The amazing "identify that Doom song" thread.

Recommended Posts

The titles on VGMusic seem to be partly based on the SNES port, which inexplicably mixes up several of the song titles in the sound test. Lightning War is the actual stage 2 theme, though.

As for de-ep1.wad, D_DM2INT is the player select theme from the SNES version of The Ninja Warriors. I don't recognize the others offhand, though.

CONF40

SLADE says:

Music (MIDI)
MIDI format 1 with 12 tracks and time division 192
Text: Freedom Memorial / Girdeux

  • For CONF42, amusingly, it's the same as one I am looking for: D_BOSS from DE-PKG.ZIP>DE_SND.WAD. So at least I have a pristine MIDI version that hasn't been MUSified. Unfortunately, the metadata isn't useful.
  • CONF45 sounds like Vangelis' theme for Blade Runner.
  • CONF46 sounds really familiar. It's a MIDI version of a famous song, I'm sure of it.
  • CONF51 has useful metadata:
Music (MIDI)

Title: Cavern

  • CONF58 has semi-useful metadata:
Music (MIDI)
MIDI format 1 with 7 tracks and time division 120
Title: untitled
Copyright: Copyright © 1999 by Erik Menjivar
Text: Erik Menjivar

That's an author name at least!

 

For Congestion 1024, I didn't identify any, but many of them have similar metadata that shows it was automatically inserted by the MIDI software without the author configuring stuff properly:

Music (MIDI)
MIDI format 0 with time division 960
Title: untitled
Copyright: Copyright © 2001 by <name>
Text: Ray

That "copyright by <name>" line is found in 11, 16, 17, 22, 23, 24, and 31. "Ray" is only present in two or three of them. But I'm inclined to think they're probably all by the same person, and I suppose "Ray" is their name.

 

Doom 2 Redux MAP04 seems to be "6:00" from Dream Theater, judging from the initials in the metadata:

Title: 6:00
...
Title: JP Lead Guitar
Title: JP Backup/KM Fills
Title: JM Bass
Title: KM Keyboards
Title: MP Drums

John Petrucci on guitar, John Myung on bass, Kevin Moore on keyboards, and Mike Portnoy on drums. And there's a song titled "6:00" on the album Awake. It fits.

 

MAP13 might be titled "Vow".

MAP14 metadata:

Music (MIDI)
MIDI format 1 with 7 tracks and time division 120
Title: Dead Souls
Title: Joy Division

MAP19 metadata:

Music (MIDI)

DMP 2012 MAP21 seems to have been made by moontrip77 <at> hotmail... While MAP27 was sequenced by PJBarnes.com.

DMP2013 ZD MAP10 is signed by Juan J. Alva-Guerra.

DMP2014 MAP18 metadata:

Title: untitled

By @NiGHTMARE apparently.

 

DMP 2017 MAP47 apparently has the title "The Separated Symbiote".

 

Entropy's intermission is not by Ribbiks at all, cue metadata:

Music (MIDI)

Marker: Secret of Evermore:  The Quicksand Fields    -The Jade Emperor-
Title: Composed by
Title: Jeremy Soule
Title: Sequenced by

And Entropy's MAP02 is "party-is-dead", same as 3IAC MAP29.

 

Freedoom 1 ending metadata:

E1M2 is apparently titled "Slayer", E1M4 is titled "5. Flood the City", E1M8 is titled "6. On The Next Day", E1M9 is "1. The Raging Sun", E2M2 is "5. Animal Skin", E2M3 is "4. Alone With Colors", MAP14 is "12. About The Summer", MAP27 is "11. Dreamcatcher", and MAP32 is "3. Black Mountain". I suppose all the titles with a number are by the same author. There's two number 5s, though.

MAP22 metadata:

Title: Midi's for freedoom

Title: "picklehammer"

Nova II intermission is entitled "Angels". Text screen is titled "07 - Communication Lost". Probably from something, given the track number.

 

Slaughterfest 2012: MAP12 is by our friend moontrip from hotmail again. MAP27 is titled "Black Forest". MAP34 is "Fight to the End" by Knightrider of Doom.

 

Stardate 20X6 intermission: "Sequenced by: Blue_Nocturne" and a yahoo address.

@Gez Thanks a lot for the extensive post! I think I'll have to find a way to look into the MIDIs' metadata myself, for some reason Slade has refused to show any of that, or even play anything through Fluidsynth for a while now no matter what version of it I download.
I updated my post with everything you found, and I was able to identify some of the MIDIs from the names of the people who arranged them, but two of those I just couldn't find at all - DMP2012 MAP27 and DMP2013 MAP10... the former of which really infuriates me, because I know I've heard this song somewhere, but I just can't figure out where.

And I Tried going through the list you posted a couple days ago. I couldn't find much, but D_THRONE is from Equinox MAP10.

It's broken on 3.2.0, so I stay with 3.1.12 for now.

 

A couple more, from jmickle:

CONF21 is drpoles.mid (full title: "dr. poles")

Freedoom E1M5 and E2M6 are sit.mid (full title: "sit on a bench 'n release that tensh'n")

Metadata says the title is "Power Trio", and the copyright is "Copyright © 2005 My Music Company".

 

If it were ten years older I'd say it was part of a soundcard driver's MIDI test package, but by 2005 this kind of things had become rare IIRC. Of course, the name "My Music Company" is so generic as to be utterly useless, and "Power Trio" isn't exactly unique either.

The "Copyright © xxxx My Music Company" string is pretty common so it's near surely a default for new files in some MIDI sequencer software. :(

D_CAVERN is frustrating, not the first time that track has come up and I don't think it's been identified yet, unfortunately I can't even think right now where else I've heard it.

I found it: it's BLOOD4.MID from the Blood shareware CD.

 

Likewise, what I called a "muffled edit" of UNHOLY.MID is actually that song from that same shareware CD.

I've been trying to decode e2music.wad and have gotten almost 50% of it figured out, but can't figure out the other half. A lot of these tracks are featured on Heroes 2, Mr. Smiley Head's Safari, and I'm sure numerous other wads from 1994 - 1996 which have been lost to time. Posting it here in the hopes that any of the others will be figured out.

 

E1M1:

E1M2:

E1M3: U96 - Das Boot (dasboot.mid)

E1M4:

E1M5: Christopher Wilkins - chris3.mid

E1M6:

E1M7: "Robot Garbage Freighter" from Space Quest III

E1M8: Jean-Michel Jarre - Second Rendez-Vous (rendezii.mid)

E1M9:

 

E1M1 = new-age-demo-2.mid / kabbalah.mid (2 different filenames for the same composition)

E1M2 = DEMO0003.mid (Sorcery by Chas Smith)

E1M4 = SENTIN.MID

E1M6 = ??? (I heard it somewhere before, and I also really like it) - someone will have to help me out here

E1M9 = mother.mid (by James Andrews)

Does anyone recognise this midi from Czechbox MAP04?
Apparently the author included it when he submitted the map for the project, but then disappeared before anyone asked him where the music is from.

BtSX E3 (or, rather, a jokewad called BtSX E3 distributed for April Fools two or three years back) had rather amazing text screen music (even though it doesn't fit Doom) which made me wonder if it's Heart and Soul or smth else, but I'd love to know the source.

Here's a midi i've been wondering where it comes from, i downloaded it from a site somewhere around 2003-2004 on a site listing midis from famous movies and tv shows, which made me assume it was from the 'Alien' movies (which is not the case).

Recently i found out it was used on SlayeR as the intermission midi, apparently which places the midi a few years earlier than when i downloaded it, so it got me curious about the origin of the midi. It sounds like it could had come from an amiga game but i really don't have any idea, if anyone knows where it comes from please let me know

Alien Breed, maybe?

 

Not a perfect match, but there's some similarities.

I did considered 'Alien Breed' but despite some small similarities, i don't think it's a match. Just to clarify a bit, the "sounds like music from an amiga game" part is more of a hunch on my part since i don't know much about the midi other than it was listed as 'Alien' on a midi site, and was used on SlayeR some years before i found it on that site

I have a feeling the MAP13 midi is an old Freedoom MIDI. I have no clue who composed it though. I definitely recognize MAP27 as Corneria from Star Fox, though.

Thank you @Giant Jumbo Jellyfish and @Diabolución, I really appreciate that you could still dig up some stuff for me, and I'm especially glad that DMP2012 MAP27 midi finally got identified, that one was really bothering me, because I knew I've heard it somewhere, I just had absolutely no idea where.
