In this long winded video, I talk about the different ways that Castlevania soundtracks combine modern sounds with classical techniques.

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.

Michiru Yamane is working on Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night as far as I know and that is great to hear.

The Castlevania franchise has spawned some of the best anthems of all time. Overall, its pantheon of songs are top bloody tier.

Ah yes, i too chord a music with flat fugue temperamental gothic colorful harmonic tune to minor the progression of the lyrical resonance.

Can't help but wonder what strange Translvanian bloodlines Bach may have unearthed in his long walks in the Black Forest that were transmitted into Michiru's compositions. . .

Now try this with Aria of Sorrow and/or Order of Ecclesia, both considered to be the best games in their respective consoles (GBA and NDS respectively)

8:43 My eyes hurt trying to read that note in the bass clef - please just use an 8vb!

Also, I’m always impressed by what your channel pumps out. Damn, this is some good analytical stuff!

So, in essense - Castlevania has music written by a competent composers who did their homework and research. TBH I was kinda sad that you didn't cover House of Sacred Remains from Lament of innocence - the only later Castlevania pice that rivals Abandoned Castle for the first spot
