Ballads of Hyrule on Pre-Order Bandcamp


SEATTLE - April 25, 2018 - Materia Collective is thrilled to announce Ballads of Hyrule, a collection of orchestral arrangements from The Legend of Zelda series, envisioned as an adventurous night walk across the lands of Hyrule. Ballads of Hyrule makes for a perfect companion to 2017's smash-hit Sins of Hyrule album, which provided an epic retelling the mythology of The Legend of Zelda. Ballads of Hyrule is licensed and available for pre-order ahead of the May 1, 2018 release in digital and CD formats as well as limited edition vinyl:

"Ballads of Hyrule is the spiritual antithesis to Sins of Hyrule," explains arranger Rozen. "The goal is to draw you into the more contemplative side of the lands of Hyrule; a nocturnal walk that feeds on the gifts left by the three goddesses: Nayru, Farore and Din, captured in nature."
