If you were a fan of SEGA’s arcade games in the early 1990’s, you will likely remember the Shinobi franchise, which has also seen releases on the SEGA Game Gear, SEGA Master System, Mega Drive / Genesis and PlayStation 2. In order to show his love for this classic video game series, A long time fan named Rich Douglas has created Shinobi Synphony, a officially licensed synth tribute album which transforms the original game’s soundtrack into an entirely new type of experience.
As well as creating music for games such as Days of Infamy and Shadowgate, Rich has also developed cinematic video game tribute albums for several other games, such as Wolfenstein 3D, Perfect Dark and Metal Gear Solid. He also has provided support for several community albums based on video games, and is a member of the Materia Collective, an independent record label that started as a group of musicians who originally paid tribute to the music of Final Fantasy.
Shinobi Synphony is now available to purchase via Amazon and Google Play, and will be shortly be available on iTunes. If you are interested in seeing more about the compilation, be sure to visit the official page on Rich Douglas’s website, or listen to a free preview using Soundcloud.
