Majora’s Mask – Terrible Fate

Time’s End II is the follow up to Theophany’s original remix album of Majora’s Mask, released in 2012. Building on the apocalyptic themes of Majora’s Mask, the new album explores Link’s journey through Woodfall and the southern swamps of Termina. The first album focused on Link’s struggle during the 3-day cycle while Disc 2 builds toward the first major turning of the game. It harkens back to the players’ feelings of hope as Link discovers a way to stop the moon from falling. This free album is a tribute to Majora’s Mask and a thank you to fans who have patiently supported Theophany since the release of Disc 1.
