The 5-disc, 75 track album represents more than 2 years of work by project organizer Nate Horsfall and some 200 musicians and 13 visual artists. "Chronicles of Time" spans numerous genres (rock, jazz, metal, etc.), and each of the 5 discs encapsulates one the game's time periods, from Prehistory to the Apocalyptic Future.

EDIT: This post initially claimed that Scarlet Moon Productions had produced the "Chronicles of Time" arrangement album, but in fact it is an independent production that Scarlet Moon Productions is promoting. Thanks go out to Nate Horsfall for the correction.
