Ch-Check It Out: The Legend of Zelda Post Rock Album

Introducing Ch-Check It Out! These segments are consists of  recommendations of lesser known thingy-mah-bobs that I come across during my interwebs ventures. It can be anything from a video series, music, crazy recipes etc.

This time, I’d like to share this magnificent post-rock tribute to the nostalgic musical score of the Legend of Zelda series, created by Cory Johnson. For those who don’t know what post rock is, allow me to drop this brief tidbit off of Wikipedia.

Post-rock is a subgenre of rock music characterized by the influence and use of instruments commonly associated with rock, but using rhythms and “guitars as facilitators of timbre and textures” not traditionally found in rock.

Johnson put his heart and soul into this album, and you can definitely hear it. The video I posted above is called Zelda’s Reprise. It takes a bit to kick in, but any Zelda fan would instantly recognize and appreciate it.

You can download this album off of his website at http://coryjohnson.bandcamp.com/album/the-legend-of-zelda. You can actually get it for free if you place $0.00 at the check-out. But if you really enjoy this album, please show your support and throw some bucks his way. Johnson is currently working on a Gundam Hip-Hop remix album, so look out for that as well!

  1. Oh wow, this is pretty great! It fits with the tone and atmosphere of Zelda very well. Reminds me of Metroid Metal — taking well known videogame music and filtering it through different genres, in this case post-rock, and with MM prog metal.
