OCR01385 - Doom "Purgatory"

Recommended Posts

For those of you awaiting a break-down of which songs appear in this excellent mix, here is what I heard:

1:15 E1M1

1:40 E1M4

2:20 E1M5

3:10 E1M1 (reprisal)

I get the feeling that first minute isn't just original material, but I can't quite seem to place it.

The intro I found kind of disturbing, likely due to it being so late (1:37am) and I'm about to go to bed. Usually these kinds of things don't bother me, but once the music kicked in I was fine. :) I liked the guitars and everything! The only problem (for me) with this remix is that I don't think I could listen to it on repeat forever like the previous two songs. This will go in my Music Collection on my hard drive, but I wish it was something I could have on repeat without being in some rare mood. Still, good stuff! :)

A nice mix of E1M1, E1M4 and E1M5 here. This'd please the people who have only played Doom Shareware too since it's all from the early levels.

It's very bassy but enjoyable to listen to. Nice work.

I found myself comparing this to goat's work a lot of the time. On it's own I guess It isn't bad but I just don't think it stacks up to his (although goat is one of the best, so feel proud about the comparison :P)

I don't feel as though I can bring myself to like it too much. Sorry... I'll give it a few more listens, but there's just some things about it that are disagreeing with me. And it can't just be that metal isn't my genre of choice because Dennis Mott's Castlevania cover is one of my favourite OCR's.

Not for me.

So great. The use of the original riffs is awesome. Its really cool to spot the originals from the midst of this metal mayhem. And the use of the synth bass with the original songs´ guitar riffs is really inventice and sounds awesome. A great tribute to great tracks. Me likey...

It seems OC Remix is really going Doom-crazy these days. (wink wink, nudge nudge again..)

YEAH!!!

*Massive Headbanging*

Wow, this would be a perfect live song. The intro builds up the tension, and everyone is waiting to see what happens. Then, the guitar kicks in, and the pit explodes! The guitar has a damn good sound to it, what kinda pickups is in it? And for that matter, what amp is it?

Awesome song, it really inspires the metalhead in me. Great riffs, some wicked licks in that solo, and a cool intro. And, best of all, it sounds polished and professional. Please, can we have some more?

Right after the screaming at the beginning, thunder and rain suddenly roared loudly right outside my window. Then the guitar kicked in hard.

This is pretty good.

This is my only remix review, ever. In my time registered on these forums I have never reviewed a remix until now. All I have to say is this... It will rock your face off. :twisted:

Niiiiice! Kind of like a techno-inspired Korn with a special appearance by Steve Vai for the guitar solo. 8) Instantly one of my favorites.

Trash metal of industry. The arrangement is quite amazing; absent of repetitions, good variation of the original tracks. Has some atmospheric noises that I liked on beginning, like screams and such. Something awesome happen at 01:12, At Doom's Gate Theme was decently played. Instrumentation of high quality. And "Purgatory" is a perfect and creative title for this mix.

Great job.

Yea I think this song is amazing when I played on my set today (right after it came out) I got like 20 pm's on IRC wanting to know where to get it. So I think people will love this song.

Hey guys!

Thanks a heap for the crit! I guess that I have always been a large fan of OcRemix and I just wanted to do something a little bit different.

To answer some questions about the rig:

The guitar is a home-made, 7string, aluminum hollow body, 26 fret beast which I tune down a semi-tone. As for pickups, there is a Dimarzio Evo7 in the bridge and a Blaze7 in the neck.

I used my Fender Blues Delux amp with a Marshall Guv'nor distortion pedal and recorded it with a Shure 58 and a Marshall MX 550.

I had great fun doing it and I think that OcRemix has done a great job over the years making Game music quite popular. I cant wait to send of my next one!

Nice rig you've got there! Not very many aluminum guitars around, though. The pickups are nice, and the amp is beautiful. Every single Fender amp I've heard had beautiful tone. I wish I had the money for a nice set-up like that, but I have a feeling I won't for another 8 or 9 years (when I'm done with university)

I like it, though the only problem I have is the synth transisitions between the DOOM songs and the weak ass drum tones. Seriously, if the double bass and snare and everything were beefed up, it would be absolutely killer. Still good stuff though.
