Any gamer worth their salt (and older than 20) should be familiar with the often excellent Castlevania series. For many a century has the Belmont clan battled with the dread Count Dracula, along with many allies.
Aside from the great gameplay one of the equally incredible elements of the game has been the music. Though great from the first entry the series really took off at the Playstation’s Symphony of the Night.
This is not Symphony of the Night.
Dracula X remixies (yes, you read that right) is a remix album of a few songs from the game Dracula X, on the SNES. Released in 1997 it features house/dance beats in songs mixed by several different artists and may not be for everyone. If you like this kind of music, however, it is a rare treat, as you will hear several familiar Castlevania tunes mixed in with thumping bass and trippy beats.
- Dracula X – GATE TO HEAVEN – DJ FEILONG Xbeat MIX
- VAMPIRE KILLER – DJ FEILONG ORIENT EXPRESS VOCAL MIX
- BIG BURN X-STORM DUB
- TRANS FORM
- CEMETARY OF RAINBOW
- VAMPIRE KILLER
Out of all the tracks the only one I really have issue with is track 4: Trans Form. If your listening to this around other people be wary that there is an ongoing scream throughout nearly the entire track that gets old very fast the first dozen or so times you hear it, thought you get used to it after a while. I have had this album for well over 10+ years, so it doesn’t bother me so much.
By far my most favorite tracks are ‘Cemetery of Rainbow’ and both ‘Vampire Killer’ tracks.
