FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 SEATTLE - November 13, 2018 - Materia Collective is pleased to announce Children of Termina,  a deep exploration of the unsettling lore behind The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask by arranger Rozen. Much like his smash-hit albums Sins of Hyrule and Ballads of Hyrule, Children of Termina features powerful orchestral arrangements, this time taking on a dark and haunting tone as listeners unravel the mysteries of Termina. Live performers on the album include the Sofia Session Orchestra, Julie Elven (Horizon Zero Dawn) and Celica Soldream (World of Warcraft). Children of Termina is licensed and available for pre-order ahead of the November 30, 2018 release in digital and CD formats as well as limited edition vinyl:

Children of Termina Pre-Order on Bandcamp

Rozen is keeping the full track list under wraps with reveals to be made regualarly throughout the pre-order period, but the album opens with the explosive "The World That Ends in Three Days" which can be heard on the Bandcamp page now.

"For the next installment in my Hyrule series, I wanted to explore the parallel world of Termina and its lore," explains Rozen. "There's so much beauty found in darkness and mystery, even at the final moments of one's existence. I wanted to capture all the feelings in the hearts of the people of Termina when they're looking up at the falling moon, one last time, before facing extinction: love, solitude, despair, acceptance. It is my wish that you join me in this unsettling but emotional journey in the lands below Hyrule, and feel the same desperate need to heal the world as Link did."

Children of Termina will also ship on a limited deluxe edition 2xLP vinyl that will include alternate artwork with purple foil, foil-stamped numbering, a sheet music memento, an autograph by Rozen, and more (limited to 200 units). The CD is planned to ship December 2018 with the vinyl planned for January 2019.
