SEATTLE - May 31, 2019 - Materia Collective is excited to release EXILE: A Tribute to Supergiant Games, a super giant cover album with 49 tracks across a multitude of genres and including several game industry guest talents. Featuring the music of Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre, all composed by Darren Korb and tied together by the unifying theme of protagonists who are outcasts, EXILE touches on everything from big band, acapella, cosmic space rock, '90s grunge, string quartets, brass quintets, hard rock and a number of fantastic choir arrangements. Featured talents include the Videri String Quartet, composers Stemage (Steven Universe, Bubsy: Paws on Fire!) and John Robert Matz (For the King, Fossil Echo), and many others. The album is licensed and available wherever digital music is sold:

 

 EXILE: A Tribute to Supergiant Games on all Storefronts

 

"The videogame community has a lot of love for Supergiant Games, and not without good cause," comment album producers Brian Diamond and Stephen Robert Froeber. "The genres and gameplay of their games run the gamut and we wanted to reflect the diversity of those styles in our musical tribute to the original material.

Nearly 50 arrangers and over 120 collaborators have converged to show their love for the games. We hope everyone enjoys listening as much as we enjoyed creating it."

 

Some of the album highlights include: a stunning choral rendition of "Mother, I'm here" from Bastion, a gorgeous and visceral cover of "We All Become" from Transistor in the form of 90s grunge and hard rock a la Garbage, and the virtuosic live ensemble performance of "Path to Glory" from Pyre by the Videri String Quartet.
