Doom Eternal Controversy
Doom Eternal Ost Open Letter
We often get asked about the music in DOOM Eternal, and more specifically about the process that went into its creation. In this blog post, we’re going to pull back the curtain and give you a behind-the-scenes look at how DOOM Eternal’s original soundtrack was made. When we set out to make DOOM Eternal. We knew that the music needed to be just as intense and over-the-top as the game itself.
We also wanted to make sure that it paid homage to classic DOOM while still feeling fresh and new. To achieve this, we brought on composer Mick Gordon. Who is no stranger to creating metal soundtracks, having previously worked on Wolfenstein: The New Order and Need for Speed: Payback. Mick got right to work, writing an absolutely epic main theme for DOOM Eternal.

He recorded with a full metal band at Abbey Road Studios (yes, THAT Abbey Road) in London, and even brought in id Software’s very own audio director Robert Prince to lend his voice to one of the tracks. The result is a truly unique and amazing-sounding soundtrack that perfectly compliments the fast-paced action of DOOM Eternal.
Doom Eternal Soundtrack
The Doom Eternal Soundtrack is composed by Mick Gordon and released on March 20, 2020. It consists of 27 tracks and has a total length of 1 hour and 18 minutes. The soundtrack was released as a digital download and on CD.
It is also available on streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music. The music for Doom Eternal builds upon the style established in the 2016 reboot of Doom, with a heavier focus on metal. The tracks are more aggressive and fast-paced, with occasional moments of respite.
As with the previous game, the soundtrack features both original compositions and remixes of classic Doom tracks. One of the most notable changes in the Doom Eternal Soundtrack compared to its predecessor is the increased use of vocals. Whereas the 2016 Doom featured only two tracks with vocals (“At DOOM’s Gate” and “BFG Division”). Every track in Doom Eternal features some form of vocal performance, whether it be growls, screams, or clean singing.
This change was made at the request of id Software co-founder John Carmack. Who felt that metal music had become too reliant on instrumentation over vocal performance in recent years. While some fans have criticized this change, overall reception to the Doom Eternal Soundtrack has been positive. Many have praised Mick Gordon’s ability to capture the feel of classic metal while still keeping things fresh with his own unique style.
Others have commented on how well the soundtrack fits with the gameplay, providing an intense listening experience that perfectly compliments all the demon-slaying action taking place on the screen.
In the early days of World War II, the British Army faced a dilemma. They were up against a well-trained and equipped German force, but their own troops were not yet ready for combat. In order to buy time to train and equip their soldiers. The British government turned to a group of civilians who volunteered to go into battle in place of soldiers.
This group was known as the Bfg Division. The BFG Division was made up of men between the ages of 18 and 50 who had experience in fields such as engineering, mining, or farming. While they lacked military training, they were eager to do whatever it took to defeat the Germans.
The division was split into two groups: the Home Guard, which defended Britain from invasion, and the Pioneer Corps, which worked behind enemy lines to disrupt German supply lines and communications. Despite their lack of formal training, the Bfg Division proved to be a valuable asset to the British war effort. Their work helped buy time for the army to get ready for combat, and their brave actions saved many lives.
