Notes:
Wow, this production was a hell of a ride. It was originally done for an old-school FPS throwback called SATURN ICARUS (https://gamejolt.com/games/saturn-icarus-work-in-progress/149262) and 12 tracks were produced for it. I got paid for the commission (!) but to date, the game is under indefinite hiatus and I don't know what, if anything, may happen to it from there.

So with the original creator's permission, I have taken the album, along with some other tracks I had done for other things that never got used, and I made a full Synthwave/Hybrid album out of it. Each track is extremely different from one another and features anything and everything I wanted in it - synths, drum and bass, synths, orchestra, synths, operatic choir, synths, trance, synths, Japanese taiko, synths, metal guitar and, oh yeah, synths. A lot of different sounds and genres used here, but synthwave and 80s sounds form the foundation.

I consider this my "Passion" album - inspired directly after Peter Gabriel's "Passion" album which was a soundtrack for Martin Scorscese's "The Last Temptation of Christ" that he went back and did more work on before releasing it as an album. I did the same here.

It is available for $5.00 total on Bandcamp and other markets that follow a listing on CDBaby. Thank you and enjoy!

The production value here is top notch.  This is like Cosmic Star Heroine level awesome.  Nice work Meteo!  $5 is a friggin' steal x_x (good idea to let fans pay more though)

Also, amazing vocal sample for track 3 "Aladdin Continent". 

E-guitar samples in track 4 are da bomb .  I need me some quality like that...

Shame that this project hasn't come into full fruition, but at least you have an awesome album to show for.  Thanks for sharing Meteo :D

(edit)

I've listened multiple times in the car whilst doin' chores etc.  And I still wanna hear more.  This album is a blast!

I gotta buy it and give it a proper listen later, but after a quick skim through the tracks I can already say there's some good percussion stuff in some of them. Good choices for loops/writing/whatever. And a cool overall sound. Here's hoping the game itself manifests, and I'll echo the "awesome album to show for" sentiment. Nice work, dude.
