It’s been a whirlwind of releases this week, and it looks like Grant “Stemage” Henry wanted to tack on his contribution to the week with his most recent release of Where Good Marbles Go To Die, an arrangement album for the game Marble Madness. The head man of the band Metroid Metal has been keeping himself pretty busy creating the collection and releasing it between his several other projects.
The 7-track release features not only Henry, but several other artists lending their talents as guests to each individual tracks. Including the accompanied expertise of the likes of Lauren Liebowitz of Descendants of Erdrick, fellow Metroid Metal bandmate Micheal “Kirby Pufocia” Molnar, Erik “VikingGuitar” Peabody and several talented others, the release has a fantastic mix of different types of melodies and genres contributing to its overall collective sound. Sporting the arranged music from all the levels of the original arcade release, and boasting wonderful art by Nate “FoxxDragon” Horsfall, there’s something for everyone to enjoy!
Where Good Marbles Go To Die is an exciting collaboration between talents and brought together on an arrangement album for a game that deserves its time in the spotlight. Available on Stemage’s bandcamp for the always reasonable “Name-Your-Price” to download the entire album, there’s also the option to donate $5 (plus shipping) in order to gain the overly-retro reward of a cassette tape of the album! How can you lose with that?!Tags: Arrangement, Bandcamp, Cassette, Game Music, Grant Henry, Marble Madness, Name Your Price, Stemage
