|“||I'm always trying to include at least one musical piece from the previous title to satisfy old Metroid fans. It's like a present for them. For example, the music we used by following this theory is the jingle when Samus appears on the screen, and the music we prepared as the present for Metroid fans are the pieces for the lava caves in Metroid Prime and underwater music for Metroid Prime 2.||„|
Magmoor Caverns (known as Lava Caves on the Metroid Prime & Fusion Original Soundtracks) is the main theme of the area of the same name, which appears in Metroid Prime. It is a remix of the Norfair Ancient Ruins Area theme heard in Lower Norfair in Super Metroid. The theme was remixed again for the Bryyo Fire area in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and the multiplayer menu in Metroid Prime Pinball, instead of the table based on the Magmoor Caverns itself. The original Magmoor Caverns theme is also one of the songs available for purchase in Metroid Prime Trilogy's Soundtrack Gallery. Metroid: Samus Returns features another remix of this song, in superheated areas. This version is included in the Samus Archives Sound Selection soundtrack packaged with the Special Edition of the game. The original version from Super Metroid was also used as the song for the Chronicle entry for Super Metroid in the Metroid Prime 2: Echoes Bonus Disc.
The theme of Lower Norfair begins its motif in C Phrygian, continues to play the same motif in D# Phrygian, F# Phrygian, and A Phrygian, the key in which the rest of the piece is set. It also featured repetitive synthesized chants that progressively grow louder.
