"The famous "Vampire Killer" song from the series motif is part of this music."
Michiru Yamane's comments on the Sound Select

Admiration Towards the Clan (otherwise known as Admiration of a Clan) is a music theme composed by Michiru Yamane for Castlevania: Lament of Innocence. It is played during the game's end credits. It later replaced I am the Wind as Castlevania: Symphony of the Nightʼs ending credits theme in its Xbox Live port.

A notable factoid about this track is that it contains instrumental arrangements of both Vampire Killer and Bloody Tears, both of which are well-known tracks in the Castlevania franchise.

  • The track's title is an obvious reference to the Belmont Clan itself, due to their dedication to banishing Dracula in the years to come. In that case, the song can be perceived as a homage to not only Leon Belmont, but to all of his descendants.
