Jerry on 2016-08-27
London-based label Data Discs' seventh collaboration with Sega is the Golden Axe I & II remastered vinyl soundtrack album. The record's packaging includes sourced artwork from the Sega archives and is available for purchase through distributor PixelCrib in Australia.

In 2008, Sega's record label Wave Master published "Golden Axe: The Music" to three compact discs, including music tracks from the three Mega Drive console ports. The digital edition of the 136-track album is streaming on the Apple Music and Amazon Music Unlimited platforms. Music from the 1989 and 1991 Mega Drive beat-em-ups is by Tohru Nakabayashi and Naofumi Hataya.

The original Golden Axe is a featured title on the Sega Genesis Mini console and Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack. The remastered character select theme from Golden Axe II is streaming on SoundCloud, courtesy of Data Discs.

The outer sleeve features rare artwork from the 1989 Japanese edition, sourced from the SEGA archives and presented on 425gsm cardstock. As always, the audio has been carefully restored and mastered using the original console as the source, ensuring these memorable soundtracks are preserved for many quests to come...
