Mazedude sums it all up:
"Ya know, I never really had the opportunity to play through much of Metroid Prime... but, I do love the soundtrack. And, ever since I first heard it, I've been contemplating arranging the "Vs. Parasite Queen" theme. And, since it was actually a part of the game I did get to play, there's a touch of mini-nostalgia there as well. Bring it all together with a request from Shinesparkers to contribute to the Harmony of a Hunter album, and it finally came to life.
The genre, I admit, is a bit of a departure from the original; I took a hard hitting boss theme and turned it into swingin' ambient funk, I guess you could call it. Chippy, groovy, and chromatic (like the original). I did get stuck on this one half-way through for a while, before coming back to it and bringing it back to life with some even crazier funkiness - as you may notice - but regardless, had a ton of fun making it and really enjoyed lending my voice to the Metroid Prime music."
Offhand, I wouldn't necessarily have thought that Mazedude's quirky, intricate, layered sound would apply itself as well to Metroid Prime's music, but this definitely works. He didn't dilute his style one iota, but rather found a way to symbiotically attach it onto the head of the source material. Palpitating synth bass intros as the undulating pulse of the mix, before a groovy mix of acoustic & electric drums come in, with scientifically sharp synth leads and gurgling pads/fx combining into an odd laboratory of textures. In a different world, one could imagine this as a very successful arrangement of 'Devil's Lab' - it's got that factory feel of peculiar, automated components all working together in a funky, discombobulated-yet-functional accord. It's sinister, and yet it also sounds like it might be making Pee-Wee's breakfast, before his big adventure starts. It takes a unique artist to make all of that work, but that's definitely Chris, as his contribution adds his eccentric, crafted sound to the album; great stuff.
