Today we’ve got some more amazing metal straight from A State of Sugar’s “Biscuit” album. This one comes at you courtesy of SlightlyAmiss, StealingShad3z and CyrilTheWolf. “In The Tar” is a track all about the Pony of Shadows with “as much edge as possible”. The awesome lyrics are delivered by fantastic melodic vocals which are joined by the occasional screaming, and the instrumental  switches between more acoustic arrangements and full metal beauty! This one’s a must listen for all you metalheads, but even non-metalheads will enjoy this one a lot!

Nevermourn & Whirly Tail – Celestia’s Zoo For Horses | Trance

I do love me a good trance song. Celestia’s Zoo For Horses is a collab between Nevermourn and Whirly Tail, and to say they’ve created something great would be an understatement. This track combines the best of what trance has to offer: punchy kicks, atmospheric synth riffs, a strong lead melody and even emotional piano chords. To cap it all, there’s even a short breakdown with orchestral sounds. Right after that is a variation of the heavy synth lead that starts off slow but gradually speeds up and builds back up to a heavy climax. What a banger!

Powerful Rein – The Clock is Ticking | Synth Pop

Ah, we have some very classy style to this tune today. Going on the fandom headcanon of Twilight, watching her friends aging as she doesn’t. The lyrics are full of her questioning about becoming a princess. You feel for Big Alicorn Twilight as the song’s emotion pores on the feels. However, there some artistic effects within the melodies. The sound of the clock ticks with his very classic techno-pop, and bop is charming with these melodies of stress and anxiety. The tune is catchy and done well for someone who is brand new to the music scene. Not bad for your first impression here, Powerful Rein! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

SeriousDamir – Changeling Attack | Eurobeat

Eurobeat with heavy metal mixed into it. SeriousDamir has recently been popping up in the Brony music scene, making some noise and making a few compilation albums. There is a pretty good reason why.

When you listen to this, you may just be thrown off by the righteous heavy metal guitar because you’re expecting Eurobeat! Fear not because the metal elements side right in the drop that kicks off the high-energy Eurobeat. This song is entertaining with this tale of Queen Chrysalis and her horde on the assault and will make you bounce as you this. The lyrics are hyper and tell the ponies’ story trying to endure the attack; all why doubting that the changelings would not do this is if not for Queen Chrysalis. The lyrics kind of hint at the reformed changelings, the season 6 finale to further that point. The music itself is some serious fun with how upbeat and intense the Eurobeat elements are. The metal guitar riffs always have a part in supporting the strength of this song’s composition, adding some added bang to the track. I can only hope that SeriousDamir keeps getting better, and this song is a good sign. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

P.S: He is also a pretty good artist, as he did the Queen Chrissy thumbnail. be sure to check out his DA linked in the video’s info section!

[ASOS] SlightlyAmiss & Sakairi – Days Infernal (feat. Acouste Wholenote) | Symphonic Metal


My friends, I’ve been looking forward to coving this track even since Sakairi and Amiss gave me a preview of it why working on it for ASOS: Biscuit months before the release. It is one of the most explosive, and better yet, one of the MUST listens on the album.

The track centers around Daybreaker. Celestia slowly being driven insane, inching closer to Daybreaker, calling out to her to be unleashed by the lyrics. Starlight Glimmer’s dream in “a royal problem.” only planted the seeds into Celestia’s mind. Until the day comes when she snaps, letting Daybreaker take hold of her, The lyrics tell the story of Celestia wanting to feel more than she is and not feel weak anymore; her words ring out as she targets her sister luna and her past, then turns to twilight with rage. She tells them both that Celestia’s limits will no longer bind her. The song gets intense with the minds of Daybreaker and Celestia clashing for control before Daybreaker sends Equestria into an age of hellfire and death, with Princess Luna and Twilight being her first victims.

You have to listen for yourself, but the song is only as good as say it is if not for the talent behind it. SlightlyAmiss on this album alone has stepped up his game to a whole new level. The entire package of how hardcore the metal is in this track fits the inner spirit of the story. The guitars and drums channel the brutal power of Daybreaker with the tempo on an overdrive.  There are very harmonious Orchestra elements composed by Amiss, which I didn’t know he had in him! The lyrics so well fit this story. You can step right into Celestia’s head and understand and get into this song. Well-written lyrics bring life to songs such as these, But the vocals bring that story to life. I got to tell you that if you don’t know who Sakairi is? You know now. Her singing gives the emotional energy and fire of Daybreaker telling her story. You feel the anger, rage, and lust for power through the powerful harmonies of Sakairi’s impressive singing voice. Oh and just make that sweeter? Amiss lends his rage scream vocals to harmonize with her vocals so you know Daybreakers firey rage behind Sakairi’s vocals

Didn’t I mention that she made it onto her first significant compilation album on her first try! He can feel Celestia trying to fight back and take control back and Daybreaker laughing at her just by the passion and tone of Sakairi’s voice. She has put this fandom on notice by her break-out performance, and to sweeten this more, Amiss and his pal Acouste Wholenote throw in some epic, and emotional guitar solo’s to amp the drama of this fantastic track! This track is what Symphonic Metal sounds like when done right! This track alone is worth supporting the album. Ya’ll need to keep your eyes on this group, I can promise you. It’s only the start! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself, but enjoy one of the best Daybreaker songs ever made in my book.

Chang31ing – 4DaPlot (feat. mycutiemarkisagun) (TCB Remix) | Dubstep

(Listen to the equally ridiculous original Here)


Geez, I listen to the original done by over-the-top goofballs of the brony musician community in Chang31ing and Mcmiag making this kind of over-the-top dank nonsense as I inspect them too. I wasn’t inspecting TCB, however, to not only to up the nonsense meter to past ten and make things kinkier. TCB makes a remix that will have you laughing, but you will be vibing to it. The beats are super banging with that trademark Machine gun bass drops the litter this track behind the various silly vocal chops through this track. Just listen to this track and understand that SOMEHOW TCB managed to make something danker and entertaining, don’t mind the artwork, or just ask more questions you don’t want to know, LOL. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself. Maybe really more so this time…

Koron Korak – Follow the Little Light (Album Version) | Orchestral

And so, we’ve come to the ninth and final tribute song in memory of Koron Korak’s brother, Cerebre Arkor. Follow the Little Light continues the emotional orchestral sound seen in the last few tracks of the recently released tribute album by the former. The combination of bells, pianos and violin strings really captures that feeling of longing for something or someone, a feeling that’s close to my heart. Much like the show, this ninth song in the series fits alongside the show’s ninth and also final season in its sense of closure. RIP Cerebre Arkor. No matter where you may be, you are loved.

Thrasher – breaking_point | Progressive Metal

What’s going on here?! Thrasher’s latest release is a unique mishmash of many genres, combining numerous metal subgenres with trap and EDM elements. Atmospheric guitars, trap beats, blast beats and low-tuned guitar riffs galore here, and even without vocals to help carry it, the song blends these elements together in such a brutal way that it annihilates everything in its path. You won’t regret listening to this if you love your metal unique.
