Songhacker L-Train continues to rise above many of his cohorts in the community with his Symphonic Metal Tribute series, each one more masterfully designed than the last. His skill at transitioning from easy-going beats to fearsome bombast, all while maintaining the soul of the source material, is Romantic-era levels of prodigious. I pray for more, whether they be future adaptations or new originals.

Peter Seabrook this track is done really, really well, like professional quality arrangement and production. I love the show and this makes for a fantastic tribute to it. Paid a bit more than I would for a song cause it's many songs together and I want to encourage you to keep doing things like this!

Cyber This is a very well done track! This is actually the first thing I've bought from Bandcamp. The pacing is done well, it truly pays homage to one of my favorite shows. Kudos to The L-Train for this amazing track!

I love this show, it's got some great characters, entertaining stories, just the right amount of absurdity and a lot of heart. It's also got a wonderful soundtrack, courtesy of the talented duo of Aivi & Surasshu, whose jazz piano + chiptune style has some interesting parallels to my own metal + orchestra approach. So here's my tribute to the wonderful music of Steven Universe, a 12 minute whirlwind tour of Steven's world done in my usual Symphonic Metal style. Translating some of this music led me in some rather odd directions, but I had a lot of fun doing this :)

Original versions of all of the songs can be found over at Aivi & Surasshu's soundcloud: soundcloud.com/aivisura
