Metal and alicorns seem to go hand and hand when the narrative is them on the verge of being consumed by the darkness inside of them and all of the magic and power corrupting them into what is deep within them. In a very aggressive and almost mythical arrangement from my Horse Music Herald teammate, SlightlyAmiss. We get inside the heads of Celestia and Luna with this explosive song of pure metal goodness. Let’s take a moment to put aside what they like in the show and even the comics and focus on what Lauren Faust said about them. They’re superpowered ponies with god-like magic to boot; they know what their true powers are and the lyrics that are sang with such power and force, oh boy, those vocal leads into those angry vocals really give you the idea of why the sisters, even after their retirement that even in the most dire and emotional vulnerable moments, still have that feeling of giving into Nightmare Moon and Daybreaker. The lyrics speak of those dark yet fully powered sides of themselves yelling the messages into their minds to remind them that if they ever get the chance, they will take over and true alicorn power will come out. The powerful heavy metal elements of those guitars (that solo, holy Celestia!), the dark and grim melodies and those drums! This is how to tell a story of struggling with your dark side. Brony metal is the best metal. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
