The composer credits are taken directly from the ingame credits and from the game manual. Both list Allister Brimble as a loading music composer. Although Allister did compose one piece for this game, it was not used.

The unused section is all the music from the 1991 rolling demo.

Also included are two original tunes, one unused, direct from Tim Wright, who says, "Although I did write Beast II first, Agony was released first. So this was my 'maiden voyage' into published works, back in good old 1992."

With regards to 'mod.agony intro' in the 'Direct_from_Composer' folder, Tim states that, "Interestingly, the version of the intro theme I've got here is the original version. 'What?' - yep, this is the original tune with the original samples. Y'see, when I sent the tune off for inclusion in the game a chap [Franck Sauer] changed the piano sounds for better ones. However one of them was at the wrong octave - I didn't find out until it hit the shelves, so it's always sounded wrong to me. Here's the real version."

On a final note, Tim goes on to say, "If you'd like to hear a cover version of the ['incorrect'] Agony Intro theme, then get hold of a copy of Stormblast (1996) by Dimmu Borgir. There's a track on there called "Sorgens Kammer" and it's a blatant rip-off of my music. I have contacted them, but they just give me excuses, and it's not worth suing them for the pennies I'd get back - oh well, life sucks!"
