This has been on my my YouTube channel for some time now, so I may as well use my SoundCloud as a higher-quality player and downloaded for the file.
On a a side note, this version is more updated than the version on Youtube, so chances are you're gonna hear some differences.
The original video, just topping 10,000 views on YT, (thanks for that by the way I'd have never though something like that would even get 1000 or more) is probably one of the things I'm most proud of when it comes to the channel. It's not particularly good in my eyes, but other people seem to like it a lot, so to celebrate, I made a second rendition of Final Confrontation with some added bits and pieces from the wiiware version of Last Battle. My goal was to sort of re-mix the 3 versions of last battle, but with imposing and very hard-going instruments, without resorting to metal.
I'll be damned if Rondo of Blood's soundtrack isn't one of the best in the entire Castlevania franchise, a Richter Belmont's signature theme, Opposing Bloodlines is no exceptions. (Or Strange Bloodlines, Divine Bloodlines and Bloodlines Bequelthed, depending on the game).
I mostly took inspiration from Harmony of Despair's and Portrait of Ruin's versions mainly because those two are the most content-heavy out of all the versions.
I *was* going to upload this for Halloween, but I'm still not quite sure if this is done yet.
In the state that it's in right now it's fine I guess but I just want to add in so much more.
I might keep on working on this until the final product completely satisfies me but right now enjoy what I've got so far.
The buildup's slow, so if you want to skip to the more intense part, I suggest you skip to 1:23. Or you could listen to the whole thing. Either works for me.
And yes, before anyone asks, I did fuse some SCVIV in there for the fans of that game.

This is an update to the Heart of Fire remix from last year that I did for Halloween, following some of the constructive criticism I received regarding the percussion and volume of the track. I'm sure a lot of you listening have noticed the echo the the main brass melody, which was in the original arrangement, even if it was barely audible then.
This arrangement began as a tribute to not just my favorite Castlevania character, but for one of my favorite game characters of all time.
Keep fighting on, grandpa Belmont!
A lot of people give the wiiware version of Cave Story's soundtrack a lot of shit, and while I felt it was a little underwhelming at times, I'm not gonna deny tracks like Moonsong were given much better arrangments
This is the first time I've ever tried remixing anything from the Sonic series, so forgive me if this sounds kinda off, it's still early. The feel of the song is much quieter on this, I get it, but my intention was to create a sense of buildup, with a more gradual pacing.
So, after hearing some of Capsule 998 on YouTube, I just got into the mood for another Castlevania remix. Aquarius is one of my favorite songs in the series, so I've been wanting to remix/rearrange this for a while now.
This track in particular always made me feel depressed or guilty in some way.
I'm not sure if the synth strings are used to their best extent here, but nonetheless I tied me best to retain the original's grim tone with an air of quiet despair to it.
Hopefully I'll touch it up before I can call it finished.
