Trent Reznor blows dust off the ‘Quake’ score for vinyl reissue

In Gaming

There’s no date or price for pre-orders, but NIN’s current
pricing for single-record LPs suggests you’ll be paying around
$20. You might not have to wait long to get your copy after it
ships, at least. NIN recently ran into serious delivery
problems for other albums, but a recent change in fulfillment
partners should have sorted that out.

If you haven’t listened to the Quake soundtrack
before, it’s important to note that most of it is eerie ambient
fare. You’re not getting B-sides to The Downward
Spiral
, folks. It added to the game’s sinister atmosphere,
however, and the star power behind the soundtrack stood out at
a time when many developers were just happy to have more than
generic-sounding MIDI tunes. This work also led to Reznor being
tapped to compose the score for Doom 3, though he
ultimately left the project. Whatever you feel about
Quake, consider this: while vinyl game soundtrack
releases are
relatively common
nowadays, this is likely the only one
you’ll ever get from an Oscar-winning artist who
works in the tech industry
.
