The third volume in Scarlet Moon Productions' Christmas album series, Scarlet Moon Christmas Volume III, is set for release later this month and boasts the talents of a number of accomplished composers known for their work on video games and major motion pictures.
The album features game composers arranging Christmas standards and video game music in Christmas style. Contributing their talents are Vince DiCola (The Transformers: The Movie), Osamu Kubota (DJMAX), Justin Lassen (Underworld film series), Dale North (Wizard of Legend), and others.
