Castlevania: The Nocturnal Cantata Review

Castlevania- The Nocturnal Cantata by MegaRan and Sammus

Castlevania: The Nocturnal Cantata is an incredible experience from start to finish. Similar to the video games, this full fledged hip hop album feels like a journey inside the inner minds of Dracula, Alucard, the Belmonts, Maria, and by the time you’re done listening you’ve not only spent a day in the universe of Castlevania but grown a greater understanding for the deep themes created within one of gaming’s most well-known franchises of all time.

Tracks ‘Aria of the Bloodline’ and ‘100 Years’ provide the introduction and set the stage for the experience that is The Nocturnal Cantata. Each track shows the two different sides of the vampire bloodline that rampages against mankind. As many of you probably remember from Symphony of the Night, Alucard is faced with the difficulty of stopping his own father Dracula from pursuing the destruction of mankind and torturing of all human souls in revenge for what happened to his wife who was burned at the stake for being accused of witchcraft. Dracula of course rises every 100 years, and is ready to get his hands dirty each time resuming his place as dark lord.

MegaRan’s raw talent and obsessive polish paired with incredible production, mainly by Sammus, are the main reasons why Castlevania: The Nocturnal Cantata flow so well. The Ranger makes his first appearance on this album with a slightly monotone chorus on ‘Richter’ but makes up for it with slick verses that have a lot to say and delivery that is on point solid, especially on the later jam ‘Chasing Fate’. MegaRan’s interludes and Finale personify Alucard even further completely rounding out this experience. Sammus out-does herself with the features on ‘Young Girl’ and ‘Sweet Sorrow’ which feel like the most impressive tracks on the album by far. The chemistry between Sammus as Maria Renard and MegaRan as Alucard allow for total immersion. Every lyric selected rings true to the hip hop format as well as the Castlevania franchise.

I’ll have to admit, when I first heard MegaRan was working on a Castlevania album next I worried about how interesting the game would sound as a music piece. Those doubts have been crushed and now I feel foolish for ever doubting MegaRan and the crew he’s assembled on this project. Mastering is done by K-Murdock for Neosonic Productions with mixing by Brian Gigerich @ Hand Krafted Studios and leaves Castlevania: The Nocturnal Cantata sounding as crisp and clear as n multi-million dollar production.

Thanks to the complexity of the Castlevania: Symphony of the Night video game MegaRan, Sammus, and The Ranger managed to present one of the most compelling hip hop albums released this year. ‘Sweet Sorrow’ is the final culmination of these themes and sounds and wraps The Nocturnal Cantata into a complete package nicely. MegaRan even gave us an awesome bonus track ‘Dance of Pales (No Sleep)’ which helps give us another glimpse into the life of the teacher turned rapper and encourages a positive outlook with a dedicated grind to achieve anything you want in life.

Final Verdict: If you’re a gamer, or just enjoy storytelling hip hop with a message, meaningful and professionally crafted flows, and ridiculously good production, mixing, and mastering then you NEED to listen to Castlevania: The Nocturnal Cantata now. This album receives a 9 out of 10 from RealGamerNewz and although this is our first music review, rest assured it will not be our last.

Overall Score: 9/10
