Action Movie Music: Shinedown – Diamond Eyes (Boom-Lay Boom-Lay Boom) – The Expendables

I think this is one of the best action movie tunes of all time; it’s just full of testosterone and totally matches the kick ass tone of The Expendables movie. It’s a shame the second movie didn’t have any memo...

Action Movie Music: NEST from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

No matter what you think of the movies, no one can tell me that the music isn’t fantastic. Steve Jablonsky creates an exciting and tuneful score and this is one of my favourite tracks from the Trilogy. It’s also got...

The Violence Suppressor by Irving Force

I’ve always been a massive fan of 80’s style electronica/synthesizer music; I think it must stem from being a huge John Carpenter fan. Swedish musician Adam Skog/Irving Force has just released his second EP and alth...

Action Movie Music: Predator (1987) Main Theme

We all know Predator starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is a stone cold classic, but not just from an action standpoint. Yes, we have Arnie and crew going toe to toe with the coolest alien in cinema history, but we also get Alan Si...
