  • This music meshed so well with the Quake gameplay it was ridiculous. Still love the nine inch nails logo on the nail gun ammo boxes.
  • Watching the Quake intro demo after fresh install on my Pentium 166 was a momentous occasion. All of the ambient tracks are called specifically by level in Quake as you play, assuming you have the disc in the drive. Trent also did all of the sound effects for Quake, all of which are permanently burned into my brain.
  • O.p so strang3
  • great song
  • Epic
  • Trent is always my number one. After Fragile nothing is the same for me, something died...and has been reborn....And this is awesome....
  • @vagrant_lust This was composed for a video game. The tracks are going to slow down and repeat endlessly. The whole point is to create atmosphere not to entertain someone in any given situation. The soudntrack to Quake just happens to be amazing for the most part.
  • This game has the ebst soundtrack of all time. I am so happy I have it. :D
  • loved the game series and the soundtrack
