Can't Wait Until the Night (夜まで待てない Yoru Made Matenai?) is a music theme composed by the Konami Kukeiha Club for Haunted Castle. It was later arranged by Michiru Yamane for Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow alongside Heart of Fire, another classic song that is fused with the track. It is recognized as Julius Belmont's music theme in the game, as well as in Castlevania: Harmony of Despair.

Sheet music

Sheet music for this theme was revealed in the Design Document included in Arcade Classics Anniversary Collection.



  • The beginning of the music is very similar to the level 4 of Journey to Silius, but on a faster rhythm. However, the latter having left two years after Haunted Castle, it is unknown whether it is a mere coincidence or if the composer of Journey to Silius was inspired by this passage to compose his own.
