Materia Collective is thrilled to release The Dark Hunter, a progressive rock tribute album by arranger and guitarist Ro Panuganti dedicated to Nintendo’s beloved Metroid franchise. Featuring tracks from fan-favorites Super Metroid and Metroid Prime, The Dark Hunter hits all the high points with its epic renditions of the mysterious lair of Kraid, the dense jungles of Brinstar, the driving battle theme with Ridley, and of course the Metroid Prime main theme. The Dark Hunter (Music from Nintendo’s Metroid Series) is officially licensed and available:

“The gripping atmosphere, exciting turns and twists, and of course the soundtrack from Super Metroid gave me chills,” reflects Panuganti. “Creating The Dark Hunter was fulfilling my long-running dream of focusing on one theme, one sound, and one game series and making a solid album. You’ll definitely hear influences of modern progressive artists like Periphery, TesseracT, Plini, as well as more ’90s musicians like Pantera and Alice in Chains sneaking into the tunes; interestingly I mostly listened to pop and musicals while recording it! I hope everyone who listens to The Dark Hunter feels inspired to pick up a 7-string guitar or at least Super Metroid, Metroid Prime, or the new Metroid: Samus Returns game!”
This is really cool news, and this author feels that fans of the Metroid series will enjoy this. Will you be checking this out?
