Remember The King Is Back from Vylet, the track with those incredible sassy vocals by Namii? Well time to get blown away all over again, by Blackened Blue this time who gives a whole new Metal spin to the track! With heavy riffs and fast drums, as well as several kind of vocals all very rocking, this cover is a real gem and Blackened Blue did so amazing!
Continuing the trend of associating beach/island areas in games with Bossa Nova-like BGM with much love, John Doe impresses once more with a crafty field theme for the latest update of fan game Pony Town! Just the perfect atmosphere for chilling at a tropical beach, with lots of ponies around!
Another very emotional recent release, this tribute to the Hippogriffs from Miles Kintner is of pure beauty, with a truly magical composition that makes for a lot of emotion. The second half of the track in particular is my favorite and was so powerful for me! And focusing on how this is all depicting the story of the Hippogriffs, makes it even more impactful and special!
Paving a stairway to pony Heaven with Flutterchops and letting sparkles of magical light fall down all around you with that crystal-y piano… This is the kind of scene that Cynifree’s latest masterpiece is evoking me, and I hope that you’ll like it as much as I did. With the deep bass to lift you to higher planes and the halftime DnB beats taking you by surprise, there is a lot to appreciate in Endless Ages, a track full of magic!
Crusader is back again with another vocal delight! Big Mac has always had a special place in our hearts in this fandom. Crusader’s voice just gives this song some extra flavor to such a sweet song. I say this because the lyrics tell Big Mac’s throughs and emotions pretty well from Brotherhood Social. Feeling like you can’t fill those shoes anymore for your little sister. When you know that Applejack has done so much more then you have. To have doubt that you don’t matter anymore. Crusader’s voice and acoustics tell that story in such an uplifting way. I’m glad someone made a song about this special moment. We all would like a big brother like Big Mac. His efforts, His hard work. His Love for his family. Doing crazy wacky shenanigans. All to show AppleBloom that he still can be there for her. Much like my buddy LuckRock. Crusaders songwriting is his greatest strength. It shows. Its a heartfelt catchy tune your be humming to yourself. As I always say. This Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
Instrumentals are wonderful pieces of music. They are pieces of music you don’t have to use lyrics to tell your story, your message, or the emotion you’re trying to emote. For this it’s emotion. Especially if you love a certain sky blue pegasus. Rainbow Dash is a character that inspires people like myself who have had issues believing in themselves. This music by Jyc Row lights a fire inside of you when you been beaten down and dragged through the mud by life. It starts much like that. Then the Melody grows and builds into this mightly theme that screams confidence. For myself, I picture my growth as a person, brony and a fighter. I picture RD landing next to me, Inspiring me like she does, to get up and don’t quit! The song makes you feel like she is there with you, Telling you that you can win!. You find yourself finding a way to overcome the odds! Not bad for making this in an hour or less Jyc Row. This song much like Dashie’s song in the MLP movie, Makes you inspired for greatness. As I always end this. This Qilin asks you for you to judge for yourself.
Koron always has an interesting track to bring to the table and City Sky Lines is no exception! It breathes an authentic early 90s cyberpunk arcade game from its fast pace, gritty analog basslines and leads and the visuals are spot on as well! While fairly repetitive (as is the nature of such opening themes) there is enough changes and progression going on throughout to be engaging an interesting and I really have to appreciate what they went for with this piece!

It’s an honor to do these promotions for fellow colleagues of Horse Music Herald. MC-Arch’s music is not simply Hip-Hop. The man has a set of pipe and very much invokes the pure emotion of love in this wonderful ballad. He’s no alone as SoftieShy joins in this duet. The love for someone you care about, How it can you through the lowest points of life and gives you SOMETHING to hang onto. It’s wonderful. I don’t think a lot of bronies think that deeply into it at first until you know it’s there, This show gave people something to build on. Friendship is Magic is a building block to work with. With that building block can make a lot of wonderful things happen. Like finding love. This song so much points out what love can build into. Arch and SoftieShy words are so beautiful on touching into that. Folks honesty keep an eye on MC-Arch, I and my other colleagues love him for a reason. This Qilin knows this to be true without any doubt.
Rainbow Factory and Awoken! A pair of songs that are a legend in their own rights. Songs that helped start the trend of grimdark storytelling within the MLP fandom. Nearly 8 years after the release of Rainbow Factory. Koa comes out with the 3rd song of this Unholy Trinity. I am not sure how you can put such disturbing feelings into the lyrics and yey have the emotion of Pop/dubstep song that you can dance too. Spiritual successor? yes. Continuity? yes. Chilling, very much. Now BronyDanceParty needs to make a video to this song! As always, This Qilin asked you to judge for yourself.
Mad Mars is back, and with an awesome tribute to BronyCon! So lovely seeing more pony musicians surface to gather once more as fans. This new community parody of Stacey’s Mom sure is doing wonders at bringing those uplifting and nostalgic vibes, and this rocking treat full of feelings is very appreciated!
