We can't imagine Doom being Doom without Mick Gordon behind the game's amazing soundtrack. And he is going to be back with the soundtrack for the upcoming Doom Eternal. However, this time around Mick Gordan has come up with a unique concept for Doom's score - a metal choir!

The official Doom Eternal - Soundtrack behind-the-scenes video from Bethesda showcases how Mick Gordon and his 20-person heavy metal choir worked on the soundtrack for the upcoming demon-slaying game. In the video, Gordon states that despite Doom Eternal being the sequel to Doom 2016, it still requires a unique approach when designing its score. Gordon said that it was a big challenge putting together a heavy metal choir and the only way he could do that was by putting out an open invitation to heavy metal singers.

The applicants were narrowed down to 20 vocalists, belonging to a variety of bands. The final choir that Gordon assembled consisted of an even split of men and women, who brought together their skills ranging from Mongolian metal to trap metal. Many of these artists come from popular bands like Accursed Creator, Apothica, Aborted, and so on.

"We'd already discussed some chants that harken back to the Slayer's origins," audio lead designer for Doom Eternal, Chad Massholder, said in the video. "The idea of taking a heavy metal choir and having them do the chants for the Slayer was amazing."
