I am a sucker for developer diaries. They offer an unprecedented look into how our favourite games become what they are while offering insight into how game development, as unique as it is, functions as an art form.

Doom, with its incredible soundtrack, left me wondering how exactly it came to be. So it is lucky then, that Doom composer Mick Gordon has released two videos that go behind the scenes to see exactly how he achieved such an angry, evil sound with the game.

Check them out!

I think my favourite thing about the soundtrack beyond it’s otherworldly, hellish soundscapes and atmospheric droning and pulsing, is that Mick utilizes modern metal to help craft such a unique sound. From Djent to 9-string guitars to Russian synthesizers, he holds nothing back and it definitely shows.

I certainly hope this isn’t the last look at Doom and its development.
