Following the success of the first album in October 2011, Alexandre Mourey (Chernabogue) and KNGI.org are proud to present Vampire Variations: Volume II – a whole new tribute album to the Castlevania series, released on October 31, 2013.

This new album focuses on two major games from Konami's series: Rondo of Blood (PC Engine, 1993) and Bloodlines (Genesis, 1994), and on the music composed by Akiropito, Keizo Nakamura, Tomoko Sano, Mikio Saito (Rondo of Blood), and Michiru Yamane (Bloodlines).

But this time, we decided to put it to the next level: 2 albums, more than one and a half hour of music, more than 25 musicians and performers, and full album artwork. Everything was done by fans, for fans, to celebrate the games' anniversary.

The project's musicians were asked to arrange the tracks the way they wanted to, and to create their own vision of the soundtrack. The project features several different genres, including orchestra, metal, funk, electronic music, and many other. In order to respect the work of the artists, no final mixing or mastering was applied to the project.

The project's artwork was created to bring the universe of Castlevania to life, but also to give Vampire Variations its own visual identity. Unlike the first project, different covers were designed for the second one to allow listeners to chose the one they prefer.

I would like to thank all the people who made this happen, who trusted me, and who dedicated their work for the project. I truly hope you will enjoy this new musical experience, as much as I enjoyed directing this project. The Dark Lord is rising once again. Hold your crucifixes close. What an horrible night to be cursed once more...

website's back up, needs to be updated though... the people need their musics!

Great job on another release; even with the technical difficulties today, it's all good since you know we'll be pimping it in the months (and mixes) to follow!

Can't speak for the other artists, but I'd be cool with final mastering. If it's something you feel that needs to be done with a track of mine for the sake of any project as a whole, just no worries. Of course, I heard part of VV2 during the listening party and I think it still delivers a pretty solid package nevertheless... That said, I've just downloaded this so excuse me coz I'm listening to everything this time ;)

Oh, but beforehand:

For me there's still an announcement on top of the album cover. Perhaps you mean it's in the process of being updated?

Loving every note. Is there presently or will there be a torrent that I can seed?

No plans for a torrent, as its not really necessary for the smaller scale releases we tend to have. Just direct all your friends to the website and download away!
