Silent Hill 2 Soundtrack Vinyl Release Teased Just in Time for 20th Anniversary

Silent Hill 2 Soundtrack Vinyl Release Teased Just in Time for 20th Anniversary

Mondo's long-awaited Silent Hill 2 vinyl release could be soon.

Austin-based company Mondo (known for releasing limited edition prints, vinyls, and more) teased the upcoming release of the Silent Hill 2 soundtrack on vinyl in a mixtape released earlier this week on the company's SoundCloud. It will be the second Silent Hill soundtrack the company releases.

Mondo published a new "Mondo Mix" on SoundCloud that includes 30 minutes of music stitched together from snippets of upcoming releases. You can listen to the mix in the link below. You'll notice that at the eight-minute mark, the distinct sound of Akira Yamaoka's "Theme of Laura" begins to play.

Konami has been releasing its backlog of soundtracks on vinyl through Mondo for several years now. Both the original Castlevania and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night soundtracks are available on vinyl through Mondo. In 2017, Mondo released the first Silent Hill soundtrack on vinyl, which is currently sold-out on Mondo's website.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the first Silent Hill game, and part of the series' legacy is its music. Composer Akira Yamaoka created the music for almost every Silent Hill game except for Silent Hill: Downpour. While there are debates as to which Silent Hill game had the best soundtrack, the music for Silent Hill 2 is arguably one of the best-known in the series.

There's no word yet on a release date, but Mondo typically announces the release of a new soundtrack a couple days before pre-orders go live. So, keep an eye out on Mondo's social media pages.
