ABOUT THE ALBUM
Undertale: Strings of Determination is an officially licensed massive four-volume cover album celebrating the music of Toby Fox’s Undertale which is celebrating its second anniversary. In an impressive short span of just two years, the game’s soundtrack has become modern classics in the video game world.
The album features the iconic songs and pieces from the Undertale OST such as “MEGALOVANIA”, “Hopes and Dreams”, “Your Best Nightmare” and “ASGORE”, but remade with solid electric violin melodies, pounding guitar riffs, ethereal vocal atmospheres, synths and drums to complete the set. There is also a special acapella rendition of “Temmie Village” with special guest artist Tera Catallo aka TeraCMusic from Youtube.
Undertale: Strings of Determination is available in Spotify, iTunes, Bandcamp, Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon and other digital retailers. Released under the Materia Collective label.
The album includes all 42 songs from the standalone "Strings of Determination" Volumes 1-4 but also with 4 new songs not available elsewhere including "It's Raining Somewhere Else" and "Bird That Carries You Over A Disproportionately Small Gap".
All pre-existing tracks from the old volumes have been remastered and optimized for a better listening experience.
"Strings of Determination" is a story of a dad and his daughter's love for Undertale and its quirky characters. It is about the power of the violin, guitar and a cacophony of other instruments in giving a heartfelt musical tribute to the world created by Toby Fox.
Taking more than a year to finish, Diwa de Leon (String Player Gamer on Youtube) and his daughter Kaya worked together to make this behemoth four-volume, 40+ song album a reality.
The album’s inlay booklet features the artworks of Kaya. Her reinterpretations of beloved characters from Undertale.
