Royalty Free Album - Rock FestivalJuly 16, 2012 Smartsound’s new release Rock Festival pays homage to the hard-driving rock and heavy metal bands of the '70's and '80's, with live recordings from multiple artists, many of which are old enough to have been hands-on participants then!
Five of the ten tracks on this album are from Eighties rocker Jordan Tarlow (Fuzztones.) Take your travel or action footage into overdrive with fierce, punchy Electric Overload and Thick or Thin, featuring blazing drum beat and rock style electric guitar. Works well with scenes of speed or intense fighting.
The other three showcase the slow, sinister sides of hard rock. Evil looks inevitable with fierce Lethargic Rock, primed for a showdown scene. Wah leads and Rock/Pop Band harmonies slow down Scream In The Dark, dragging out the villainous mood. The River winds through mischievous on-screen action—it sucks you in and won’t let go.
A true cosmopolitan, Lionel Ziblat was born in Buenos Aires, grew up in Israel, and now lives in The Netherlands. His mother was a classically-educated pianist and his father was a member of 'Los Jets', an Argentinean rock' n' roll band from the Sixties. He grew up loving both hooks, and though he has composed for the likes of the Dutch Ballet Orchestra, driving Physical definitely gives the nod to the rock side of his heritage. Chugging guitars and an ever-rising melody motivate intense physical confrontation in this heavy metal style track perfect for a fight scene in home Video, Sports and Action-Drama footage.
Make it fun, fast, and lively with Rock the Party, from TV and movie composer Yariv Vaknin --complete with club-style drum beat to liven up a party scene or end credits. Ron Komie, who also contributed to another Smartsound release Classic Rock and Roll, punched in with Cruzin' Away for this one. Bring on its bass, drums and rhythmic guitar riffs for montages or scene changes. It travels!
I just went to my high school reunion, and if I’d known Phil Symonds' Say It Again would take me back, I could have saved some gas. Enjoy this straightforward rock tune, and score it for chase or drag-Main scenes.
Rock Festival reminds us of all we loves about '70's and '80's music, action-packed, or slow and intense, and chock full of guitars, drums and bass—perfect for road trips, sports and action scenes of all kinds. Use it to liven up all your fun, free-wheelin' projects.
