Karl Gierlinger I always enjoyed video game music covers, especially in the metal genre. These guys do it well while adding a special touch: lyrics and a story. Good job!

This is the 2018 rerecording of our Gerudo Valley-inspired track 'The Forsaken Tribe', brought to you by our fans and Kickstarter patrons for the 20th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time!

Check out the music video for this song on our Youtube channel:


In the shadows for so long;
forgotten by those honor bound.
Days and nights passed without end.
Then it was he came.

Proud and able, a face of stone,
thieves built castles out of hope.

Though he claimed what he wished in spoils
drive'n by no fears of mortal coil
and though chaos reigned after dark,
they worshipped him.

Trekked together o'er desert sands,
a deadly harem to wrack the lands.

Sight a thief in dusty square;
Blink an eye and she isn't there;
She escaped on the wind,
As though she had never been.
