It’s a good time to be a Resident Evil fan, and even moreso now for fans of the soundtracks to the original two games. Laced Records has teamed up with Capcom to release Resident Evil (Original Soundtrack) and Resident Evil 2 (Original Soundtrack) deluxe double-vinyl collections.

Composed by the Capcom Sound Team, Masami Ueda, Makoto Tomozawa and Akira Kaida, Resident Evil’s brooding score became a benchmark for horror games, giving the original genre-defining masterpiece a persistent and unnerving sense of claustrophobia.

Incontrast, the Resident Evil 2 Original Soundtrack conveys fundamental themes of panic and desperation via varying musical styles. Featuring ambient horror, industrial pieces and rousing militaristic anthems you’ll experience classic orchestral compositions alongside ominous piano underscores, taking you back to Racoon City’s iconic Police Station, Sewer and Underground Laboratory.

Each soundtrack has been remastered for the release, with high-quality artwork from the games on the vinyl gatefold sleeves as well as standard edition and limited edition marble colourways.

Each deluxe release will cost about $35.00USD and are available for pre-order now with an as-yet unannounced shipping date. The Resident Evil (Original Soundtrack) and Resident Evil 2 (Original Soundtrack) vinyl is available on the Laced Records website.

Given I wasn’t too impressed with the soundtrack of the recently-released Resident Evil 2 remake and ended up downloading the original soundtrack to play with the game instead, this announcement is a welcome one and I look forward to giving these a listen once they are released.
