Action Theme | Crime, mystery, psychological, CSI music


Thriller is a production genre of film and television that uses suspense, tension, and excitement as the main elements. The primary subgenres are mystery, crime, and psychological thrillers. This is dramatic production music for scenes depicting a crime in progress, crime planning or other mid-level action. This is not music for super intense or high-impact action, rather it is more cool in mood and execution, reflecting deliberate, methodical crime or business plans being carried out. This music is great for cop shows, crime shows, CSI, investigations, detective work, drug deals, international business, crime syndicates and similar productions.
