The introductory track to the trilogy, this track pays tribute thematically and musically to one of the most beloved characters in the NES library and belonging to one of the greatest gaming franchises in history.


Brother and I descend into the cave, I feel a calm
Now we depend upon the light to lead us on
Flicker of light surprises me, torches dim: It's time to feed
Legends are true, they all are true. How could it be?

Will we ever see the light again?
Will we ever see the sun?
Eyes of malice glowing in the den
Like a moth to flame: Am I done?

I, I am trapped, trapped in a den,
A den of vampires.
I hear the bones of my brother being eaten
Is there no way out? Oh lord let me out....

Now I run from the beast
Unholy monsters at me
How did the candles lead me here?

Cathedral notes alarming
Chants and tomes may charm me
And quell this strangulating fear

I find a group unlike before
An imposing damphyr, I'm sure,
A witch and pirate halt and wait

For a holy warrior
To come crashing through the castle door
And seal the evil king's fate

Will we ever see the light again
and wait to see the brand new day?
Are we sure this man will come to save us
or will the castle of stone be my grave?!

I, for I am trapped, trapped in a den,
A den of vampires
Horrible cursed night
Bind this monstrous blight
Blind with holy force bright
Crack the whip!

Belmont, save us all!
Light the dark, heed the call!

Hear the call...
