Silent Hill 3 vinyl pressings soundtrack

On August 18, 2021, Mondo will release vinyl pressings of the soundtracks for Silent Hill 3 and Silent Hill 4. You will be able to purchase them from the Mondo Shop from 12PM CST. The records will feature art by Ashley Swidowski, a lead character concept artist at Naughty Dog, and Nephelomancer. The vinyl pressing for The Medium‘s soundtrack, which Yamaoka worked on as well, will also be available.

Akira Yamaoka composed the scores for both Silent Hill 3 and Silent Hill 4, as well as other works in the series. The music for Silent Hill 3 mixes horror ambience with guitar rock and trip-hop, which you can also hear in the soundtrack for Silent Hill 4. The games feature very different stories and atmospheres, however. Silent Hill 3 is a direct continuation of the cult storyline from the first game, whereas Silent Hill 4: The Room is not even in Silent Hill. The player travels between supernatural worlds and the eponymous, and claustrophobic, room.

Mondo also had the first two games’ soundtracks on vinyl available on their website. However, they are all currently sold out. Though Konami has not made any comments about further games in the series, they are still releasing new merchandise. For example, a limited edition hoodie went on pre-order in the Official Konami Shop on August 5, 2021.

The Mondo vinyl pressings for Silent Hill 3 and Silent Hill 4 will go on sale from the Mondo Shop on August 18, 2021.
