Just got my hands on The tails from the Boarderlands game. Now I got this song stuck in my head. Not like it's a bad thing...

Had this song stuck in my head for a couple days. It's about the infamous Countess Elizabeth Bathory, who legends say killed hundreds of young women to bathe in their blood in an attempt to stay young. She was also referenced, or possibly made an appearance (in the original Japanese naming) in "Castlevania Bloodlines" in the character of Elizabeth Bartley.


~Bathory in the castle of your death~
~You're still alive Elizabeth~

So catchy.

Hmm wonder if we should make a "songs about Castlevania-related subjects" thread.

I now got this song stuck in my head. And that was well before I ever saw the music vid for it.  :-[

I've been really into Carpenter Brut lately and the Trilogy compilation of all his EPs. It's a splendid mix of John Carpenter, Italo-disco, Italian horror film composers like Fabio Frizzi, and video game chiptunes.

I love how this video takes all the best parts from the not so good movie, Murder Rock and edits them into an awesome music video. (Warning: bare-ass boobies present.)

I've been madly in love with Radiohead's new album, a moon shaped pool.

But this song musically sounds like it could have been from a pirate ship level in Castlevania or something. At least to me it sounds that way.

I can see how that track sounds like we're on a CastleVania boat, but is there anything to fight on it?  Seems like more of a dreary calm. 

These weeks I've mostly been grooving supercell- Juuzoku Ningen
Just some rocking J-Pop with a rapid groove and a chick who sounds like she's really enjoying herself, especially near the middle.   

(It appears to be a criticism of conformity. o_o)

Re: Castlevania soundalikes and to pimp Carpenter Brut further, I think this track has a bit of Castle Dracula appeal. It's more similar to Claudio Simonetti's film scores, but I've always felt those were a huge inspiration on Castlevania music in ways, so in a roundabout way this track's similar to the more club-oriented tracks from select CV games.

It would a be a dreary calm like you say. A seemingly abandoned, lost ship. But then at about 3 minutes in, the player opens a door and is surprise attacked by the ghost of a hungy vampire!

Something like that. I love that song. It has peace within the longing of desperation.

Been listening to quite a bit of electronic stuff lately:


Enjoying Suicide Commando quite a bit...a lot of it seems either excellent or meh, not really much in between. But man...when it's good, it's damn good.


Enjoying Nachtmahr a lot, from what little I've heard. Though I have to admit, an Austrian group wearing military uniforms kind of made me wonder what they were going for at first...great stuff, though.


I went back and checked out more of Electric Hellfire Club's stuff before they went full-on metal, and I'm liking it a lot more than the aforementioned. Personally, it's the same way with them for me as it is with Suicide Commando: their songs are either great or kind of boring.


This one really grew on me...this usually isn't my sort of thing, but damn if this song isn't catchy.

Just recently got a hankerin' for ol' Judy:



I really have a soft spot for the more "evil" Judas Priest songs, like this and Love Bites (my dad listened to that one a lot when I was a kid). Rob Halford can be sinister as hell when he wants to be, and it's always a lot of fun to hear. He's the man!



This song and Leather Rebel are what turned me to this album in the first place. I loved those songs when I played Brutal Legend about 5 or so years back, and I never got around to listening to them again until now. Great stuff...I never knew the Painkiller album was so good.

"Elizabeth" has a strong King Diamond / Mercyful Fate sound to it. It's very clearly built like one of King's songs.

Painkiller.... Ah..... This album is insane. It's basically Judas Priest saying - we invented Heavy Metal back in the seventies and there's no way we're gonna let them kids like Metallica say they're heavier than us!
If you're talking about their evil songs... Where's Touch of Evil?

I love Halls of Valhalla from their last album. It's that Painkiller sound all over again.

Touch of Evil is okay, but I really like the vicious vibe that they had with stuff like Nightcrawler and (especially) Love Bites.

What did you think of the sound that they had on Jugulator? I bought that one way back...didn't even realize Halford wasn't with the group at that point until I listened to it. I kind of had the same reaction you were describing when I first heard it, like..."THIS is Judas Priest?" Pretty heavy sound for Priest, although Painkiller is still the better album.

Jugulator is heavy as hell, but it's not as crazy as Painkiller. It's thrashier, but Painkiller is faster, has catchier riffs and solos.

The only song that I like off Jugulator is Burn in Hell. I like how it starts off light, and only after two minutes the guitar kicks in. This is also the song in which Ripper Owens is the best at being Halford. He manages to hit his famed high notes in yellling "BURN IN HELL!!".... Even Halford himself said, "when I saw him, I thought - that's me".  8)

A more fitting sequel to the sound of Painkiller is Halford's Resurrection album.
