My understanding is that the Varia Suite CD will be a regular CD. But, if you donate to Metroid Metal, you get a preview of the album as well as a bunch of other MM songs on CD in 320kbps MP3s. Two separate CDs, as far as I know!
Well, from what I read, the CD you're referring to (the one with the mp3s) costs $8, which is the same price and time length as the Varia Suite CD (assuming it's a separate releasing), and that's the source of my confusion.
Zane is mostly correct.
The Sponsor's CD (full of 320kbps MP3s) doesn't actually cost anything - it's a gift Grant gives out to anybody that donates money to us. I have no idea where anybody is getting the $8 cost from that. All the music on there is already freely available on the site at 192kbps, so we have no reason to actually sell/market it.
Varia Suite on the other hand DOES cost $8, and is full of 14 completely rerecorded tracks - they're not the tracks from the website or Sponsor CD (which, once again, are the same). It's a legit, pressed, UPC-code having, CD-quality CD. There are no MP3s anywhere near it. You can listen for yourself here: http://metroidmetal.bandcamp.com/ and preorder the disc here: http://www.surecords.com/metroid_metal_ … n=preorder
I don't really understand why this wasn't asked over at the MM boards, but I hope that resolves your confusion. Also could you link me to what you were reading? If your confusion arose from reading something on our site, we should probably fix it

I'm not sure how I missed this music. Some of it has been out for years. I liked what I heard and ordered both CDs (It appears there are two; one via donation and another via standard payment). I'd love to go to the live show, but it'd take me almost 3 days to drive there.
The Seattle show won't be our only one (also it's sold out so please don't waste your gas ). I'm just guessing based on your driving time, but are you on the east coast? We all live next to the Atlantic, so you should see a show you can reasonably drive to soon.
