Doom Eternal composer says he doubts he'll work with Id again over soundtrack quality

The composer of Doom Eternal's soundtrack Mick Gordon (pictured) has criticised the official release of that game's music.

That follows Twitter user thatACDCguy posting a thread on the Doom Eternal score in which they compared the track BFG Division from 2016's Doom reboot and the recently-released 2019 follow-up. The blogger says that the former version has more "breathing room" compared to the edition that appears on the Doom Eternal soundtrack release.

Gordon replied, saying that he didn't mix the songs that were on the official release, with the exception of tracks, including Meathook, Command and Control. He also reportedly told an Instagram user – as shared on Reddit – that he doubted he'd work with Id on future Doom releases.

"I take a lot of pride in my work," Gordon told PCGamer.

"It’s all I do, it’s all I have and I pour my heart and soul into it."

Bethesda has claimed the Doom Eternal had the series' best opening weekend to date. The title hit 104.9k concurrent users on Steam on launch
