Materia Collective is thrilled to announce Thrashlevania (Music from Castlevania), a metal album that’s been recorded to accompany performer Louie Aronowitz’s lightning-quick 15-minute speedruns of the original Castlevania on the NES. Expect a fast and furious Halloween treat of bite-sized proportions! The album is fully licensed and available now:
“The biggest and most ambitious aspect of this record is that it’s timed to how I play through the game,” notes Aronowitz. “I speedrun Castlevania in about 15 minutes, and wanted to organize the record in such a way as to press play and just leave it running while I go through it. It also has possibly the most difficult guitar parts I’ve ever played… maybe.”
Kinuyo Yamashita’s iconic soundtrack to the original Castlevania is thrashed out in its entirety, including fan-favorite tracks such as “Vampire Killer,” “Wicked Child,” and “Heart of Fire.”
