Legend of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time Gets A New Metal Cover (VIDEO)
There’s something to be said for the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time’s soundtrack. It’s easily stood the test of time (heh) with its simple beauty. The OST has seen a number of re-releases as well as fan tributes, however a new metal cover brings the whimsical tunes of Zelda into something a little heavier.
Ro Panuganti is an impressive artist who creates progressive-rock covers, this time a Prog-Metal cover album called The Temples that ditches the classic “ocarina” for some beefy guitar instead. The album features a total of 8 tracks which beautifully blends traditional and metal sounds making it well worth a listen. Panuganti released the intro track named “In Time” onto YouTube, which can be found below:
Keeping in line with his previous EP, this first song features a small sample of all the tracks that appear on the album and gives nods to each Temple which is featured within the game.
On this track itself, this game came out 20 years ago and my Dad was recommended it by the “Guy” at Sam’s Club. Little did we know this would be one of my favorite games, an adventure I couldn’t stop playing, and every level told stories beyond stories. Temple of Time felt like an achievement, a mighty safe bastion that rewards you with the peace. I like to think the people of Hyrule went there to talk about time, and then barbecue in the courtyard over.”
Which soundtrack is your favorite from the Legend of Zelda franchise? Are there any other great covers you’ve heard lately? The Temples cover album is available on Panuganti’s bandcamp page for $7.
