Combining the creepy aesthetic of an abandoned police station and blood-thirsty zombies with an even more frightening soundtrack, Resident Evil 2 is not for the faint of heart, but if you are all down for some gore and ambient horror, you might be interested in these new vinyl’s that are coming out celebrating the original soundtrack for both Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2.
Laced Records, in partnership with Capcom, has announced that Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2, the originals, will be getting deluxe double-vinyl collections later this year:
“Composed by the Capcom Sound Team, Masami Ueda, Makoto Tomozawa and Akira Kaida, Resident Evil’s brooding score became a benchmark for horror games, giving the original genre-defining masterpiece a persistent and unnerving sense of claustrophobia.
In contrast, the Resident Evil 2 Original Soundtrack conveys fundamental themes of panic and desperation via varying musical styles. Featuring ambient horror, industrial pieces and rousing militaristic anthems you’ll experience classic orchestral compositions alongside ominous piano underscores, taking you back to Racoon City’s iconic Police Station, Sewer and Underground Laboratory.”
I don’t know how people feel about listening to ominous and chilling music in the comfort of their own home, but hey, go for it.
If you’re interested in pre-ordering these sweet limited-edition vinyl’s, you can do that right here.
