Cadence of Hyrule was the game that constantly took me by surprise, from the first time it was announced as a rhythm-based adventure set in Hyrule to the first time I got my hands on it and had all my doubts cast aside. Although perhaps an obstacle that some never quite got used to, the gameplay came naturally to me. Being a former musician, sticking to the beat was never a problem as long as I could hear the music, which from just the first trailer proved to be a masterful remix of many Zelda tunes that we know and love.

One of the tracks, entitled “Death Mountain“, is a remix of “Black Mist” from A Link to the Past. Like most tracks in Cadence of Hyrule, there are different versions based on whether or not there are enemies around you, as well as whether or not you are in or near a shop. This cover by Nicolas Daoust features real vocals that are a dead ringer for how the shopkeeper sounds when he joins in singing in the game, with Daoust of course adding a more realistic flair.

The video also features an adorable puppet of the shopkeeper, however you can also check out a puppet-less version here. After subscribing to his Youtube channel, you can also support Daoust on Patreon. Be sure to also check out Danny Baranowsky, the original composer/remixer for Cadence of Hyrule.
