Castlevania arrangements

Unreleased tracks

Some of the tracks which are "unreleased" are simply loops from the PlayStation and the Sega Saturn version of the game, and some of them are just different arrangements, or alternate versions of the original songs that were ripped by fans noticing the lack of these in the OST; there was no official release of them on any album. Blood Relations, for example, in the OST ends inexplicably without playing the song in its entirety, and many others needed a better loop.

  1. The Master Librarian (has two versions, one for the PlayStation and other for the Sega Saturn, which has minor variations of instruments)
  2. Chaconne in C moll (Saturn song)
  3. Vampire Killer Rock (Saturn song)
  4. Vampire Killer Techno-Goth (Saturn song)
  5. Beginning Techno-Goth (Saturn song)
  6. Beginning Jazz (Saturn song)
  7. Bloody Tears Hard-Rock, vers. A (Saturn song)
  8. Bloody Tears Hard-Rock, vers. 2 (Saturn song)
  9. Guardian (Saturn song)
  10. Dracula's Castle [Bonus] (track 2 on PSX disc)
  11. Dracula's Castle (alternate loop)
  12. Festival of Servants (alternate loop)
  13. Crystal Teardrop (alternate loop)
  14. Blood Relations (alternate loop)

About "Waltz of Pearls"

Early versions of the soundtrack mistranslated this title as "Dance of Pales".

About "Abandoned Pit"

While the English version named the track based partially on the English name of the area in the Japanese version, the Japanese track is credited as 焉道 (Departed Way), which is the name in Japanese of the area. The track is listed as Departed Way in the Akumajō Dracula Best Music Collections Box.
