The Belarussian artist and a hot name in the brony metal music scene SDreamExplorerS, also known as Soul Strings, bring us an album that is mostly inspired by the Swedish Death Metal movement.
The artist on the album description on YouTube says that Swedish Death Metal (Melodic especially) has inspired him to do this album, especially “The Jester Race” by In Flames. As a metal listener, I certainly could hear the “In Flames” influence on this album, particularly on the track “The First Alicorn” that is available on video. This album has incredible riffs, good percussions and great production quality – one of the great qualities I’ve ever listened on the Soul Strings’ discography. The mix between the well performed screams and the low pitched clean vocals are the best part of the album, you will love it. If you are into old-school In Flames, At The Gates, Amon Amarth or Children of Bodom you will certainly like this album! My Little Pony and Old-School Swedish Death Metal – a great mixture of textures and sounds that Soul Strings will give you if you listen to this masterpiece!
