Children of Termina Announced by Rozen
After a brief bit of teasing from Rozen, we now know the title of his next installment of his ever alluring Zelda arrangement albums. This time, we will be joining Rozen at the dawn of creation’s end with Children of Termina. According to the Bandcamp page, this new album will be traversing into the world of the ever dark follow up to Ocarina of Time: Majora’s Mask. Rozen promises a dark and somber look into this chapter of Hylia, and I for one am very excited.
This new album will be bringing artists from previous works back together as well as some exciting well deserving additions. Here is an excerpt from the Bandcamp page for Children of Termina:
”Featuring an impressive roster of live performers and star collaborators, including The Sofia Session Orchestra in Bulgaria, Julie Elven, Celica Soldream, and Reven, Children of Termina takes his symphonic electronic style to new heights.“
Leading up to Children of Termina’s announcements, Rozen put out a bunch of cryptic images and videos before finally launching a Bandcamp page for pre-orders of the upcoming album. With everything hidden, this garnered a lot of speculation from the community as to what this new album would be. Thankfully, now we know a lot more about the release and when it will be releasing thanks to a series of videos posted to Rozen’s personal YouTube page.
