Liven up your day with a new Metroid-inspired tune


A great way to end August

With the month that commemorates the Metroid franchise's 30th anniversary coming to a close, the video games record label known as Game Chops have launched a music video that for "Elysian Sky," a Metroid-inspired dubstep song by Varien (Walking Dead TV series and Planetside 2's Music). 

The song's music video features a mix of footage from the Metroid Prime series and Rainfall Film's Metroid fan movie, The Sky Calls. All in all, the editing between the game and movie work well in capturing the tune's feeling that makes you think that you're exploring an uncharted region of space.

As a person who isn't a fan of dubstep music, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed "Elysian Sky." Hell, I could see this song as an opening theme for a new Metroid title that continues Samus' story after Fusion.

Even though Metroid's 30th Anniversary didn't hit us with some official solid material that reminds people why they love this franchise, Varien's new song, and a few other fan works show us that there are many folks that are willing to pay homage to this series when the month of its birthday lands on our planet. In other words, Samus' special day will never go unnoticed as her legacy still lives on within our hearts.
