Benjamin K Doyle Heaviest video game based metal I've ever heard. Takes the music of one of the most iconic video games of all time and reinvents it into modern metal, also the "djent" part of this album is more of a joke and isn't really utilized, just a warning. Favorite track: Ganon Lives!.

Paul Shuler So this is a Zelda revamp wtih metal, which you might think..yeah I've heard that done before, but this guy really lays down thick drums and nice guitars from this take on Zelda. The title is very appropriate except it has a little more of a neo classical style than LeDjent, but that's what Zelda kind of sounds like on guitar. Favorite track: Ganon Lives!.

Victor Max Vellon Attended a online listening party to be able to hear this via Alpha Omega Radio. Was great to hear the heaviest version of Zelda music I've ever heard and from none other than Beardo himself and my friend Masikus (Angel) on drums.

Was a pleasure to be there and hear this before release. Favorite track: Ganon Lives!.

With this "Ledjent of Zelda" project, I was hoping to offer the listener a more unique way to hear the original soundtrack to The Legend of Zelda. The dumb title is a play on words to basically say: "This is what this music would sound like with a modern metal mindset." This isn't "djent." It's The Legend of Zelda played by Mega Beardo through a Meshuggah filter, creating a musical bridge between 1986 and 2013.
