Nintendo Life shmup heads rejoice as Brazilian metal band and inventors of the game metal genre Megadriver have just released their latest album. For Great Justice is a twenty track metal cover album with some very iconic tunes from several classic shmups, including songs from Thunder Force IV, After Burner, Gradius III, U.N Squadron, R-Type and (of course!) the infamous Zero Wing. The album is dedicated in memory of Spanish artist Daniel Vendrell who designed the above artwork used for the album cover and sadly passed away early last year.
You can buy and stream the album from Bandcamp or listen to it on Spotify. Just make sure you play it very loud indeed. Any memorable tracks from your favourite shmups covered on the album? Hit us up in the comments below. In case anyone is wondering: No, they are not called "Genesider" in the USA.
