Talk:Doom II music


Map10 also sounds a BIT like Mandatory Suicide by Slayer. Anyone agree with this? ~Tom D

One of maps has also music, which sounds very like Eurythmics:Greetings From A Dead Man. I recommend to download and hear; I think it is map 26, or 28, I can't remember. -- 22:07, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

d_runnin sounds like hangar 18? who smoked that up? the two songs are nothing alike, not even superficially. ~dethtoll

It uses the exact same chord progression. Bloodshedder 00:43, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
i don't hear that at ALL. and i've been listening to both songs for years. ~dethtoll
(ps) can i have some sort of eminent proof here? gave both songs another listen and i just flatout don't hear it. give me tabs or something. ~dethtoll
Sure. Here. Things I did to make them match:
  • Sped up Hangar 18 by two semitones, without preserving the tempo.
  • Slowed down D_RUNNIN.MID to 85 tempo, recorded it to WAV format.
RUNNIN uses the same progression of chords as Hangar 18, except it is shifted up by two semitones: E+G+B (E minor), E+G+C, E+G+C#, E+G+D. Hangar 18 simply begins on D minor instead, and has the same upward shift of a single semitone of the highest note in the chord. RUNNIN has the additional quick move back down before the next bar starts. The same basic progression makes up the bulk of both songs. Bloodshedder 22:18, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
okay. i hear it now. but... i don't know, it seems a little coincidental, especially since d_runnin has to be sped up a bit. some of the others are much more obvious- a friend of mine who's never heard pantera commented that "rise" sounded like a doom remix rather than the other way around. none of the others need to be that significantly toyed with to hear any similarity, at least to my ear. dethtoll
I've a question. The template states that the MUS for maps 20 and 26 is based on Slayer's "Skeletons of Society," but I can't find the similarities between the two. Can anyone help me find these similarities, please? Torq95 05:13, December 8, 2010 (UTC)


To say MAP04 is based on Wolf3D music is like saying Beethoven's 6th symphony is based on his 5th. There are no similarities between MAP04 and Wolf 3D's "Zero Hour" except the same blues/rock patterns that are heard in a sizable portion of Bobby Prince music. And that's because it's Bobby Prince music. :) Zack 13:24, June 16, 2010 (UTC)


King Crimson, really? I've been a fan of theirs for years and I can't hear the similarity between DM2INT and "Thela Hun Ginjeet" at all. 15:33, October 20, 2010 (UTC)


Unlike on the Doom article, I wouldn't contest any of the speculative source removals here. None of those songs sound anything like the corresponding Doom song to me. --Quasar (talk) 02:06, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

There are still three left that are unsourced, but they sounded so clearly similar that I left them in anyway. Fraggle (talk) 02:17, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
