Heavy alt-rock meets the synth soundtrack to your favorite action movie in the lyrically-dark "Ballad of Annie." The story of a physically abusive struggle is sung with haunting vocals and accompanied by a clever hybrid of synthesizers and real instruments.
Hendrix type guitar licks layered on top of dark vocals - desperate, dreary, sad, suicidal "you will notice me" type of concept. Nirvana meets Hendrix. The guitar parts alone would make a great soundbed as well
A driving rhythm song for the inner rockstar couple at heart. The speaker has this girl on their mind and can't seem to get her out even if they tried. With a reference to mind control, the infatuation felt by the speaker is very intense.
Industrial and electronic. Very catchy rhythms and a dangerous vibe. "I keep falling down...but I keep on climbing". Song is about not giving up. Perfect for club scenes, party scenes, or perhaps something more daring like drag races or a fight scene.
A syncopated percussion pattern sets the mood as menacing chords begin to poke through. Eventually things really take off as an aggressive and swift strumming pattern emerges, and Mr. Hyde is off on his quest for revenge!
Electronica-inspired dark pop with female lead. Features a steady "four on the floor" pulse with simple harmonic progressions, sweeping synth leads, tribal-esque auxilliary percussion patterns, and cinematic sound effects at transition points. Note: Outro after guitar solo includes a spoken word section to conclude the narrative.
The eerie compressed keyboard serves as the perfect introduction to this story that almost sounds like a more somber version of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds by the Beatles. Perfect for an angsty and confused character that is trying to find their way in the world or through a lucid dream.
Classic heavy metal song about revenge. Uptempo, aggressive music similar to Iron Maiden, Queensryche and Judas Priest. Virtuoso guitars, vocals in the stratosphere, and a rhythm section that sounds like bombs hitting the ground with unrivaled force!
Opens like an old time Clint Eastwood western, then directly into driving guitars and desperate vocals. Tortured soul drowning in the flood of life - underlying reference to insanity and depression. Pearl Jam "esque" vocals. 4 minute mark changes into a Hendrix type guitar interlude - good for chase scenes, suicidal thoughts, insanity, hiding out, and any good vs. evil struggle.
Tribal, Native American music with lyrics about living large and making the most of life. Would be great for any scenes that depict characters out of their element, finding themselves in new environments.
