Knights QUEST 15: Requiem of Play: Castlevania music – part 1 of 2

Resurrecting the Sound of Play podcast

What is a podcast? A miserable marvelous pile of music! Peter (Retrogamepapa) and Michiel are joined by special guest Leah Haydu (Cane & Rinse, Character Issues podcast). This quest is all about the excellent music of the Castlevania series, starting with Symphony of the Night. Why do we start there? Because this quest is a follow up of an older, by now unfortunately dead and buried podcast. In true Dracula fashion, Retrogamepapa decided to (temporarily) resurrect this podcast with the Knights of the Retro Table, to finish the job.

In the past there was a video game music podcast called Sound of Play. Episode 220 was all about Castlevania music, which you can check out here: https://caneandrinse.com/sop-castlevania-special/. Michiel Kroder and Leah Haydu went through the Castlevania games by release date, starting with picking music from the first Castlevania (1986-87) and finishing with Symphony of the Night (1997) and Castlevania Legends (1997-98). Peter (Retrogamepapa) kicks this quest off by starting with two Symphony of the Night tracks of his picking, before we travel further on. We then go through Castlevania 64, Circle of the Moon, Aria of Sorrow and all the other Castlevania titles up until Portrait of Ruin (2006).

Because there are so many Castlevania games, and we had so much to say about them as well as a lot of fun, this recording has been split in two parts. So basically there’s in the end three Castlevania music podcast episodes, counting also the Sound of Play one.
