In EDM by OlexandrIgnatov kicks us off with an explosive package of synthy shredding and hard-hitting bass. This relentless tune will serve you well as a high-intensity background track.
Dirty Game Aggressive Action Big Beat by kornevmusic combines syncopated drum patterns with distorted guitar and a punchy synthesizer to create an aggressive all-around action track. The blaring background horns and industrial attitude feel like a modern EDM take on Nine Inch Nails.
Sport Action by OlexandrIgnatov reverberates its way onto our list with its dark and infectious rhythm. The electrified, sizzling bass behind the echoing snare drum is reminiscent of the soundtrack to The Matrix – perfect for imbuing your gaming videos with a moody undercurrent.
Epic by TheStoryShop starts off like a re-imagination of The Mission Impossible soundtrack, then transitions to something more akin to Hans Zimmer’s Batman theme. The track is aptly named and ideal for dramatic introductions and buildups.
Adventure Epic Cinematic by MarbleSpace is everything you’d expect from such a title, with motivating horn blares and rolling violin phrases aplenty. Viewers will expect something appropriately (or farcically) daring when this comes on, so use it wisely.
Closer to the opposite end of the energy spectrum, we have Relaxing Piano with Nature Sounds by AllenGrey. Bathe your listeners in these sentimental layers of sunlight, babbling brooks and chirping birds if you’re looking to bring the energy down a few notches.
Evolving Valley of Emotions by matsteiner is there for you when you want your video to evoke maximum feels. Harness the tinkling bells, swelling strings and ethereal chants effectively, and by the end of your no-scope montage, there won’t be a dry eye in the house.
Suspense by TheStoryShop is positively oozing with murky dread. Throw this on your stealth or horror-oriented gaming videos and your viewers will be gleefully white-knuckling it straight to subscriberdom.
Dance Power Drift by LoopsLab wastes no time with nuance, launching straight into a pounding bass line and rapid-fire synth notes. This belligerent bass-in-your-face banger will instantly let your audience know what they’re in for on your high-intensity gaming channel.
Right from the first echoing cello note, you know you’re in for a goosebump-inducing ride with Dark Sci-Fi Trailer. Author AllenGrey has managed to compose the sonic equivalent of a villain that you hate to love. Put simply, this track is Thanos, a Xenomorph from Alien, and Cthulhu all wrapped up in one terrifyingly awesome package.
