When it comes to Doom, there are several satisfying elements that come together to make it such an unforgettable experience. One, of course, is the violence. Another is something you might not expect: the music.

Doom Eternal composer Mick Gordon took to YouTube with a new video explaining his process behind bringing Doom Eternal's soundtrack to life. Over two hours, he discusses his recording process, the way small musical cues are deployed during your time in the game, and his thoughts on how to bring the Doom soundscapes to life.

The video is an exciting look at how the music in Doom Eternal was created and how it ends up melding into what the player is currently doing in-game. Gordon had a lot of intriguing ideas about what players would experience as they made their way through Doom Eternal's different set pieces, as gruesome as many of them could truly be.
