These covers are great, Xeotroid. I love that you are covering music from some classic wads and other things that don't get much coverage like Chex Quest. I don't suppose there's any chance we might see covers of Wolfenstein 3D or SOD in the future?

Thanks! I have some old unreleased Wolfenstein 3-D tracks that I'm not entirely happy with, I might release them with the sticker "Unfinished". ;)

Your music covers are pretty incredible if I say so myself. Love using them as replacements to the original MIDI tracks. Your guitar sound is great.

So far Requiem's is still my favorite. I love Jacob's Staircase from Requiem, such a great sound. Hunter's Lair is also amazing.

I was blown away the first time I heard Somewhere Over the Horizon, but I noticed there's some audio crackling in the audio wavelengths. Tried to fix it with Audacity but there's so many of them. Maybe take a look at it and see if it can be repaired on your end faster? Such a great track.

His work It is fantastic, some tracks have vocals. :wub:

The cover of E2M4 : Deimos Lab (Ultimate Doom) impressed me.

I just felt lack of TNT Evilution, you have?

Great stuff, and gets better and better! The Memento Mori and Plutonia covers are my current favs. Rock on!

YES! We need TNT's unique tracks covered next, then mix them with his already done Doom II tracks to create a TNT pack!

I agree with TNT also deserves Covers.

The "remasters" of Xeodroid are the best I found.

Oh damn, I didn't bother to check the thread... Thanks all for your support!
Maaaybe I'll actually do TNT's soundtrack, however I'm currently looking into some other Plutonia mods. It's actually looking quite good and soon I could release some preview of it, so stay tuned! ;)
After that I'll check out TNT. I already did a cover of one of the tracks and I always wanted to cover Sadistic but I always screwed it up. That was a long time ago, so we'll see.

Sequel and community project?

Exactly. I started with Community Project, but paused when I found one of the tracks was from Plutonia 2, so that's what you're going to see next.

I gave in and gave some of these a listen. Not too bad, I have to say. I expected the guitar (and drums) for say "At Doom's Gate" and "Shawn's Got The Shotgun" to be heavier (respectfully). But these aren't too bad at all. I'm a big fan of TNT and I can't wait until you get that one all settled.

Yeah, I messed up At Doom's Gate. It was the last track I covered in Doom 1 and I just wanted to finish it and this less heavy guitar is kind of easier to work with. With Shawn's Got the Shotgun, I made it before I had access to some nice heavy drums samples, so I used standard drum sounds (that I still use today, they are really good otherwise).
Personally, I don't mind Shawn, but I feel like I need to re-do E1M1 someday, even though I probably won't because it has been covered countless times by many more artists who are better at guitars than I am. Thanks for your opinion!

Weird, I never noticed them before, but there are some in the FLAC version (and subsequently in MP3, too). My best guess is that I did Requiem before I changed some settings in FL Studio that caused notes cutting off during rendering (and when a sound ends without any fade, you can hear a pop). I'm going to look into this but not right now. Thanks for letting me know!

It is maybe me or not, but i feel some experienced mappers and stuff should revive Plutonia styled wads and stuff.
