I'm going to tell you an embarassing fact. It wasn't till a few years ago, probably around the time I was doing this song, that I realized 'A Link to the Past' was a play on words. A link.. a connection.. to the past. I just never saw it. I apologize.

I got the idea to do this song from a friend of mine. He was talking about how this song would sound really badass as a metal cover, so I decided to give it a shot.

There was a slight change in sound here, I changed the bass drum sound on my V-Kit. It mixed a lot better than the previous one.

Listening to it now, this was a pretty good remix. The only thing bugging me is the drums were a little off. I was still just coming up on drums at the time, so they're a tad bit sloppy, but I really wish I would've fixed that part in the beginning where the drums lag for a second. We also have some brass going on here, which as I said before can be tricky to sound good in metal, but when it does, it really does.

Overall decent remix, another middle-grounder in terms of popularity for the 2010 era.
