Evil's Bane

A tribute to one of our favorite N64 games of all time, The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time. Sound bytes (i.e. Navi, opening) and relevant concepts are, of course, the property of Nintendo. This was a joint project with my brother, Tsycho.

Lyrics and main vocals: Tsycho
Music and harmony: Me

It shines with an intensity
That could ward off even death itself,
The blade repels all evil,
But I cringe in spite of myself.

Sleeping in a sanctuary of time,
Awaiting a hero of legend,
Evil's Bane rests patiently
To be wielded by good once again.

I bear a great burden-
An ageless weapon of men-
For a body of seventeen years
And a mind of only ten.

The Triforce of Courage
Has granted me this accord,
But villages will still fall around me
Until I master the Master Sword.

My bow can shoot the wings off a fairy (Hey!),
My boomerang flies straight and true,
But, instead of feeling like an old friend,
The sword still feels brand-new.

I've trained long and hard,
But I can't reap what I've sown,
It still feels loose in my grasp;
It has a mind of its own.


I slip into Ganondorf's lair,
My body feeling inept and strange,
I shakily grip my shield,
But something's about to change (Look!).

The back of my hand begins to glow,
And darkness finds no cover,
It's as if my Triforce
Yearns for its lost brothers.

Power and Wisdom flow in,
As Courage courses through me,
Sword, mind and body become one;
I've fulfilled my destiny.

This time, I am
The Hero of Time.

I love this.

If you can really feel the music you cantell that this song shows how Link feels going through this adventure as he defeats ganon and traels as in an adulthood.


you have GOT to make a version of this song without lyrics! i love the tune!


Very good premise, music, and lyrics. Whoever is singing needs to project more though. Zelda deserves more than half ass mumbling.

bad mixing

Hot idea. Love it to death. But I can't hear a word you are saying!!!

Hit me up... We need to get your mixing skills up asap because you got potential.
Time to collab with some new people!

awesome dude

i like it you, the only thing is that i think you should put more rythim the next time but still awesome
