Legend of Zelda Receives Orchestral Re-imagining: “Sins of Hyrule”

Dec 9, 2017 by

Music lovers rejoice: Nintendo’s classic franchise is getting an epic soundtrack retelling.

Rozen, the award-winning composer and arranger, released his newest album this Friday, entitled Sins of Hyrule. The album is described as a sonic re-imagining of classic Legend of Zelda titles, including Breath of the Wild, Ocarina of Time, Skyward Sword, and Twilight Princess.

The composer Rozen is no stranger to projects like this. His resume boasts music arrangments from such iconic series as Hearthstone, Metroid, and Fallout, as well as several TV and film projects. To quote Rozen on his artistic vision for Sins of Hyrule,

“Through the use of live instruments, huge percussion, choir, hybrid elements, and dreamy vocals, experience the dark nature and the never-ending cycle of the curse trapped inside the divine-given Triforce.”

A combination of modern arrangements and original works, the album’s 15 songs tell the storied mythology of Hyrule. Fans of the franchise will hopefully recognize inspiration from classic tracks, including “Song of Time” and “Ballad of the Goddess”. Factor in the inclusion of the new pieces, and there is truly enough for fans, old and new, to throw their rupees at.

Sins of Hyrule is available now, and can be purchased from Bandcamp or iTunes, or listened to on Spotify if that’s more your style. Fans looking for a holiday stocking stuffer can purchase a limited edition CD copy of the album off of Bandcamp.
