When it comes to the music of The Legend of Zelda series, the opinions of what is the best soundtrack can be as divisive as which game itself is the best. The second of the Nintendo 64 games, Majora’s Mask, tends to be high up on the list of older titles along with A Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time. Despite this, it’s soundtrack gets less spotlight, or at least it did until now.

The gang over at Materia Collective have put together a huge homage to the game with FATE: A Tribute to Majora’s Mask. Featuring 79 tracks in total and a host of arrangers (including former OSV editor Michael Hoffman), the album is an “eclectic mix of genres and styles that reflect the tone of the original soundtrack”.

Majora’s Mask is known for being a wildly different, yet powerful, addition to the Legend of Zelda series. Both the game and the soundtrack have had a profound effect on our lives, which is why we chose to pay tribute to it in this large-scale collaboration with other fans and members of the VGM community. This game in particular stands out to us because, more than any game in the franchise preceding it and following it, Majora’s Mask dealt with the positive and negative issues that human beings face every day as well as in major moments in life – grief, death, the inevitable passage of time, fear, rejection, and temptation, but also friendship, reconciliation, perseverance, justice, hope, and love.  – Bandcamp Page

The album is separated into three distinct parts that convey different themes present within the game itself and reflected in it’s music and sets the listener up for a varied experience, left open to interpretation. Including individual arrangers and established artists alike, the album hopes to invoke all that Majora’s Mask has to tell its fans within it’s music.

FATE: A Tribute to Majora’s Mask will release, May 25th to Bandcamp and is currently available for pre-order through Materia Collective.

Edit: There was a correction made to the release date, from the 24th to the 25th.
