This is an orchestral remake of "Vampire Killer" and "Poison Mind" from the Castlevania series. I've taken a lot of creative liberties with the pieces and I think any Castlevania fan should love it!

This track is from an album I'm working on - it's called 8-bit Philharmonic, and you can check out more music at this link: armonic. It's a project to remake a whole slew of classic 8-bit tunes into great symphonic pieces. Check it out!

Please comment, criticism of all kinds is appreciated! Thanks.
-Nick P (8-bit Philharmonic)

Rated 5 / 5 stars


Aw man, I remember downloading this when it was on the new submissions list... I loved it then, and I still love it now. This song is pure perfection, and I can't stop listening to it :D

You have talent, young padawan...

NickPerrin responds:

Thanks a ton for the review! Personally I think my Symphony of the Night arrangement I've also uploaded here is my best tribute to Castlevania music, but this track here is what started it all for me in terms of videogame music arrangements, and I really appreciate the kind words.
Haha and yes, I am still a padawan when it comes to music, there is always so much more to learn and improve upon. Thanks for reminding me of that fact as well.

This song is incredible! I have one question to ask, do you think I can have your permission to use this in my game sped up? This is would make perfect boss music!

NickPerrin responds:

Hey! Thanks for the review. As long as I'm credited and the game is not used for any commercial purpose, I'm fine with this being used. Cheers, and let me know when your game is done!


Rated 5 / 5 stars


Very enjoyable :P

You've taken a well known track and re-arranged it successfully into a completely different style :D

Very well arranged and produced, well done.

On a side note, you should consider submitting this to OCR

NickPerrin responds:

Thanks for the review. I am definitely going to submit a piece or two to OCR, but which one exactly is yet to be decided, as many of these "8-bit Philharmonic" tracks are going to be on the album alone... for now!
