The Advantage - “Castlevania Intro & Stage 1(Song)”
31 Days of Halloween Music
Today's track is a cover of the Intro and Stage 1 music from the classic NES video game Castlevania. This game was one of my favorites from the NES video game era. A warrior, Simon Belmont, battling through various areas of Dracula's castle fighting all manner of monsters. Konami scored a huge hit with this one. The game, graphics, and music were spectacular for the time. Now of course the game looks dated, but the music I don't feel is dated, it's as awesome as ever. This track I have for you is from the band The Advantage who do covers of old NES video game music. They have a very rough garage band sound to them, but that's a good thing. I really enjoy this cover they've done putting a rock spin on the game's awesome Stage 1 theme.
"Beyond the twisted iron gates of Castlevania there lurks an unearthly terror who stalks the night in search of revenge... and blood."
