Concept albums aren’t anything new, but this one certainly follows a new flavor. Battletoads: Smash Hits is a 2xLP retro recharge split between two toadally rad discs. First is a trip through an NES time warp, featuring legendary tunes by David Wise (Donkey Kong Country, Diddy Kong Racing) — the OG soundtrack that sent the ’Toads on their epic collision course. Turning the dial from 1991 to 2020, we’re introduced to the metal-drenched score of David Housden (Thomas Was Alone), a fitting modern melody of mayhem for Rash, Zitz and Pimple to bust jaws to. Before Professor T. Bird ends this transmission, we must warn you: This vinyl fights back. The limited edition jacket design by acclaimed artist Alex Pardee includes an iam8bit.com exclusive punch — a “Kiss My Fist” 3D Pop-Up gatefold.
This cassette is one big adventure as experienced through the eyes (and ears) of Rash, as told through music. Side A revels in Rash’s clash (and subsequent defeat) at the hand of the Dark Queen, while Side B completes the hero’s journey. Featuring “Rare” tracks from the original Battletoads (NES) and Battlemaniacs (SNES), this mixtape rocks… including the first time (ever!) that Battletoads (Arcade) tracks have officially been released outside of the game. It also includes additional tracks from Battletoads (Xbox One, 2020) that aren't included on the vinyl. It’ll make you zune ;-)
