It’s time to grab the Master Sword from its slumber for this week’s Weekend Remix.
2011 has served as a special year for The Legend Of Zelda for a couple of reasons. For one, 2011 marks 25 years of Triforce gathering, hook-shooting, dungeon-crawling adventures with everyone’s favorite green-capped protagonist. And two, this year has also allowed Nintendo to release the much anticipated Skyward Sword, the Ocarina Of Time prequel that’s got many gamers and critics already showering praises.
When it comes to Nintendo creations, you can usually bet that the gaming company will take special attentive care of their titles, especially in the music department. The Legend Of Zelda series has already inspired a tidal wave of gaming remixes. But that doesn’t mean you should skip Artificial Fear’s remix of the Skyward Sword theme.
Much like last week’s Skyrim remix, Fear’s take on the theme is a metal affair, sprinkling some folksy vibes and soaring with screaming guitars. What’s impressive, is not only the fact that Fear skillfully plays every guitar on this tune from bass to acoustic, but also makes each instrument fit together like a seamless musical puzzle. The song kicks off with an impressive power that’s also as fearless as Link himself. And this eventually segues into a softer acoustic take on the melody, before eventually ripping into a fantastic guitar solo.
