10 inch Vinyl Record
Original video game soundtrack 10-inch LP
Featuring original artwork by Eric Powell
Mondo proudly celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Castlevania franchise with the premiere vinyl release of the original soundtrack to the 1987 Famicom/Nintendo Entertainment System sequel: "Simon's Quest."
A departure from the structure of the previous (and subsequent) chapters of the Belmont saga, "Simon's Quest" takes the titular hero out of the castle to fight for his soul. Traveling from villages to mansions, through the forests and cemeteries, searching for the remains of Dracula to lift a curse placed upon him after he defeated the Prince of Darkness in the previous chapter.
Musically, "Simon's Quest" is the origin of one of the most popular of Castlevania BMG, "Bloody Tears." A staple of the sonic landscape for the series, here it is as the soundtrack to your daylight encounters across the dangerous Transylvanian landscape. It is one of the catchiest 8-Bit tunes to ever come out of this era of Konami games and an example of some of the best that video game music has to offer.
This album features both versions of the soundtrack, the NES version on Side A, and the Famicom version of the soundtrack on Side B.
