Brownie – Smile (Pinkie Pie Smile Metal Cover) | Metal

 

Brownie has an incredible talent for metalcore composition, and this cover of the Smile Song is a great example of his range. Starting out in more of a pop-punk style to match the lightness of the original song, Brownie transitions into metal while playing impressively technical guitar riffs over fast, moving drums. The track features a fantastic metalcore breakdown before bringing all of the styles together for the big finish. Brownie went all out to even make a music video featuring his many play-styles with great effects and humorous scenes.

Crashie Tunez – Tattered Romantics | Album | Nintendocore / Cybergrind

Expressing a personal story through music, Crashie crafted this album using his signature musical style and it’s so good to get a new release from him as part of noise.horse’s latest marathon of releases! Fast, brutal and with chiptune notes, the tracks are delivering much power! Get the full album from Bandcamp, it’s available as physical CDs too which is so awesome!

[P@D] EnsionD – Wide Skies (feat. Francis Vace) | Progressive House

EnsionD always brings something nice to the table, and this is no exception. Re-imagined from their first major hit,¬†Open Skies¬†this take on the classic has buttery smooth progression and Francis‘s signature vocals; though something I wouldn’t expect add a new perspective and life and together they form what I’d say is a very worthy take on the classic!
This track is available as part of Ponies at Dawn Enigma.

Daniel Ingram – Luna’s Future (MirroredReality Remix) | Drum & Bass / Acoustic

Luna’s Future is always a fun song to see remixed, and MirroredReality does something a little different here. Setting the scene of desolation with the wind blowing over silence, the song begins with some acoustic guitars playing a fun, yet ominous tune. However, things don’t take long to pick up as Aloma Steele’s signature vocals come in with a blast of energetic, yet not “in your face” percussion and melody, allowing you to focus more on the story and as it progressively builds and wanes, always keeping a nice balance of tension and flow. All in all, this is a nice refreshing take on one of my favourite songs in the series and I’m glad I had the chance to hear it!
