Transylvania on Atari

Back in 1988 team The Lost Boys released sampled music demo for Atari ST — one of the most powerful home machines at that times. Listen to pure 8bit samples of Transylvania from first Iron Maiden album. Good example of burning (retro) ambitions — whole track sampled, remixed and packed into just 512kb of memory.

ZX Factor

Two pieces of digital art from ZX Spectrum based on 1995’s «The X Factor» album art. Both of them from russian pixel artists. First one done by Demiurge Ash back in 1999 for demo at CC’999 but was not used due to lack of time. Later after some retouch this picture was submitted six month later to Forever 2e3 demoparty gfx competition. Here it is: «Eddy X»

ZX Factor

Second one done by Stanly, this is inlay art form the same album but Eddie head seems to be a little bit out of proportion. Funny fact, but exactly this proportion error was on numerous bootleg CD’s sold during end of 90-s in CIS countries.
