Alright, I'm done posting this track. I fixed the problems I had with it and am now pretty happy with the outcome.

Again, I was inspired to write a Castlevania track due to listening to multiple OST's over the past few weeks driving to and from work. So, check it out, and feel free to download it if you enjoy it.

EDIT: Ok, so I lied. I actually fixed it yet again to quiet down the choirs. You can find the newest version over at my personal website at: http://www.kelwynshade.co m

Haha, awesome. It's always nice to find something cool musically when you expect to find a bunch of rehashed boring renditions of tunes.

Thanks for checking it out and commenting.

Smooth a surrounding.

I like how you have that like holy theme in there and it gives me the impression of slow motion. Very consistent, and enjoyable. The gutair solo was really good in there. It was like the cherry on top of the ice cream cake.

Thats right, Ice cream cake with a cherry on top. :p

kelwynshade responds:

I love me some ice-cream cake. Glad you liked this one.


I loves the Castlevania. You Did A super job with the music! >.<

kelwynshade responds:

Great, thanks.

*looks in pants* iz made a mess...=/

Very very EPIC castlevania song! It has to be YM FAVE out of all the ones i hear on newgrounds. The background chorus, just ties your ears deeply into it. You used..guitars..right? Either way, it gave it a more modern day tone to it, instead of the ancient tone that castlevania songs try to go for. The quik steady beat is extremely important. I have listened to a few people with castlevania in the past, and their beat tends to change throughout the song..which sorta disapoints me. I cant put my hand on what it is about the song that draws me so close to it....agh, i blame insomnia. either way, i really enjoy this song. Being a Castlevania fan since it first came out for playstation 1....it has just been one of my favorite games EVER. This song reminds me of a trailer for all the castlevania games. the begning quik beat shows each game when they are about to enter the castle or the epic scenes of when the main charecter realizes they are about to face uter hell. The rest of the song shows epic scenes of each game of hordes of monsters falling to the ground, fight scenes with the boss..and much more. With the end of the song, it shows just little falshes of the end of each game of once they re finally done with the hell they just faced.

Quite an ah may zing song,

kelwynshade responds:

Heh, that's actually a really good idea for this track. I agree that this track would work well exactly how you described a possible video.

So much, that someone needs to make this video happen. NOW>>>>

Glad you liked the track, check out my other tracks if you haven't already. You may find something there of interest.

WOW blew my mind lol!

Ok this is gunna be a pretty big suprise as most ppl rank these games as very good and most players have played them but I have never played one not one castlevania game lol. But anyhow the song blew me away I really like this kind of music and never really thought castlevania had anything like this in it. Please make more !! everything you used for the sound is top notch though I woulda like some bass in there with the little 5 little beats coming in the backround. but then it would be more hip hopish lol. Anyhow I really hope you release more castlevania music soon I will definitly be on the lookout for you and im adding u to my favs great job 5/5 10/10 =]

kelwynshade responds:

Well, my friend, do yourself a favor and jump into Castlevania right away. Personally, Symphony of the Night will always be my absolute favorite title, so I highly recommend that one. I grew up with the NES games, but something about SotN made it my all-time favorite.

And thanks, glad you liked it.
