Bloody Tears is one of the easily recognizable tracks from the game Castlevania 2. The song is an original composition from the talented video game composer Kenichi Matsubara. Like most songs by Kenichi, this song is a midi tune that has a slightly fast pace. Therefore, if you are thinking of covering it on Guitar, you better brace it with some great guitar strings. Here is the amazon link for the strings. Just wanted to let you know that I would get a small commission if you decide to buy the strings.
If you’ve played Castlevania 2 game, you will notice that this particular song is repeated multiple times within the game. However, the game’s programmers only scheduled it to play in daytime scenes as a daytime background theme.
Additionally, Bloody Tears has had its fair share of usages in other arcade games within the Castlevania Series. For instance, it was featured in Haunted Castle’s stage 3 scene, “the Banquet Room”, not to mention that the song plays in Super Castlevania IV’s “Clock Tower scene”.
In my opinion, this song would certainly sound better on an overdriven guitar than in an acoustic one. This is especially true if you intend to bring out that original gaming thrill. All the same, the sweetness of the song will presumably be determined by how well you coordinate the keys.
Other remarkable songs off Castlevania II include Dwelling of Doom, Message of Darkness, Requiem, Last Boss, and “Within these castle walls”. Of course, the entire game’s soundtrack enlists multiple composers apart from Matsubara. Some notable composers in the game include the legendary band, Konami Kukeiha Club, Bitmaster, and Brentafloss, just to mention a few.
Bloody Tears is one of those songs whose tenure in the video game realm is still very far from over. With the Castlevania gaming series evolving now and then, you can expect this track to appear in future versions. The last release in the Castlevania series was “Grimoire of Souls” released in 2019.
