Harmony of Heroes is an enormous collaborative effort from various musicians and produced by Shinesparkers. The album was released earlier this year, featuring a massive collection of musical splendor revolving around the various fighters found in the Smash Bros. series.
Then, as if the huge initial undertaking wasn’t enough, it was announced that there would be an expansion, titled “Final Smash,” to the original album — which already consisted of 101 songs composed and recorded by over 60 different musical artists. Now, that expansion is available through the Harmony of Heroes website. Oh, did I mention that you can download it for absolutely free?
The expansion adds another 27 tracks to the enormous musical playlist, reaching across many different titles between the video game characters they are derived from (most of which are Nintendo-specific). The variety in songs is astonishing, especially considering this is a completely fan-made production. The compositions are very well done, with each artist incorporating their own take on a beloved character.
The title list ranges from older character songs (“Paku Paku,” from Pac Land), all the way to newer titles, such as the Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks with “Toot, Whistle, Blow!”. There are even hilariously awesome additions to original compositions, like the fantastic lyrics added to the Punch Out-themed “Your Face is History.”
Fans can download the extension, as well as the album, in either MP3 or lossless M4A formats. I highly recommend obtaining the album, and for the low price of free, why wouldn’t you want to listen to expertly crafted compositions based on some of our favorite video game characters?
