Hello everyone and welcome to what is now the 14th installment of 31 Days. Since we are almost midway through I feel this song is very apt.
Bloodborne – Hail the Nightmare
From what I’ve been able to dig up there seems to be mentioned of cursed beast and redemption in blood, but beyond that I can’t find anything solid. I really do wish these songs came with the lyrics as I’m always interested in what they’re saying. Then again it could be nothing hence why there are never any lyrics. The song doesn’t have much too it, it’s actually quite a simple tune with nothing too complex as far as instruments are concerned. The real work is done by the vocals which really set the tone. This however brings me back to the beginning where I wish I could understand what is being said.
Regardless the song has yet to disappoint me. The atmosphere of Hypogean goal is perfect and the mystery surrounding the area equally so. There are tons of statues all huddled up in corners and against the wall as if hiding or trying to escape. To get there early you have to let a kidnapper murder you and then you’ll end up in a cell, which you can escape. In its early state Hypogean is filled with kidnappers and hags. There is also a giant pig, and some dogs, and that’s about it. It appears that this is where the kidnappers take their victims to perform who knows what kind of rituals.
By the time we get there the second time the place is vastly different. All the kidnappers are dead and replaced by enemies know as cramped caskets.
These enemies seem to be located by or near the corpses of kidnappers. It is my belief that possibly as a result of all the death brought about by the kidnappers, and the result of the creation of the One Reborn, created the cramped caskets which in turn killed the kidnappers. Perhaps this is why Hypogean is so empty, the inhabitance of the area have been killed or sacrificed for the creation of the one reborn.
Mind you this all just speculation on my part, but that’s just part of the fun of these games.
