I don’t think I can tell you how many hours I stayed awake, sneaking into the computer room to play Doom, the incredibly controversial (when it was released) PC game created by ID. Shooting and blowing up the demons of Hell felt like my sacred duty, as though every one that I killed was one less that could potentially hurt my friends or family. Add to that the bonus feature of it being fun as hell and you’ve got some serious memories right there.
Oklahoma progressive rock band Vangough is inspired by the band in some similar way as they have a badass cover of “Thy Flesh Consumed”, which was the title of the fourth episode, only available with the The Ultimate Doom edition. The song is part of the band’s latest album Between The Madness. Head on down to check it out!
Also, the band has released a cover of Metroid 2’s “The Abyss” here.
