Master Sword

As a 5-piece American progressive power metal band inspired by music from The Legend of Zelda series, Master Sword celebrates Nintendo's series in a way no one else ever has. Taking influence from an array of hard rock to progressive metal favorites, Master Sword has crafted tracks which uniquely capture the spirit of the games and molded that spirit into impressively rockin' heavy metal tunes.

Master Sword was formed in Maryland in 2013 with the goal of writing original music that draws heavily from 70's/80's progressive rock and heavy metal, with Zelda-inspired lyrics and melodies woven fluidly throughout. The influence of Koji Kondo shines through Master Sword's top-tier musicians with influences from classic bands such as Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Judas Priest, Genesis, Dream Theater, Megadeth, Rainbow, Opeth, Porcupine Tree, and Helloween.

Shadow and Steel is Master Sword's long awaited full-length album, featuring 10 songs inspired by Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series. These original tracks expand fan favorite motifs and thematic concepts into original arrangements - with screaming guitars, pounding bass, expressive keyboards, innovative drumming and the siren vocals of Lily Hoy serenading you with the lost stories of Hyrule.
