Elias Frost – We Will Stand For Everfree (Cover) | Metal

There don’t seem to be as many songs related to the latest Equestria Girls movie yet, but luckily Elias Frost is here to put his own nordic metal spin onto things. (And if you stick around to the end you’ll hear a little surprise reprise)


Progressive Element – Undead Sugar Ponies | Bass House

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 29 October 2016.

One of my favourite tracks from Progressive Element is his bassline masterpiece Undead Ponies, so it’s pretty awesome to see him take that style and give it a different kind of spin! With a lot more of a bass house spin to it, this track bounces around and hits hard, whilst making great use of vocal samples from the cookie zombie episode. If you want some groovy zombie-filled bass house, make sure to check this out!


Frozen Night – Fragile Existence | Orchestral Metal

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 28 October 2016.

Frozen Night is back again with another remake of one of their older pieces, Fragile Existence. With a beautiful little piano and strings build up, epic drums start to hit 2 minutes in, instantly raising the impetus of the track. The rest of the instrumental also becomes a lot more epic, and the introduction of guitar helps to really complete the piece. If you want some epic orchestral metal, make sure to check this out!


Suskii – Black Magic | Dubstep

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 27 October 2016.

When I first heard this track I was floored. Suskii’s pretty great with dubstep sounds, but I didn’t know they were this good! A track based on Trixie’s use of the alicorn amulet, there’s a pretty solid build up here with a cool sounding lead synth, but it’s when the drop comes in that the track really shines. Some heavy, powerful and exceptionally clean sound design helps to make this track well worth checking out!


Daniel Ingram – I’ve Got To Find A Way (Cuberoot Remix) | House

A new player has entered the game! Cuberoot has some previous experience making music, but this is their first pony related track to date. And what better way to give it a shot than remixing a show song? Take a listen for a smooth, chill house take on Find A Way.


StrachAttack – Nightmare VIP | Electro

S P O O P Y   M U S I C   T I M E ! The original version of this was released in October 2014, and it’s been rebooted just in time for Nightmare Night 2016. It follows that sort of electro / glitch-hop crossover that I’ve seen only a few other times recently, a really cool sound, and it shows just how far Strach has come since this time 2 years ago!
