Thunderous and epic dramatic orchestral action music with spiccato strings, deep pizzicato double bass, sweeping French horns and staccato choirs as the music builds through ascending chord sequences to a frantic climax.

Dramatic and atmospheric instrumental symphonic action music available to license for use in your films, videos, trailers and promotional material. The music is particularly suitable for use in triumphant battle scenes, feature film and sports trailers, Vimeo and Youtube videos, TV spots, commercials, stings or promos where intense dramatic orchestral action music is needed (e.g. extreme sports videos, dramatic time lapse films, war film scenes, dangerous exciting and thrilling chase scenes).
