"Dark Hunter is a progressive-metal album spanning six tracks from three installments of Nintendo's Metroid video games in visceral, dark, and atmospheric arrangements. Inspired by modern and traditional metal, progressive and fusion styles, as well as the original video game soudntracks, each track is a unique take on intense boss fights, unsettling caverns, and the ambience of the underground labyrinth the player traverses each adventure."
