Epic trailer soundtracks for your videos that are dramatic and intense.” 

Pump up your viewers with these epic, heart pounding trailer-styled background music tracks. One way to get a movie goer or gamer amped up is with stunning visuals, but coupled with the perfectly placed dramatic background music score, you are sure to keep the tension at a maximum and have them gripping their seat.

Eye For An Eye

An edgy look into what guitars can do for your next video. Hurrying straight into harmonious electric guitar, this rocks into an epic soundtrack accompanied by tantalizing tones, both complex and dramatic. Opening or ending credits would stand out strong with this track or a well-placed military style scene would be favoured with the thematic action created from the pumping guitars and dramatic strings.

Trouble Times

A soft melody of dramatic tones starts building tension immediately, leading up to multiple crashes of pulsating percussion and plucking strings. The rhythmic beats build up to a complex orchestral sequence. The drama builds throughout, making it perfect for a sequence involving a chase or a game of cat and mouse. Background music to a spy or espionage trailers perhaps?

Flight of Joy

The journey of a grand hero is represented perfectly in this track. Picture the end of Saving Private Ryan or Will Hunting meticulously solving impossible math problems on the chalkboard. A journey of positivity and hope, starting with pulsating drums then accompanied by melodious strings and piping flutes and horns. Embarking on a grand adventure feels true for a showreel, triumphant trailer or any full-length film about a tasking journey ahead.

The End Is Near

Think middle earth, following the camera into the depths of Mordor. Tension builds throughout, with an orchestral choir of deep male voices creating a sinister feel of tension and drama. Great for a fantasy or science fiction movie or short or even a trailer style commercial. An epic array of majestic voices, percussion and horns would also fit nicely in any video game sequence.

Epic Journey

Prepare yourself for the journey of a lifetime with this grand orchestral track, lead by pounding drums and topped off by a band of victorious strings, simulating a spirited march into battle. A vision of battle preparation comes to mind, with men painting their faces and packing their bags with food, supplies and weaponry. These sounds of anticipation would fit well in trailers or a movie soundtrack.

Time Running Out

There is no waiting for action here, as you are forced into a dramatic scene full of action and suspense. Majestic vocals chime in later, raising the hairs on your spine. The cries of battle are apparent, as this track would fit nicely into a spinning battle preparation sequence. This background music piece would work perfectly in a military style action scene, trailer or in a full-length feature soundtrack.

Flights of Fantasy

Chimes begin a journey into a magical world of question and wonder. Followed by a majestic build-up of euphoric strings and horns, this track would fit perfectly in a fantasy video game or movie. A light-hearted, yet triumphant look into an epic journey about to begin. It feels like Fantasia meets Jurassic Park.
