Favorite Doom Music

Recommended Posts

What's your favorite version of Doom's music? For me, it was without doubt the Playstation soundtrack. Much better and more inspired than the PC version, I always thought.

I'd say DOOM 1's music. I'd take creepy ambient music/MIDI versions of metal songs over sloppily written tracks that are re-used every five levels any day of the week. (Not saying all of DOOM 2's music is like this, but the majority of it is)

Ultimate Doom's music, especially the SNES version. I grew up with it and always found it quite eerie and more atmospheric. Must be the reverb and horrible quality...

Original PC:
E1M1-M9
E2M1
E3M3
E3M8
D_IN_CIT
D_RUNNIN
D_BETWEE/D_DOOM2/D_SHAWN3 (TNT)
D_DDTBLU/D_OPENIN/D_ROMER2 (TNT)
D_DM2INT/D_EVIL (TNT)
D_RUNNIN/D_IN_CIT (TNT)
D_THE_DA (TNT)

PS port music doesn't fit with the original Doom's gameplay. If the static were removed, it'd fit better with Doom 3.

I like E1M8, E1M9, The Doom Intermission music, and the Doom 2 cutscene music, the Doom cutscene music, and the TNT intermission music.

As a whole, my favorite is Doom 1 soundtrack. I love spooky tracks like E1M5, E1M8, E2M2, E2M4, E2M6, E2M8 (this one gave me nightmares back in the day). Out of faster rock tracks my favorite is E1M9. Anyway I love both Doom 1 and Doom 2 sountracks.

As for psx/n64 soundtrack, I find it not very fitting to the classic Doom. It would fit Doom 3 though. If you like this dark ambient music, check Stalker soundtrack - it is very similar and kinda more scary.

my taste revolves around anything dark and scary... slow piano and scary melodies. I dont know the specific maps containing these but I do know ive heard some..

The track from All Hell is Breaking Loose's MAP02 stuck out and continues to stick out in my mind as a favorite.

I would have to say Ultimate Doom - E1 hands down. The music was excellently made and is very memorable.

The midis that you listen to when there is text on the screen is (un)godly to say the least, in both Ultimate DooM and DooM 2. The one made for Ultimate DooM is especially awesome, has an eery and brooding otherworldly atmosphere that sparks off my imagination every time I hear it. Robert Prince outwrote all of the sterile and boring NiN and Blowpeth albums by a very long shot with some of his pieces.
