Thank you for the top 5!
Although, I wasn't really expecting it on this song.

This song is meant to run during the menu screen of a DVD. It was originally created for a terrorist-themed movie that was going to go straight to DVD, buuuut the filmmaker never got back to me after I sent him the song. Therefore, I decided to just upload this one.

It's ambient with heavy drums and it doesn't carry too much a melody throughout, but it gives off a certain feeling of aftermath. Sort of the feeling like when everything's just happened and you begin picking things up. I dunno if that makes sense, but it's supposed to be like that.

I thought of adding more but I realized that if I did the soundscape I painted would get too cluttered. I like where this is now and I'm proud of how it turned out. Fitting for a DVD menu screen (or flash :D), I think. Also, if you like this one, you may want to check out another song of mine that's similar, "When the Smoke Clears."

Thanks in advance for any comments, please vote fairly.

Go to Rainy mood.com and listen to this. Nice btw.


I must say that i've been trying to work out a very serious flash envolving terrorists of some sorts, and a nuclear explosion happening in here in the US. I've been looking for music to put in it while I work out the story line, with your permission of coarse, I would love to use this in that flash which I'll start working on very soon


If you dont mind i used this in a Hitler project for school. This song matches so well with the pictures of the rise of the Nazis, and the deaths of the concentration camps and crying victims of his wrath. It leaves such a feeling of anguish and sorrow, but mostly a deep deathly hopelessness.


It's good. I like the overall use of sound, the strings seemed a bit too rough to me, they work either way. It would make for a good intro to a dramatic variation of a film theme.
