A cappella soundtrack performer Smooth McGroove has released a new track from a classic SNES action RPG. Square's Secret of Mana featured a exciting combat, a compelling story, and an extremely enjoyable soundtrack.

McGroove’s latest is “Into the Thick of It,” which comes from the early parts of the game as the male protagonist fights his way through rabbites after his exile. You can catch up with McGroove’s other work on his YouTube channel.
