Skeletroy’s new album is here!

The Legend of the Musical Ninja is a collection of video game music spanning from 1987-1997, rearranged to sound like they’re all from the same game. Some imaginary SNES game that has a thrash metal soundtrack combined with traditional Japanese instruments like the shamisen and shakuhachi. I also included links to the original version of each song in this post, so that you might be able to appreciate the changes if you’re not familiar with the songs.
