Dr.Chris Record Spotlight: Castlevania II Simon’s Quest

Posted in 80s, Dracula, entertainment, Monsters, music, vampires, Video Games, vinyl with tags , , , on July 7, 2017 by chrisdsav

It has been a long long time since I did one of these. I figured with the new anime show out now it be time to do another of the Castlevania records. I don’t have three yet which is what the new Netflix show is based on.  It’s on Netflix now check it out, the show is four epsiodes. 

The music is what you expect from the game. Not every one loves this game it’s the most controversial of the CASTLEVANIA games. The music was still spot on matching the gothic nature of the franchise fighting your way thru Dracula castle.

The soundtrack was composed by Kenichi Matsubara, who later created music for the Castlevania arcade title Haunted Castle.  Haunted is considered to be a very very difficult game to beat. 

The NES version of the sound track is on side A the Famicon version on side B. There are major difference between the two. I’m not a music expert but I do like scoree from both. 

The art for the album is by Eric Powell. I love the map of Castlevania in  the middle of the sleeve when you unfold it . If your a huge Castlevania fan like I am you want to pick this up and the other sound tracks Mondo was selling them I’m not sure if they are sold out of the special edtions but you can get the regular black vinyl here

Hey guys for the last couple of years I been doing something with various guests called Film Dungeon Commentary where I sit down with someone and we talk about a film while watching it. this is not a parody riffing MST3K style commentary. this is just for fun, if you have seen the movie before and want to learn something extra about it. So far I have done , Bram Stokers Dracula, The Andromeda Strain, Trick r Treat, Howling 2, Fright Night Part 2, and Blade. Coming up next, The Beyond, Marvel’s Animated Doctor Strange, Man Thing and a  as yet undecided George Romero Movie.

Here are some of the commentaries I have done below check them out and leave a comment or two.

It’s with great sadness I must say to talk about the passing of Sir Christopher Lee.
He will always be Dracula to me.
