Metal Gear Solid’s OST Receives A Beautiful Vinyl Release
Despite sporting the old age of 21, Hideo Kojima’s classic title Metal Gear Solid is officially getting the vinyl treatment for its OST. Announced by Mondo and produced by Konami, the 2XLP releases today and is now available purchase, though it likely won’t be long before they’re all sold out.
The vinyl itself is releasing in two colors: the traditional black color (sold out), as well as “Green Smoke,” which pairs rather well with the green on the cover of the LP. Of course, this wouldn’t be a true Metal Gear Solid vinyl without some references to the actual game, which the artwork by Randy Ortiz does in glorious fashion. Naturally, the vinyl features the song “The Best is Yet To Come” by Rika Muranaka. Check it out below:
Here’s the description of the vinyl courtesy of the issuing company:
“The idea of the cinematic game may seem common today, but it was nascent in the 90’s – and when Hideo Kojima and his team developed Snake’s first three dimensional mission they took full advantage of the medium, crafting a soundtrack as epic in scope as the story itself. The iconic main theme is full of unexpected worldly flourishes including latin rhythms. The rest of the score is filled with echoing, pulsing percussion, brooding choruses, bright synth melodies. It’s truly one of a kind, while fitting perfectly side-by-side with other legendary Playstation titles of the era like Final Fantasy 7, and Silent Hill in their scope and genre blending influences.”
The vinyl is now available for purchase for $35.00, just be sure to act fast before they’ve all been sold off.
