Laced Records, in partnership with Capcom and officially sanctioned by Umbrella Corporation, today announces that Resident Evil (Original Soundtrack) and Resident Evil 2 (Original Soundtrack) will make their spine-chilling debut as deluxe double-vinyl collections in 2019.
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.
Each soundtrack has been remastered specifically for this release and will be pressed onto audiophile heavyweight, deluxe double-vinyl 180g LPs, in both standard black and special limited editions featuring unique marble colourways, and housed in striking gatefold sleeves. The Resident Evil (Original Soundtrack) and Resident Evil 2 (Original Soundtrack) vinyl infection is currently contained to North American and EMEA territories.
Two of the most influential and critically acclaimed video games of all time, Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2 introduced some of the most memorable experiences and characters in the long-running Resident Evil franchise, which has sold over 83 million units worldwide.
Turn out the lights and turn up the volume. If you haven’t heard this music when you’re alone, afraid, and in the dark, then you haven’t heard it at all…
