Back For More Stock Music: Part 2

The second half of our latest song batch strays from scary, dark soundtracks to more experimental and abstract tunes, drawing inspiration from several other genres.

Automated Security is sparse and slow-paced, with the echoing textures of the main synth bass and drum machine filling the empty space. A glitchy, chopped dial-up sound in the background keeps the rhythm moving forward. A stealthy tune for your sneakiest cybernetic soldier.

Hazmat Failure is a trap-influenced, heavily textured track with a variety of interesting percussion and rhythmic elements filling out the background. The main melody is just two eerie notes, generated by a classic analog synth. Fun fact: One of the main percussion sounds is a heavily processed jaw harp, listen closely for its signature tone.

In Thinking Games, the main piano was recorded with its strings underwater (essentially turning the piano into a miniature pool), and the drums are a hybrid of live drum sounds and an old-school analog drum machine. A synth piano and clean electric bass make up the rest of the band. All of this culminates in a simple, fun track that slowly evolves over time while still keeping the same lighthearted, laid-back energy.

Saving the best for last, we've got Deep Sea Oasis. It's got retro pianos and strings, a funky bassline, smooth and ethereal synth pads behind an immaculate old-school hip-hop beat. If you're going to only give one of these songs a listen, we strongly recommend you check this one out. Words alone can't describe how much of a joy it is to experience this track. This tune is one of our composer's favorites out of the entire catalog.

Back For More Stock Music!

Abstract Man
We've added even more new royalty-free music to our catalog since our last update! So many, in fact, that we're going to split this update into two posts. Today's theme: cinematic and dark.

Behold, Cognition Hazard. This track is rather simple melodically (making it easy to fit into the context of any project), but filled with interesting atmosphere and textures. The song becomes more intense over time, going from a dirty drum beat, 808 bass and string ensemble to a full composition with an echoing synth melody, fingerstyle electric bass and haunting choir. Jam out with caution.

Now, picture this. Out in the arctic wastes, after weeks of searching, your team finally finds the lost research station, half buried beneath snow and ice. After making your way into the station, you discover what remains of your colleagues and their research. It got out. Fetid Martyr is an ambient wonder that slowly melts into a dissonant, disturbing landscape of fear.

Stepping back from horror, listen in to Tensor Core. Tense, dark and stealthy, with a mixture of organic and synthesized percussion underscoring the flute melody and low synth bass. A soundtrack fit to score your intrusion into a secret military base. If you enjoyed the sound of Tenet, this song is for you.

Eerie woodwinds, frame drum percussion and a choppy synth bass make up our final track of this post, Squad Deployed. This one brings the energy up further, progressing into a distorted metal bass and crunchy acoustic drum kit to drive the rhythm further. No more sneaking around solo, take a fireteam in and clear out all enemy forces.
