Two Classic Resident Evil Soundtracks Are Coming to Vinyl
Laced Records is bringing these soundtracks back from the dead in April.
By Jay Gervais
Laced Records, in partnership with Capcom, is bringing the soundtracks for 2002’s Resident Evil and the original Resident Evil 2 to vinyl for the very first time this April. This is exciting news for those of us who have been patiently waiting for more Resident Evil music to arrive on this format. Let’s have a look at each of these releases.
First up, we have 2002’s Resident Evil soundtrack, which was composed by Shusaku Uchiyama, Makoto Tomozawa, and Misao Senbongi. As fans of the game know, this title originally came out for the Nintendo GameCube and later saw an HD remaster back in 2015 for every major platform with the exception of Nintendo’s newest hybrid console, which is an omission that will soon be rectified.
For this release, you have the option to snag either the Limited Edition Deluxe Double Vinyl or the Deluxe Double Vinyl, both of which are priced at €33.00. It’s worth noting this release does not feature the complete soundtrack for the game and is representative of how it was originally presented in the Biohazard Sound Chronicle Best Track Box set from 2005. Have a look below for images of these products from the retailer, along with the complete track listing.[blockquote-0]
Next up is a bit of a personal favorite for this writer, as well as a favorite for some of our other staff here at Dead Entertainment. We’re of course talking about the soundtrack for 1998’s Resident Evil 2, which was composed by Masami Ueda, Shusaku Uchiyama, Syun Nishigaki, and Naoshi Mizuta. You have likley heard some of this music already if you opted on swapping the soundtrack to the original arrangements in the recent remake of the game. Either that, or you’ve been a long-time fan of the series and are already quite familiar with the original game and its music.
Anyway, like the other release, this one is also available as a Limited Edition Deluxe Double Vinyl and Deluxe Double Vinyl for €33.00. This one also doesn’t include the complete soundtrack and the track listing is identical to numerous other catalog releases for this title. Check out the images of these products below, along with the track listing.[blockquote-1]
All of these products can be pre-ordered from Laced Records while supplies last and are each priced at €33.00, plus the cost of shipping. These items are expected to ship sometime in April, so get it now before it’s gone forever. In addition, the retailer is based in the United Kingdom, so you may notice your shipping costs are a little higher than usual if you decide to import it.
Are you adding any of these to your vinyl collection? Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all the latest news on the Resident Evil franchise.
