Songs of Time – Video Game Boom Box

Video

videogameboomboxOne of the down sides to doing an entire month dedicated to Pokémon was that we didn’t get to talk about other important events that happened that month. One of those events was another important anniversary that we didn’t get to talk about which was the 30th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda. Just like Pokémon, Zelda is very influential video game series always pushing the limits of any video game system it’s on. Through these games players for the last 30 years have had an amazing journey through Hyrule and parts beyond. One of the hallmarks of The Legend of Zelda, like any influential video game series, is the music. The Legend of Zelda has a history of impressive musical scores; from the original NES game to the newer games. However, no Zelda game is a better example of a great musical score than The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

It is so influential that one of my favorite YouTube music creators NateWantsToBattle made an entire album dedicated to this monumental video game. The album Songs of Time, in my opinion is what a rock opera based on the game would sound like. While this album doesn’t hit all the story points of Ocarina it does hit some of the more important points. The album starts out with the first song Same Old Forest going through Link’s thoughts at the beginning of the game. Next we are treated to two guest singers Amanda Lee and Adriana Figueroa singing as both Saria and Princess Zelda respectively. After the next two songs Hero of Our Time and Time to Go, we get five songs each representing of the five temples that you go to after waking up seven years older. Each song is from the bosses’ perspective and is different genre of music depending on the boss themselves.  The finale of this album all ramps up with the last song The Evil King which is mainly just Ganondorf talking to Link near the end of the game.

NateWantsToBattle is one of the best music creators on the internet. He has a knack for making awesome music; whether its music from games like The Legend of Zelda, Pokémon, and even Five Nights at Freddie’s to anime with English versions of themes like Sword Art Online and Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood. He is defiantly a total professional and loves what he does either through singing or playing instruments. Check out NateWantsToBattle’s music on his YouTube Channel and check out these samples of this album below.

Tomorrow Nintendo will be presenting a new Nintendo Direct starting at 2 pm Pacific Standard Time (that’s 5 pm for those of us in Eastern Standard Time). According to the picture above they will be focusing on games coming out this summer. But will that include any new things about Pokkén Tournament, Star Fox Zero, or even Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD (which will be out this week)? How about some things we don’t know about? Does Nintendo have anything up their sleeves? Let us know Arcaders what you think in the comments below and stay tuned for a highlight article tomorrow.  

Video Game Boom Box Halloween Edition: The Legend of Zelda (NES) Dungeon Theme

Video Game Boom Box Halloween

Dungeon Theme – The Legend of Zelda  

I tried long and hard to think of music from The Legend of Zelda series that would fit perfectly and there were a lot of good candidates but the one I picked is, in my opinion, the most haunting and suspenseful song in the Zelda series. This music comes from the original Legend of Zelda game for the Nintendo entertainment system (or NES for those of you 90’s kids). I feel that this theme shows that you don’t have to have an orchestra to make music scary. Every time I was in one of those dungeons this music would defiantly add to my frustrations as well as the sound of my life bar being low. I also added the orchestral version for fun!
