Final Fantasy IX – Beyond the Mist [Tribute Album]

Hey guys, I have the great pleasure to talk about what is to this day the biggest and (subjectively) best work by the Pixel Mixers community.
This album sets a milestone for us as a community and everyone’s time and efforts is finally rewarded by the release of this great project!
So let’s discover “Beyond the Mist” a Final Fantasy IX Tribute album.

You can download the full album (120 tracks) for free by clicking on this picture =>

FF_IX_final

Or directly with this link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/s6fh7a82m7zkidi/Pixel+Mixers+-+Beyond+the+Mist+%5BFinal+Fantasy+IX%5D.zip

This album features 120 tracks (the complete OST + some duplicates) made by as many musicians. The album is over 7 hours long !
We decided to divide this album into 6 “discs”:
A Night at Alexandria
Across the Hills
Of Rats and Men
Far from Home
Gaia & Terra
Bonus Tracks

While most of the songs follow the OST order, we decided to take some freedom and create some narrative arcs. This is especially true with the 1st disc that gathers songs related to characters or events linked to the city of Alexandria through the whole game.

We all hope you’ll enjoy our new takes on those fantastic songs composed by Nobuo Uematsu and the creative freedom we took with some of the songs.

Part 1: A Night at Alexandria

Part 2: Across the Hills

Part 3: Of Rats and Men

Part 4: Far from Home

Part 5: Gaia & Terra

Part 6: Bonus Tracks

GW2: Super Adventure Box – Try Hard & Tribulations [Tribute Album]

We are really happy to finally release our 2nd album of 2019, and it has a special story!
In the beginning of 2019 we had the idea to release a real but small album on April Fools Day. The idea we had was to use the fun OST from the Super Adventure Box, an old-school inspired adventure/platforming mini-game in Guild Wars 2 that was originally released in the game as an April Fools Day joke back in 2013.
The players enjoyed that mini-game created by Josh Foreman so much that it came back to be turned into an annual festival within GW2.

The OST of the “SAB” was composed by new GW2’s composers Maclaine Diemer and Lena Raine. Some songs like “Sunny Glade” or  “Main Theme” were still inspired by Jeremy Soule‘s compositions from the main game.

The funny chip-tune OST inspired our musicians and we went from a smaller 5-7 songs project to an album covering the complete OST from the Super Adventure Box, which made us change the release date to make sure we had all the songs covered. We sincerely hope you guys, GW2 fans or not, will enjoy this album =)

Or directly with this link: https://www.mediafire.com/file/ei67u98a16as7gd/Pixel+Mixers+-+Try+Hard+and+Tribulations+%5BGW2+Super+Adventure+Box%5D.zip

This album features the 24 tracks from the Super Adventure Box OST, originally composed by Maclaine Diemer, Lena Raine, Jeremy Soule, Joseph Clark & Keenan Sieg, re-arranged by 25 Pixel Mixers musicians.
The album is a little over 1 hour and 8 minutes of music and feature a great range of music styles, featuring: EDM, metal, classical, solo piano, country, fusion… and more.

And guess what? You can listen to the full album directly on Youtube!

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 =>

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!
