If Id Software hired a Metal band (of any kind) to do the Doom soundtrack, who do you think it'd be?

Recommended Posts

Chances are with their close relationship with Trent Reznor, and him having done the Quake soundtrack and almost the Doom 3 soundtrack, him.

 

Unfortunately also Pantera, which I've never really been a fan of, has been in it. Like Doomkid said AIC. The only one still alive though is Reznor.

The thing about that is that this close relationship happened after Doom.

Atheist, of course. because they're universally good.

After giving this some thought, I doubt they would go with it, but I would have liked to see early Meshuggah perhaps? :P

Symphony X for the hell-themed episode.

Not sure about the old Dooms, perhaps it would've indeed sucked if the entire soundtrack was enclosed in just a "metal band" paradigm. The variety really helped it. The newer Dooms could really benefit from Alex Rise (Tyrant of death) though. He nailed the style before Doom 2016 was even released, not any weaker than Mick Gordon in all aspects.

Five-finger death punch...  fuck no

 

I, either see Ministry or NIN because of the Industrial metal vibe they go for the games.

actually, i thought about it somewhat longer, and i'm pretty sure that i want a high-quality soundtrack from Justin Bieber. with vocals. i can't think out a better music that makes me want to KILL.

I could see Sunn O))) vibing really well with the aesthetic of the newer games.

I would really have loved Chu Ishikawa/Der Eisenrost to have done the soundtrack.  Angry NIN with lots of noise would've been terrifying back then.

A doom soundtrack by KMFDM would be fucking awesome

On a semi-related note, I was listening to "Take 'Em Out" and I was shocked by how much it reminded me of Frank Klepacki's work on Command & Conquer. Then again, I guess it is Frank Klepacki's work that reminds me of KMFDM's.
