"Arranged for the Delta-Q-Delta project, this is based on "The Healer Stalks," Map 2, redone in a style homage to the Silent Hill games. I've always been a big fan of those soundtracks, and I thought fusing that style with the dark nature of Doom would be a cool combination.
I am very pleased with the results. The original theme was extremely boring and repetitive, and quite a challenge to spice up. The metallic nature of this arrangement, combined with the funky backwards strings and the bizarre ambient pads all mix together in a stylistic mimic that is still unique on its own. And, the metallic clanking was recorded personally, by me banging on the railing that leads up to my condo door. :) "
With all the Echoes fuss, and before that Summoning of Spirits and HD Remix, it turns out we've still got some action left from Delta-Q-Delta - and from Chris, no less. In case you somehow missed it, we interviewed Mr. Getman back in May, and he had a lot of insight to offer based on 8+ years with OCR. Not all Doom tracks are created equal, and some of the artists on DQD and Phobos as well did wonders with tracks that were less elaborate; this is no exception. A pulsing heartbeat of a groove palpitates beneath almost jazzy chord stabs as distant piano riffs accentuate things, then at 1'49" we get a bit darker, with clangy industrial metal beats and a sync'd alarm sound segueing into a sweet cross-panned motif of quick, high-pitched insect synths. Things develop, build, and break down from there, but those are the basic building blocks. Larry writes:
"I really enjoyed the deliberate pacing, the sound of the lead, and the piano sprinkled in at 1:05. The soundscape was really expansive and full compared to the original, with some great industrial stuff and Chris's trademark sound, which isn't so much a particular set of sounds as much as an overall quirkiness and mood that's found in all of his stuff. I think a comparison to EarthBound "See Sixty Funk" is valid, as it's another of example of Chris taking a very plain theme that's not particularly melodious and giving it a lot more depth and character. A really awesome part of Delta-Q-Delta, I'm lovin' it."
You've got a driving beat, classic Getman-style home-grown industrial percussive FX, and a dark, hectic atmosphere that conjures the twisting, byzantine corridors of the game. Check it out, and go back & explore the rest of DQD for more.
