"Epoch" is the culmination of 2 years of work building a band from scratch with a unique idea in mind: celebrate Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda in a way no one else ever has. Instead of simply playing the original songs in a different style, Master Sword has crafted tracks which capture the spirit of the games and molded that spirit into 4 progressive/power metal works of art.

To compliment this, we enlisted the help of some of the DC area's best vocalists. Nina Osegueda (A Sound of Thunder), Rob Bradley (Aries), and Chad Keyser (Fair Skies/Wild Storm) all lend their distinctive talents. They're joined by the "Goddess Choir" of Lauren Kuhn, Melanie Kurstin, and Mary Patton who bring their beauty and power to the closing song "Legends."
