Castlevania Netflix Soundtrack Review

Reviewed by Justin D Williams

CASTLEVANIA—NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES SOUNDTRACK digitally on July 7th. Featuring an original score composed by Trevor Morris (The Tudors, Immortals) and produced by Morris and Trey Toy, the music is inspired by the classic video game series Castlevania --a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepes himself. The animated series is from Frederator Studios, a division of Frederator Networks, Inc., a Wow! Unlimited Media company, written by best-selling author and comic book icon Warren Ellis and executive produced by Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert and Adi Shankar.

The Castlevania Soundtrack is a worthy addition to the Castlevania name. Trevor Morris brings emotional, action pack soundtrack that matches the tone and feel of the show while paying homage to the videogame series. The soundtrack consists of 27 tracks which you can truly listen to all the way through. My favorite tracks are Bloody Greist, We Can't Turn Away and There's An Army Of Us. These tracks set the mood and tone of the show. Using the instruments of drums, strings and hard percussions really bring out the imagery of the epic battle scenes and some key emotional beats. Fans will notice some references to songs from the game which I think was well done and incorporated very well. This is a soundtrack very well done and I'm curious to see where the music will go for Season 2. Pick this one up and add to your collection. Here is the tracklist below.
