Doom Eternal OST and Four Other Rocking Soundtracks From 2020
2020 was one of the best years for gaming soundtracks, here are some of the best.
The Doom Eternal OST is one of video game’s most rocking soundtracks. Heavy Guitars help aid the murder of countless demons and ensure you feel like a badass while doing so. Alongside Doom Eternal, last year had some particularly tasty soundtracks that released – here are a few of the best.
Battletoads (Dlala Studios/Rare)
Battletoads was a bit of a sleeper hit in 2020. The game had ultra-stylish gameplay, great visuals and most importantly, a fantastic soundtrack. Composed by David Housden, the OST comprises of crunching guitars and 80’s riffs. Best of all – it’s available on Spotify.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake (Square Enix)
The remake of the beloved Final Fantasy 7 did a lot of things right. The visuals were stunning, gameplay improved, the story was compelling and the score was fantastic. The game managed to interweave some slow, provocative music in with some heavier, more upbeat tunes, making for a very eclectic and equally amazing soundtrack.
Persona 5 Royal (Atlus)
Oh boy. Talking of an eclectic soundtrack, Persona 5 Royal has it all. It was going to be a difficult ask topping tunes like Rivers in the Desert from the first game, but Persona 5 Royal managed it. It built on the already great setlist and added my new favourite, Gentle Madman into the mix. I can’t say enough good things about it and I even purchased the vinyl when it was available.
Star Renegades (Massive Damage)
If you know me, I’ll take any opportunity to blub about Star Renegades. It’s a fantastic indie roguelike with stunning visuals and a soundtrack to match. While the other games in the list include a lot of great songs, Star Renegades’ are more on the atmospheric side – really helping to give an eerie sci-fi feeling to the game.
Doom Eternal OST (id Software)
Of course, I couldn’t complete this list without mentioning the headlining soundtrack. The Doom Eternal OST oozes. Funky electronic sounds combine with some heavy guitar and a heavy metal choir to help players fulfil their ultimate power fantasies.
