Kickstarter Covers

Shael Riley and the Double Ice Backfire's Ultimate Songs From the Pit album is finished at last. While we're waiting for duplication and logistical crud and then what not and stuff, we're going ahead and releasing our Kickstarter commissioned covers to you, the public, to tide you over. Because that's how we roll. I think.

I had heard of you guys in the past but I never really dove into the music. Too be honest, I hadn't really followed many NES-rock type bands period.

I've currently found this to be a mistake and have now been listening to these covers and "Songs From the Pit" pretty much since I woke today. There is something real about Shael's voice that is, in a way, comforting. Followed by the incorporated, and tasteful, blippity bloopityness that always strikes a nostalgic chord with me and the solid drum playing, chunky guitar. Great work.

I ran into Ricky at the Louisville Arcade Expo and he inspired me to check out the music and I'm very glad I did. moar moar moar!!

Edit: Oh and he mentioned there was some mastering done but I can't remember if he said the new album had it done, SFTP had been RE-mastered, or both? Regardless, it all sounds too sweet :)

Thanks, Suzums! ^.^

Also, listened to it and I have to say, I love your rendition on Leave Out All The Rest. The other songs are equally awesome, but the Linkin Park cover is my fav.

Juese Belmont's a close second though. :P

thanks guys!

Leave Out All the Rest stands alone because it's the only song we've done (so far) for SNES hardware, as opposed to the usual NES hardware. i plan on doing more SPC in the future though, now that i know how.

Thanks! The answer actually is both, regarding what was remastered. We have a new album coming out that consists of 10 new original songs and 6 songs from the Songs From the Pit EP re-mastered, by Drew Lavyne, and slightly re-arranged (by Ty).
