Metajoker – Better Off (feat. GatoPaint) | Alternative Metal / Post-Grunge

With a emotional and nostalgic feeling, Metajoker with help of GatoPaint created Better Off! The new hot tune of the month! Really nice warm and ethereal vibes coming from the track, well we really are on Autumn!

The guitar riffs are really well performed along with the piano chords, Metajoker and GatoPaint did a really awesome job in this! The mix between the two along with awesome drumming, nice control of reverb and mixing, great production qualities, and an awesome vocal performed by the 2 artists singing really deep and emotional lyrics with a nostalgic and warm instrumental made this track a really nice Autumn song for headbang all night long or doing your morning walk! Both artists did an awesome job and reminded me of acts such Breaking Benjamin, Bush and Hurt! Metajoker is an awesome pianist and vocalist and GatoPaint is an awesome guitarist and vocalist! Keep up the awesome work!

Crystal Slave – Daring Doom | Electro

Crystal Slave’s been trying out some new styles lately, and it’s come out really nice in their new song. A little bit harder than their normal stuff, this still has amazing atmosphere in between the drop sections with amazing foley and some nice piano. Speaking of drops, the sinister synthlines in these are just amazing. Well done Crystal Slave, keep experimenting!

Soren Ember – Through Your Heart | Acoustic

What’s it like to love the immortal? Well, Soren Ember tells us what it’s like in his new song. Although we may pass, our love lives on. I love the cajon in this song, it’s not an instrument you hear often in horse music, so it’s refreshing to have in this song. The guitar playing is very calming, and Soren’s voice just makes me want to sing along. Well done Soren, this is a beautiful song.

Inkwel – Tank | Chill

Inkwel continues writing songs for the Mane 6’s pets with this one about Tank. A chill atmosphere really aligns with Tank’s personality, while the strong bassline shows how much of a strong support he is for Rainbow Dash. This song is really fitting for it’s subject, keeping in line with the show. The cute synthlines complete the song and make it a very enjoyable experience.

Elias Frost – Rockhoof Tale | Celtic Folk / Orchestral

Inspired by the first tale from Campfire Tales, Elias Frost brings an awesome track with Celtic/Nordic influences. Rockhoof was one of my fav stories and I see this song as a soundtrack for the tale of Rockhoof. Pony Vikings and Celtic Orchestral are awesome together! Some elements from the song also amazed me, such the vocals and the acoustic guitar riffs. The drums’ celtic-nordic feeling was also fantastic! Elias Frost, you do awesome job in your compositions and tracks, keep up the good work!

Luck Rock – Orchard in the Sky | Soft Rock

Inspired by The Perfect Pear, Luck Rock sings an amazing ballad about Big Mac and Sugar Belle. With some outstanding acoustic guitar and strings backing up his amazing singing, one can really feel the love being shown in Luck Rock’s song. I especially love the choruses, the lyrics are just so beautiful that it’s chilling, and the backing vocals in the final chorus are superb. Well done Luck Rock!
