Need something to get The Monster Mash out of your head? Try these recommendations straight from id staffers themselves!
Prey – Parkway Drive
“I could go on and on with songs I love that push my creativity and productivity, but I'll leave you with this. My favorite metalcore band was introduced to me by a co-worker when I joined id in 2015. Never heard of Parkway Drive before. First song I put in was "Wild Eyes" from their album Atlas. I got hooked right away and started to listen to their stuff nonstop. PWD was the first metal show I went to after I moved to Dallas and OH. MY. GOD; they were amazing.”
- Daniel Gagne, Senior UI Artist
Get Myself Into It – The Rapture
“This has been a workout hype song for me for years. The same feeling of adrenaline during a hard workout is how I feel about the best moments in DOOM.”
- Jesse Printz, Senior Services Programmer
Death Dance – Sevendust
“Great band, and who doesn’t like a metal tango?”
- Carson Fee, Senior Audio Programmer
He Is (HEALTH Remix) – Ghost
“The original track, performed by the popular Swedish rock band Ghost, is a fiendishly creative inversion of a religious hymnal; while the verse/refrain structure and sing-along chorus suggest a song that you might hear at a place of worship, the Satanic-influenced lyrics are much more sinister - even apocalyptic. Add in some of HEALTH’s ominous low-end ambience and you’ve got a real “Hell on Earth” type of atmosphere. This is definitely a song to set the mood while the world is in flames (in DOOM Eternal).”
