Sindra talked about it in the Castlevania thread, but most of you missed it and she's too humble to create a dedicated thread.

I have no such restrictions. I will pimp the shit out of this album.

The Castlevania series is famous for its awesome soundtracks (understatement of the century). It is, however, a little-known fact that the Sharp X68000 remake of the first game had not only its own arrangements of the classic themes (dat FM synth sound <3 ), but *also* a bunch of excellent original compositions! Heck, even I didn't know that.

But Sindra knew. And so this year, for the 25th anniversary of that game's release, she recruited a team of musicians with attitude, to cover its entire soundtrack.

What team of musicians, I hear you say? I'm glad you asked. You might recognize a few shizzies in there:

- Snappleman
- Thennecan
- Mega Beardo
- The Plasmas
- Pokerus
- Snappleman
- Viking Guitar
- Prime Legion
- Darmock
- Katamari
- Sixto Sounds
- Snappleman
- Pud
- Finbeard
- Ailsean
- Norg
- Yes, Mayhem
- Snappleman

You need to drop everything you're doing now and listen to Castellum Sanguis LXVIII. It's on Bandcamp, Youtube, and every streaming service on Earth. You have no excuse.

There's a big difference between a show being good and a shoe being enjoyable.

Max is the best of people. :wub:

 

Everyone on this album is the best of people.

 

 

Also, there's going to be another listening party this Saturday at 7pm on https://kngi.org/ for anyone who may have missed the other one. You can chat in their discord during.

I'm imagining Ellis writing the script to this at a computer, and every time he gets to the end of a line about religion being bad he smacks his fedora to tip it, making the sounds of a typewriter being reset.

The fact the album has if nothing else tangentially spawned the term "Rondorection", I consider it a success.
