Doom Eternal‘s soundtrack did not launch alongside the game in March. It was delayed, and it only just released the week of April 20. Fans who bought the collector’s edition can now listen to the music, but it’s been discovered that something is not quite right with it.
Twitter user thatACDCguy outlined all the issues with the soundtrack in a Twitter thread. But the long and short of it is that the mix is not what it should be. “The instruments are all fighting each other, & thus the mix sounds very poor as a result,” the user said.
The game’s composer, Mick Gordon, says on Twitter that someone else mixed the majority of the soundtrack’s songs. Gordon only mixed “Meathook,” “Command and Control” and others, and just a “small handful” of the more than two-dozen songs on the OST.
