Want to listen to some Legend of Zelda tunes, but want them really loud? Materia Collective and guitarist Joel Kent have you covered.
Octorock: The Zelda Metal EP is a fully-licensed heavy metal cover album featuring four tracks from the series. Kent, a UK-born and Boston-based arranger, adds some thrash to the tracks, bringing in his experience playing in rock and metal bands in northern England.
Check out the full track list:
1. "The Lost Woods" (Ocarina of Time)
2. "Dragon Roost Island" (Wind Waker)
3. "Stone Tower" (Majora's Mask)
4. "Ballad of the Sky Goddess" (Skyward Sword)
... if you play that last track backwards, do you get a metal cover of "Zelda's Lullaby"?
