“Argent Energy” is the title of one of the tracks of id Software’s 2016 video game “Doom.” The name references the plot of the game, where the antagonists open the gates of Hell in hopes of harnessing its energy to solve a crisis on Earth. The result, as one might expect, is an outbreak of demons intent on causing chaos and violence. The energy of Hell had been released, but in a way far too powerful to control. The soundtrack for “Doom” is widely celebrated as perfectly encapsulating this feeling, exactly as its composer Mick Gordon had intended.
