A game that I grew up playing nonstop was Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest. Regardless of what the AVGN says, I will always have a soft spot in my heart for that game. And one of the things that I will always remember from that game is the fantastic music by Kenichi Matsubara. Several of those songs are still stuck in my head, even after more than 20 years.

So the other day, I was screwing around on the Internet and I stumbled across an awesome little gem. A band that goes by International Dub Ambassadors have a 7-track live album entitled
The Return Of The Curse Of The Creature’s Ghost where they take several classic video game themes and give them a ska/reggae treatment. While the audio quality isn’t stellar, it’s still pretty awesome hearing these songs that I grew up get such an interesting twist. You can check them out below as well as download the album fo free!
