MIDI Music Identification: Cover or Original?

Post by Evil Operative »

I'd like to know if this piece of excellent music from the map E1M2 of wad file MEGAWAD.wad is either a cover of an already existing music or did the authors make it completely from scratch. And I need your help in figuring that out.

I guarantee you it's not a virus. This .zip file contains the midi file only.

It is squeaky clean.

I gave it a listen, couldn't recognize it. It does sound like a cover to me. Music made intentionally for doom tends to be less jolly and more speed metal-y :p

Megawad.wad is a compilation created by the author of MarsWar and maintainer of the ToastyTech site.

There's a Doomworld thread for music identification:

There's a recap of known megawad.wad songs on page 12.

But here, spoiler warning for E1M2:

That is the sickest MIDI of Frankenstein that has ever and will ever exist. It sounds amazing.
