"Stormfront"

Instruments: Percussion, Synths

Feel: Dark, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful, Unnerving

Intense and reserved, this unrelenting piece of drumming will be well at home in the soundtrack of your summer blockbuster. Super long for splicing.

"Simplex"

Instruments: Percussion, Synth, Guitar

Feel: Dark, Suspenseful, Unnerving

Thin, dark, moody piece that accelerates to the end. Remarkably metered and free at the same time. Guitar is all half muted.

"Club Diver"

Instruments: Synths, Percussion, Kit

Feel: Aggressive, Dark, Driving, Grooving, Intense, Unnerving

Almost like euro club meets industrial vampires. I don't think I've ever done anything similar to this from the percussion side... or with those diving chord things.

"Bet You Can ver 2"

Instruments: Guitar, Bass, Kit

Feel: Aggressive, Dark, Driving, Intense

Making a musical mockery using the melody from schoolyard taunts. This pieces rawks out. Nigh inhuman drumming in this. This is the faster of a set of 2 pieces with the same content.

"Peaceful Desolation"

Instruments: Brass, Tympani, Glock, Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, Strings

Feel: Calming, Relaxed, Somber, Uplifting

Low-key mood establisher with chords moving in parallel blocks for the melody. Starts dark, ends open and airy.

"Deep Haze"

Instruments: percussion, guitar, synths

Feel: Action, Driving, Grooving

A lighter piece than the descriptors would imply. It is more hollow than dark, more motion-forward than driving. Builds continuously but slowly.

"Oppressive Gloom"

Instruments: Strings, Bass Clarinet, Percussion

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Epic, Mysterious, Somber, Suspenseful

Moody moody dark score. Almost a death march. Loops pretty darned well - but you need to trim the end.

"Crusade"

Instruments: French Horns, Trombones, Percussion, Trumpets

Feel: Dark, Epic, Somber, Suspenseful

Written as travelling music for a video game... this is probably a bit too active for that. There is a beautiful choral section in the trombones at 2:18. Good anvils.

Superlatives abound in this giant orchestral/industrial piece. To be played loud. From the original soundtrack to "The Last Stand of the Mechanolith".

"Unlight"

Instruments: Basses, Cellos, Violins, Trombone, French Horn, Trumpets, Flutes, Clarinets, Percussion

Feel: Aggressive, Dark, Eerie, Epic, Intense, Unnerving

This piece is actively painful. It is ugly and nasty and dirty - about as much as you can be using exactly one orchestra. Seriously, there are occasional bits where there are notes - but mostly, it is just... uhh...
