"Failing Defense"

Instruments: Brass, Percussion, Xylophone, Strings

Feel: Action, Aggressive, Intense, Suspenseful

This piece begins immediately with horn blasts, strings, and a bone-jangling xylophone. After the brief intro the horns play a melody, then the horns drop away away except tribal drums and staccato string bursts. The music returns in a big way, suggestive of a tense battle, as the instruments compete against each other, until the rapid discordant end.

"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.
