Ahoy me mateys Captain Cats here. Mondo has released 2 of what many consider the best music of the Castlevania series, and they are Symphony of the Night and Rondo of Blood. For people who don’t know what they are I’ll give a summary of each game:
Rondo of Blood or Dracula X in other parts of the world as it was known. The game takes place in 1792 where Dracula kidnaps four girls from a local village, and it is up to Richter Belmont, this generation Belmont to save them. He teams up with Maria Renard, a 12-year-old girl (don’t ask why just run with it.)
Symphony of the Night or Nocturne in the Moonlight in Japan as was known as and is a direct sequel to Rondo of Blood. The game takes place in 1796, just four years after Rondo of Blood and for some odd reason Dracula’s castle reappears, and Richter goes missing. Alucard, Dracula’s son, comes back to his father’s castle and tries to put an end to his father’s evil ways. Richter and Maria, now 16 in this game also make cameos.
Just in case if your wondering to yourself “why should I care” here are two tracks from each game that I love:
Rondo of Blood
Symphony of the Night
Both albums are going for $35 each and are 2 LP set, and each will come with both the Japanese and International music score of each game. We’ll do a review on them in the following weeks to see if they are worth the buy or not.
