By now, you've likely had time to absorb the glory that is Harmony of a Hunter: 101% Run, the Metroid series tribute arrange album from Shinesparkers. Among the tracks is Sam Dillard's "Beyond the Glass," a cover of Super Metroid's Maridia theme. A few days ago, Sam released a music video for his tune, which you can watch above.
Two words: F*CKING AMAZING! Not only is the music itself incredible, the video production is just as fantastic. Using the Samus model from Metroid Prime, he whipped up a short animation that runs for the first minute and a half of the song. For the rest of the vid, clips of Super Metroid gameplay run on virtual monitor submerged far below the watery depths of a CG Zebes.
This is a follow-up to a vid that Sam produced for the previous Harmony of a Hunter. That number, "Into the Green World," can be heard after the break.
