Castlevania: The Original Game Soundtrack (悪魔城ドラキュラ黙示録 Original Game Soundtrack Akumajō Dorakyura Mokushiroku Orijinaru Gēmu Saundotorakku?, lit. "Devil's Castle Dracula Apocalypse Original Game Soundtrack") contains the music from Konami's 1999 video game Castlevania. It was released in Japan[1] and in Europe[2] only.

Tomoya Tomita was the game's sound producer and director; while Masahiro Kimura, Motoaki Furukawa, and Mariko Egawa composed the music. Their score is predominantly minimalist and ambient in composition. It features a wide variety of electronic instrumentation, ranging from the period harpsichord to contemporary beat synths. A notable exception is the violin solo in "Introduction", which was studio-recorded. The piece was performed by Tomokuni Katayama and is featured prominently at the game's title screen.

Although many of the songs from Castlevania are featured on this album, some background music and most of the incidental music from the game did not make it onto the soundtrack. A few of the prominent missing songs include a variation of the boss theme "Shudder", as well as the background music that plays during scenes in which the hero converses with Renon or Charles Vincent.
