Ever Wonder What A WWI ‘Drumfire’ Artillery Barrage Would’ve Sounded Like?

“This is a very light attempt at making a somewhat realistic sound effect that conveys what WWI artillery barrages sounded like. No movie (exception maybe for the attack scene from Paths of Glory), sound effect, and certainly no video game, I have ever seen comes even close to representing the fury of thousands of guns turning an area into the moon. This is what the soldiers who fought at Verdun, Ypres and the Somme had to deal with for days on end; but I think this doesn’t even come close. If it was fully realistic, you would only hear white noise, a constant crackling and rumbling that’s more like the sound of the ocean, or being inside of an erupting volcano. That is exactly how many veterans put it.”
