Here at Never Ending Realm, we love JRPGs and the music that accompanies them. A special place in this writer’s heart is the classic tunes of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past. I remember playing this SNES JRPG and loving every minute of it, especially the memorable music. My favorite track from a link to the past has to be Hyrule Field but Lost Woods comes a close second. Un-surprisingly, others also enjoy A Link to the Past’s music. One such fan group is the band known as The Game Brass, a brass instrument centered music group. The Game Brass is releasing a full album featuring the Nintendo hit using full brass instruments, giving the original SNES synth tracks strong competition. This album encompasses every track from A Link to the Past, from the title theme to the end credits. Each score is recreated note for note in orchestra style. These are not remixes. The Game Brass has created cover songs for multiple video game franchises such as Deltarune, Persona 4, and Super Mario to name a few.

A Fresh Take on a Memorable OST

In addition to receiving the full album, The Game Brass provides each purchaser with an MSU-1 enhancement patch. The Game Brass boasts that this patch allows purchasers to import the new music into the original The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. For veteran’s of The Legend of Zelda franchise, this music swap could breath new life into A Link to the Past playthrough.

A Link to the Brass releases to Bandcamp November 21, 2021 (this Sunday). If you are interested in The Legend of Zelda music or music featuring brass instruments, check it out.
