Resident Evil: Code Veronica X and Resident Evil 0 Soundtracks Headed to Vinyl
Laced Records continues its partnership with Capcom with these spectacular upcoming releases.

Laced Records, in partnership with Capcom, is gearing up to bring even more Resident Evil soundtracks over to vinyl and this time the company's sights are set on a couple more classics from the series, with those being Resident Evil: Code Veronica X and Resident Evil 0! We unpack both of these new releases below, which feature some brand-new, jaw-dropping artwork by Boris Moncel.
First up, we have 2001’s Resident Evil: Code Veronica X soundtrack that was composed by Takeshi Miura, Hijiri Anze, and Sanae Kasahara. The music for this game was quite an impressive feat that easily stood up to one of the series’ predecessors, Resident Evil 2, a game which had its music completed by a different crew of musicians.
Some of this writer’s personal favorites from the Resident Evil series are included here, such as “The Suspended Doll,” “The Theme of Tyrant 3: Ver. B,” and “A Moment of Relief,” which highlights this title’s save room music, just to name a few. What were some of your favorites? In any case, have a look below for the cover artwork and full track listing for this release.[blockquote-0]
This limited edition item comes pressed on audiophile-quality, 180g heavyweight green double vinyls that are housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with the stunning new artwork by Boris Moncel. If you’re interested in adding Laced Records’ Resident Evil: Code Veronica X vinyl to your collection for £33.00 (approx. $36 USD), head on over this page.
Secondly, we have 2002’s Resident Evil 0 soundtrack, which was composed by Seiko Kobuchi. While the music for this title was similar in vein to other soundtracks in the series like Resident Evil: Code Veronica X and the original Resident Evil 2, Kobuchi succeeded in establishing a unique identity in many of her compositions as well and this one is certainly an intriguing experience on its own. Check out the track listing and cover artwork for this release below.[blockquote-1]
