Jeesh's Hero of Time might be the best Zelda audio remix ever made

Legend of Zelda remixes are nothing new, and while some projects are creative - and others ambitious - the very best remixes are, ideally, both.

Jeesh's incredible "Hero of Time" remix is definitely one of the very best, as it doesn't simply sample and rearrange music from the Legend of Zelda franchise.

Instead, it goes in at a level that can best be described as granular to lift sound effects and clips of familiar Zelda audio - like Goron grunts, Fi's melodic gibberish, and  Link's Hyaaaaah! - to create one of the most amazing memorable Zelda tributes to date.

As you might expect from watching the video, it does end on a bit of a silly note (well excuuuuuuuse me, Princess!) but that shouldn't keep you from rocking out to this and adding it to every smartphone, MP3 player, and tablet that you have access to.

...which is totally easy to do because Jeesh put "Hero of Time" up on his BandCamp page as a free download.

Zelda fans - you have a new anthem, song to walk down the aisle to.
