For the millionth time, Vrenna/Tweaker did the theme song.
(Los Angeles, California, July 20th, 2004) – id Software™, one of the world’s leading video game developers, today announced that noted producer-composers Chris Vrenna and Clint Walsh have produced the theme song to the highly anticipated DOOM 3™, set for release August 3rd, 2004.
A terrifying battle with the forces of Hell, DOOM 3’s dramatic storyline, incredible action, mind-blowing graphics, 5.1 surround sound and ground-breaking technology are fused together to draw gamers into the most frightening, shocking, and gripping first-person gaming experience ever created.
Renowned as one of the founding members of Nine Inch Nails, Chris Vrenna is recognized as one of the top producer-remixers in the music business, having worked with a ‘who’s who’ of artists such as U2 for Lara Croft : Tomb Raider, P.O.D. for The Scorpion King as well as Weezer, David Bowie, Smashing Pumpkins and Rob Zombie amongst many others. Vrenna recently released his second Tweaker album (created with collaborator Clint Walsh) titled 2 a.m. wakeup call on the Waxploitation label.
“I have been a fan of almost every game id has developed”, said Vrenna. “I grew up on DOOM, QUAKE and Wolfenstein, so this was a huge honor for me to have been asked. Clint and I have created something worthy of the task, that both game and music fans will be into.”
Vrenna has produced and composed music for a number of video games including American McGee’s Alice, id Software’s QUAKE (as a member of NIN), The Sims II, Enter The Matrix, as well as upcoming games such as Tabula Rasa and Area 51.
”We asked Chris to create a modern DOOM 3 theme song that reflected the character and intensity of DOOM3, and we couldn’t be happier with the final product,” said Todd Hollenshead, CEO, id Software. “Chris and id have shared a mutual appreciation for each others work, and it was exciting to be able to team up on something that fans of both id and Vrenna will appreciate.”
