Chocobo Band, an Italian band which rearranges the best moments of Final Fantasy saga soundtracks, announces the release of its second album, “Tales from Other Worlds”.
While their previous work “Shuffle or Groovy” was an intimate and experimental journey through some of the most famous songs, this new excursus throughout the series’ settings is drenched in powerful and epic atmospheres, which will let you experience the same emotions felt during the games’ most heart-rending moments, in a progressive rock / symphonic metal flavour.
The songs in the album, which span most of the saga’s chapters, are rearranged by the band’s personal touch in order to ensure a cinematic and impactful rendition. In addition to the complex orchestral arrangements and the layers of modern electronic elements, an entire choir has been recorded live to underline the most epic sections. Romantic iconic ballads will be there too, to let you dream of melancholic atmospheres just before going head-on towards the next exciting boss battle.
The album will be available from the second half of December, both in physical copies and on the most famous streaming and digital platforms.
