Some Halloween-related fun from Materia Collective is getting released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the iconic Playstation game, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

Resurrection of the Night is a 13-track arrangement album created by arrangers Wayne Strange (Video Games Live, Zelda Reorchestrated) and Tim Stoney (Zelda Reorchestrated) to pay tribute to the classic soundtrack crafted by series-mainstay Michiru Yamane. The album seeks to cover the most well-known tracks from Symphony of the Night in a fully-orchestral style, from the now iconic Dracula battle music “Dance of Illusions” to the beloved waltz “Dance of Pales” and the energetic “Tragic Prince”.

The music from Richter’s castle will be laid before you with Resurrection of the Night. We intend to delve deeper into the anguish that Alucard must endure with Alucard’s Elegy. Because we would be moving into more story-driven material we would like to make this experience a truly authentic one. That means hiring a professional choir, and, if our dreams are fully realized, a symphony orchestra. But enough talk, have at you! – Wayne Strange, Producer & Arranger

A follow up album titled Resurrection of the Night: Alucard’s Elegy will also be coming to Kickstarter to fund all-new live orchestra and choir recordings for release on CD and vinyl. Alucard’s Elegy will offer tracks from the game’s inverted castle and more for listeners to enjoy.

While it’s hard to improve on a soundtrack that’s already meticulously crafted and well-known, it’s sounding like Resurrection of the Night could prove to pay proper tribute to the game’s legacy. The album is currently available for pre-order on Bandcamp and will fully release on October 30th.
