Rock/Metal Songs That Fit Doom

Guys after seeing that pop songs that fit Doom I'm surprised to see that there isn't a thread for this. I love hard rock and metal music and I'm sure there are a few people in Doomworld that like that as well. I saw a few songs such as Points Of Authority by Linkin Park and A Little Piece of Heaven by Avenged Sevenfold so I want to ask the doom community the question? What metal songs do you think fit in doom? Maybe it may be a stupid question since rock and metal would fit the fast paced action of doom. But anyway please share. I'll start with a few.

To people who don't like metalcore as well, please don't hate my suggestions as there are a few.

Avenged Sevenfold - God Hates Us
Asking Alexandria - Final Episode
Shinedown - Cyanide Sweet Tooth Suicide
Linkin Park - Forgotten
Breaking Benjamin - Crawl
Nickelback - Because Of You

These are my suggestions so feel free to share yours

I frequently use metal tracks in my maps. My personal favorites are tracks from Lamb of God and Disturbed.

Skeletonwitch - "Crushed Beyond Dust" "Soul Thrashing Black Sorcery" "Upon Wings of Black"
Children of Bodom - "Bodom After Midnight"
Mastodon - "Crusher Destroyer"
Megadeth - "Hangar 18"

But really, Doom is already set to metal. I'd kind of like to play Doom to Huey Lewis and the News, or Al Green. Maybe some Eddie Money in there. Listen to him crooning "Take Me Home Tonight" while shotgunning an imp at close range.

Lamb Of God - Walk With Me In Hell


Can't believe I didn't think of this. I think the main riff of this song would work really well in MIDI format, too.


High on Fire - Speedwolf
Holy Grail - Fight to Kill

I think the music should be of the same area when DOOM was released, i.e. early 90s. I'd like to add

Samael - Into the Pentagram

to the list.

I used this song on one of my maps for SF2012. It did work quite well.

Sigvatr once made a MIDI version of The Philsopher by Death. Though I'm more fond of ambient music in Doom, the result was pretty awesome.

I'll be damned if I can find it though :(

Yeah that was really cool, although the post that contained it that wasn't even written by him got sent to post hell because he isn't allowed to post. Maybe I have it on the Doom wad he pm'd me.

OT, off the top of my head some songs that have been converted to great midis.
Bathory - "Necromancy"
Bathory - "Great Hall Awaits a Fallen Brother"
Sarcofago - "Screeches from the Silence"
DismembeR - "Nenia"
EntombeD - "Left Hand Path"
Judas Priest - "Painkiller"
Judas Priest - "Night Crawler"
