The Legend of Zelda – Hylian Downfall [Album]

Hello my friends, today is album release day 😀

After few “niche” games we wanted to make a tribute album for something really big and famous, so we picked “The Legend of Zelda” series.

This album features 50 songs from the very first games:
– The Legend of Zelda (composed by Koji Kondo)
– The Adventure of Link (composed by Akito Nakatsuka)
– A Link to the Past (composed by Koji Kondo)
– Link’s Awakening (composed by Kazumi Totaka, Kozuo Ishikawa & Minako Hamano)

You can download our album for free by clicking on this picture =>

We gathered more than 60 musicians to make a free album with 2h15m of pure musical nostalgia from those amazing classics!
This is one of our biggest album yet and the heart that everybody put in their work really shows the love for Zelda Games musics.

Here is a little trailer so you know how it sounds:

Pixel Mixers April Cover Contest Results

Hello people, it’s time for the review of April cover contest results !
The theme was “Villain Themes” and it was full of surprises.

Even if there was a bit less participants it was full of surprises like members making big collabs, people really trying new music style or some really original arrangements completely changing the mood from the original.

My last point was referring to the audio winner of this month, Orchestral Fantasy with his crazy salsa version of Kefka’s Theme from Final Fantasy VI.
At the 2nd and 3rd places we have the 2 leaders of the 2017 Pixel Mixers championship: Subversiveasset and PrjzCalavera.

About the video contest it’s a victory for Subversiveasset followed by PrjzCalavera and at the 3rd place we have a tie between the heavy SwigglesRP and the Epic Italian Team composed of Psamathes, Dacian Grada and Danilo Ciaffi.

PrjzCalavera keeps the lead at the 2017 audio championship, followed by Subversiveasset who took the 2nd place to Hashel (who didn’t enter this month). At the 4th place there is a tie between SwigglesRP and Dancian Grada, finally at the 5th place is this month’s winner: Orchestral Fantasy.

The May contest‘s theme is “Dance” so you can pick any VGM song you like as long as your arrangement make people want to dance =)
