New Music Release: CASTLEVANIA II: SIMON'S QUEST

Hi all,

We hope you had a wonderful holiday season. It's been about a month since we've had something new to share with you, and we're super excited to kick off 2017 with the second of our on-going Castlevania soundtrack series: Castlevania II: Simon's Quest. 

On top of that, we have a limited re-stocking of our Castlevania 1 soundtrack as well.

As always, all new releases go on sale on Wednesday at NOON (CST).

MONDO
Castlevania II: Simon's Quest - Original Video Game Soundtrack 10". Music by Konami Kukeiha Club. Artwork by Eric Powell. Pressed on Blue Vinyl with Green Splatter. Available for the first time on vinyl. $20

We are proud to present the second title in our on-going Castlevania soundtrack series, the NES proto-RPG 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.
