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.
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.
Slow, brooding. This very uncomfortable piece slowly raises the tension until eventually you feel that something horrifying has arrived! Good for scenes with monsters unleashing their fury or perhaps to build up to something very evil occurring/arriving
Etherial, haunting, Pink Floyd-esque song with echoing vocals, pulsating piano, droning strings, and an emotive, crying electric guitar providing the backdrop for thought provoking lyrics about courage, spirituality, and believing that even in the darkest of times, we are not alone . . .
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!!
Steady, lagging, song about a psychopath, someone who is mentally unstable, dysfunctional mind...underlying "voices in your head" throughout track and insane guitar solo- Good to describe a demented villain
Tension filled song with a spacey vibe that starts off with a lone marimba, sparse acoustic guitar, and a barely audible perculating synthesizer that gradually grows in volume and ferocity until it feels like the mother ship is about to land right next to you! Strong and courageous, with determination...Lyrically focused on rebirth from darkness into the light.
Starts off with what sounds like a tense standoff just before exploding into violent turmoil! Features mostly orchestration and is the perfect soundtrack to build suspense before an exciting action scene!
Guns N Roses style hard rock music that features killer guitar playing and a high energy groove! Could work in action scenes, sports recaps, bar room scenes or anything that needs some good old fashioned rock and roll!
Beginning with a lone piano, this song quickly hightens as steady bass grooves are woven together with intricate electric guitar licks and synthesizers added in for good measure! Lyrically intriguing, the alt rock composition (in the style of "Muse") is about the universal struggle to become the good that the world needs. "Looking for my HALO . . . swimming in fire rings, as I try to earn my wings . . . "
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.
Mellow finger-style guitar treatment, gives the impression of someone travelling in the country. Gives off the feeling of someone going away from home for a long time. Good for open road cross country driving scenes.
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.
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!!
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!
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!
Aggressive hard rock / punk song with abstract stream of consciousness lyrics and dissonant lead guitars. Good for any scene requiring music to take it up a notch. For example: burglars making their get-a-away; soldiers initiating battle; football team blitzing the quarterback.
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.
Heavy alternative rock music with an electronic feel. Somewhat silly, yet surreal, lyrics that evoke imagery of a person's death and/or destruction. Features guitar solos, vocal harmonies, and a vocoder.
