Generous anon here and posting one of many uploads at a time...
I posted this one on account it's conveniently available on my hard drive and uploaded.
Castlevania: Judgement - http://www.mediafire.com/?uah2jkgjmjd
This particular game bombed on retail as far as I've seen, nonetheless being a sucker for anything Castlevania I bought it.
Overall it's an experiment that could have done much better had it had a stronger, and consistent
art direction, not to mention the controls as well as game play could have been tighter; Balance issues abounds as well in my opinion.
As for the tracks I'd have to say the following are the strongest in my opinion.
Tracks total - 45 Tracks
1. Darkness of Fear
7. Vampire Killer (Nostalgia mainly)
9. Mad Forest (A bit funky but fun to listen to)
10. Iron Blue Intention (Lively but I prefer the original Sega sound version myself)
13. Bloody Tears (This rendition is quite good)
14. Beginning (Nice lively orchestral rendition)
18. Elemental Tactician (recommended in Taisa's segment with the MC/Alice's duel against Patchouli, it's quite appropriate imo and a good track)
27. Time Reaper
38. Beginning V2 (Heavy Nostalgia)
40. Dance of Illusions V2 (Very grandiose, movie-like battle theme)
Discuss please, later on I'll be posting other OSTs. I hope all enjoy them~!

Seriously though I'll put up Dracula X: Rondo of Blood/Chronicles (PSP Port edition) OST unless others speak up and want another sound track next instead. Would like to see a discussion but I suppose there's only so much one can say about a sound track.

In addendum to post 12:
Classic tracks we're all quite familiar with a few that are rather new in a sense, if not, rarely heard or remixed.
Good sound track, and perhaps I've been spoiled, but I found it rather lacking in strength compared to a couple albums I have. Nonetheless a good soundtrack with variety.

Castlevania - Symphony of the Night -> http://www.mediafire.com/?20idyzqzdzt
38 Tracks total
To be brief, I enjoyed the entire sound track but out of them all, I can honestly say I really liked track 36. Chaconne C.Moll most of all. As far as I know it's exclusive to the Sega Saturn edition of SotN. Speaking of the Sega Saturn Version, I threw in a couple of tracks that were found there and put it along side the original tracks for the PS1 edition. I will admit though I left out a couple as they were merely extra remixes of vampire killer, beginning and bloody tears. I may share those left out another time if requested.

Tragic Prince is so underrated. Regardless of what anyone says, I'll always secretly consider Tragic Prince more of Alucard's theme than Dracula's Castle. I can remember way back when I first got to the Clock Tower in SotN, heard the music and thought: "Okay, NOW I we're getting down to business."

I can post the original sound track (DS sound blech)
the "arrangement" version which feels weak to me.
This there had been this other collection for PoR I found that sounded awesome but didn't have a CD printing; may have come from the legendary package preorder for it a while back. Not sure...
Nonetheless I will actually post something else while I find it in the abyss that is my "attache' case"
And with that I give...
Castlevania - Rebirth (WiiWare edition) http://www.mediafire.com/?ijjlajlkewz
THAT'S RIGHT FOLKS this is actually the music that is used in the latest Castlevania title that is already released in Japan.
Essentially a remake of the first Gameboy Castlevania game the music has an "arcade" sound superior to the Sega sounds as well as SNES, at least in quality that is. Whether it's something you'll enjoy is up to you. Personally I loved its renditions of "New Messiah", "Aquarius", & "Riddle".
Enjoy~! Just so it buys me time to find the particular PoR album but I may just put up the DS/Arrangement collection instead if I don't find the other album

I was not saying the music was bad, I just felt the DS sound quality is not up to par to say some albums within the touhou music collection I have. Though that's just a nitpick of mine...
Nonetheless I may post the DS/Arrangement collection anyways as I can't seem to find the other album I had been referring to...
Off topic, but does any one want anything from "Susumu Hirasawa" the guy that did practically all the music related to "Berserk" from the games to anime? I think I actually have the entire discography of that guy as his "Berserk" stuff is just part of the collection...
If I'm busy with something else to tag the Castlevania albums correctly I can just upload something from him while I get the Castlevania stuff ready.

I can agree on Beginning and Vampire Killer, but the Bloody Tears one is definitely more progressive than what's heard even in newer games.
I'd like to request the Bloody Tears track. >>26

you have a valid point, other wise I wouldn't have bothered to make my collection if I actually didn't like hearing game rips. I remember I used to stick an audio cassette recorder next to the speakers of the TV and managed to record the sound tracks of Sonic 2/S3/S&K/streetfighter2 etc
But hey enough of my life story right?

The requested Bloody Tears tracks from the Sega Saturn edition! http://www.mediafire.com/?dw2myji1zwd
Castlevania - Portrait of Ruin
Track Total - 37 Tracks http://www.mediafire.com/?wanf4o0ziuw
I have to say I wish I could hear true orchestral/hard-rock/metal variations of the following.
Banquet of Madness
Behind the Gaze
Gaze up at Darkness
The Gears go Awry
Nonetheless the soundtrack theme surrounding it is simply how all of them are quite lively or energetic, which I suppose one can say it could reflect upon John's/Char's experience.
Great OST, Enjoy~!

Dawn of Sorrow.
Something about the soundtrack for that game just made me smile, yet I can't put my finger on it. Obviously, the remixes of classic themes were a big part of it, but the original stuff like Into The Dark Night was also pretty great.

Castlevanua - Dawn of Sorrow OST http://www.mediafire.com/?b2u00mae0un
It's actually Disc2 as the first disc had the Aria of Sorrow. Left it out as DoS OST was asked; not to mention made uploading simpler.
Assuming MF didn't mess up this time it should be there.
As for the actual sound track, it's pretty good, but I find myself preferring Aria of Sorrow's sound track. Just a personal preference really.

That's alright I'll just post some other albums and soundtracks in the spirit of sharing all that is Castlevania; musically speaking.
Castlevania - Legends OST http://www.mediafire.com/?hidzmfnnyuz
20 Tracks + 3 remixes
This collection is essentially the original chiptune track of Castlevania Legends, a game that had been retconned officially along with Castlevania 64 in terms of the time line; though that makes one wonder if that's the case why is Cornell in Castlevania: Judgement...
I'll be making my thoughts on certain tracks of the OST.
In any rate the tracks are simple but feel strong on their own. On another note, the composers sure like banquets as "Banquet of Spirits" is a simple waltz that fits right in Castlevania; the remix titled "Castle Enterance" does the chiptune some justice imo.
"Encounters" is another track that feels some what out of place in terms of motif, but on the other hand it seems suitable for the more enemy heavy hallways and passages. Same deal with "Holed Up" except taking a more classical approach.
"Dark Nightmare is probably the most lively of the tracks considering the stage itself is rife with pitfalls and enemies that could and would knock poor Sonia Belmont to her doom.
"Future Harmony" is one of the Boss fight themes used, in particularly when Sonia faces Alucard in his test to see if she's capable of facing Dracula himself. Curiously though the duel occurs around stage 4 or 5 I forget; a bit far from Dracula if you ask me.
"Vampire Killer", very well known track but is used this time as the final battle theme and the composers this time seem to really try their best to deviate from the original sound of VK, but keep it "epic" in terms of being the final battle. I have to say it's one of the most creative take on Vampire Killer that I've heard imo.
I would actually post an image of my old Gameboy copy of "Castlevania Legends" but alas.. words...
I hope you anon enjoy this track~!
*Note: I have Castlevania - Dracula X Chronicles PSP Edition
OST, which is the redone music of "Rondo of Blood OST", ready for the next posting. Just taking some time away that's all.

Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles OST PSP Edition http://www.mediafire.com/?hnijzm2thwo
27 Tracks Total.
Much like the last posting of mine I will be giving my review.
I find it rather interesting that one of the tracks is appropriately titled "Fail" as it's the theme used when the player dies.It also makes me laugh whenever I hear it.
Other then that the sound track is very good considering they had revamped the entire soundtrack; using choirs as well as strong orchestral music along side the riveting guitars and drums.
Not only that they added some tracks from previous games such as "Poison Mind", which imo is given great justice in their rendition this time around. "Dance of Illusions" is actually the same version that is utilized in C-Judgement (Ver2 that is). It's a rendition that is truly fitting for the final confrontation against Dracula. They also seem to have made an added effort to flesh out "March of the Holy Man" as something of a very epic ending track.
"Tues Dues Meus" is probably the most drastic I've heard as a great track that replaces "Dancing in Phantasmic Hell" for the regular boss theme from the original game.
The whole soundtrack is very well done for the hand held edition of possibly the best game out of the entire Castlevania series. (Though I still prefer Castlevania 4)
*I'm planning into delving further within the 3D territory now though I may back track to earlier titles instead. Unless there some requests it will be a surprise till then.

Oh yeah one other note, I only made the edited version on account of that the first segment is what I had always imagined way back when I reached "The Doomsday Zone" on S&K. Sure the sega original sound was pretty good but in my mind it was something else altogether. Here's the original for comparison if any one's interested. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FAffWEmB3I

Castlevania - Curse of Darkness OST
Disc 1 - http://www.mediafire.com/?jtyzmty0qut
Disc 2 - http://www.mediafire.com/?dzvizjqqzvy
Total track number - 56
There are quite a few tracks that are prominent within the collection.
1-05: Abandoned Castle ~ The Curse of Darkness
1-07: Encounter with the Innocent Devil (mainly from being used elsewhere, or at least part of it.)
1-08: Followers of Darkness - The First -
1-09: Baljhet Mountains
1-15: Legendary Belmondo (I can see a Belmont whipping to this)
1-17: Garibaldi Temple
1-28: Cordova Town
1-29: Waltz of the Lazy Chair Room (Fun little waltz)
2-01: Young Nobleman of Madness (I have something extra to say for this track)
2-21: A Toccata into Blood Soaked Darkness
The tracks I mentioned are those that stick out the most to me as I feel they are the best the OST has to offer. Not to say the rest of the tracks are bad, as they are quite good, nonetheless the previously mentioned ones are very good.
One thing bothered me about "track 1-07" is that I can't help but feel I have heard the background sound in the song before in Resident Evil 4 and before that in the first Fatal Frame on the PS2. Maybe it's just me...
Track 1-15, very good track for the Belmonts, in this case Trevor though it also makes me think of a Megaman X track in a good way.
- - -
Track 2-01 "Young Nobleman of Madness", my god when I listened to it again I was suddenly struck with a thought; in particularly with Taisa's Touhouvania
read if you care to, otherwise skip ahead. Earl Grey making a cameo as the main guardian of the Inner Quarters. Why not? Sure he's a butler but why shouldn't he be perfect for guarding? Ah well I'm sure Taisa's got something much better in mind in store for the hunter and Alice
It's of the more livelier tracks that caught my attention quicker than a swarm of killer bees attacking would be hive destroyers. For some reason though this track and another reminds me of an old 80's song.
- - -
2-21 A Toccata into Blood Soaked Darkness - This is the other track that actually reminds me more of Bonnie Tyler's - "I Need A Hero". Real hard to explain why but nonetheless very well done track. A must listen to~!
Once again overall, some tracks are just padding but beyond it is some awesome music.
*Note - Any requests or once again go random?
I'll help by posting ones I haven't done so
Castlevania IV (SNES)
Lament of Innocence
Legacy of Darkness (which includes both tracks used in the original C64 version and a couple of new ones used for the redo)
Castlevania Bloodlines (SEGA)
Circle of the Moon
Harmony of Dissonance
Aria of Sorrow
Special albums sets 1 - 2 - 3 (basically albums that were not used in games but contains music redone officially in classical to hardrock/metal styles)
**Special Note - I did manage to get some music tracks that were going to be used for "Castlevania Resurrection" for the Sega Dreamcast before it was canceled, however I'm having trouble finding it in my back ups. I may just upload it as a surprise when and if I find them again.

Castlevania - Circle of the Moon OST (19 Tracks) http://www.mediafire.com/?c00kfozgnhm
This sound track originally is joined by "Harmony of Dissonance" OST but I left it out as it was not requested; however I wouldn't mind posting them if some one wants them.
Moving right along
It's a relatively light OST as this collection has its gems such as Track 10. Fate of Despair is an interesting track as it keeps things varied and moving. Probably a favorite out of the sound track along with track 12. The rendition of Clockwork Mansion here, imo, is slightly more impressive compared to the original version that appeared in Super Castlevania 4 (Stage 4-1). Only thing that's holding back is the GBA's synth capabilities.
Track 13, Big Battle, is a nice throwback to the old days of Castlevania though it's a shame that it's real short. Track 14 "Nightmare", if I recall correctly, originally debuted in Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse in the catacomb stages. (I'm pretty sure it was in CV3). It's ominous and strong in invoking a rather dark atmosphere. Reminds me of the sewer stage in CV64:LoD.
Overall it's a short ost with some nice gems. I can't say I was impressed at all with Dance of Illusions and VK here though.
Any other requests?

Side C - http://www.mediafire.com/?gvkrrzyo2jt
Side D - http://www.mediafire.com/?1zm1cmnmdzu
Total Tracks - 48 I had to split them up because mediafire started behaving real stupidly.
The ost is a rather unique one of the Castlevania series in that there are no rocking guitars as "they do not
fit within 13th Century Europe"; except for one track. Nonetheless despite having little in a way of rocking
guitars, the entire soundtrack is very good in composition and style.
Track 1-07 Stone King Golem is rather both dramatic and playful in nature at the same time.
Track 1-09 Garden Forgotten By Time is a very flamboyant track it makes me hope to see some inspiration on Taisa's Castlevania based CYOA for such a place; Considering Remilia's bound to have a garden out back; perhaps larger than it would appear from a distance.
Track 1-18 Dark Palace of Waterfalls; Makes me wonder if that stream would have lead to such a place eh..? In any rate the track's quite beautiful in its progression from the simple string instruments to the pleasant calling of the organ that ought to remind the player of the domain's placement within Castlevania.
Track 1-19 Melancholy Joachim to me seems like a near total remix of "Dark Palace of Waterfalls" just made much more aggressive considering who's theme it belongs to.
The entire sound track really is practically perfect in almost every way. There is not one track that I would really dismiss easily.
What really amazed me had been the remake of "The Cross of Fate" that had appeared in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow as the first castle area's theme.
Seriously it's a sound track worth having as part of one's music collection.

Yeah I would have mentioned them all but this time it's not me being forgetful as it had to do with me wondering what's the word/character limit for each post. Plus I felt I should be brief as well.
I'll be making another thread for the Silent Hill collection later on, though I feel I should say something about it here.
One of the major reasons I've even made this thread had been originally to share the music of the series as well as considering there had been a few cyoas that had some roots involving the series, even if just one character that manages to fit in (EoSD aka SDM-LA) or middle ground with touhous (Touhouvania).
I've asked myself if I should share the Silent Hill sound tracks despite there being no cyoa. I don't wish to take away the focus of TH-P's boards nor wishing to disrupt things around here as well. At the same time though, perhaps the music of the series will inspire some writefags or even newfags to write something in the spirit of the series of both SH and TP.
Who's to say it wouldn't be grand; heck FOG is working out to be awesome right? Then again there was that stalker series
which went down the toilet; though I've never know how well the series was liked to begin with.
So yes in the spirit of hopefully inspiring old and new writefags I will be sharing the Silent Hill series soundtrack in another thread while I leave this to be for Castlevania; or at least till it hits autosage when I try putting up something new.
Hope to see more interest in the threads~!

So yeah I've been hitting the lie juice as of late so here it is; assuming you guys are still waiting for them. In fact these albums are quite old, (released in 1994 & 1995 respectively)
, I'm not even sure if they are already widely known, or perhaps I've been finding hidden treasure since I've had internet access back then...

Aside from simply stating that it's practically all hard rock covers, no notes on the tracks as they are all awesome.
I remember growing and going through high school listening to these two albums. I would just listen to them every day either while taking a ride home on the bus or simply getting through the bullshit that would come every once in a while in those simpler days.
From BS assignments to girls giving flak for little mistakes, nothing like listening to the albums to make things a lot more forgiving and tolerable to say the least. At most, they overpowered all trouble by simply being awesome; from bouts of rage becoming focused and clear to finding renewed morale. Some how some way these albums got me through everything I've seen and I've yet to get tired of them in the past twelve, yes twelve
years. They've been my bread and butter for my listening pleasure; Much like AC/DC but that's another story
To Taisa - (Should listen to "March of the Holy Man", Reincarnated Soul", or "Don't Wait Until Night" while reading this) I don't know what got you feeling down, but if anything, music's always made things a hell of a lot more tolerable; if not simply melt away for me... If ya got any special requests just ask man~! Doesn't even have to be Castlevania, could be anything ya want. I know you won't give up on Gensokyo High nor pull an "author's rage/quit/houdini ect" if anything else. You may not even ever take up my offer, but it's always there if ya need it. Just make a post on one of my threads!

"Don't Wait Until Night" in the first one is corrupt.

I'll fix that by putting up another link for it.
Also I'll be uploading Castlevania 64/Legacy of Darkness next. I also managed to find the special Portrait of Ruin Arrangement Disc where it had a higher quality and sound to the sound track.
