OC ReMix Presents Vampire Variations: Volume III!

October 31, 2015
Contact: press@ocremix.org

FAIRFAX, VA... Celebrating Dracula's favorite holiday, Halloween, OverClocked ReMix today released its 54th arrangement album, Vampire Variations: Volume III. The album pays tribute to Super Castlevania IV, released by Konami in 1991 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Featuring twenty-four tracks from twenty-three artists, Vampire Variations: Volume III represents the third directorial endeavor of French arranger Alexandre "Chernabogue" Mourey, and is available for free download at http://vampire.ocremix.org.

Vampire Variations: Volume III includes a diverse roster of musicians honoring the work of composers Masanori Adachi and Taro Kudo by arranging it in a variety of musical genres with orchestral elements. Vampire Variations was made by fans, for fans, and is not affiliated with or endorsed by Konami; all original compositions are copyright their respective owners.

Accompanying this newly-released third and final volume in the trilogy are re-released editions of Vampire Variations: Volumes I & II, originally published by KNGI and featuring arrangements of the first Castlevania for the NES, 1993's Rondo of Blood for the PC Engine CD and 1994's Bloodlines for the Sega Genesis, including brand new artwork for all three volumes by Andrew Warwick and a grand total of over 4 1/2 hours of music.

"This is the end of a grand adventure," said director Alexandre Mourey. "It started all out as a simple tribute to Castlevania's 25th anniversary, and we're now celebrating its 30th with the final volume of the Vampire Variations trilogy. Once again, Dracula rises as humans wish to pay him tribute. I truly hope we have been able to do justice to the Castlevania series with this trilogy, and that people will appreciate our hard work."
