I’m not going to lie: I was never a huge fan of metal music. Occasionally I’ll hear something that I do like, and typically it’s video game related. That being said, I recently got an opportunity to check out a new Mega Man tribute album called C-Busters: A Tribute to Megaman Classic (the tracks were provided to us for review). The album consists of fifteen tracks that are a blend of metal and rock and arranged by Thennecan and Materia Collective. The email I was sent said they had some favorites including Dr. Wily Stage 1 and 2 from Mega Man 2 and Shadow Man from Mega Man 3. Naturally I wasn't surprised that those were on the album as they're two of the more well-known tracks in the series”, but to my surprise the fifteen tracks covers most of the games in the classic series.
After listening to each track in the album, I can honestly say I enjoyed each one of them (this also coming from a huge Mega Man fan). As I said before, I’m not really a fan of metal music, but I actually found myself enjoying the metal tracks in this album. Plus, they included one of my favorite tracks in the series with “We’re the Robots”, so that’s always a plus. Those interested in checking out the album can find it on Bandcamp, iTunes, and Spotify.
