The artwork featured on the European Silent Hill 1 PS1 Soundtrack CD.
Videogame soundtracks are a beautiful thing, yet many people do not even know they exist. They DO exist and I plan to highlight them here, plus give you a link so you can download each soundtrack yourself and listen to the whole thing with one click.
The files will be zipped, so you’ll need a zipping program to unzip and listen to them (each was personally zipped by me, so you can trust that they will work perfectly and are free of anything that would harm your computer). Hopefully you will be able to discover some new music that you never would have listened to before, or catch up on music from a favorite or classic game that you never got around to downloading.

The sad reality is that most people do not purchase videogame soundtracks, they simply download them online. Although I will be contributing to this, many of them are not officially available or are hard to come by through official sources or typical music stores. Although that has become easier in recent years. You can even buy videogame soundtracks via the PlayStation Network. When possible I will link to where you can officially purchase the soundtrack. One of the best ways you can do so however is by simply purchasing the game.
Either way, popularizing videogame soundtrack listening by spreading the love is a noble endeavor, and will only seek to make people more aware of the videogame music genre as a whole. So sit back, download and enjoy. :)

Akira Yamaoka is the long-time composer of the Silent Hill series and responsible for part of the main aspect of Silent Hill’s success and the reason that the game became so popular and beloved… the insanely creepy sound, music and effects which played psychological tricks on the players mind to enhance fear. He (Yamaoka) also worked on other Konami games including Snatcher (1994), Contra: Shattered Soldier (2002), Rumble Roses (2004), No More Heroes 2 (2010), Lollipop Chainsaw (2012), Rumble Roses XX (2006), Sine Mora (2012), and Shadows of the Damned (2011).
…. Silent Hill musician Akira Yamaoka welding a guitar at a symphony. He composed the unnerving music of the Silent Hill games.
Akira Yamaoka has also worked on every succeeding Silent Hill game including Silent Hill 1 (1999), Silent Hill 2 (2001), Silent Hill 3 (2003), Silent Hill 4: The Room (2004), Silent Hill: Origins (2007), Silent Hill: Homecoming (2008), Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (2009), Silent Hill: Book of Memories (2012) and Silent Hill: Revelation 3D (2012), the upcoming 2nd film. Providing vocals on the Silent Hill soundtrack is Vanesa Quiroz and helping to compose on all the tracks was Rika Muranaka. Rika has also sung on many other Konami games, some of her other work includes the Metal Gear Solid series (1, 2 and 3), Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Silent Hill.
