Sinister plays during the installation of Windows 32 Doom port called Doom 95. Rather than having the MUS format as all the Doom music tracks belong to, Sinister is an external file with MIDI format located in the same folder of the installation executable. Otherwise, this song plays in the levels of the original DOS release (E2M6: Halls of the Damned and E4M7: And Hell Followed).
