The whole Orchestral Speed Metal genre has been done to death. But you can't consider yourself a real composer if you haven't checked "Orchestral Speed Metal" off your list. Other essential genres include: Electro Emo-Pop, Motet, Disco Noise, Adult Contemporary, Tone Poem, Haircore, and Zydeco Revival.

"Shadowlands 6 - The Pit"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Eerie, Intense, Unnerving

Part alien cacophony, part organic awfulness, part six of seven. If you set this piece as music you wake up to in the morning, you're going to have a bad, bad day. There will be half remembered monsters from the times of not-asleep, not-awake... whose only jobs are to induce unexpected nausea inside government buildings.

This is an awesome theme tune. For ANYthing. You got a dark comedy about an inept biologist? This will work. A gritty fantasy dealing with fairy politics? A sci-fi dystopian future where everyone likes sardines? A reality show about bicycle thieves? A slice-of-life serial about growing up in the Upper Peninsula? Seriously. Anything.

Adventure, Ho! Last time on "Adventure, Ho!", the mage-orc Gnarlnosh was granted 1d4 wishes from a Deck of Many Things and it totally screwed up the game balance. Why? Because the DM sort of sucks, but he thought "Oh, sure - this could be fun... how could giving a mage-orc a fully provisioned army in the middle of a desert possibly sidetrack the quest for finding a cure for a magical disease that is ruining the kingdom AND the healer elf." Deck of Many Things; BAH! More like Deck of This-Campaign-Jumped-the-Shark.

Come in and listen to some high-energy Irish-like drinking music in an authentic pub! Not one of those clean American things that say they are "Irish pubs", but a proper Irish pub with tiny windows that are too high to see out of and thick dark carpeting that always smells like old beer.

Well met, traveller! Come warm by my brazier... Is that a Djinn in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? Hah! I have a joke with you! ...unless it is a djinn - then you must leave immediately! ...unless that would offend the djinn - then you must stay! ...unless the djinn is going to kill me - then you must leave immediately! ...unless it will save me from a fate worse than death - then you must stay! Oh good... it was an erection. Uncompressed download comes with a faster version.

Feel: Dark, Humorous, Suspenseful

Comedic "hard thinking" music. Chances are you won't need the entire piece if you are making a film. I made it so you can cut it up into different sounding sections of various seriousness. If you're using it for a video game, everything flows together well, or you could loop sections that work best.

Several distinct moods are found in this piece. They start at 0:00, 1:23, 2:31, and 3:10. They do all flow into each other, but can be sliced apart pretty easily. Some are quite beautiful, so stick with this piece. Excellent piece for filmmakers!
