Theophany Announces Vinyl Edition of Majora’s Mask Remixed Albums
Theophany has announced a vinyl edition of the Time's End: Majora's Mask Remixed albums which are due to ship in April 2020.
If you’re a fan of soundtracks from video games, movies, and TV shows like myself, you’ll probably also be a fan of well-made fan remixes? Well, since discovering Theophany’s “Time’s End: Majora’s Mask Remixed” album back in 2014 it’s been one of my favorite versions of Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask soundtrack, the original launched back in 2015.
The original album “Time’s End: Majora’s Mask Remixed” launched by Theophany back in 2012 and was released by Materia Collective. The album “focused on Link’s struggle during the 3-day cycle” and features 10 tracks with a playtime of 54 minutes. In 2016, Theophany launched “Time’s End II: Majora’s Mask Remixed”, which “explores Link’s journey through Woodfall and the southern swamps of Termina.” It comes with 10 tracks and runs for 1 hour 5 minutes. The albums are officially licensed with Nintendo where $2 from every purchase goes to Nintendo as royalties.
Last week, Theophany announced a limited vinyl for both albums. The “Time’s End: Majora’s Mask Remixed” version will contain an “ultra high-quality” 180 gram 2xLP decorated with gold foil accents and designed by Rozen.
The “Time’s End II” vinyl will include the same style of vinyl but will also come with a 16-page booklet featuring stills from “Terrible Fate” short-film from Ember Lab. Both are available to pre-order. Shipping is estimated to begin in April 2020 and will also grant access to digital versions of the tracks.
While the artist has been busy with unannounced projects, they do state that they’re working on a final album in which 50% of the sales from the vinyl will be going directly towards the production. The final album is to focus on Ikana and the final arc of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Theophany also explains that they wish to assemble a small oktavist choir for Stone Tower Temple and Oath to Order, but thinks finding a possible male voice with that range will be a challenge but worth it.
While you have to pay for the first album, “Time’s End II: Majora’s Mask Remixed” was originally released as a “tribute to Majora’s Mask and a thank you to fans.” The entire second album is available for streaming on Spotify and YouTube (which I’ve embedded below.)
Additionally, if vinyl’s aren’t your thing but you still want physical copies of your music, a compact disc edition is to be launching in Q1 2020 and is available to order.
