Contra 4 - Rocked 'n Loaded

Did you know some folks are working on a Contra 4 metal remix album? I sure didn't, until like two days ago, even though it's apparently been in the works for something like a year. But it's all good, because it's due out in January, making it a fairly short wait. Check out the info at Rocked n' Loaded, which includes a preorder link and some background info. Contra 4 had some really fantastic music that not only paid homage to the older games (specifically the NES era) but were also quite a bit more intricate than the average NES tune. And since the Japanese video game soundtrack has been so slow lately (how long has it freaking been since the last Konami Battle album?) this definitely sounds like something worth supporting. Check out this sample vid:

And more after the jump...
