NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 9 June 2018.

SDreamExplorerS and Velvet Wings always make for an awesome combination of collaborators, with Velvet’s operatic vocals and DreamExplorer’s harsher ones combining with an epic metal instrumental to deliver a powerful tale of the windigos.

Crimes Against Sound – Lyra Heartstrings (Peggy Lee ponified) | Rock

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 3 June 2018.

This is the first music release from Korneev (that I’m aware of at least), and it’s a good one too! A fantastic parody of Johnny Guitar (a song which some may have heard from the Fallout New Vegas soundtrack) all about Lyra, it has some absolutely gorgeous hand-drawn animation as well of Lyra jamming along.

Repent In Reprise – Becoming Popular (covering Daniel Ingram) | Orchestral

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 3 June 2018.

If you’re familiar with the old works of Dr. Dissonance, you’ll be excited to see something like this! Repent in Reprise’s rendition very much works off the same sort of style, with many industrial steampunk elements adding a nice unique flavour to the orchestral rendition on show here.

Frozen Night – Tears of The Evernight | Orchestral Metal

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 30 May 2018.

Frozen Night’s works are always lovely to listen to and this beautiful piece is no different. The instrumentation throughout the track evolves in an especially gratifying way and there’s some pretty epic progressions as well. As is often the case with Frozen’s works, there’s a nice touch of metal guitar meshed together with the powerful strings and percussion.

[P@D] Seventh Element – Tetrahedral Memoir | Orchestral / Breakbeat

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 14 May 2018.

Seventh Element’s music can get exceptionally deep at times, especially when he forays into combinations of orchestral elements with breakbeat percussion and electronic synths. The result here is a gorgeous meld that tells a story of Twilight’s journey into her own mind to face some inner demons.

4EverfreeBrony feat. Koron Korak – Shining Star (covering Woodlore) | Acoustic Pop

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 27 May 2018.

WoodLore may be pretty much done with producing music for the fandom, but 4Everfree is keeping the spirit of his music alive with this beautiful interpretation of one of his old classics, Shining Star. Featuring some lovely violin from Koron Korak, 4Everfree’s vocals are a lovely new take on the lyrics with a soft and sweet instrumental.
