Night Trap Theme


Auger Attack/Bathroom Scene

Ship to Shore PhonoCo., in conjuction with Limited Run Games and Screaming Villains, is proud to present the theme song to the cult classic video game NIGHT TRAP for the first time on vinyl. Infamous for its place in the 1993 United States Senate hearings on video game violence, NIGHT TRAP has remained a part of gaming culture. Now, for the 25th Anniversary of the original release, fans can finally enjoy the deliciously 80s theme song on a 7” vinyl record!

Backed with two pieces from the games score, NIGHT TRAP is a release that should not be missed! Put it in your hi-fi setup, grab your tennis rackets and get ready to face down some Augers!

Super Castlevania IV Vinyl Soundtrack is on its way.

The soundtrack to Super Castlevania 4 is finally getting released on vinyl by Mondo Tees this week! I’ve been excited for this release for quite sometime, but its a shame the front artwork reminds me of a bad crossover of Simon Belmont from Captain N and Super Castlevania IV.

Hi all – this week, in anticipation of the newly announced Netflix Original Series, we will be releasing the next chapter in our ongoing CASTLEVANIA soundtrack series! It’s one of our favorites of the series, and quite possibly one of our favorite video game soundtrack of all time: the Super Nintendo classic SUPER CASTLEVANIA IV. We will also have a re-stock of our previous release CASLTEVANIA III: DRACULA’S CURSE back on the site.

As usual, new releases and re-stocks go on sale Wednesdays at NOON (CST).

Super Castlevania IV – Original Video Game Soundtrack 2XLP. Music by Konami Kukeiha Club. Artwork by Jenolab. Pressed on 2x 180 Gram Bronze and Gold Split Vinyl (Limited to 1,000 Copies) – or – 2x 180 Gram Silver with Red Splatter. $30

Mondo is proud to present the premiere vinyl soundtrack to Simon Belmont’s first 16-Bit adventure, the 1991 SNES classic SUPER CASTLEVANIA IV.

SUPER CASTLEVANIA IV, technically a remake of the first CASTLEVANIA game, puts you back into boots of vampire hunter Simon Belmont. But if the first CASTLEVANIA soundtrack was like a band’s debut garage album, SUPER CASTLEVANIA IV is where they finally got into a major recording studio and fully fleshed out their sonic ambitions.

The Super Nintendo’s sound chip brought the franchise into the world of synth for the first time. It allowed Konami’s composers to use audio samples to achieve an instrumentation previously unattainable on earlier systems. From the moment SUPER CASTLEVANIA IV begins you can hear the difference, with synthesized samples of organs and chiming bells, that set a more cinematic tone for Simon’s quest to fell the devil’s castle.

But it’s not all graveyards and fog; by the time you arrive at the fourth track on the album, “Simon Belmont’s Theme,” you reach the new gold standard for the music of CASTLEVANIA. And when you get to Track 8, “Mechanical Trick Castle,” you are hearing Konami Kukeiha Club at its absolute finest, producing epic, bombastic score with prog rock elements that would remain the backbone of the franchise for years to come.

Remastered for vinyl and cut at 45RPM across two heavyweight LPs with beautiful original artwork by Jenolab, the soundtrack to SUPER CASTLEVANIA IV is essential video game music.

Mother/Earthbound Origins 2X LP Soundtrack Review

Do yourself a favor and play the below video I produced that contains the entire soundtrack of this record while you read this review, it will certainly add to the flavor.

If you would have told me that the vinyl release of the Mother Soundtrack would be my favorite out of my collection back when I started picking up game music on vinyl, I would have told you that you were crazy; but after multiple listens of this incredible record, that seems to be the case.

I had always known that fully studio produced tracks for the release of Mother/Earthbound Origins existed, but I had only heard small bits and pieces of some of the tracks. When I picked up this record, I expected just a high-quality recording of the music from the Famicom classic; but instead I got so much more. Let me be honest, these lyrical, fully produced music tracks are pretty damn cheesy; but somehow hit me right in the heart with almost every track. For a game that was made to capture the essence of the mid to late 80’s in the United States, these arranged tracks do the same thing. I could have easily heard music like this when I turned my radio on in the 80’s and not thought it was out of place. The arranged tracks range from genre to genre; sometimes you get a little pop music and other times you get something that seems straight out of a Peter Gabriel album, but it’s all very well done and sounds fantastic on the format. Side D on the second record gives you the original music from the Famicom game and its sounds excellent in its constant mix presentation.

This two record LP set from Ship to Shore Phono Company is beautifully produced and comes on two gorgeous red vinyl discs, along with a great gatefold cover. The version I was given included a booklet which gives a nice history of the production of the music from this album and a thank you page devoted to the fans who backed the Kickstarter set up for this project.

Regrettably, the double LP version of this soundtrack is out of print, but you can still pick up the CD version of this directly from Ship to Shore as of the publishing time of this article. If you are a fan of Mother or Earthbound and don’t have some version of this music in your library yet, I suggest you pick it up! Just listen to the video I put up if you don’t believe me!

Bleeps On Wax – Contra 3: The Alien Wars Soundtrack!

Contra 3: The Alien Wars – Original Video Game Soundtrack LP

The Contra 3 soundtrack was actually my first experience with the game, as I heard the first level’s music blaring down the aisle at our local Venture store on the SNES Demo Kiosk. The rest of the music of the game is fantastic as well and now you can listen to the awesomeness too, minus all the sound effects.
