Victory March
Composer Bobby Prince
Released 1992-05-05
Title Origin File Name
Loops Yes
This page is for the Wolfenstein 3D song, for more titles see Victory.

Victory March is one of the four unused songs in Wolfenstein 3D (DOS). It is a full-length track, probably meant for mission music.

John Romero said that there wasn't a particular reason why this song was excluded from the game. However, if you look how the music is utilized, each background song is used in four times--only the secret levels don't follow this pattern. This track could have been written to fill one of the secret levels that used repeated music, but was just never assigned.

Like the others, this track is left unused in GBA version. Interestingly, they decided to port the tune left unused in original version, but also scrapped it.

Possibly it was meant for level BGM, because the Game Boy Advance port lost some actual level tracks. Maybe, they wanted to replace one of them with Victory March.

The conversion is slighty faster than MS-DOS version.

Finally, this song makes an appeareance in the arcade game "Wolfstone 3D", which parodize Wolfenstein 3D and can be found duing the actual gameplay of the "New Colosus". It is heard on the boss levels E1M9 and E2M9, replacing The March to War.

This track was just rendered from AdLib MS-DOS original version, so the only difference is the PCM output.
