If music that screams grimdark is more your style, then come on in! AnimatronicPony gives shy and timid Fluttershy the possessed and psychopath flavor for track 17 of Pinkamena Party 8. Oh dear! You’ve walked right into a party where it sounds like Fluttershy wants a little bit more than just your company, and she invites you to come out to her shed. The deep and haunting bass, the unsettling hard synths and that pounding harmonic bassline all give this track the aggressive taste it has. Sure makes ya think about what you just walked into and how to GET OUT! The video that comes with this track makes that point pretty clear. Flutters is upping her game in trying to scare her friends. The bronies over at Pinkamena Party always aim to please and bring the heavy and hard to this music community. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

We now give you more sweet and chocolatey music from ASOS:Chocolate, with this remix that just slaps you with flavor! Grazy’s original is all about fighting for your life in Fallout: Equestria. The same could be said in Ice Angel’s remix, and it seems like Littlepip is ready for round two with this track. The mood changes after each drop, and yes, there are 3 of them, and all emotional changes at that! We have Littlepip on the run and on high alert, trying to fight her way out of battle! With all the elements used, the feel changes after the 2nd drop with this amazing bassline that seems like the battle is in slow motion and Littlepip is taking down enemies with careful aim, and then she makes a break for it! The last mood change comes in after the final drop, when it looks like she is in the clear now, having taken down her attackers and is back to safety. This track was just awesome! At track 23, Ice Angel was able to keep the dire feeling of the original and break it down in mood changes with each drop. This is another great track from the album! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
Nyancat380’s EP has one very strong message. His talent to make hardcore genes blend with other eletronic music genres. It’s a tale of pure psychosis of one Lyra Heartstrings on her quest to find if humans or more so bronies are real. A quest that has done a number on her mind. Nyancat has this passion for horror storytelling with his creative music making for a popular headcanon in brony history his own thing. But enough talking. Let’s check this out, I may add that these genres of music may not be for everyone, but its really cool to hear the creative music making of this EP.

You know Toby, you just keep being one of the most delightful musicians in this fandom. My fellow bronies, it took 9 years, but this classic CMC theme just got the most excellent remix! Toby has transformed this theme with fast and exciting Eurobeat! Those high energy wavy harmonics, those uptempo drums, and pounding basslines take this charming song of the CMC trying to get their cutie marks and as the artwork shows, injects their crusading energy with nitro! You know this theme bronies, now have it with some pure adrenaline! One that Travis Odyssey did not do, but he sure does love it; that really should give you a hint about this track! (look in the comments) Oh, if only Applebloom, Sweetie Belle and Scoots knew where this journey would take them. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
Cadenza Heartsong is very well deserving to have one in Horse Music Herald’s view. One of the best tracks on ASOS: Chocolate. Anyone who has played RPGs for most of their lives (namely Final Fantasy 9) will pick up on this and more than likely have some serious chills and feels,.
At track 46, he takes that inspiration and turns it into something a lot of bronies really need at this very moment, a heartfelt message of hope. The arrangement is like you’ve gotten off a balloon from earth realm, right to Ponyville. You’re a brony so spent with how our world is, that you look around and see the ponies of Equestria living happily and in harmony. The quaint and hopeful elements used are like you’re right in a video game of Equestria. The use of the sparkling harp for the taste of magic is a really nice touch! You find yourself being led to Twilight’s castle as she knows where you have come from. You’re welcomed warmly into her home with the rest of the mane 6 and are treated like family as this track plays on. The artwork and heartfelt message at the start of the video really set the vibe: very nice and wonderful as you come into the world of Equestria. It’s a real gem on this album, but as always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

Alright, after hearing just two of his most recent songs, you can call me hooked on Nicolas’s brand of chill music. I’d never heard of him until hearing his track on ASOS: Chocolate. Turns out Mr. Dominique is a part of the old guard of the brony music scene, as he has been very active since 2012! This remix is so breathtakingly smooth and kinda kooky at the same time. AWal’s track was fast, addictive and crazy! This remix tells a much clearer story. The melodies are full of this eerie and chaotic aura, which is perfect for what the mirror pool is. The fun and quirky Pinkie samples are all there, and holy cow, does this track give you the feeling to kinda worry about so many PINKIE PIES! At the same time the track is very smooth and chill with these dark undertones. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
When I found out CAPT over at Equestria Terror Corps made it on this album, I was pretty happy for him. Making it onto his first compilation album VibePoniez: Homework. The track centers around the Pony Life episode: ” I, Cookie”, where Pinkie is alone and getting pretty creative about keeping herself entertained.
The music itself is this dreamy and kinda eerie sounding lo-fi beat, and it kinda fits because of what Pinkie is dealing with in that episode: animated cookies of her friends! The Lo-Fi flow and beat is very unique in the sense that with it, there is this flavor of insanity as if you listen close to all the vocal chops used. It’s pretty nice for the theme of this track. No wonder this track made it on the album. Give CAPT some love for trying something new! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

Well! If you are wondering what and who Vibeponiez are, this track should get geared up for Horse Music Herald’s kick off of our coverage of Vibeponiez: Homework, their 3rd compilation album to date! It’s a label that promotes the more chill, positive, and inspiring side of Brony Music.

What if just for once Princess Luna, instead of saving you from your nightmares, used her alicorn magic to make your dreams wonderful beyond your wildest imagination!
Enter what that would sound like. What a fluffy and warm track, where anything is possible. This twilight-like melody will give you feels, as you picture Luna watching ponies and granting them dreams of grand adventures, a dream date with a special somepony, or saving the day as a superpony! The soft blending of these dreamy harmonics, rhythmic lo-fi like drum beats, and just add to the sweetness of the track, a smooth use of bongo drums! With track 41 of ASOS: Chocolate, Princess Luna brings the theme of ASOS to the forefront with sweet and awesome treats of music thanks to this composition by Zythiria.

The best villains need their tales told too. Someone really wanted to give the greatest threat(s) to Equestria their own theme song. Playing up to the power trio of Cozy Glow, Queen Chrysalis and Tirek, RedSpark (does just that) with this blend of electronic music and real Orchestra. The song, with its intense build up, presents the intimidating challenge of facing these vile villains. The Flow of the track, sets up the upcoming fight, the fight with so much at stake from the MLP finale in which Twilight must somehow find a way to victory. RedSpark continually builds that stress with the flow of his composition until it reaches high stakes mode. A nice little shout out to the MLP villains, RedSpark! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
