"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.

"The House of Leaves"

Instruments: Harp, Violins, Percussion, Synths

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Intense, Suspenseful, Unnerving

A simple harp refrain plays a child?s melody, but is torn apart by discordant screeching noises, thumps, growls, and mechanical noises.

"Redletter"

Instruments: Strings, Synths

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Intense, Suspenseful, Unnerving

High-pitched strings play above a low drone, while fuzzy noises and cymbal rolls flow throughout. The high strings crescendo and quickly cut out as if a knife sliced their throats. A somber melody plays in the final minute, and the noises crescendo and come at you from every angle, symbolic of an attack and a gruesome finale.

"Ibn Al-Noor"

Instruments: Plucked strings, Bow strings, Percussion

Feel: Action, Eerie, Suspenseful

Evocative of the Arab world, the music begins stoically; the melody accentuated by simple percussive sounds. Within the first minute, the strings hypnotize with their sinuous melody, the tribal drumming awakening the senses. In the third minute the piece changes to a heavy, dangerous string and tribal drumming that builds until all of the instruments come together in a fitful way, until the abrupt ending.

"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.

Is she a mer-maid, or is she an illusion! Her enchanting voice will entice, and she is 100% alive! Keep your wits about you, gentlemen - you don't want to be dragged to an unfortunate end. Very heavy on bass.
