Bethesda allege Doom Eternal composer Mick Gordon’s statement was “one-sided and unjust”

The publishers of Doom Eternal have shared a strongly worded statement aimed at composer Mick Gordon, following Gordon’s recent outpouring on Medium. Bethesda tweeted their statement last night, calling Gordon’s lengthy post explaining his experience working on Doom Eternal’s soundtrack “a one-sided and unjust account of an irreparable professional relationship”. Gordon had replied to an open letter published on Reddit by id Software executive producer Marty Stratton, more than two years after Stratton’s letter was posted online. Read more

Doom Eternal composer responds to id Software exec’s “hurtful lie”, two years later

Composer Mick Gordon has published a rebuttal to an open letter by id Software executive producer Marty Stratton concerning Doom Eternal‘s soundtrack. Stratton’s post was written all the way back in May 2020, and Gordon’s response is a doozy. “Marty lied about the circumstances surrounding the DOOM Eternal Soundtrack and used disinformation and innuendo to blame me entirely for its failure,” Gordon said in the post on Medium. Gordon claims that Stratton later offered a six-figure amount if he never spoke about the matter, but Gordon insists he turned the money down. Read more

Happily, the new footage looks lovely, what with all those plasma beam reflections bouncing off the glass walls and polished metal floors, but honestly, when you’re ripping and tearing at…

By Sherif Saed, Wednesday, 17 February 2021 15:07 GMT Doom’s unmistakable sound can evidently infect music from other games fairly well.Doom and Hades may not have much in common, beyond being critical darlings, but their music is both memorable and so fitting of their styles that it’s hard to experience them without such a core component of their makeup.But what if you could Doom-ify the Hades soundtrack?
