Music EXP Compilation Update 5. This one's HUGE!

Alright, so we now have EVERY SINGLE band on the upcoming Music EXP album confirmed. We have a whopping SIX more bands to announce for the compilation. Thus bringing the final compilation song total to 24 tracks! Can you believe it? 24 incredible tracks by 24 incredible artists. Many of which are exclusive to this compilation!

Let's announce the final six incredible bands for the compilation now shall we? First off is one of the most amazing bands I have ever heard, these folks take their musicianship very seriously and it shows with their incredible solo's and musical prowess. I am glad to announce The Kode is now on the compilation! The next group also has some amazing musicianship going on, and are actually contributing their very first studio recorded track to our album, (of which you can also get a sneak peak at their website). I am very happy to introduce our good pals Armcannon! Next is a group who is very close to our little website, the rockingest band in a very non-rock genre, Push Start is now confirmed for the compilation!

That's three down and three more to go! Alright, next up is the ever impressive Animal Style, who is helping hold down the chiptune side of this compilation. Another band holding down the chiptune fort is Sacramento, CA based duo Two Playa Game! Finally, the last band to be confirmed, the amazing mash up of chiptunes and hip hop, Super Barrio Brothers!

Now, finally, I am very excited to announce the entire line-up of bands and artists on Game Music 4 All's very first compilation, Music EXP.

20 Years of Metroid

It’s now the 20th anniversary of a game known as Metroid. Metroid made it’s debut on the NES oh so long ago. So get your friends together and reminisce about all the great times you’ve had with Samus Aran over the years. Remember how difficult Metroid was. How amazed you felt during the final boss fight with Mother Brain in Super Metroid. How about waiting and waiting for the Metroid 64 that never arrived?
While remembering all those great Metroid memories, from the original to the anticipation of playing Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and using Zero Suit Samus in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, why not listen to some great Metroid remixes that can be found all over this wonderful internet?
Check out all the remixes over at OverClocked ReMix including Metroid, Metroid 2: Return of Samus, Metroid 3: Super Metroid, and Metroid Prime. They also have their Relics of the Chozo project site up still, for anyone who can listen to ogg vorbis formatted music or anyone that uses torrent programs to download. Also many bands have their covers and remixes. You can hear these songs on the bands pages. Bands include

The Advantage (and here)
Brian Davis
The Final Sacrifice
theGREENzebra (i.e. the fellow that runs MAGfest; songs in ogg format)
Metroid Metal (of course)
Minibosses (the track at the very bottom)
Nintendoom (RIP)
Parasprinter (music video on youtube)
Two Playa Game (a song they said would never be put on their website.)

Also for those interested in the history of Metroid or just want to remember all the good times. 1UP has an article covering Metroid’s history entitled One Girl Vs the Galaxy. You also might want to check out Metroid Guide and The Metroid Database for more info about the series.
