exception. I know that Vangough released a video game album that was considered prog metal so I don't see why this shouldn't be.
