'Emotion' is probably one of the first words that comes to mind when you think about a dramatic movie. And with good reason: dramatic movies are filled with a wide range of deep moods.The point about them is to tell a story that makes the audience feel those complex emotions.
However, to guarantee that your audience will receive your message appropriately, you need a musical score that carries out that same emotion.
To make searching for those heartstrings-tugging musical pieces easier on you, I've gathered the best dramatic royalty-free music tracks that AudioJungle has available in its library.
In this first royalty-free music track, a very nostalgic piano and strings start an increasingly powerful piece that evolves into a very inspiring, positive and uplifting song.
To add power and an epic quality to your multimedia projects, try this orchestral arrangement that includes background vocals, a relentless piano and thunderous sounds.
Dramatic audiovisual pieces dabble into the suspenseful, mysterious and outright creepy. Make sure your audience gets that with this aptly titled 'Dark Matters' track.
Inspired by the great film score composers of our time (Hans Zimmer, Thomas Bergersen, and more), this track carries a beautifully emotional sentiment on its wings.
Imagine a camera soaring over an army of medieval soldiers ready to defend their territory. This royalty-free piece would go perfectly with that deeply tense and emotional scene.
'Echoes of Pandora' has a pretty epic name that lives up to the pretty epic song it is. As you would expect, it has some instrumental arrangements that tug at the heartstrings.

This tune is the ideal score for a climactic and powerful scene. For example, I imagine this track would work nicely in a battle scene for an action-packed superhero movie.
