"Constancy Part Two"

Instruments: Strings, Chimes, Tympani, Flute, Bass Clarinet, Bassoon, Oboe

Feel: Dark, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful

Full of rhythmic strings and woodwinds in the lower registers, the high pitched violin that edges in and out of tune is unnerving and eerie. The pounding bass drums and church bells ring throughout, a symbol of impending doom. This music draws the line between being beautiful and frighteningly dystopian.

"For the Fallen"

Instruments: Brass, Strings, Percussion

Beginning with beautiful symphonic chords accentuated by a glockenspiel, For The Fallen builds gently and with emotion. At the mid-point, marching drums build in and the music strikes a more serious tone, retaining its dramatic passion.

"Clenched Teeth"

Instruments: Strings, Brass, Percussion

Feel: Action, Driving, Epic, Intense

Timpanis and strings battle with a snare drum and horns throughout this epic piece, slowly building and rising to chaos. The music is high-action and only includes a few short dramatic interludes.

"Nerves"

Instruments: Brass, Percussion, Strings, Synths

Feel: Action, Dark, Eerie, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful

The first two minutes contain many changes and shifts in tone - all intense. The final minute is a collection of all that came before, ending in a pulse-quickening finale. This is music for an action film, or a scene that begins with tremulous anxiety and ends in a big way.

"Mistake the Getaway"

Instruments: Brass, Strings, Kit, Percussion

Feel: Action, Driving, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful

The chase begins with horn blasts, and the kit plays a solid beat while the bass strings are a pulsing drone below the horn melody. The piece grows more tense and emotional, the strings taking the lead and rise into a flowing intensity. Danger returns in full force as the music crescendos and return for one final push.

"Devastation and Revenge"

Instruments: Synths, Percussion, Strings, Brass, Guitar, Voice

Feel: Eerie, Epic, Intense, Mystical, Somber, Suspenseful

A low hum sets a dark and mysterious mood, but at 0:49 the orchestral strings, horns, and pounding drums begin, perfect as the background to the hero?s dilemma or impending battle scene. At 2:01 the music reaches a climax and builds into discordant, terrifying suspense. The ending, at 2:35, features a lone guitar and mournful vocals, depicting a great sadness and loss.
