AUGUST BURNS RED Premieres "The Legend Of Zelda" Guitar Cover

August Burns Red has premiered their guitar playthrough cover of the theme song from The Legend Of Zelda. Watch and listen in the video below.

"For the cover, I wanted to do a mash-up of not only the original theme, but other pieces from the game as well, and since the dungeon theme flirts with the diminished scale, it just made sense to put it into a metal cover," explained bassist Dustin Davidson, who conceived and executed the guitar playthrough. "It was a lot of fun to write and record and I look forward to playing it on future tours!"

"Out of all of the games that I played growing up, I easily logged the most time into Zelda," he shared about his history with the iconic game. "My brother and I would come home from school, race to finish our homework, and fight over who got to play. But the thing was — we didn't just have to fight each other — our mom was also in on the battle. My mom introduced us to Zelda on the original Nintendo, but the first game that I remember playing and really enjoying was A Link To The Past on SNES. Our love for the game only grew over the years and I'll never forget the three of us watching and playing Ocarina Of Time together on N64. Fast forward 20 years from Ocarina Of Time's release date to today, and you'll find permanent ink not only on my skin, but on my brother's as well. The series played a big role in our upbringing and we both got tattoos showcasing our love for a game that the three of us bonded over."
