You may remember news from the start of the year that Mick Gordon, the composer behind the badass soundtracks for recent Doom and Wolfenstein games, was putting together a heavy metal choir for the Doom Eternal OST. Alongside news of the Doom Eternal release date from Bethesda’s E3 conference today, Gordon has released a 30-second clip of the music – and I’m pretty sure that’s the metal choir which you can faintly hear at around 20 seconds.
Regardless, scroll down to Gordon’s tweets to enjoy a tasty teaser of some seriously heavy, grinding, industrial metal – the perfect lullaby to rock some demons to their eternal sleep.
If you missed the Bethesda showcase, let’s catch you up: Doom Eternal is out on November 22, you get to visit Heaven in it (though its agents don’t look much friendlier than the demons), it’s getting a new asymmetric multiplayer mode, and if you order the Collector’s Edition you can get a wearable replica Doom Slayer helmet.
Here’s that 30-second soundtrack preview:

Gordon’s Twitter is a cool place to spend some time if you’re interested in his process. Here’s a shot of the metal choir itself, readying for action:
