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!
“Gentlemen, I give you…MORE CORN!”
It’s fun, it’s silly, but it’s also pretty darn good. Get your fix of classic prog rock from Shinzm with this time-signature-changing bluesy piece that’s essentially a 4 minute guitar solo.
Replacer’s back once again with another oh so lovely tune! Catchy and groovy and with that undistinguishable Replacer style that only he knows how to nail down right. It’ll probably get fast to your head, what with all them zoos flying around~
Russian band Gryphon Rush releases their debut album that is one great mix of well performed old-school hard rock!
The production quality on the album is very good, good enough for a hard rock album! Focusing on a dedication to the brony fandom, Gryphon Rush’s vocalist, Lynch transfers a great energy to the songs, the guitar riffs also done by Lynch are also well performed. Abadakus’s mixing and mastering, gives to the album that production quality that I’ve tell you before. The drums performance done by Wave is also very good, giving the good rhythm to the album. This also plus the mix with songs sung in English and songs sung in Russian make this album an international masterpiece, putting once again the Russian pony music scene to the top! As rock listener this album have various genres that fans of Iron Maiden, Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Queen, Led Zeppelin, The Yardbirds and Lynyrd Skynyrd will love it! The album is available on YouTube in full version or in separate tracks. Also you have the full thing for download on bandcamp!
You can download the album on Gryphon Rush’s Bandcamp page, or you can stream the album as a whole or track-by-track on their YouTube channel.

Neighsayer’s been a little slow with releases recently, but here he’s managed to put out what is quite possibly my favourite track from him. This is a really awesome alt. rock style track about Sunset Shimmer, featuring art from Shamanguli (feels like almost everybody’s using his art nowadays! Can’t say I blame them though). The groovy sound that comes in around 2:30 is just fantastic, and overall it’s a really nicely composed instrumental piece. Definitely worth checking out!
As per usual with Replacer’s songs, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this when I saw it on the Voyager tracklist. Replacer did, however, bring something completely different to the table add per usual with this darkish alternative song that almost has a marching feel with the driving kick drum, as the rest of the instruments fall in place one by one accentuating the rhythm.
Here it is, what’s bound to be the best Ponies At Dawn album yet. With each new album comes both a new selection of artists as well as some of the great ones who have been around for a while – something that is in my opinion the best balance when compiling brony music.
The album is available completely for free on Bandcamp, or you pay whatever amount you wish for it. You can expect to see many of the songs from it posted on the site in the coming days and weeks!
Well here we are! The resident ‘mega collab’ from the recent LDB album is a phenomenal work of blues music (something we don’t get too often in the fandom) from Spectra and Liquid Harmony, featuring Flak on vocals, Dragonal on lead guitar and Zephysonas on saxophone. This track is something a bit different from Spectra especially, but he’s tried on many different hats, and they all seem to fit just as well. Definitely one of my personal favourites from the album, make sure to check it out!
Just over a year after the release of their first compilation album, Beats Me, Lycan Dese Beats has released a new album, consisting of entirely new and exclusive songs by the musicians they usually feature on their show. Similar to the Ponies at Dawn albums, this album offers songs from a grand variety of artists, however, this album has a greater non-electronic influence that you might expect, perhaps more all-rounded.
You can download this from Bandcamp for any given price, and we’ll be featuring songs from the album as they’re released with an [LDB] label in the post titles.
YYYYEEAAAAAAHHH!!! It’s about time we got some blues on here! Ponysphere brings us a song based on the classic one-way admiration between Spike and Rarity. I hope we see more blues music in the fandom music scene soon, this stuff is awesome!
