Re-issue of http://vgmdb.net/album/29154 with new artwork.

Vampire Variations: A Musical Tribute to Castlevania
Album freely available at http://ocremix.org

It is with an immense pleasure and honour that I am able to present to you Vampire Variations: A Musical Tribute to Castlevania.

Vampire Variations was created to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of Konami's landmark series, Castlevania. Twenty musicians to arrange the mythic soundtrack of the original NES game that started it all. Andrew Warwick as visual artist to recreate the unique atmosphere of the demon's lair known as Castlevania. A wide variety of musical genres going from rock and orchestral to jazz and electronic music, including various references to other titles from the series.

It has been a true honour and a privilege to create, direct, and contribute to a such project. I would like to thank everyone who supported this venture, and to all people involved be they musician or visual artist.

Now, be prepared for an Aria of Sorrow, a desperate Rondo of Blood to this Symphony of the Night! The Lord of Shadows rises from his grave and only one man can stop him...
...What a horrible night to have a curse!

-Alexandre Mourey
