On Sunday, the 1st of March 2020, Belgian industrial metal combo released a free 6 map pack add-on for the classic first person shooter DooM 2.
This map has 6 levels built by one of the band members and each map has a track from Spankraght ’s debut album ‘Thou Shalt Drown In The Blood Of Thy Children’.
“With the release of ID Software’s highly anticipated DooM Eternal on March 20, we wanted to give gamers something to kill the time until release. DooM has always had a metal background as some of tracks on the original soundtracks were nods to songs from bands like Pantera, Alice In Chains, Metallica, …. This game needs to played with pumping beats and chugging guitars so it was only natural for us to make this level pack. It’s also a great way to introduce people to our music. The versions used in the add-on, are loopable edits of the tracks of the album. All without the vocals and some even without synths or guitars. This way we give the songs from the album an extra life, we didn’t just want to drop an album and go out play. These tracks are the ideal soundtrack to kill on, so that’s what you’re able to do.” // Spankraght
