Project: Doom Redux

Postby silentzorah » Mon May 30, 2016 11:51 pm

Sooo... It's been a loooong time since I released the Project: Doom remix compilation. Like, I put that out there back in 2008. I thought it was cool for a while, and evidently, some mappers did as well, considering I've seen one or two tracks finding their way into a community project or two.

Though, over time, I found myself increasingly disappointed in my older works, and thought it would be a good idea to go back and give them a facelift. And by facelift, I mean basically redo the entire track from scratch. The result? A small subset of redux remixes.

By no means do I intend to make this a complete soundtrack redux - God no, that's 57 tracks. But, I did go back and redo a few tracks that I was unsatisfied with, and here they are. Check 'em out, I've got them in MIDI and MP3 formats.

So like, uh... Use 'em in your stuff! Or something. Iunno.

Running From Evil
MIDI: http://zorasoft.net/midi/Doom_II_-_Runn ... Redux-.mid
MP3: http://zorasoft.net/midi/mp3/Doom_II_-_ ... Redux-.mp3
Running From Evil (Redux) revisits a special time in my childhood where Doom II was brand fragging new. Rather than simply do yet another metal cover of the song, I decide to go back to my childhood roots where it all began - This is Doom II as I heard it when I was ten years old.

Heavily inspired by Nemistade's awesome cover.

The Imp's Song
MIDI: http://zorasoft.net/midi/Doom_-_The_Imp ... Redux-.mid
MP3: http://zorasoft.net/midi/mp3/Doom_-_The ... Redux-.mp3
For The Imp's Song (Redux), I once again revisit my childhood years to bring back a feeling of suspense for this track. With a little ass kicking toward the second half of the song for good measure.

Heavily inspired by Andrew Hulshult's mix.

Suspense
MIDI: http://zorasoft.net/midi/Doom_-_Suspense_-Redux-.mid
MP3: http://zorasoft.net/midi/mp3/Doom_-_Sus ... Redux-.mp3
Ahh, Suspense. Doom wasn't all about killing everything that moved. With the right amount of atmosphere, you could create a truly threatening environment. This track mixes old with new, bridging the gap between Classic and Project: Doom.

Based on Sonic Clang's cover, and inspired by Andrew Hushult's awesome idea of mixing ambience with metal.

Kitchen Ace (And Taking Names)
MIDI: http://zorasoft.net/midi/Doom_-_Kitchen_Ace_-Redux-.mid
MP3: http://zorasoft.net/midi/mp3/Doom_-_Kit ... Redux-.mp3
I've always wanted to flesh out the drums on this song, ever since I released Project: Doom. And now, after eight years, I finally got around to it. Woo!

At Doom's Gate
MIDI: http://zorasoft.net/midi/Doom_-_At_Doom ... Redux-.mid
MP3: http://zorasoft.net/midi/mp3/Doom_-_At_ ... Redux-.mp3
At Doom's Gate has always been an iconic song, and I don't feel like I ever did it proper justice in Project: Doom. So this redux was a second attempt at this piece, to give it the love it needed.

The Healer Stalks
MIDI: http://zorasoft.net/midi/Doom_II_-_The_ ... Redux-.mid
MP3: http://zorasoft.net/midi/mp3/Doom_II_-_ ... Redux-.mp3
While the original is kinda upbeat, the Project: Doom cover sounds like it was ripped straight out of Super Mario. I wanted to give this piece a makeover, to give it a more decidedly eerie/sneaky feel to it.

Demons on the Prey
MIDI: http://zorasoft.net/midi/Doom_-_Demons_ ... Redux-.mid
MP3: http://zorasoft.net/midi/mp3/Doom_-_Dem ... Redux-.mp3
Heavily influenced by The Orichalcon's "Phobos Modulus" and Kinkiness' E1M7 covers.

Sign of Evil
MIDI: http://zorasoft.net/midi/Doom_-_Sign_of ... Redux-.mid
MP3: http://zorasoft.net/midi/mp3/Doom_-_Sig ... Redux-.mp3
One again, I felt Project: Doom fell short of this one. This theme really needs the pitch bending I was unable to provide at the time, but rather than just update the existing track, I went and rewrote it from scratch.

Heavily influenced by Sonic Clang's E1M8 theme.

Normally this is the part where I say "Happy Fragging." So, uh... Happy Listening?

Good stuff! I'll have to look up the rest of them when I get the chance.
