We are the team behind 2013's acclaimed Secret of Mana tribute album: Spectrum of Mana. Chronicles of Time is our highly-anticipated tribute to Chrono Trigger - 5 discs and 75 tracks long, 2 years in the making.
This project is a world wide collaboration between over 200 artists within VGM communities such as Dwelling of Duels, OverClocked ReMix, and many live bands, who expertly re-imagine the beloved SNES-era RPG soundtrack originally composed by Yasunori Mitsuda, Nobuo Uematsu, and Noriko Matsueda.
The album's five discs are sorted by Chrono Trigger's time eras:
- Prehistory (Rock, Fun, Primal)
- Antiquity (Synthesized, Adventurous, Magical)
- Middle Ages (Natural, Worldly, Gentle)
- Present (Jazz, Soulful, Dance)
- Apocalyptic Future (Metal, Destruction, Dramatic)
These eras cover a wide swath of genres and feature performances from a diverse range of talent including: Stemage (Metroid Metal), CarboHydroM (Extra Credits), professional composers Alexander Brandon and Dale North, William Carlos Reyes and Tim Yarbrough (The OneUps), and VGM cover bands Arc Impulse, Super Soul Bros., Videri String Quartet, Descendants of Erdrick, Eight Bit Disaster, Super Guitar Bros., Marshall Art, and MANY MORE.
Chronicles of Time also includes a collection of over 50 pieces of lovingly crafted artwork by 13 different artists, depicting the game's most memorable scenes and characters. This project was organized by veteran game industry animator and visual artist Nate Horsfall. Representing two years of dedicated work from hundreds of people to pay tribute to one of the greatest games of all time.
We hope you enjoy it!

Mankind -- that word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests.
