Linkin Park Promises New Album for Summer 2014

by on Feb.05, 2014, under Music News


After touring the world extensively for the past two years, since the release of their 2012 album Living Things, Linkin Park have finally announced that they are back in the studio, working hard on the follow-up.

In a recent post on his blog, band leader, Mike Shinoda fessed up that the band are happily experimenting with the sound of their new effort, which promises to be a whole different shebang than the previous LP, LT.

Not only is the new record self-produced, but it seems these California hi-tech addicts went for new directions in their approach this time, opting for plenty of fun jam sessions and even vintage methods like tape tracking.

The “bold and energetic” and  as of yet untitled album is expected to be released sometime this summer, maybe to enchant some of us festival-goers.

NikiN – Hybrid Legacy Trailer

by on Jan.31, 2014, under My Royalty Free Music

A dark, dynamic and epic sounding track, in the style of modern hybrid film scores. The track has the standard trailer length of 2 minutes and a half and contains all the dynamic changes, crescendos and buildups an epic cinematic trailer requires. It starts off with a dark pad, a subtle cool wobble bass and all sorts of electronic and orchestral atmospherics and risers, sounding eerie and horror. Things get more interesting as an intriguing harp arpeggio emerges and the atmosphere becomes even more serious. The soft sound of the harp can make the music suitable for fantasy or middle ages theme based movies or rpg games. The staccato strings offer all the thriller suspense your action packed visuals need, once they arrive around the middle, accompanied by big digital percussion and cinematic drums.

The mysterious breakdown at 1:48 confirms the SF nature of the music, as more modulated electro basses deepen the sense of urgency, before the final stage in epic suspense, when everything adds up for one final grand buildup, exploding in an ominous unnatural synth horn trailer hit. It’s music for motion picture advertising and trailers, as well as for video game trailers and production. It’s suitable for titles and endings, commercials and promos and other forms of media entertainment advertising. It would work great in shooter or adventure games, cops and terrorists plots, as well as epic final battles between Good and Evil, men and zombies and other apocalyptic face-offs.

NikiN – Poisonland

by on Apr.16, 2013, under My Royalty Free Music

NikiN-Poisonland A hybrid score track, with an eerie and uneasy sound. It’s based around some haunting guitar melodies, almost bluesy sounding, suggesting a desolate place, the middle of nowhere type of situation. A deep and dark pad creates an effective ominous feeling, a dark force lurking around the corner. Cinematic percussion, big hits and transitions as well as a hypnotic heartbeat sound further move this into science fiction territory.

This hybrid type of soundtrack oriented theme is very suitable for post-apocalyptic subjects and scenes, like the discovery of an abandoned planet or an underworld, a slow realization that the world isn’t what it used to be, after nuclear warfare or some sort of pandemic caused by a deadly virus, which most likely spawned a new species of mutant zombies (which are also vampires). The guitar theme makes this a good intro for an anti-hero, a cyberpunk or steampunk type of square jaw tough guy.
