How cliché. Could this in fact be a metal Castlevania cover? I'm just kidding all Castlevania music NEEDS to be covered in a metal style! This one in particular is a song that I liked but it hasn't really gotten much attention. The song first appeared in Stage 2 of Castlevania Bloodlines on the Sega Genesis and can also be heard in CV: Legacy of Darkness on the N64 and CV: Circle of the Moon on GBA.

With this cover, I was really trying to go for more of the Genesis version but ended up more like the N64 version. You can hear it especially in the intro. I also had the idea to combine all three versions. I would have loved to have learned the bass line to the GBA's incarnation but I didn't ever get around to. Man was it a real BITCH to get this just right. The chord changes were just so awkward to me. The drums really threw me off on that but it can't really be metal without drums can it? This song gave me soo many problems so please go easy. I tried my best to get it somewhat decent.

I hope you don't hate it.


funny fact, my friend played this game two days ago and recordet it while i was talking like a referee, so my own voice can be barely heard during the video, but anyways great song indeed you have made 5 stars!

Hehe how funny. Thank you for your review.

God damn man! I think I recognize this song. Man, I really need to do a VG cover of my own

Kogasu responds:

LOL Castlevania music stays in your mind forever! That's why I love it. Thanks for reviewing.

Great work.

Kogasu responds:

Thank you!

Don't be so modest.

This is the rawest variation of a video game tune I've heard
in a really long time!

Stand proud!

Kogasu responds:

Thank you, I'm glad you liked it!
