After our inaugural release, Dragon Fantasy Book II OST by Dale North, he’s back with more, this time with his much-requested soundtrack to the 2005 X-Strike Studios film, Silent Horror. As the name would suggest, the film pays tribute to popular survival horror videogames, and while North was known primarily for his pop ballads and vocal arrangements of videogame classics at the time, the Silent Horror Original Soundtrack captures the essence of horror with its dark atmospheres and unsettling soundscapes. North’s knack for melody also shines throughout the score’s emotional character themes.
The soundtrack and a remix by long-time friend and producer Mustin are now available on iTunes and Amazon MP3, as well as on Loudr and Bandcamp for just $7 USD.

As mentioned, this arrangement album is one not to be missed. Containing alternate versions of many of the tracks from the Original Soundtrack, there are also all-new arrangements created by Goomin Nam including a moving Korean vocal version of “Forgotten Archduchess,” pop ballad covers by Goomin Nam of “Peaceful Macdallena” and by Dale North of “Seaside Village,” a dark take on “Wandering Woods” by Joshua Morse, and a beautiful piano and saxophone improvisation by Norihiko Hibino and AYAKI (GENTLE LOVE).
The album features 15 tracks, including variations, arrangements, and a bonus trailer from the game’s announcement.
A limited-print physical version is available on Bandcamp, while the two albums are being bundled together at a discounted price exclusively on Loudr. You can also pick it up on iTunes and Amazon MP3.

The first release out from Scarlet Moon Records is Dale North’s Dragon Fantasy Book II Original Soundtrack. This 43-track album marks the triumphant return of the classic JRPG soundtrack that many enthusiasts, myself included, have been yearning for. North, a singer and songwriter first and foremost, draws on this background to craft catchy melodies around every turn.
I had a blast coming up with the track names with Muteki’s Adam Rippon. We hope you enjoy them!
A limited physical edition, available via Bandcamp and Amazon, features 37 tracks and is adorned with artwork from the game. The Bandcamp version includes an immediate download of the full 43-track version.
Also available via iTunes, Amazon MP3, and Loudr.
