Aussie composer Mick Gordon has been flying our flag overseas for years, most recently bringing together the incredible soundtrack for the 2016 reboot of the beloved Doom series.

Now, he wants you to join a hellish army of metalheads for his next project – if you’ve got the heavy metal vocal chords to back it up – meaning that you could potentially be a part of the soundtrack for its brutal-looking follow-up, DOOM Eternal.

As Polygon reports, Gordon has taken to socials to recruit fans of his work for a paid gig screaming their lungs out for a range of demonic dirges. And while he doesn’t explicitly say it’s for the DOOM sequel, all the pieces fit.

“I’m currently writing music for a video game,” Mick begins. “I really want to record a choir, but for this project, I don’t want to record a regular choir; I want to record a choir made up entirely of Heavy Metal Screamers.”

“Therefore, here is an open invitation to anyone out there who wants to apply to join our Heavy Metal Choir,” he continues, explaining that the gig is open to anyone.

“We’re looking for all types of screamers. Your level of experience doesn’t matter. We’re looking for all genders. As long as you’re over 18, it doesn’t matter how old you are.

“As long as you have a killer metal scream, I want you.”

The only thing that might hold you back is that, unfortunately, you’ll need to get to the studio in Austin, Texas to lay down the tracks.

But, for a chance to be a part of one of the most revered gaming series in history – and what will hands-down be one of the best soundtracks of the year – that might just be a small price to pay for any metal and gaming devotee.

Details on how to join up are given in Mick’s short recruitment video above, so if you can make it to Texas, give it a look!

And if you’re somehow not yet familiar with Mick’s work reinventing an iconic soundtrack for a new generation of FPS gamers – including his addition of a 9-string guitar to give it that meaty, gothic sound – check out the quick doco below.
