Original SotN version:

CV Judgement version:

(For legal reasons I can't make this song available for download directly.)

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is perhaps one of the awesomest games in the long-running Castlevania series. It was released in 1997 back on the original Sony Playstation, and later in a special Japan-only release for the Sega Saturn. SotN, aka Akumajo Dracula X: Nocturne in the Moonlight in Japan (Which is what I used for the banner's artwork) was a huge hit when it was released for consoles... with its epic soundtrack, great hand-drawn 2D visuals, and a massive world to explore.

After a brief opening sequence (The game starts off at the closing curtain to the previous title, Dracula X: Rondo of Blood), the game puts you in control of Alucard, the Dark Prince and son of the legendary evil Lord Dracula. You arrive at the castle, the lights come on and as you're slaying giant bear-like creatures, this song starts playing. It's really one of my favorites, which makes me sad that the opening area of the castle is the only place you hear this track (It's different in the respective same area in the 'inverted castle' which unlocks later on in the game.)

Additionally this song was remixed for the Wii exclusive, Castlevania Judgement. While I'd heard the game itself wasn't that great, the remixed soundtrack is pretty awesome, I really liked it. (I featured it above directly underneath the original remix.)
