Are there any Doom inspired songs?

Recommended Posts

I've been looking for some but could only find a few old heavy metal songs which lyrics I could hardly understand. sorry if I'm no metal head, I just love doom.

"Blood on the Walls" is a song written by Manny Charlton (of Testament fame), and the song's real name is "Doom".

Said song was included in "Drool", his first solo album released in 1999, and you can also find the song as well as the full album on iTunes in a much better quality. There's also a band named "Hexen" which released a song called "Knee-Deep in the Dead", a song that Abracadabra posted earlier.

Edit: I almost forgot what could be maybe the earliest example. Rammstein's "Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen?". Not precisely Doom-inspired, but it includes Doomguy's death scream and the pickup sound.

I just want to make sure the OP is aware that the origin of many classic Doom songs are questionably stolen / inspired by existing metal music. You can check youtube for comparisons.

That's not what he's asking about at all. I'm pretty sure everyone knows this about Doom's music by now.

WOOOW. Serves me right. Manny Charlton of Nazareth fame.

I'll be in the corner.

If that counts, then "Where Boys Fear to Tread" by The Smashing Pumpkins counts as well. Listen at 1:20 (and a few other times afterwards).

Spoiler

I won't claim the lyrics were especially inspired by Doom, though. They're about as abstract as Doom's level design maybe. :p
