This is because it's programmed in GameMaker.
GameMaker (at least this version) used DirectSound to play music. In Windows 8, support for DirectSound is almost absent in favor of better, newer technologies. OpenAL, for one.

The issue is that DS on Windows 8 is that you can only play a few sounds at once. Anything more than 3-5 sounds will overload the DirectSound output and crash the game. This is why you probably have the most problems when you're making jump shots with the shotgun at point blank, or wild-spraying the flamethrower (makes a noise for every shotgun bullet/every enemy on fire).

At one point, there was a patched version of the game made by Nyo™ ~ Famega Games (https://twitter.com/famegagames). However, it looks like they've pulled the plug on it. It wasn't perfect, anyway- the audio was laggy and it still ended up crashing at times, perhaps for other reasons.

There's very little reason for Vlambeer to move a old (but amazing) game like SCB to Windows 8- with development of Nuclear Throne in full swing, I'd doubt a fix other than a downgrade to W7 for quite some time.
