Good morning, afternoon or evening, ladies and gentlemen. It is my proud honor to offer, on behalf of Wardriver, this free collection of assorted tunes and tracks I have worked on over the past few years in my bold and delusional pursuits to become a video game composer - re-mixed (not remixed, sadly) and remastered by bLiNd and then as a whole by Daniel Lippert (Usabellchan).
Meteocrity Vol. 1 by 12 Followers/Meteo Xavier is a very sharp contrast to my previous album, ESPERS. Very little ambiance and new age here, this is instead 18 tracks of SNES-PS1 style mid-to-fast tempo, melodically based tracks that were all done on commission or request in previous projects that, for one reason or another, never came to fruition or have yet to be published in any game form.
Why should they sit on my hard drive unused?
While I won't claim this album will blow your balls off or anything like that (it is free after all), I would hope fans of the 16-32bit sampled era of videogame music would find stuff to like here. Most, if not all, of these were done 2-7 years ago and done to strict employer demands (for better or worse), so if you don't like the music, you know what to kiss and where to find it. :)
Track Listing is as follows:
1. Tempest Rush - Mastered by bLiNd during production
2. Caveat Emptor
3. Bitter End To a Thatched Ray of Light - Mastered by bLiNd
4. Five is Average - chiptune work by an anonymous artist
5. Bright Dreams From Empty Vessels
6. Wealth of Knowledge
7. Asymmetrical Conflict
8. Lofty Goals From a Forest Epitath - Mastered by bLiNd
9. Colossus of Egypt
10. Need Insurance? Get a Bullet
11. Red Dim Lights and Old Stories
12. Lunar Eclipse Millennium
13. Isolate the Variable
14. Vestigial Dance of Blades - Mastered by bLiNd
15. Exploring the Temporal Lobe with a Bomb in My Mouth
16. It Was Written on Your Tombstone - Mastered by bLiNd
17. The Heavenly Integer
18. Starry Knights
All tracks except #9 and #18 loop twice and fade out. #18 is a full song and #9 loops four times by accident, but considering what my then-employer asked me to do with it, it seems fitting.
Not sure what else to tell you about it except I hope you enjoy it and I hope you spread it throughout the internet so I can grow and improve as an artist.
