Record label Mondo has reprinted Silent Hill series vinyl soundtracks composed by Akira Yamaoka. The Silent Hill vinyl soundtrack ships from Mondo in Austin and distributor Fangamer in Tucon.

Mondo first pressed the Silent Hill soundtrack in 2017, featuring music from the PlayStation survival horror game composed by Akira Yamaoka. The red-color vinyl reprint comes decorated with cover art by Sam Wolfe Connelly.

In the introduction to the game, protagonist Harry Mason drives his adopted daughter Cheryl to the town of Silent Hill while on vacation. Harry's surroundings are concealed by a veil of fog, when suddenly he is startled when his headlights reveal a child standing in the middle of the road. He swerves, barely avoiding a collision and causing his car to crash. Upon awaking, he discovers that Cheryl has gone missing. He departs to search the fog-covered town.

The influential third-person survival horror game was developed by Team Silent at Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo in 1999. Artist Takayoshi Sato served as character designer, creating computer-generated models that helped define the visual identity of the haunting cinematic cutscenes.

Director Keiichiro Toyama previously worked with Hideo Kojima as a graphic designer on the Sega CD port of Snatcher, and would later go on to direct the Siren trilogy of horror games.
