Laced Records and Capcom are teaming up to release the soundtracks to the first two Resident Evil games! Each will be getting deluxe double-vinyl collections this year, appearing on 2xLP 180 gram releases. They will both be released in, “…standard black and special limited editions featuring unique marble colourways.”
“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 Raccoon City’s iconic Police Station, Sewer and Underground Laboratory.“
Images of both releases can be seen below. Pre-orders are also already open, so if you want one of these limited records, you best hurry up! They begin shipping in May.
