My personal favs, if I had to pick two, would probably be the Super Metroid "Prelude/Theme" and "The Tunnel". The former sounds exactly how I would imagine when converted to metal. As for the latter, the solo is great, but the "chorus" (the half-time part) is what makes the song IMO.

I'm very partial to the themes from Super Metroid, since it's one of my top 3 favorite games of all time. I think Stemage did an awesome job on all of the music from that soundtrack. The blending of themes in "Brinstar", "Maridia", and the "Boss Medley" is brilliant. "Lower Norfair" is very creatively done. The clean intro and clean break in the middle are perfect. The dirty hum of the distorted guitars is also very appropriate for this song. "Crateria" is very close to the top on my list of favorites.

"Space Pirates" isn't one of my favorites, but that's mainly because it's not one of my favorite themes. Production-wise, I think it's one of Stem's best. The eerie effects, slide guitar, and wah all contribute perfectly to the song. If a metal version of the space pirates theme were ever put into a Metroid game, it should sound something like this.

"Phendrana Drifts" has to be somewhere in my 2nd tier of favs with "Crateria", as does Prime "Title/Menu". Once again, the blending of themes is very well done.

For the original Metroid themes, my favorites are "Kraid", "The Ending", "The Theme" and "Norfair". I think "Norfair" gets a bad rap by some. Stemage did a great job making this song interesting. I also love the outro to the song. He got the most he could out of "Item Room", although the song sounds a bit too compressed. "Tourian/Mother Brain" turned out surprisingly good, considering the source material.

I like them all but my favorite at the moment is Metroid Metal Prime 3 - Theme/Bryyo. It's bloody awesome. :D

The beginning of Phendrana Drifts is badass =] I also particularly enjoy the Boss Medley.

[quote="chunkstyle"]It is a sin that you've named yourself after a character in Hunters, but you've never set foot on Zebes -particularly in Super Metroid.

A SIN!

unfortunately, i've basically gotten to the point where i can really only listen to the tracks with the "new" drums. i'd say my favorites rotate between brinstar (SM), theme/bryyo (MP3), and prelude/theme (SM).

i'd really really love to hear boss medley with updated drums though.

If you're interested in a drum upgrade, I highly recommend you check out the recent live show. Drums don't get any more upgradey than that.

Personally, I actually like the old, shitty sounding drums. They have a certain Stemage feel to me.

The being said, any of the ones after Lower Norfair are terrible. Especially the bass.

Mention of an association between s**t and anyone is ironic coming from you, Ibb.

Pretty much after the live show download, I can't go back and listen to the original recordings. I'm a sucker for crowd participation.

I find myself going "whooooaaaaa" and "Dun dun dun dun, dun dun dun dun" in my room alone at night when I listen to it. Why couldn't I be geographically closer to Magfest. Why?
