Thanks for posting; was wondering how much music the game had and how many discs it would take up.

I'll probably avoid the disc in the Backer edition and hope that Inti's label publish an OST.

Oh huh, I had thought Yamane was composing most if not all of it...

Hope there will be a lossless release of some sort...

Most of the Igavanias were Yamane working with someone else. She only did about half of the tracks for AoS and DoS, for example.

Have not listened to the full soundtrack, but Ryusuke Fujioka's tracks really stick out sometimes. "Gears of Fortune" is really good and I thought it was a typical Yamane composition - which it was not! Yamane delivers her usual Castlevania vibes here, but personally I find tracks like "Voyage of Promise" rather weak and a bit unoriginal. I'm also a bit disapointed that Ippo just contributed one track here (luckily he had a bigger role in CotM).

Oh, and thank godness they didn't include the English version of "Theme of Bloodstained" - which is horrible in my opinion compared to the original. These vocals... oO

Can somebody who has played the game tell me if the OST isn't complete? I ask because Jake Kaufman was supposed to do some music but isn't credited for anything here.

I was wondering the same. I thought he was part of Curse of the Moon, but apparently not either.

Without spoiling anything, there's an interesting....very different....area (I assume it's a bonus but I haven't fully beaten it to find out yet). I wouldn't be surprised if Jake did the, I believe, two tracks from it if he did take part in the game. It doesn't look like it's in there just based on track titles, at least.

Umm, did anyone else notice there's an inconsistency about who composed "Silent Howling"?

The Curse of the Moon soundtrack says it was Yamane, but the tags from this one say it was Fujioka. So, who is the actual composer for it?

Most of the songs for which Yamane is credited for composition on Curse of the Moon are tagged as either Keisuke Ito or Ryusuke Fujioka here. My guess is Ito & Fujioka arranged them, so they got the credit, but who knows. Maybe a future Inti Creates or noisycroak soundtrack release of this will clarify.

I'm in a chat with Jake and some friends of his, and they brought up his inclusion (or lack thereof) in the RotN soundtrack. The story is that they initially contacted him about it, he asked them to get back to him when it was time for him to contribute something, they never did, and he was too busy with other projects to get back to them. So yeah, doesn't rule out the possibility of future DLC, but the base game doesn't have any music by Jake.


Out of curiosity, does anyone else think some of the instruments sound a little out of tune in some of Michiru Yamane's tracks? There's something about them that sounds just a little bit off to me and it's enough to make me cringe when I hear it. I don't notice it in any of the other composers' tracks, save for Ippo Yamada's, but he's got all sorts of crazy atonal stuff going on with the strings in the background so I'm pretty sure that one's intentional.


Also, crazy thing, I was running some of the music through a spectrogram to try to get a visual look at what I was hearing with that detuning, and I noticed some tracks seem to use standard A=440Hz tuning, while others use A=432Hz tuning. Dominique's Theme is one of the A=432 tracks, which sucks because the quest complete jingle is tuned to A=440, and that clash in tuning is so uncomfortable to listen to that I never want to feed that old lady again. If you didn't notice any of this, or simply aren't bothered by it, I envy you.

Ugh. When I said I wanted lossless of some sort, I didn't mean this...

Apparently, it's a fake FLAC and they just converted the Mp3 files. Can anyone confirm? Also, why does some tracks end so abrupt, like "Gears of Fortune"?

Then, while I'm on it, why does some sound samples sound so ... off? I mean, listen to "Ritual of the Night". The melody is great, but the overall arrangement and synth quality is...meeeh!
This repeating drum line... the horn synth or what it is sounds awful! "Voyage of a Promise" features a similar, in my opinion, really bland drum line and mixing as well.

I really hope they put up a better quality soundtrack for this one with better mixing, sound quality, better loops and yeah. After all this promotion on kickstarter the game deserves it.

The music is not bad, by all means, but this product here leaves a bitter taste in my mouth, or better ears. What do you think?

So, Bloodstained makes a lot of reference to past Castlevania soundtracks, especially Symphony of the Night, but I even noticed a small reference to Castlevania 64's soundtrack, namely "Prologue", where the organ hints the melody of "Underground Waterway" around 1:24.

Any one else spotted some references?

Sorry for the double post.
