"Clash Defiant"

Instruments: Basses, Cellos, War Horn, Brass, Percussion, Choir

Feel: Aggressive, Driving, Dark, Suspenseful

You want battle music? You can't HANDLE the battle music! Meh. You probably can. As battle music goes, this is pretty tame - no blaring trumpets or hyperactive xylophones... Why? Dialog! You can actually talk over this battle music! Feel free to punctuate with your own stabs after you cut around your dialog. Or don't. You can use this as a loop on your Twitch stream for anything... battle-y. That rough spiccato bass line is off the hook! (Do people still say "off the hook"? I might be a few years late on that.) You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

"Heavy Heart"

Instruments: Lute, Cellos, Basses, Penny Whistle

Feel: Dark, Somber, Mystical

We've all been there. It is a little sad, a little hopeful... like when you finally set your rescue owl back into the world. You're sad to see her go, but you hope for the best. You've done all you can inside... her wings work pretty well now, and she can snatch the mice from your living room floor even when you put in a bunch of fake plants in the way to give the prey cover. Nothing to do now but hope Blossom can rule the night as you hoped she one day would. Also... time to buy a bunch of mousetraps. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

"Final Battle of the Dark Wizards"

Instruments: Synths, Choir, Percussion, French Horns, Trumpets, Violas

Feel: Dark, Intense, Unnerving, Epic, Mystical

Slowly building tension power that really gets going when the super gnarly drums kick in after the violas... sort of in the section with the trumpet.... then there's this part that's all like "AHHHH AHHHHHH AAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!" And then there's some more "AHHHHHHHHH" and then even more and its like a new key or something, and the drums are all distorted and slammin', and then there's this wwwwwwhhhhHHHHHOOOOOOOSHHHH!!!! and some more french horn majesty - and like another keychange or something... but definitely some bass drum. The big bass drum that you stand up and hit with a mallet... not the kind you stick on the floor... and stomp on a pedal that is attached to a mallet that hits the floor drum.

"Baba Yaga"

Instruments: Percussion, Synths, Piano, Voice

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Mystical

A little smooth, a little edgy, this has some wicked percussion in it. I forget how many drums there are in this - but it is quite a lot. Doesn't overpower, though. This one could also be considered 140 beats per minute, depending on how you count. It is right in that grey area. And no, I don't know what the words mean... I'm not even certain of the language, or if it is a language. The uncompressed download comes with an extra No Vocals Mix. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

"Fretless"

Instruments: Guitar, Ukulele, Drums, Bass, Glockenspiel, Music Box

Feel: Bright, Relaxed, Uplifting

Nice, forward-pulling piece pretty much guaranteed to offend no one. This piece is a little more complex than others in this genre because of the multiple countermelodies. They clear out many times, and make room before coming back in. You can make your own mixes with the uncompressed downloads to only include the melodies you want if you like!

Welcome to HorrorLand! Please keep all arms, legs, and eyestalks inside the vehicle at all times. All exits are clearly marked. There are no exits. Do not attempt to leave HorrorLand. This will end badly for everyone. Please note: it will end badly if you do not attempt to leave as well. So, it is really up to you. Feel free to split up your group and explore. That is always a great idea! You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

"The Show Must Be Go"

Instruments: Bass, Guitar, Diddley Bow, Clarinet, Trumpet, Vibraphone, Horns, Kit, Percussion

Feel: Bouncy, Humorous

Sort of inspired by the 1930s, and sort of inspired by all-out weird. Definitely recommend taking a listen to this piece. Make sure you get to the 1 minute mark... fun times trumpet playing await! I personally enjoy how the clarinet play tries to follow the trumpet player - doesn't work out so well. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

So this one sounds like what is sounds like. The high quality download has a few bonus mixes. The Tin Mix is excellent for small speakers. The Phased Mix is like... sort of groovy, man. The 90 mix is a bit faster. And the House Mix is super dance party fun times! You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

"Crowd Hammer"

Instruments: Guitar, Percussion, Diddley Bow, Flute, Oboe

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Relaxed

Originally written as an establishing shot for a psychological thriller. This has a very earthy/folky feel about it. Little slow, little edgy... I don't know. Take a listen. I mean, I'll keep trying to describe this but, I'm not doing too well here. There's this flute thing... uhh... Slightly creepy movie score? Yet oddly comforting? Sure. Let's go with that.

Feel: Eerie, Mysterious, Somber, Dark

This has a little bit of early music flair to it with a nice vocal performance (if you don't like the vocals, you can get a version without in the super download). I've listened to this piece non-stop for like an hour. Still beautiful! The least you could do is listen to this once! It is only a few minutes. Go ahead!
