The door has finally opened (five hours ago… sorry…)! And what might we find inside? Well, those of you guessing at a soundtrack were the closest, as Project Destati has been revealed to be… well, Project Destati! A… well, actually, take a gander at the press release instead:
Project Destati releases “Project Destati: Awakening” – a musical homage to the highly-acclaimed Kingdom Hearts series.
Reworked, re-orchestrated, and re-imagined, Awakening is Project Destati’s debut release – the beginning of a comprehensive collection of albums as homage to, and in honor of the music of Kingdom Hearts. The album’s release is aligned with the 11th anniversary of the Kingdom Hearts series.

And there we have it. Those of you familiar with the Kingdom Hearts soundtrack, specifically the titles of the pieces, may be wondering what ‘Sinister Sunburn’ is. After all, there’s no ‘Sinister Sunburn’ on the OSTs. There is, however, a ‘Sinister Sundown’ and a ‘Sinister Shadows’. And that’s all I’m saying. Buying the EP and giving it a listen yourself will be a much better answer than me simply telling you. So what are you waiting for? $3 for five excellent pieces of music is not really an offer you should pass up. I’ll have more on the EP itself later, with my thoughts, and some extras I hope you’re keen to look out for.
