I assume most of you know the bloody tears theme from castlevania 2. It's one of the best melodies in videogame history in my opinion, alongside themes like Icecap from Sonic 3, and it was time to finally properly remix it. :)

This is a full-blown remix, so there's no short stuff here. All I can say is, enjoy it! A lot of effort was put into this one.


Couldn't help but let my imagination run wild with this piece of work. Great job!

When 2:15 hit, I just oozed a big one. That was just awesome...

Nice sounds and good atmosphere, the personal connection I have with Castlevania is missing for the most part missing in this tune. The attitude of whip slinging badasses doesn't quite shine the way I like it to in this remix. I also don't think this style particularly fit the series. Feels like it could fit a light-hearted anime adaption of the series catering to a modern anime audience.

You know what I hate about this song the most? How all the "Remixes" are just the original with changed instruments and a solo added at one point or another. This happened so much I lost interest in the song from hearing it over and over with minimal variation.

I find this to be a very very pleasant break from that for a change and it makes this song worth listening to again. I also think that enough of the original is there to make it relevant to fans while sounding different but not so much so that fans no longer find it doing justice to the source. When remixing this is probably the most critical thing to keep in mind and balancing it is probably not easy either.

This is, by far, the best, most enjoyable remix of this song in this world and in any others there might be. I dare say this might even surpass the original in the aspect of grabbing the person who just happens to be in earshot of this song.

You so eloquently took all of the best features of this song and exemplified them in ways I-we-didn't think would be possible. This song, much like a great deal of your other works, are able to communicate with people on a base and truly real level.

Continue you work as you will only find success.

Tomorrow is yours.
