Brotherhood of Ruin MAP04

In the midi data its like there are 2 titles: mordeth2 and melody. Also the doomwiki writes: "mordeth2 ?". I already checked the post about Brotherhood of Ruin in this thread, but still there's not a clear answer about this track.


"We Like the Juice Sir" by Kniggit.

That was his name: Knigget. He once did some tracks , must have recycled them to Brotherhood of Ruin later.

Here's the music from DWANGO6 map 3 (and Hellcore map 1) identified once and for all. No it was not composed by Mancer. It was composed by Edwin van Veldhoven and the title is "Danielle's Face". You can hear it on the preserved remains of his old Geocities site.

Dude, you legend!

Some of his MIDIs are pretty damn good. Not so fitting for Doom, but good tunes.

I think we should stick this thread, there's a lot of good info about amazing tracks not credited correctly.
And back on topic, does anybody know who made these 4 tracks?

I found them on random music packs on /idgames without too much information ("randomly found on the internet"), the MUS one comes from an Heretic map from H!Zone.

Anything from DMCHAMB1 and DMCHAMB2 please? Probably the best wad soundtracks ever imo. I only know that DMCHAMB1 E1M1 and E3M3 use Canon D, and E3M4 is something classical too.

Specifically The Entertainer. Apart from that I don't know anything else from DMCHAMB1, excluding Canon in D.

It seems apparent that these are short compositions that are only based on real songs, like Doom's soundtrack. E2M3 isn't actually "Jump" but it's very similar, so applying that to the rest...

E1M2 reminded me of "Every Breath You Take" by The Police
E3M7 I swear I recognise, but can't quite place it. Maybe look up Chopin.

DMCHAMB2 E1M3 - I am almost certain this is based on Roll Over Beethoven by ELO.

New Music               : Yes, I got them without permission from The Packard

On the metadata side, since they haven't been converted to MUS, D_E1M1 is clearly identified as Pachelbel's Cannon. D_E3M3 is also Pachelbel's Cannon, and also Copyright (C) 1992 Voyetra Technologies, but it's a different version anyway.

D_E3M4 is clearly identified as The Entertainer, and another Voyetra '92 vintage. D_E3M5 is Hello My Baby, D_E3M6 is Maple Leaf Rag, D_E3M7 is Chopin's Minute Waltz, all are Voyetra '92.

D_E3M8 is copyright Voyetra 1992, but no title. Maybe an untitled original piece.

D_E3M9 seems broken and has no metadata.

D_E1M5, D_E1M8, D_E2M4, D_E2M9 have no title, but some copyright info

They're not the passport.mid, though.

Other Passport MIDIs have something that might be a title and a duration:
D_E1M9: Earth Day :59
D_E2M1: Fusion 1:29
D_E2M2: Forest 1:38
D_E2M5: Milesion :59
D_E2M6: NBA JAZ :29
D_E2M8: Old Road :59
D_E3M1: Yosemite 1:59
D_E3M2: Sun Field :59

D_E1M4: Child :59
D_E1M5: Spaceoid :59
D_E1M6: Boss Nova :45
D_E1M7: Football :59
D_E1M8: MtnBikes 1:29

D_E3M4: The Alps :59
D_E3M5: Trains :59

Untitled Passport songs
D_E1M3, D_E3M2

No identifying metadata:
D_E1M2, D_E1M9, D_E2M1, D_E2M5, D_E2M9, D_E3M1, D_E3M6, D_E3M7, D_E3M8, D_E3M9

D_E2M4 might be titled "30a sec" if that can be considered a title.

For some reason, D_INTROA is Doom II's intermission, and D_INTER is Doom II's intro.

It's a bit hard, they all have been stripped of metadata. Are they conversions from MUS back into MIDI?
MUS_E1M1.mid is Jean Michel Jarre's "Industrial Revolution" song, transcribed to MIDI by Brian Havis, exact same as used in Castle of the Renegades for example.
D_RUNNIN is "Cold Tea", an original composition by Andrew Haveland-Robinson (coldtea1.mid).
Dunno about D_THE_DA and D_BETWEE, sorry.

Edit: DMCHAMB3 has converted everything to MUS format, therefore it is a wad that sucks. It's proven by science.
D_E1M2 is Grieg's In the Halls of the Mountain King
D_E1M3 is Mozart's Rondo Alla Turca (Piano Sonata 11, third movement)
D_E1M4 is Das Boot
D_E1M8 is chris3.mid.
D_INTER is Heretic E1M5
D_INTRO and D_INTROA are Heretic E1M9
D_VICTOR is Heretic E1M4
D_E2M4 is a MIDI version of Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust"
D_E2M7 is a wad file, lol. Inside is a D_E1M1 that is the Terminator theme song
D_E3M1 is a poor MIDI version of "Rape Me" by Nirvana
D_E3M3 is a Star Wars Empire Strike Back ending theme
D_E3M4 is Heretic tally screen theme (MUS_INTER)
D_E3M5 is Heretic text screen theme (MUS_CPTD)
D_E3M6 is Heretic E1M3
D_E3M7 is Heretic E1M7
D_E3M8 is Heretic E1M9
D_E3M9 is a Passport composition that was miraculously spared MUS conversion, it's Raptrack, same as E1M1 in chamber 2.

They're all MIDI, but none of them have useful information.

Thx a lot Gez and friends!

Now how about this one? I'm not sure where I got it, judging by the filename probably from the DBZone wads.

What's the title screen music from rrward02?

It's one of the many, many MIDI adaptations of the Monty Python Holy Grail theme.

Sorry for megawad.wad, I don't recognize any of those you've asked for.

There's some commonality with the Heroes.wad soundtrack though:

Daniel wrote the soundtrack by himself. D_READ is my favorite, amazing mood.
