Netflix’s CASTLEVANIA Theme Song Is an Eerie Ode to the Game (Exclusive)

We’re inching closer to the release of Netflix‘s Castlevania animated series, based on the hit Nintendo video game franchise. Growing up playing the original game as a kid, one underrated aspect was the compelling in-game music that made the gothic game even more severe and surreal.

The animated series, which comes from Dredd executive producer Adi Shankar and writer Warren Ellis, will look to echo the tone of the music in the console game with a title track titled “The True Science” by two-time Emmy award-winning composer Trevor Morris of Lakeshore Records. This won’t be the first time Trevor has provided the score for a Netflix series, having done the same for Marvel Television’s Iron Fist. His video game credits also include SimCity Societies, Army of Two, Need for Speed: Carbon, and Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Morris told us that the world of Castlevania provides an endless supply of musical motivation. “Being asked to contribute to Castlevania was such a great call to get.  As a composer it’s just a cool, colorful and interesting world to get into, and provides endless inspiration for music.  It was just such a fun and cool project to work on, I could score Castlevania for years and years.

Ellis added, “Trevor is a master of his art: hugely innovative, yet with a deep understanding of early music, combined with a love of electronics, creating something weirdly primal but completely contemporary.”

You can give the title track “The True Science” from Castlevania–Netflix Original Series Soundtrack a listen for yourself below, and I guarantee you will feel like you’ve just been teleported to Castlevania yourself. Hopefully you won’t end up on the receiving end of a whip lashing from Simon Belmont. The track is set to be released digitally on July 7, the same day Castlevania premieres on Netflix.
