* Industrial: The Suffering’s soundtrack has been designed with the explicit aim to only include sounds relevant to the situation at hand. Thus, the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7XjY2_CzTk quarry soundtrack]] uses rhythmic sounds of rock scraping, [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Dr. Killjoy’s]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4d6r0akI7XU&list=PL5959045B453A71C1 office]] has the sounds of medical instruments and whispers and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAcOZnVw8Pg&list=PL5959045B453A71C1 boss fight]] against Hermes, who died in a gas chamber, is full of gas hissing. The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGXVkvYrxGk&list=PL5959045B453A71C1 main theme]] for the game consists of nothing but the monster audio composed in order to sound as creepy as possible. Surprisingly, it all works well.

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: In one of his [[http://www.erikaho.com/2012/10/06/the-music-from-the-suffering-midway/ posts]] about The Suffering’s music, he recounts an incident in the recording studio that had all the hallmarks of paranormal, and his reaction is effectively this.

* Industrial: The Suffering’s soundtrack has been designed with the explicit aim to only include sounds relevant to the situation at hand. Thus, the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7XjY2_CzTk quarry soundtrack]] uses rhythmic sounds of rock scraping, [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Dr. Killjoy’s]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4d6r0akI7XU&list=PL5959045B453A71C1 office]] has the sounds of medical instruments and whispers and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAcOZnVw8Pg&list=PL5959045B453A71C1 boss fight]] against Hermes, who died in a gas chamber, is full of gas hissing.

Surprisingly, it all works well.
** The Suffering: Ties That Bind continues the tradition. This time, the soundtrack is urban-themed, like the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnW-D3OwwH8&list=PL999DB3A38DFFEDD3 crowd noise]] edited into a fight theme, the sounds of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCqp2W1c-MQ&list=PL999DB3A38DFFEDD military march and broken glass]] for the [[GasMaskMooks Foundation soldiers]], and the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkl0TyuQor8&list=PL999DB3A38DFFEDD3 police sirens]] for another section of the game – all to contrast with the desolate, empty Baltimore devoid of all those sounds.
