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!”

~Karol Kosacki / Infinity Tone~

Castlevania (1986 – 1996) – Scarlet Night [Tribute Album]

Time flies, and we are already celebrating our 20th VGM Tribute Album!
And for that we needed to cover one of the most famous and beloved franchise: Castlevania!
For this album we decided to “only” cover songs from the games released between 1986 and 1996 to give ourselves the opportunity of making a 2nd Castlevania album in the future with the other games.
But for now, here is our Castlevania Tribute album: Scarlet Night

You can download our album for free by clicking on this picture =>

Or directly with this link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/7tut0kzyd268m7o/Pixel+Mixers+-+Scarlet+Night+%5BCastlevania+1986+-+1996%5D.zip

This album features 29 songs out of 11 games from the Castlevania franchise.
We gathered 41 musicians and the total length of the album is 88 minutes!

This might be our darkest and heaviest album so far, mostly due to the nature of the original product! But do not expect only metal, there are funk rock, electronic music, baroque and even some fusion-ish jazz tracks!
