Notes

The idea of this album was to create a true recreation of one of the best video game soundtracks in history. These covers are not heavily arranged; the original NES games (for the most part) utilized only 4 channels: two leads, a bass and a noise track used for drums. In the same spirit, these songs consist only of two lead guitars, a bass and drums and very few liberties were taken with the music (except the drums*)--the songs were even recorded in their original tempos (sometimes set to the thousandth of a beat per minute) so that they could seamlessly be played over the game.

*First and foremost, I am a metal drummer and when this whole idea started the first step was to record drums. As the capability of writing drums for NES games was fairly limited, I figured it might sound a little empty having real drums play such limited parts, so I jazzed them up a bit.
