August Burns Red has announced a new EP called “Phantom Sessions” and released a video for the first track, a cover of ‘The Legend Of Zelda’.

Bassist Dustin Davidson says the following about the cover:

“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.”

“Out of all of the games that I played growing up, I easily logged the most time into Zelda. My brother and I would come home from school, race to finish our homework and fight over who got to play.”

Phantom Sessions EP Tracklist:

1. Midnight
2. The Legend of Zelda
3. Laniakea
4. Coordinates (Reprise)
5. The Frost (Midi Version)
