"you know how i feel about the zelda. this is another labor of love in time for halloween. my halloween series was intended to be a trilogy (Of Darkness and Legend, Of Transformants and Brevity, Of Futility and Hope) but i could not resist breaking the system. a slightly different (and i believe inmproved) version than the EP"
This is a REALLY cool piece; definitely one of my favorites from Mr. Hawatky. In addition to his token intricate and varied guitar work, there's spooky whispering, growling, rain and other ambient FX, but most notably some vocalizing and middle eastern instrumentation that reminds me of Cirque Du Soleil and some of the material from the more recent Prince of Persia OSTs - the percussion in particular has a grace and naturalness to it that flows beautifully and would have been far less effective had it been strictly quantized and repetitive. I looked up at Winamp (5.5 Bento skin... nice) and was simply floored that this mix was over seven minutes long, because it seemed like half that - not in the sense that it's not a substantive, expansive piece that well utilizes its extended runtime, but rather in that it all flows together so naturally that time just seems to slip by. It's disturbing and suspenseful at times, and thus appropriate for Halloween, but I also found parts where it felt like taking shelter from a storm - peaceful (if ephemeral) solace and contemplation. There's a mixture of moods and tones here that are captured very vividly, and I think this stands as one of the mixer's best pieces to date. It doesn't hurt that it's from such a popular series/title - Zelda fans or anyone looking to be completely transported to another environment by a piece of music should definitely check it out.
