Celebrate 25 years of Legend of Zelda a Link to the Past with these epic remixes

It's been a quarter of a century since Legend of Zelda a Link to the Past was released in Japan on November 21st, 1991. To celebrate, I'll be sharing tons of content! Be sure to check out my album and remix reviews, articles (coming soon), and a very special SUBCON Podcast 45, all dedicated to the Super Nintendo classic, Legend of Zelda a Link to the Past.


Tomorrow I drop another SUBCON Podcast. It's a podcast dedicated to the best hip hop and rap inspired by video games. Unfortunately, time and format constraints led to a few great tracks getting left out.

Just like my SUBCON Link to the Past special, each song listed here is a rearrangement from the classic Legend of Zelda a Link to the Past soundtrack composed by Koji Kondo. We've got a few more hip hop vibes. Monstrously metal covers by ThePlasmas and Pokerus, and a clasy orchestral medley from Shiyru.

These tracks were shared by the amazing artists and musicians from the Game Music 4 All facebook group. Be sure to head over and join our discussions about music, gaming, and more! Check out these artists, and share some of your favorite Legend of Zelda Link to the Past memories with me on Twitter @genoboost!

The Sun Sagas - A Musical Tribute to the Golden Sun Series from PokérusVGM

Paying homage to a life changing classic

I've been beating around the bush every time it comes time to talk about this album. The fact is, Golden Sun holds a very special place in my heart, as it was one of the first Nintendo games I got into after a brief hiatus from video games in my younger days. Once I dove back into the GS series, all my beloved memories of childhood, leveling up and fighting epic bosses in classic RPGs like Chrono Trigger and FFVI. The Golden Sun series kept that tradition alive for the handheld set, with three wonderful classics from Nintendo & Camelot.

Pokerus apparently feels the same way about the series, and has created nearly two dozen metal rearrangements from the series, originally composed by the eminent Motoi Sakuraba.

“The Sun Sagas” is an entire tribute to some of the best tracks from the Golden Sun Series Soundtrack composed by the Mighty Motoi Sakuraba.

Recorded between August 2014 and May 2015, this album pays tribute to one of the games I played most in my childhood, helping me to escape from the real world problems and that kind of stuff. This music is so important to me, so I made this to say thank you to all of those beautiful memories from the past.

I really hope you like it! :D
