As for the "how will they describe 60s to now", my guess is "post disco"

I know you've already done a ton of Mario music, but I feel like the soundtrack from the Mario Galaxy games may be worth exploring as they are probably the most unique score in the main series games

Make me remember the music related to Neclord (an important yet still minor side-plot villian in the Suikoden series), with an obvious fugue while exploring the castle, and then an EDM-yet-still-spooky-castelvania-style battle theme during the fight with him in the 2nd game... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=473L99I88n8

Hello! Fantastic videos! I have a huge question though. Why is the flat 6 flat 7 1 progression called like that? If you take a minor scale they are simply the 6 and 7 chord, not flat 6 and 7. Even though the "vampire killer" theme sounds a bit major, I think it is because it just borrows a dorian passage on the first measure. This progression is so familiar to my ears and guitar playing, but I always saw it as a natural 6 and 7 to a minor scale.

Great video, sir! You have earned yourself another subscriber to your channel. That said, I wish you had touched on some of the music in Castlevania: Bloodlines. Because that game has some very underrated, if not iconic, music of its own.

OH MY GOD, I always hear the James Bond theme in a ton of video game music, but I never knew how to talk about it or how to point it out to anybody. This is the first time in my life where I've heard anybody else talk about the "James Bond chord progression." I feel like a crazy man who has finally been validated. :-/

Thank you so much for this analyse and explanation! I love Castlevania's ost and wonder why it's so awesome. I am also a fan of classical music and rock bands, it is so interesting how composers combined those elements to create such a beautiful piece!

I've made my own wierd music for almost 20 years now, and one of my biggest influences has ALWAYS been castlevania titles, ESPECIALLY super castlevania 4. I'm entirely self taught and can't even tell you a basic scale, so it was incredibly interesting to see WHY I'm drawn to this game series music in particular. I started making music becuase noone was making what I wanted to hear,and now I know why!

amazing video! subbed AND hit the bell!

And, it case it hasn't already been mentioned, the guys who came up with the soundtrack for that first Castlevania game? Only two years out of college.

What were you all doing two years out of college?

This is an older video and maybe you won't see this... I absolutely loved this episode BUT, once you get out of the 8-bit stuff and into places where actual drumming can occur you don't ever talk about how those beats contribute to a song. That would really add a lot more depth, and you do occasionally mention it but it is (as far as I've seen which is most) glossed over.

I get that it's probably out of your wheelhouse, and maybe I noticed it most because it is in mine (or a little of both?). Just don't ignore the impact of a good drum line... just listen to that off-beat rhythm in Marble Gallery@4:45. I think that great off-beat snare really keeps your ears on their toes and helps tie the whole atmosphere together. If it was just a 4-on-the-floor it would be dull as hell.
