Legendary Quake soundtrack hits remastered vinyl!
One of the most iconic soundtracks in gaming history is finally getting the remastered vinyl release it always deserved. That's right: Quake is back.
Quake is a video game by id Software released on June 22, 1996, which features music by Nine Inch Nails. Historically, there was confusion as to whether the soundtrack was credited to NIN or Trent Reznor alone, but this was cleared up by id Software designer American McGee and by the 2020 vinyl edition.
Reznor was also responsible for the game's sound effects. It is notable that this soundtrack contains ambient music, which Reznor went on to explore further with the Ghosts series and various scores created with Atticus Ross. It is also reminiscent of the dark ambient music of Coil.
The soundtrack for the iconic, genre-defying first-person shooter from 1996 is lauded as one of the best game soundtracks ever assembled, helping bring the game's ambiance and world-building to life. But despite the love and buzz, the soundtrack never got the type of release other high profile original accompaniments have scored. The lack of release over these decades is even more mind-boggling when you consider it was put together by Nine Inch Nails' Reznor himself.
