SOUNDTRACK, KONAMI KUKEIHA CLUB - Super Castlevania Iv: Original Video Game Soundtrack (Vinyl) (2LP)

Artwork by Jenolab. Pressed on 2x 180 Gram Black vinyl

Mondo is proud to present the premiere vinyl soundtrack to Simon Belmont's first 16-Bit adventure, the 1991 SNES classic SUPER CASTLEVANIA IV.

SUPER CASTLEVANIA IV, technically a remake of the first CASTLEVANIA game, puts you back into boots of vampire hunter Simon Belmont. But if the first CASTLEVANIA soundtrack was like a band's debut garage album, SUPER CASTLEVANIA IV is where they finally got into a major recording studio and fully fleshed out their sonic ambitions.

The Super Nintendo's sound chip brought the franchise into the world of synth for the first time. It allowed Konami's composers to use audio samples to achieve an instrumentation previously unattainable on earlier systems. From the moment SUPER CASTLEVANIA IV begins you can hear the difference, with synthesized samples of organs and chiming bells, that set a more cinematic tone for Simon's quest to fell the devil's castle.

But it's not all graveyards and fog; by the time you arrive at the fourth track on the album, "Simon Belmont's Theme," you reach the new gold standard for the music of CASTLEVANIA. And when you get to Track 8, "Mechanical Trick Castle," you are hearing Konami Kukeiha Club at its absolute finest, producing epic, bombastic score with prog rock elements that would remain the backbone of the franchise for years to come.

Remastered for vinyl and cut at 45RPM across two heavyweight LPs with beautiful original artwork by Jenolab, the soundtrack to SUPER CASTLEVANIA IV is essential video game music.
