Chrono Trigger Tribute Album

The team behind Spectrum of Mana presents officially licensed Chrono Trigger tribute album and art collection with all proceeds to be donated to charity.

San Francisco, California – February 15, 2016 – The team behind 2013’s acclaimed Secret of Mana tribute album, Spectrum of Mana, is excited to release their highly-anticipated tribute to Chrono Trigger titled Chronicles of Time. The 75-track album marks an unprecedented collaboration between over 200 artists who expertly re-imagine the beloved SNES-era RPG soundtrack originally composed by Yasunori Mitsuda. Chronicles of Time also includes a collection of over 50 pieces of artwork depicting the game’s most memorable scenes and characters.

Chronicles of Time is officially licensed and is available on LOUDR and wherever digital music is sold. All proceeds will be donated to the international charity organization, Doctors Without Borders.

“Following up Spectrum of Mana for us was no easy task, but the team felt strongly that we should tackle Chrono Trigger,” notes Chronicles of Time organizer Nate Horsfall. “Two years later, after laughing, crying, and bleeding together, we’ve emerged with something that rivals Spectrum of Mana in sonic diversity. Bigger, more ambitious, and with a team twice the size, there’s something for everyone with Chronicles of Time.”

The album’s five discs are sorted by Chrono Trigger’s time eras and cover everything from rock and orchestral to live instrumental performances featuring a diverse range of talent that includes Stemage (of Metroid Metal), composer Dale North, The OneUps guitarists William Carlos Reyes and Tim Yarbrough, and game music cover bands Super Soul Bros., Descendants of Erdrick, Eight Bit Disaster, Super Guitar Bros., Marshall Art, and many others.

Chronicles of Time is the second project of its kind organized by Horsfall, with the first being 2013’s highly-acclaimed tribute to Secret of Mana titled Spectrum of Mana.

Reaction

We here at Operation Rainfall are very excited with this announcement. Chrono Trigger is justifiably called the greatest rpg of all time by many individuals and publications. For me personally the title goes to the other Squaresoft game released the same year, Final Fantasy VI, but picking between the two is almost like choosing your favorite child, both are amazing. And a 5 disc tribute concept album based on it’s amazing music with the proceeds going to a great charity? If you can’t get excited about that, seek immediate professional medical help. You may just be Patient Zero for the upcoming zombie apocalypse.
