A part of the soundtrack for the original QUAKE (and not Doom) was composed by Trent Reznor, of Nine Inch Nails fame. The “complete” connect would’ve been that the ammunition boxes in the game have the NIN logo on them.

  1. Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails had created the audio for the Quake series. The symbol NIN appears on all ammos in the game.

  2. udupendra

    Quake, the game’s background score was composed by Trent Reznor and the Nine Inch Nails.

  3. The first picture is a screenshot of Doom, the original first-person-shooter game. In 2006, a movie called Doom, based on the game was released. From the soundtrack of the movie “You Know What You Are?” is a remix of covers of Nine Inch Nails’ (NIN) tracks.
    The last picture of course, is Trent Reznor, who is the man that runs NIN.

    As a continued association between NIN and the Quake/Doom series, the sound effects and background music on Quake, is credited to NIN again. It is also rumored that a nail box logo is visible on ammunition boxes on the original Quake.

    1. Doom (i think its the old Doom )
    2. Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails

    Trent Rezner likes id software’s Doom so much that he used to get his Desktop on tour buses to play. Also, he has created a sound track for id’s Quake and is worked (but failed) on a track for id’s Doom 3.

  6. The game looks something like willrock or doom

    Soundtrack for doom by NIN.

    If ever there were a marriage made in hell (and we mean that in a good way), it has to be Quake plus Nine Inch Nails. The venerable first-person shooter was, upon release, a breakthrough in terms of dark and scary immersive action. The same can be said for the soundtrack, put together by Trent Reznor of the industrial angst flag-bearer Nine Inch Nails. Look closely, and you can see the NIN logo embedded in the game.

  8. Madan

    CONNECT:The boxes of nail ammo in Quake bore the Nine Inch Nails logo

    My guess is that this band created the Doom Soundtrack.
    “You know what you are?”

    Nine Inch Nails did the soundtrack for Doom. There’s also an Easter Egg revealing the NIN symbol in some level of Doom.
