marks the release of RE: Discoveries,
the first full-length album from the 8-Bit Metal project. One part heavy/power

lyrics centered on classic video games from all eras. This one-man project is
manned by an hobbyist musician and distributed freely as downloadable content
on the project’s website. <http://www.le-ludophile.com/melomania.htm>
