Osoch – Flawless (Covering Daniel Ingram) | Alternative Metal / Metalcore

The recent song from the 14th episode of the Season 7 has inspired a lot of musicians to make remixes and covers. And Osoch is one of that musicians! But why I’m happy about this cover? Because it’s a Heavy Metal cover! So up your irons and get your head ready for some headbanging and moshpits because we’re getting the Metal arena!

Osoch is one of the newest names in the brony metal scene, with only 4 recent songs (all covers, including this one), Osoch has the potential to become one of the hottest names in the brony metal/rock scene. And this cover really shows Osoch talent to re-imagine the song and make by his view!

The drums are really well performed, and that bass flip before the Rainbow Dash verse is really amazing! The guitar riffs performed reminded me of the Modern Metal acts and some of the modern Metalcore acts such as Three Days Grace, Killswitch Engage, Parkway Drive, Flaw (I’m not kidding here, Flaw is a band) and actually when the symphonic elements of the original song combined with the guitar songs reminded me of Apocalyptica and Lacuna Coil! The philter and the reverb used in Pinkie Pie’s vocals is also very well done and then the headbanging and smashing guitar solo makes everything awesome and cooler! And then you realize that it’s the end of the song and you wanted more. Extended versions for this covers are really requested? If they aren’t, it should be requested!

Also this song is available on Rock Farm! The Cider Party for Rock, Metal, Punk, Jazz, Blues and Folk pony songs!

Sprocket – Perchance To Dream | Alternative Rock / Blues Rock / Alternative Dance

Coming from the concept album The Princess Variations, Sprocket delivers a 6 minutes track full of emotion and commitment in the track, that I must say, it’s amazing!

The first part reminds me of Supermassive Black Hole by Muse, then Sprocket vocals are soo Blues vocals, also I can feel in the second part of the song some Blues Rock influence with the mix between the guitar riff and the keyboard sounds. Sprocket vocals are really flexible from highs look-a-like David Bowie and the vox vocals look like some really cool modern Alternative Dance band. The guitar riff is really amazing, so chill, along with the bass that is listenable are is so satisfying.

6 minutes of pure awesomeness! Listen to the track, is really amazing! Also, don’t forget to download/buy The Princess Variations on his bandcamp!

[P@D] Francis Vace & PegasYs – On Your Own | Alternative Rock

While seeing PegasYs’ name on a rock production might come as a surprise to some, Francis Vace is quite the guarantor for quality. And indeed, On Your Own is excellent proof that some unexpected team-ups will sometimes yield results that are very well worth some attention. Pega’s brilliant vocal work, coupled with Vace’s vast experience in composition & recording within their genre of choice, makes this track a both contemplative and energetic afternoon jam, with a guitar duet to top it off—an absolute must-hear for every fan of Starlight.

[ASOS] Lunar Drift – Starlight | Alternative Rock

Lunar Drift has written a song about best pony, and I have the honor of reviewing it! Alternative Rock usually isn’t my thing, but Lunar Drift makes it very enjoyable. Starting with some samples of Starlight’s brainwashing in S5E01, it smoothly transitions into top-notch guitar playing. All throughout, the deliciously foreboding sense of impending danger remains, like the surveillance in Our Town.

Editor’s note: And if you like this, remember to check out the entire ASOS: Lollipop album!

OBSCURA – Great and Powerful | Alternative Rock

A new deep pony song from Obscura, Great and Powerful this time pays tribute to Trixie and her amazing character depth as suggested by her exile at the end of Magic Duel and actually depicted in the show in No Second Prances as she was loosing her first true friend. Touching and thoughtful lyrics are brought to life by Obscura’s beautiful vocals, both soft and strong throughout the progression of the track, which doesn’t lack of an enjoyable Alt Rock instrumental to complete the lovely experience.

[P@D] Flittzy – You And I | Alternative Dance / Alternative Pop

Another great track from the newest and awesome P@D album: Guardians. Flittzy bring us a great tune reminding me of 90’s music acts such as Primal Scream. This tune, which talks about the relation between Twilight and Princess Luna, has everything for becoming the best song on this great album full of surprises! First the vocals are well performed, Flittzy does an awesome job singing and we already know that! Second is the writing capacity of Flittzy, those lyrics were really cool, awesome and with some really meaningful messages. Third is the mixing and instrumentation, the instrumental is very good and the mix between the guitars and the drum machine was pretty awesome, don’t forget the mix between the instrumental and the vocals that was pretty kickass also!

[P@D] Silver Note – Shatter | Alternative Rock / Progressive Rock

Other amazing track from the latest and hottest album from P@D: Guardians! Silver Note is one of that artists from this fandom that gets me vibes from other artists that I love! First Silver gave me Radiohead vibes on Stars and now for P@D, Silver gave me and probably everyone, Muse vibes! Shatter is a great tune reminding me of the old-school Muse albums such as Showbiz, The Origin of Symmetry and Absolution. The vocals, the guitar, the drums, the mixing quality, the lyrics, everything! Silver made this song with passion and with a theme that every brony loves! The battle between Tirek and Twilight!

Don’t forget to download or buy the whole album from P@D, Guardians! Last chance! Will you bow?

Donn DeVore – Winsome Falls | Alternative Rock

One of my favorite releases of this month because of the pony feelings inside it, this new tune by Donn DeVore was inspired by his own feelings toward Rainbow Dash as he went camping with her in real life… Partaking in sweet and blissful moments with her among Nature, he wanted to convey those feelings in a song, to further express his love, and to share it with the world! This cute and amazing Alt Rock gem is the result, with lyrics filled with love and the happiness of shared moments with ponies, beautiful and passionate vocals, and a wonderful instrumental complementing it all with both acoustic and electric guitars and delightful Alt Rock drums. As a bonus, the title of the song is referencing the place introduced in S03E06 Sleepless in Ponyville, when they went camping!

OBSCURA – Changing | Alternative Rock

A very promising pony musician, Obscura releases a much important and meaningful piece, since it took a lot of time and is also the first time that the musician has recorded his own instruments live! With a message reflecting Thorax’s story and the fate of changelings in general, the soft and genuine Alt Rock song brings beautiful vocals along a nice instrumental not lacking of awesome guitar solos!
