Konami Kukeiha ClubOST Contra III: The Alien Wars
Set 3 years after the original, Red Falcon and his legion have returned to Earth, this time with the intent of launching a full-scale war against its inhabitants. It's up to Bill and Lance, our heroes to scale walls, ride motorcycles, and even cling to soaring missiles in an attempt to defeat the onslaught.
The music of “Contra 3: The Alien Wars” is epic to say the least - the looping sequences of each level are longer, taking full advantage of the new audio capabilities available to the composers on the Super Nintendo. In some instances, like with 'Battle Runner' which operates on-the-rails for large stretches, it affords for the composers to have some sequences to go nearly two minutes before a single loop. The sweeping scope of these tracks leads to a chaos absent from the previous chapters of the run-and-gun series, while still obeying the structures and pacing of Video Game music... Just with more complex time signatures, and percussion patterns.
This 30th anniversary edition features all 13 BGM tracks from the game.
