The DOOM franchise has always been known for having a frenetic pace and bloody, gory combat. However, part of what makes the DOOM franchise so badass is its killer soundtrack. The composer behind DOOM 2016‘s head-banging music, Mick Gordon has returned to DOOM Eternal and he brought a Heavy Metal Choir with him.
Check out the behind-the-scenes video of the most hardcore choir practice of all time.
Introducing the DOOM Eternal Heavy Metal Choir: an eclectic group of heavy metal vocalists from diverse backgrounds and experiences that all share one thing in common: a love for DOOM. A result of an open casting call, the choir includes names such as Tony Campos (Ministry; Static X), Sven De Caluwe (Aborted), Linzey Rae (The Anchor), and more. Mick, alongside the talented sound team at id Software, created the choir’s signature chant, pieced together from a mysterious and ancient language that hearkens back to the Slayer’s origins. The chant seamlessly weaves into the soundtrack and ties directly into the lore of DOOM Eternal.
Bethesda and id Software will release DOOM Eternal on March 20, 2020 for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Google Stadia.
