Fast paced metal song with wicked cool synths/guitar harmonics throughout...verses are open and free, building to the big heavy, in your face chorus. Picture a dozen airplanes in a dog fight, or an airstrike by the good guys, just when you think there is no hope for survival. This song would be a good sound bed for any action scene, and also for various hard hitting sports themes. Nice pace and movement...
Tense, angry, powerful intro with big guitars...open, mysterious verses with clean guitars building into heavy intro/chorus theme. The title says it all...you can feel the hero (or villain?) lying in wait, in preparation of the ultimate ambush! Possible uses, various sports themes, and film/tv cues represneting tension (being trapped, struggling to break free, wanting someone to save you), hero saving someone
Don't let the heavy intro fool you...song goes into dreamy, mysterious vibe...chorus movement is heavier with distorted guitars. Bad guy becomes good guy and goes out on a vigilante mission to atone for his sins. Possible uses - dream sequence, stream of conciousness, drifting off to sleep type of scenes, scenes shrouded in mystery, graveyard, full moon, vampires, ghosts, etc.
Highly percussive with a Bollywood flare. You can almost see the lioness stalking her prey in the jungle. Senses sharpened & hightened awareness as she gets closer to the prize. What other predators lurk?
Creepy, industrial goth type of treatment...synths, cool bass line, varied electric guitar treatments, nice steady movement. Chorus is filled with "tension". At 3:15, neat breakdown with strange, almost "spacey" vibe. You can picture walking through a graveyard, or underground cave and finding the secret passage where others did not make it out! Good for horror films, action, chase, stalking scenes, or scene where someone is building something, or a CSI is working in the forensics lab, or a cop checking out a crime scene.
Mid-tempo and heavy "paced" guitars with space in verses, leading into full chorus. Very modern/alternative treatment. This song is reminiscent of a fight scene in the style of Rocco Bonetti, the great Renaissance Italian fencing master. Song would be good for any type of action scenes, sports themes, thriller scenes, and of course a good sword fight to the death!!
Driving piece featuring electric guitar and an Egyptian vibe. Would work great in chase or escape scenes, car commercials, or military bases cues. You can almost see the air force jet flying into "crowded" air space! This song is all about action!
Elegant, classy, and energetic instrumental that builds and breaks with synths doused with reverb, a clattering of percussion, and a buzzy bass synth. Would be great for commercials selling fancy products like luxury cars, rolexes, or jewelry. Welcome to the good life!
Up tempo acoustic guitar based rock song ala Matchbox 20, Rob Thomas...lots of movement to this one. Good for travel scenes and montages. Would work for lab scenes or evidence collection in your favorite CSI shows. Also perfect for advertising campaigns...phones, retail, travel, shopping, and more!
Very fast paced, hard driving rock song with several guitar themes/movements, and intermittent breaks. You can almost picture two airplanes in an intense firefight! Good for sports, chase scenes, vampire, action, chaos, confusion, and supernatural type themes.
Running through a jungle, chased by a animal, man or perhaps even a stampede! The sounds of the jungle pulsating in the background...this composition provides the perfect backdrop for nature based shows!
Retro electric guitar based rock. Hendrix...Hendrix...Hendrix! The lead guitar feels like Jimi is playing it! Great bluesy, rockin tune perfect for anything from sports, to action/adventure films, to ad campaigns, to natural disaster documentaries. First lead is edgey...second lead section is explosive!! Rock on!!
Ideal for Nightclub scenery, a City-based chase, a back-alley brawl, or a sudden, horrific development.
The tension builds as the beat progresses, and in the heat of the moment, brings a mixture of panic, anticipation, and action to the scene.
Hard driving and fast paced...very modern and alternative. Yeah...it's okay to go fast, but kick in the NITRUS, and you fly (for a short while)!Action & chase scenes, love gone bad, bad guy stalking victim, muscle sports & fast paced sports (weight lifting, luge, downhill skiing, snowboarding, speed skating, football)
High energy, powerful, intro/choruses that would be perfect for sports...especially full contact (football, hockey) or sports with movement or element of danger (skiing, luge, speed skating). Intense and full of energy. Great for horror movies, vampires, ghosts,chase, bad guy trying to shoot good guy, and MORE!!
Feel the rush as you barrel down a mountain ski slope, cut through massive surf, lean that motorcycle hard into the trickiest of turns, or pound the half pipe into submission! Great for sports clips of all types, olympic events, chase scenes, riding down the open road in a convertible, and car commercials.
Weird, creepy, intro...wispy and erie..going into mellow arpeggio electric guitar. Mid tempo, builds to heavier guitars in chorus. Bridge at 2:15 contains "Phantom of the Opera" type organ interlude. You can feel the moonlight rising, day melting into night. Possible uses...supernatural themes, vampire, contemplation, gentle/flowing type sports with an attitude, like figure skating, gymnastics, swimming, and more!
Cool arpeggio "chorused" guitar/synth intro, verses have strange guitars bouncing back and forth...chorus has heavy, driving guitars. We've all floated in and out of that scarey dream, so glad to wake up and find it is not true. But what if the dream was peaceful and the awakening held frightening surprises. Great for sports, action, chaos, mystery and more
Strange, erie industrial goth rock...verses focus on a drum beat..then chorus hits with guitars, synths, and weird fuzzy drums. Fits any theme that is creepy or where tension is desired. Good for scenes where someone is hiding and being pursued by the creepy bad guy...they hide, bad guy stalks, and then they RUN LIKE HELL to get away from him!
Piano & cello - Erie, sad, atmospheric, gentle, dreamy, suspenseful - lovely backdrop for contemplative, sad, dream scenes...or looking out at the ocean and thinking, floating on the water, walking along the beach...or gentle, graceful sports themes (gymnastics, swimming, diving, etc.)
Feels like something bad is about to happen... like a twisted take on West Side Story gangs snapping their fingers as they walk into their meth lab to cook up their next batch. Perhaps a little Chinese water torture?
Tense, flowing mid tempo, hard grungy rock with thick, deep, sound and Godsmack esque (ala "Voodoo") drums. This one is great for the big screen. Cops, stalking, vampires, bad guys, action, adventure, dream scenes, and a great soundbed for sports!!!!
Creating a feeling, like it's the calm before or after the storm, this piece could be used to show a great time between friends coming to a close, the aftermath of a dramatic plot twist, or a high energy gathering, like a wedding reception!
An electronic groove with a walking bass introduce this Satriani-esque guitar jam. As the song progresses, the tension grows beyond containment. Could be the soundtrack for cruising around, a wild night out on the town, or a simple crime gone suddenly awry.
A seven beat looped drum pattern with bouncy bass lines, vibrating synths, and bright melodies.. The perfect track for a Sci-fi style television series such as Stranger Things. Perhaps use in a climatic part of a show and/or movie.
Soft, lonely piano ballad that builds from a gentle ballad to a Muse, Evanescense like rock song. Song kicks in with heavy drums and distorted guitar in the bridge. Has tension and would work for anything from relationship scenes, to loss, thought, travel, discovery, and more! You can feel the sadness...
Quirky guitar and piano based pop tango that should've been written by Quentin Tarantino. "Marching" drums throughout and makes you want to dance oh so mysteriously. From "Dancing With The Stars" to sports shows...has a real tension to it, so would also be great for action, adventure, travel, exploration, and a great backdrop for animal planet type of films. This one is fun and mysterious at the same time!
Electronic piece that evolves and develops. Changes feel from a slow groove, to a 1-2-1-2 polka feel, and goes back. Pensive and pondering, then excited and determined, back to thoughtful and wondrous.
