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

Suicide You Know My Name

Posted in horror, music, news with tags , , , , on May 19, 2017 by chrisdsav

I suffer greatly from depression and I don’t talk about it very much,. The death of Sound Garden Front man Chris Cornell really puts it forward for me how much I don’t deal with it. Every time I heard one of his songs on the radio this is the first thing I thought of, suicide. The TRUE HORROR is I have tried to get help from it so often and failed every single time. I don’t know how else to cope with it other than to bury my self in my work. Work, podcasts, projects like Dracula or Sunstone Audio Book. Its the only thing I can do to keep it at bay. I don’t let many people know about this and this is not a cry for help but a letter to anyone listening so they know You can work thru it. Here is the song that gives me strength when I am at my lowest, its from the JAMES BOND movie Casino Royal. Its by the late great Chris Cornell.
