"Ossuary 1 - A Beginning"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Dark, Relaxed, Calming, Eerie

At the intersection of relaxation and horror lies "The Ossuary". This piece is a slow-moving edgy drone with an ethereal melody on top. Since this is sort of a new genre, I'm not exactly sure where it is appropriate. Maybe a vampire spa? Dinner music for a psychopath? You'll figure it out!

"Rising"

Instruments: Synths, Choir, Percussion

Feel: Grooving, Intense, Suspenseful

Heavy on the percussion, this piece is dominated by the rising strings in the second minute, which quickly give way to an ethereal alto chorus. The accompaniment rises together before dissipating. Loopable.

"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.
