The Curse is less of a song and more of a repetitive infernal beating. In the background whale song can be heard, much like Fear of the Heavens. The song plays when Thanatos fails to steal Dyluck's soul, and changes into his true form.

This song is track 36 on the official soundtrack.


The American and Japanese soundtrack titles have a noticeably different meaning.
