Label: Data Discs

After decades of prodding, pleading, bribing and bleeding…the vinyl gods have heard you.  The metalist of all metal 8-bit vide game soundtracks is now upon us.  Impossible to beat for the majority of us, Altered Beast was the method by which we separated the wheat from the chaff in our friend circles.  If you couldn’t beat Contra without the code or tackle Ghosts and Goblins, we forgave you, but if you didn’t put in the time and the sweat to conquer AE, you were banished.

Relive the torture, the stress and the lexicon of wasted hours through this glorious vinyl reissue from Data Discs.  The orange splatter is running out fast, so grab that one quick.  If you miss out on that beast, grab the orange wax.  It’ll sound just as good, I promise.

The Details

Sourced from a Japanese Mega Drive and carefully mastered for vinyl, Altered Beast is presented as a 45RPM cut LP in a 400g matt varnished sleeve and printed inner sleeve, both of which feature hand-painted artwork from the SEGA archives. Also included is a foldout poster of the original painting used for the game’s box art.
