Did Morbid Angel Influence The Intermission Screen?

Recommended Posts

I mean, there is a certain amount of resemblance, plus they are a band right up Romero's alley.

Fun fact: Trey Azagthoth also made a few maps, though they're all panned by those who have played them.

I really don't think John Romero did any texture work on Doom. Mostly concept and level design. And the original intermission you posted isn't the same one used in Doom 2. They're similar, but it's just a bunch of tortured souls trapped in a tapestry. And it really doesn't look anywhere near the album cover. It's possible that it was an influence, but you'd have to check with who was at id at the time to make sure. Maybe post it to Romero's twitter.

Speaking of which, the Domination album cover has always reminded me of Doom.

Don't ask me why though

On a side tangent, I love reading about the musical inspiration for really early death metal albums. Since obviously, if death metal is still developing, it can't take inspiration from itself. So you get really weird shit.

Altars of Madness was inspired by grindcore and Pink Floyd. What a combo!

WHAT?!... Well, I guess that explains why I liked that album so much...
