We recently chatted with Composer Sascha Dikiciyan also known as Sonic Mayhem about his incredible career in video game music composition for such titles as Quake II, TRON: Evolution, Borderlands, Mass Effect 3 and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

Sascha also recently released an original album titled, Doomsday featuring songs such as “Genesis”, “Futureland” (which features Power Glove), “Bleed Forever” (featuring Malukah), and more. There’s also an appearance by electronic rock artist Blue Stahli on the album.

Sascha's work came to prominence when he sent a copy of his first CD "Methods of Destruction", an alternate Quake soundtrack, to id Software in 1996. As a result, they asked him personally to score the soundtrack for Quake II.
