"Breakdown"

Instruments: Bass, Kit

Feel: Aggressive, Driving, Grooving

A rock standard drum kit kicks out a quick and steady beat. The simplicity of the music calls for simple content that is driving and powerful without being overbearing.

"Take the Lead"

Instruments: guitars, bass, kit, synths

Feel: Aggressive, Driving

This is a rough and hard-hitting piece, best used as background music to a stressful, strained scene, or tense and suspenseful content. Heavy distorted guitars begin the song, and at 0:41 the soaring synth leads play the melody while the powerful drums kick in. A high-pitched pulsating synth effect carries the last seventeen seconds to the final punch.
