Metal Slug 4 (Arcade)
Let's Run Through!, Secret Place, The Scene Of A Hard Battle, Furiously
Metal Slug 4 features much of the same general gameplay as its predecessors, but with the inclusion of new vehicles, weapons and a bonus combo system. The game released in 2002, two years after the previous entry.
Let's Run Through!
This is the first stage theme in Metal Slug 4. The 'Rock' style remains a very major part of the series' music, with the games soundtrack maintaining this sound. The track also features some minor electronic sounds.
This is the final stage theme track. The song itself is a very intense theme, that feels like it's constantly building up to something important.
The Scene Of A Hard Battle
This is the games standard Boss Theme. It's another rock theme, with a funky bass line and a very notable guitar riff. It also features a violin melody near the middle of the track and some creative percussions.
This is another of the games Boss Themes. This version is slightly more intense and darker. The track features a both a chilling and funky piano melody that helps to define the songs character.
