New Zelda Tribute Album Loses The Ocarina, Adds Healthy Dose Of Metal
The Legend of Zelda's massive following and consistently stunning soundtracks make it a frequent source of inspiration for gaming musicians. We covered a bluegrass cover of Skyward Sword's iconic theme a while ago, but a new album is now getting in touch with Link's more hardcore side.
The Temples is a new album from Ro Panuganti, and features eight tracks that manage to be atmospheric while still encouraging some serious head-banging. The songs, all tributes to Ocarina of Time, mix metal and prog-rock influences to form a surprisingly listenable compilation (even if, like me, you're not typically a fan of the genre).
The album is available on bandcamp, Spotify, and iTunes. Now is the time to start campaigning for its inclusion in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate soundtrack.
