Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Laced Records, in partnership with Bethesda Softworks and id Software, present the long-awaited vinyl debut of the DOOM (Original Game Soundtrack) by composer Mick Gordon, cut at the world famous Abbey Road Studios, pressed on colored 180g 2LP and cased in a deluxe sleeve with full printed inner sleeves. A Game Awards 2016 Winner for Best Music / Sound Design and BAFTA Games Nominee for Best Music and Audio Achievement, the DOOM soundtrack brings the trademark pulse-pounding and demon-stomping audio experience to fans for the first time. Composed by long-time Bethesda collaborator Mick Gordon, his dark and intense vision channels industrial metal to mirror DOOM's trademark brutal power fantasy gameplay across synth and metal-filled tracks.
A true passion project, the recording process saw Gordon representing DOOM's portrayal of Hell through the role of energy in sound production, imparting the physical properties of analogue equipment onto digital sources. To mimic the power of Hell and its corruptive Argent energy, Mick created the "DOOM Instrument." Consisting of pure sine wave inputs directed into four separate sound processing chains and a variety of post-processing techniques, it allowed Gordon to dynamically ‘corrupt' generated sounds. Further callbacks to the franchise's legacy and imagery are found as the soundtrack's signature screeching guitar lines are layered with the chainsaw audio from the original 1993 title.
