Id Software's Doom reboot from 2016 delivered a very satisfying new demon slaying experience, managing to win the hearts of fans and critics alike. Its soundtrack also played a big part in the game's reception, going on to win the Best Music / Sound Design award at The Game Awards 2016 and even receiving a nomination for Best Music and Audio Achievement at BAFTA Games last year.
Composed by Mick Gordon, the Doom soundtrack will soon be available in physical formats, with Bethesda announcing today that the original game soundtrack will be available on CD and vinyl forms sometime in summer 2018.
There are four editions of this metal and synth soundtrack to choose from, some even coming with "blood red vinyl" records. Provided by Bethesda, the separate editions are detailed below alongside their recommended retail prices:
- Deluxe Double CD ($15): Featuring a premium triple gatefold sleeve and available direct from Laced Records and participating retailers worldwide
