Alternative Background Music for DoomRL
« on: June 06, 2013, 02:31 »

Since I am very much into music and curious as to what bands and styles other players like, here's a mental excersize for you: let's say Doom(RL) came without a musical soundtrack, just the option to insert whatever you'd want to listen to. What bands/songs/styles/etc would you add?

Here's a couple of my thoughts:
Tool - Pushit
Rammstein - Du Riechst So Gut
Millionaire - I'm on a High
Air - Clouds Up
At The Drive-In - Arcarsenal
Dillinger Escape Plan - Calculating Infinity

Tool & Air mainly for the atmoshpere of the songs; Rammstein, Millionaire and ATDI for the cojones plus the fact that they have something unique to their sound, and DEP because it's really really twisted (this is one of their 'lite' songs), much like the mindset DoomRL requires.

How bout'chu?

Well, I had turned off the ingame music(as usual) the other day, and was playing some Children of Bodom (on low volume to avoid interfering with critical ingame sounds) in the background. It seemed to fit rather well.

Well, there are certainly some songs that thematically fit really well.

Phobos Base Entry: Sabaton - Primo Victoria (starting with the words "Through the gates of Hell ...")
Hell Arena: Arakain - Gladiator
UnChained Court: Hammerfall - Unchained
The Wall: Guess what ;)
Tower of Babel: Rage - Sent By The Devil
Unholy Cathedral: Slayer - Angel of Death
Lava Pits/Mt.Erebus: Metallica - Fight Fire With Fire
Phobos Anomaly: Gamma Ray - Somewhere out in Space (somehow it fits there :) )
Mortuary/Limbo: Rage - Straight to Hell

I could definitely think of more :).

This seems like a pretty legit playlist o.O

How about Dio - Holy Diver on repeat for all 666 floors of AAo666?

Could work. I can see Stratovarius - Infinity as more fitting though. At least for the first level, so you know what you're getting into :).

Another thought for speedruns: Sabaton - Speeder.

I'll have to check this one out, since I was going to suggest Peter Pan Speedrock's 'We Want Blood' for just that purpose.

Haven't picked mp3 music since graphic version, so no alternate levels.
Rather obvious choices:
Hell Arena
Chained Court (because gasoline!)
Spider's Lair
City of Skulls
Not-so-obvious ones:
Phobos Base Entry
Hell Armory
Lava Pits
And for normal levels there were random instrumental pieces by Malmsteen, John 5 and others. And some Dethklok too.

Also, remembered one more. First level of Deimos (IIRC that was level 16 back then), to set "things just got real" mood.

I'd probably throw in a rip of the DOOM music anyway. :p

Other than that, I...I'm not really sure what I'd put in. It would definitely be something rock, even if it might be a bit older/tamer than some of what you've posted. No specific examples come to mind. Also, game music like the Battlefield 1942 theme.

No specific examples come to mind.

But they will, now that the seed's planted. If you come up with anything, please share. 'Tame' doesn't necessarily mean 'unfitting'. See my example of Air, above, or listen to things like Massive Attack, or for example this track from Jeff Wayne's 'War of the Worlds' (1978!) (check out the full story here [disc 1] and here [disc 2])

Also:

game music like the Battlefield 1942 theme.

This one?
