Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (Ultimate Edition Soundtrack)


Composer: Oscar Araujo

Performed by: Bratislava Symphony Orchestra
Sumthing Else Music Works
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 29 October 2013

Featuring the original musical score from the best-selling title in Castlevania franchise history, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Developed by Mercury Steam in association with Kojima Productions Studio, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (2010) is a dark and vivid new re-imagining of the Castlevania mythology. The epic original score, composed by Oscar Araujo and recorded with the 120-piece Bratislava Symphony Orchestra, received numerous accolades including 2011 'Best Original Score for a Video Game or Interactive Media' from the International Film Music Critics Association...

Oscar Araujo's original score for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow finally gets a retail release - and it's one album that both game soundtrack collectors and epic score fans should add to their collection.

This is an incredible score with numerous beautiful themes. Tracks like 'Cornell' straddle the line between game score and classical music. For me 'Maze Gardens' holds arguably this album's most beautiful theme. However, I have to admit that I didn't find a single track that I didn't like - there's not a second of filler material here.

The album contains 22 tracks and lasts for approximately 1 hr, 11 mins.

I have to admit to not having heard Araujo's work before, but he's one composer I'll be adding to my must watch list in the future.
