The last track on the Ponytown Fall Update OST, Tio brings many Atelier vibes with such happy and carefree melodies on piano with lots of playful winds backing them up. It immerses you into a game setting even when you’re not playing the game, and it also always seems to be fragrant with pony spirit, and that’s the best we could hope for an OST track made for a pony game!
Another OST track composed by John Doe for the fan game Pony Town, Falling feels like the kind of field BGM you’d hear on a leisurely walk in some forest area near a stream of pure water, gathering items/ingredients and marveling at the many autumnal charms of the Nature around you. The clopping sounds at the end are the icing on the cake, and delightfully remind of the context of the track!
Crashie Tunez explodes onto the scene with their track from the compilation album OUT OF LIMIT 1.5: Pony Love To Pedrógão Grande hosted by The Experimental Bronies and noise.horse. This tune assaults the senses with raw and powerful instrumentation, distorted and brutal vocals and the strangled cries of an NES. Chiptune and grindcore meet in a fiery fusion that psychotically and mercilessly powers forward like a bullet train, switching between verses and 8-bit synths while a pumping percussion loop rolls on. The track schitzophrenically jumps between melodies and finally crashes to an end with a shocking sound that jolts like an electric current, and the only thing to do after that is to hit repeat. Definitely a unique take on hardcore metal genres, and certainly a rare treat for those bronies who love their music HARD.
Del Rom kicks things off here with great drops, vocal chops, and sound design. It’s a perfect feel good song especially when you prepare for those battles such as those online shooter games or role playing games. The song is definitely something you would not want to miss out on.
Another great song from the recent Ponies at Dawn album is PegasYs and DJT (no surprise since he’s on this album six times). They team up together to combine chiptune with some glitch hop! There’s good, crispy clean sound design along with a really sweet animation that Ice bear’s sure you’ll definitely enjoy watching throughout the entire song.
Here’s something groovy from the one and only PegasYs. With real cute chiptune melodies and smooth sound design, and even go-go bells! Despite the song itself is only three minutes exactly, It’s still such a really bootyful track to listen to, especially in the good ol’ summertime. Now, ready to hit up the beach and play some ball?
Get your raid gear together and make sure you’re a high enough level for this epic boss battle theme made by the legendary Delta Brony. High octane strings, choirs, and drums clash in this duel of the century that even features a “Critical” version of the track that plays should you near victory. With a brilliant mix down and wonderful usage of his music theory, Delta does it again setting the mood for a truly glorious and bold new entry in his vast arsenal of orchestral pieces.
Brace yourselves for this everypony!! Mane In Green truly outdid himself with this one long progressive track infused with a story and delivering a variety of genres to create an epic musical Journey. It has many different instrumental parts reflecting perfectly each part of the story, with fitting instruments and rythm, and telling the story that’s written in the description so well. Over its breathtaking progression, the track will blow you away with epic melodies, guitar riffs, and fusions of genres all around, with Orchestral, Metal, Folk, and even Electronic all finding a share. Overall, The Journey is a masterpiece of story-driven, OST-like music, as well as a token of Mane In Green’s wonderful talent and vision, that will, I’m sure, continue to delight us in the future. I’m getting teary-eyed while relistening to the track and writing this, and I can’t thank Mane In Green enough for his magnificent work and how accurately it blissfully feels like Soundtrack. Long live OST, music, and Passion!
Frozen Night presents us a forest map BGM from a never-released pony fan game and from 2013, and it has those delightful “wooden” plucks and such choices of instruments that are so reminding of many forest map BGMs I’ve heard in my J-RPGs. There is also another field BGM from the musician that comes along it, and it’s for the Crystal Empire, check it out!
Arkineer, formerly known as Senjan, is back with a new OST piece he made for the fan game Adventure of the Lunarbolts, and this time it’s a remix of one of the BGM tracks from the show, Applejack’s Speech! Giving a wonderful new life to the amazing track by beloved composer William Anderson, the remix could be considered a spiritual successor to InfinityDash’s BGM remixes from 6 years ago, and doesn’t fail to pay tribute to the lovely melodies of the original, with an awesome new accompaniment and progression. Long live OST!
One of my favorite pieces from Lunar Drift for sure, this high-energy Orchestral new release delights with an awesome progression filled with many instruments and moods, reflecting Dash’s daring adventures along fast piano, strings, and drums of much intensity and thrill. The whole track’s composition and its progression also give me a strong OST vibe, especially from a danmaku game (that would truly be fitting for Dash). A masterpiece of a track!
