Varia Suite contains a collection of Metroid Metal tunes re-recorded and "redone a bit" by the members of Metroid Metal Live. The 14 tracks feature fresh production and clock in at over 50 minutes in length. Varia Suite marks the first official album by Metroid Metal and is released under Silent Uproar Records.
This CD is a masterpiece and a product of such quality that we don t see very often. Even if you don t have a connection to Metroid music, the CD will most likely satisfy your music taste and serve as an excellent entry into the world of Metroid. For my money, it is the best CD of 2009, official or doujin, hands down. Highly Recommended. --Original Sound Version
Overall, the band delivers an album that will stand up to original metal bands in most people s playlists. Compared to many other video game cover bands, which prefer to show off their musicianship instead of writing good songs, Metroid Metal has found a good balance between staying true to the original music and displaying their own talents in Varia Suite. More cover bands should do this with songs. All metal heads, especially those who have played any of the Metroid games, should definitely pick up this album. --Metal Underground
