This album is a hardcore metal send-off for an amazing recurring Living World event in Guild Wars 2, Super Adventure Box. I've done a lot of metal covers of retro game music over the past few years, so I couldn't really pass up the opportunity to bring the metal to SAB's awesome 8-bit inspired soundtrack.

If all goes well, this will be the first EP in a series of four.

I'd like to thank:
• God, for everything
• ArenaNet, for creating Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 (if you're reading this and don't own the game, don't bother paying for this EP; BUY GUILD WARS 2)
• Keenan Sieg, for being one of the people that opened the way for these covers to be put in the game
• Nate Horsfall, for contributing such amazing album art on such short notice
• Josh Foreman, for subconsciously inspiring me to buckle down and make an EP of these covers
• OverClocked ReMix, for helping me grow into the musician I am today
• My fiance Kristina, for continuing to put up with me pouring all this time, effort, and money into making music that I just end up releasing for free
• You, for taking 18 minutes out of your day to listen to this underdog's metal arrangements
