Hellfire is an expansion pack for Diablo (W32). It adds a new class (the monk), two new dungeons (the Festering Nest and Demon Crypt), and an assortment of new monsters, spells, and items. The story involves a sorcerer who accidentally summons the demon Na-Krul whose denizens wreak additional havoc on the town of Tristram.
Each of the two new dungeons gets their own ambient background music. Matt Uelmen explained that he originally composed the two tracks for Diablo, but didn't feel they were good enough for the game so they were left out. However, they were salvaged from the cutting room floor to be used in Hellfire. Uelmen explains:
Uelmen also notes that the Hellfire developers (most likely Craig Utterback) made slight additions to the intro of the tracks, (like the buzzing at the beginning of the Hive track).
