EnergyTone ft. FritzyBeat & ElectroBlitz – Hearts Strong As Horses (covering Daniel Ingram) | Pop-Punk

Here’s an awesome show cover from a very talented trio of musicians! EnergyTone recruited FritzyBeat and ElectroBlitz to be in his Cutie Mark Crusader group for this high-octane version of Hearts as Strong as Horses. All three do a great job vocally and make the track feel very fitting for three guys covering the parts. The distorted guitars and rock drums give a lot of power to the song and make it stylistically amazing and energetic!

Przewalski’s Ponies – Reroll | Electronic Rock

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 12 April 2018.

I’m not really sure what this song is about beyond RPGs and dice rolls, but there’s a fun electronic and rock hybrid instrumental and plenty of crazy Russian vocals. Plus it comes with a neat typographic video full of ponies, which is pretty cool too.

It’s been a while since I’ve heard anything from SlightlyAmiss, but it definitely sounds like he’s improved! Coming together with a nice lyric video is a great pop rock tune about Rainbow Dash, the highlight is definitely the catchy and thoroughly enjoyable chorus that has some terrific vocal melodies ably supported by a neat guitar solo.

StealingShad3z – Hitori | Alternative Rock

StealingShad3z is back with an emotional track based off of the FimFic “Sleepless Nights”. The track has a soft overtone with beautiful, gentle vocals, while the drums contrast with rapid and uptempo beats. This layering of soft over fast creates an excellent juxtaposition to convey the themes of companionship and anxiety. The lyrics reflect the main character’s wishes not to be left alone in the hopes of battling insomnia, which Shad3z sings brilliantly.

Spectra is back and as good as ever with his beautifully touching contribution to the newest Ponies at Dawn compilation album, Rebirth. A pleasant, acoustic tone with a somber electric guitar lead set the emotion of Falter. Spectra’s singing compliments the song perfectly with passionate desperation, yearning not to be left alone. The reminiscence and emotion in his voice combined with the gorgeous acoustic elements mix intensely to create an incredible, solastalgic track – perfect for a rainy day!

Perfectly capturing the theme of MLP, Home is Where Your Friends Are describes how those closest to us are what brings us out of our troubles and hard times. Starting out soft and only acoustic, the track builds through a synth-infused poppy bridge that leads into an uptempo, punky section interchanging seamlessly to convey the energy that our friends truly bring to us. Emotional, uplifting, and well-crafted, Crusader! offers a one-of-a-kind track that everyone can enjoy!

Fresh from the hit new compilation album from Ponies at Dawn, Flittzy brings us this great rock track inspired by the Fallout Equestria universe.

With always great vocals from Flittzy expressing the lyrical themes of self-doubt and determination, you can really feel the adversity facing the protagonist for what is a can’t-miss song on a need-to-have album!

4everfreebrony – Celestia (Reptilia ponified) | Alt Rock

Ponified The Strokes? Ponified The Strokes! The thing that impresses me the most about this is how closely it resembles the original Reptilia. From the guitar tone to the vocal performance (and the touch of overdrive), it just FEELS like a Strokes song! And of course 4everfree’s talent for lyrics shines through in this song, and how he manages to bring the story behind to life in a new light.
