i felt i'd try and get some more attention out of my music pack in this thread by making a thread of its own for it, mostly to (hopefully) get more critique on how good the tracks are and how well they compliment the levels themselves.
anywho, here's the WAD file itself: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hu4v8coewxm18x0/vyemus.zip it replaces every track in Doom 2 with music of my own, as well as including some bonus tracks in it that i considered could fit in the pack. the tracks in order are as follows:
D_RUNNIN: Rise. a fast-paced metal track to start up the action immediately.
D_STALKS: Untitled. slow-paced, gloomy track to fit the slow trudge through the underhalls.
D_COUNTD: Viscous Reception. also slow-paced, featuring gracious use of fading in and out instruments.
D_BETWEE: Untitled. busy, pretty simple track.
D_DOOM: At The Jester's Tent (Dusk Mix). slow, long, and somewhat orchestrated piece.
D_THE_DA: Oliver Arcane - Nightfall (Remix). slow guitar-based track, pretty quiet in volume.
D_SHAWN: Mutaland. fast-paced, aggressive metal to fit the slow, hectic chase through the Mancubus and Arach onslaught.
D_DDTBLU: Hydrant. Weird guitar-based track, as the original DDTBLU is quite a weird Doom track.
D_IN_CIT: The Fall of Galant. mid-tempo, somewhat progressive electronic track.
D_DEAD: Backlash. Guitar-track, slow at first, but slowly builds up into something more hectic, falls apart, then re-builds itself. pretty long.
D_ROMERO: Silky Feathers. pretty quiet electronic-styled track, meant to be some kind of psytrance originally but this can't be called psytrance in its current state. maybe ambient trance?`
D_SHAWN2 & 3: Ascension of Satan. progressive metal epic to keep the journey going.
D_MESSAG: Not A Clever Pony - For The New Lunar Republic (Remix). metal DNB-ish track, pretty long.
D_AMPIE: Serj Tankian - Blue (Remix). psychedelic metal track. it should fit way better on this slot than the death metal shit i used earlier.
D_ADRIAN: Memorical Subligations. panicky, eerie track.
D_TENSE: Assault on 849. probably one of the biggest deviations of mood from the original Doom 2 OST. fast-paced electronic hardcore track to cleanse out the evils of Hell with.
D_OPENIN: I Am Defect. mourning orchestra-style track to fit with the end of it all.
D_EVIL: Opel. an odd track is all i can describe it as.
D_ULTIMA: The Ex-Positioner. fast, dramatic metal, meant to be boss-style music.
D_READ_M: Child's Play. mysterious, unraveling track.
D_DM2TTL: At The Jester's Tent (INtro Mix). just an orchestra-ish intro track, nothing else to say about it.
D_DM2INT: Don't Forget Me. pop/punk rock track, meant to give a cheery "you survived!" kind of vibe.
here you can preview the whole pack minus bonus tracks.
D_SHAWN2 & 3
D_OPENIN (not the actual version! this is a soundfont render of the track!)
THE STORY SO FAR
ALTERNATIVE TIMELINE: While Doomguy was on his way to kick Hell's ass outta his home planet, it turns out that he lost his iPod filled with the entire soundtrack of Doom 2 while making his way mysteriously backwards in the timeline of Ultimate Doom and Doom 2! Oh no! Now the players have to play the entire game without being able to listen to Bobby Prince's 8-bar Slayer rip-off music! Unless...
TA-DAAAAA! Miraculously enough, Doomguy managed to find a ZEN player from the corpse of a deceased UAC-officer on the way back from travelling in time! Unfortunately, it doesn't contain any Bobby Prince, 8-bar Slayer music on it, but the entire soundtrack is actually from the future! How this UAC-officer managed to retrieve the music of some unknown, 21st century, backwards-musician from the National Gay Capital of Sweden is beyond me, and I AM from the National Gay Capital of Sweden! But who cares about the story to a music WAD, right? Onwards to the fray, and onto the future! (of an alternative timeline, less superior soundtracked Doom 2)
i'll make descriptions for the other bonus tracks in the album some other time. all tracks listed on the tracks that have repeats in the original game also repeats in this track, the only exception being D_SHAWN, which is a unique track.
so yeah, i think that's about it. tell me what you think about it and stuff!
