Alucard's entrance into Dracula's castle will always be my all time favorite as, in my opinion, Symphony of the Night is a gem from Castlevania's legacy. Although, I am waiting forth to see how the music will be introduced in Bloodstained, where you will be at this time, what you will do or deal with...

Invitation of a Crazed Moon is the best. It's a very different tone than the rest of the games in the series, which fits PoR's tone being much lighter than most of the other games save for DoS. It's adventurous and bold, but it still hints and danger and mystery. Also the cover of it in Harmony of Despair is amazing, with its rad grunge guitar at the start.

It's really a bit of a tie for me, but I think PoR slightly beats out the others by sounding the most like the earliest games in the series. Not as in the usual remixes you get in each game, but rather I feel the music fits the themes for 1-3 so closely that I wouldn't have been shocked if you said the PoR soundtrack was new music being added to them for whatever reason.
I gotta admit it's a tough choice for me between symphony of the night and aria of sorrow,though my favorite music will always be Bloody Tears,especially some of the remix versions,in fact I love a lot of the remix castlevania music
They are all good, but I like Harmony of Dissonance's castle entrance theme the most. This one just hits the right chords on me. Starts with an intro, then the tempo speeds up and plays a wonderful melody that, as how I can describe it, inspires a comfortable and secure sense of hope in front of a seemingly insurmountable feeling of oncoming dread, in the most effective way compared to the rest.
In another way for HoD, the quality of the music matches the quality of the graphics. The "8-bit" music layered on top of its rather SNES-like color pallette just makes sense to me.
OoE's An Empty Tome is a very close second if not simply tied for first. Hmm... I must have been the only one who thought Prologue was actually OoE's castle entrance theme.... seems consistent with all the others to me, but I digress

First castlevania game I played I think was circle of the moon. My first ds game was portrait of ruin and it's my favorite igavania first level theme. My favorite castlevania 3d theme is Abandoned Castle from curse of darkness, looking foward to the music of bloodstained.
Everyone seems to like SOTN's opening the best here and yeah the music is cool & atmospheric. I like POR's because its got a funky vibe to it. But for me my Fave has easily gotta be AOS's castle opening; it can ear-worm its way into my head for days (but thats probably because i played the hell out of that game, then i played it again) and its both atmospheric and fast paced. When it comes to ROTN's (possible) castle opening its a very high-octane track and could work well if the action is frantic from the start.
EDIT: If its Luxurious Overture we're talking about yeah that could work very well, its certainly more laid back than the track in the original post but thats not necessarily a bad thing, it's important that the music is tied to the pace of the gameplay so that things are in sync with one another
