Catching The Killer M3   full length track

Orchestral instruments, electric guitar, with synth percussion and sfx create a tense and dramatic music bed, designed for a television forensic or investigative drama ala CSI, Criminal Minds, or Bones. Third cue in the series, suited to discovering bodies or the killer's lair; more ambient than rhythmic. Dark and chilling.
