Castle of Tears

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.


Excelent Work

Can't hear anything wrong with it on my end: mastering was well done, EQ was done well, notes were well balanced. Have to say an epic piece all around.

Definately can visualize an fight scene between two great powers here, music like this gets the creative juices flowing. Not sure if it's part of the original or not (never played Castlevania sadly :( ) but some background elements of the piece sound like your own "Enigima" from a couple of years back.

Anyway, 10/10, 5/5 and DL from me, keep up the good work Nemesis.

Too good!

So good in fact,
if not for anachonism,
I can totally see Belmontes listening to this on their iPods
while kicking demon asses.


Dont know what else you can say other than that. Best one I've heard so far!

NemesisTheory responds:

Thanks man. :D
Glad to hear you liked it that much!

This is what remixes are all about

I've heard a lot of songs in my time, and this is one of the greatest I've ever heard. No fooling, I can't help but just bop my head to it, everything about this song is AWESOME. Anyone who disses this song is an a-hole, but to you my good sir, as of this moment you are on my favorite music artists on newgrounds. Keep up the awesome remixes.

Thanks man! Some good praise being tossed at me here, haha. ;p Can't say that I mind at all.

Thanks for the add and score! <3


This song is amazing, it's easy to feel all the effort that must have been involved in creating this.
I've never heard the orginal to be honest but if it's anything close to this it has to be amazing too.
Loved how you managed to layer all the instruments and yet keep the song clean and uncluttered, i could follow all the instruments throughout the whole song which in my opinion is key to an excellent song.
Stunning piece how you've brought the melody all through the song and still managed to make each section sound unique.
10/10, great work! (and yeah icecap is just as good!)

You definitely should check the original; nothing beats the original! :P I'm glad the mastering worked for you, as that's a pretty important aspect of such a busy song.

Thanks for the 10 mate, and you bet Icecap is awesome as well! :D
