  1. The Requiem Reimagined project is now complete and available for download. Direct Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/18JfcPu5E3gZkPQzFXsn6jpPMT1PEWSV9/view?usp=sharing Original post is here. The custom soundtrack was composed by Mark Klem, David “Tolwyn” Shaw, and Jeremy Doyle. Now, just over 20 years later, the same musicians want to bring you a fresh take on that soundtrack and we hope you enjoy it. Requiem was an add-on (“megawad”) released in 1997 for the immensly popular first person shooter game Doom2 by id Software. It contained 32 new levels, uploaded to the idgames archive on July 4, 1997. Several of its designers previously worked on Memento Mori and Memento Mori II. It is famous for popularizing architectural tricks that are used even today, including the faked 3D bridges originally introduced by Dystopia 3. It is also one of the few PWADs that are allowed to be used in Compet-n speed-runs.

    Requiem Reimagined (Soundtrack) Released

    The soundtrack is released as-is in mp3 format. We all know and understand that there are other formats (ogg, etc.) that are used by certain source-ports. This soundtrack is meant to stand "on its own." That being said, we are COMPLETELY 100% fine with the community transcoding this into whatever format that is needed and packaging it up in a Wad, Pak, or PK3 (zip) format that can be used by any number of the awesome source-ports out there. The ONLY thing we ask is that you credit us in a text file and point to the site (http://www.tolwyn.com/requiem-reimagined/) which is one of our "perma-links."

    Requiem Reimagined (Soundtrack) Released

    You win! Good lord. I've updated the download. The best laid plans always end in me screwing up the zip file. Just delete the OLDER version. Keep the one that we just mixed down 1 hour ago. (May 10.).
  9. Just when you thought the young kids were taking over... Tolwyn, Klem, and Jeremy Doyle are just a few weeks away from releasing... Requiem Re-imagined (The Soundtrack). The soundtrack to 1997's Doom2 Megawad Requiem has been re-written, professionally recorded, and re-imagined. Just over twenty years later (think about that just for a few moments), the original musicians have reunited to re-record each song in a new album due out Spring 2018... As a teaser, here is Map 1. Rhythm of Carnage written by Tolwyn. Jeremy Doyle is featured on guitars. If you are interested in reviewing the album once it is released, please don't hesitate to contact me (tolwyn at tolwyn dot com).

  10. Yes, but he's a wonderful person from the UK that doesn't understand that TUESDAY IS THE RELEASE DAY IN THE US!!! But seriously, we really need to sign off on the nitty-gritty (spelling errors, id3 tag errors, etc.). You are off the hook.
  11. It's done. :) We're just finalizing and signing off on all the normal tidbits. Over 2 hours and 10 minutes. Woah.
  12. Big thank you to @Jimmy and @Alfonzo Also, @Vorpal we stole him for this project. Also @Alfonzo . I just got it. Brilliant.
  13. My reply was a joke in and of itself.

    Who composed which midis in Icarus?

    Hey, not my fault! And this reply is only about 2 years out. Hint: my website is tolwyn.com. My name is tolwyn... put the @ together and you probably have it figured out. :)
  15. I don't even know what to say about this thread. :) Good lord.
  16. All of Jeremy's songs are complete. We have 3 in-process songs, perhaps 2 after today. The review copy has gone out.

    Jim Flynn

    I'm saddened to hear this news. I was privledged to work with Jim with TeamTNT and I echo the sentiments already posted. Sigh. RIP Jim.
  18. And today, I sign off on all of MY songs in the project. Now I'm helping getting the remaining songs mixed and mastered.
  19. @JDoyle got me some tracks over the weekend, and I just spent 4 hours working on integrating them as the guitar solo. Like I said earlier, we are working on this every day to get it released soon. It's almost midnight, and I'm old, so I have to go to bed now.
  20. @Eris Falling I am a pianist first, drummer second, and guitarist DEAD last. I write with a piano. So... translating that with a guitar might present some challenges from an arrangement perspective.
  21. Har har har. 😑
  22. We literally are working every day. I wrote a guitar solo yesterday that is in being worked on presently.
