DOOM Soundtrack Formats

Horns up you Old School Metal Heads and Industrial Metal Lovers! Laced Records, in conjunction with Bethesda Softworks® and id Software® have announced that the DOOM Soundtrack (i.e. the Original Game Soundtrack) will make its long-awaited debut on physical audio formats (Vinyl/CD) this Summer.

The soundtrack was laid down at the famous Abbey Road Studios (for all you Beatles fans), the “album” will be available in four formats, including a Deluxe Double CD, Double Vinyl with 20 favorite tracks selected by the developers, a Special Edition Four-Disc Vinyl and a Special Limited Edition Vinyl Box Set – pressed on red 180g wax, this Hellish 4 LP collection includes the Deluxe Double CD and a limited-edition customised DOOM turntable slipmat. The Special Limited Edition Vinyl Box Set will only be available via pre-order for a limited time window ending on May 2, 2018 and only when directly ordered from Laced Records.

The DOOM Soundtrack was originally a Game Awards 2016 Winner for Best Music / Sound Design and BAFTA Games Nominee for Best Music and Audio Achievement. Composed by long-time Bethesda collaborator Mick Gordon, his dark and intense vision on this release has been best described as

Industrial Metal to mirror DOOM’s trademark brutal power fantasy gameplay across 31 synth and Metal-filled tracks, spanning over two hours of runtime.To mimic the power of Hell and its corruptive Argent energy, Mick created the “DOOM Instrument”. Consisting of pure sine wave inputs directed into four separate sound processing chains and a variety of post-processing techniques, it allowed Gordon to dynamically ‘corrupt’ generated sounds. Further callbacks to the franchise’s legacy and imagery are found as the soundtrack’s signature screeching guitar lines are layered with the chainsaw audio from the original 1993 title.

Interested “DOOMsters” can pre-order all editions of the soundtrack via the Laced Records store: North America: www.lacedrecords.com and other parts of the world: www.lacedrecords.co.
