Donkey Kong Country – Treetop Tunes [Tribute Album]

Hey friends, here is our very last album of 2018:
Treetop Tunes, a tribute to Donkey Kong Country music!
2018 has been an amazing year for us, we released some of our most ambitious projects ever! So thanks so much to everyone who participated in any way to the making of those albums. And thanks so much to everyone who took a bit of time to listen to our arrangements and even leave some kind words, those mean a lot to us =)
I wish to all of you, a really nice 2019!

Elements Vol. 1 by Infinity Tone [EP]

InfinityTone_975x140___VioletGreen__OnBlack___SMALL

Karol Kosacki (aka. Infinity Tone), one of our member just released his new EP called “Elements Vol. 1” a powerful metal album entirely made with virtual instruments !

“I’m 33 years old and I live in the suburbs of the capital of Poland, Warsaw.
I work as an AI/Gameplay programmer for Flying Wild Hog (Shadow Warrior anyone?), while also fulfilling my passion as a part-time, freelance composer.

I’ve been creating music in one form or another for a very long time, mostly focusing on energetic metal, rock, and various electronic genres. I love doing covers of video game music, but I also create my own tracks. I believe that creatively arranging a song composed by a different musician can be a very valuable lesson and can grow you tremendously. Other than VGM, I find my inspirations in almost any genre, as I listen to everything from classical and film music to metalcore and dubstep.

My latest original EP, “Elements, Vol. 1” is a natural progression for me. It’s building upon the style of my previous albums, which I most often describe as alternative metal. As I’m using virtual instruments in my arrangements, I also like to refer to it as “artificial metal“.

The EP contains everything I love – energetic riffs, hard-hitting drums, dynamic patterns, and, as a bonus, tracks referencing my yet another passionscience. It’s the first part of a larger project and I hope you’ll find the music interesting enough to look forward to part two!

Cheers!”
