A song about dating Pinkie, made with such a distinctive OST-like musical style? Yes please! Chiptune Brony has really done it this time, hitting my musical weak spot once again, all while giving much love to my favorite pony. You could easily see this piece playing as a BGM during a dating scene in some MLP visual novel or dating sim! No, I didn’t say eroge!
It is really cool to see music inspired from the IWD comic book series, especially new comics! Chiptune Brony has an awesome and creative style that uses old synth instrumentation to create and epic, 90s era boss theme for Cosmos, a villain that uses mind-control on the ponies and has a bizarre, romantic relationship with Discord. The high, airy sounds set a great ambience of mysterious unrest while the hard hitting-snare and thumping, upbeat bass set a sense of urgency and action. Even without reading the comics, Nova Astralis sets the stage to tell you everything you need to know about how disastrous this villain is!
Toby Macarony is always up to something crazy and this track off of their Wonderbolts themed album keeps it interesting! The upbeat, happy style of Blaze serves as an anthem of sorts for the speed flyer in a way that’s just as mysterious as the Wonderbolt herself. The track utilizes a myriad of instruments and styles from arena organ syncopations, synth riffs, a solid dance beat, and so much more! The only real way to understand the insanity of Blaze is to give it a listen!
As mysterious as it is curiously gorgeous, Heart of Thicket is the conception of Chiptune Brony, the resident jack-of-all-trades composer who hails from Oregon. The composition brings the audience in with ethereal and uncertain soundscapes, later woven into a World soundtrack of sorts. It is very reminiscent of many film soundtracks from the 80’s and 90’s, creating a familiar yet peculiar and exotic set of tones and melodies.
Aaah Fighting is Magic, the memories from that game… It’s always sich a delight to see People get Inspired / Motivated by it still! And Koron Korak’s his cover Of Appul hors theem is no Exception.

Expressing a personal story through music, Crashie crafted this album using his signature musical style and it’s so good to get a new release from him as part of noise.horse’s latest marathon of releases! Fast, brutal and with chiptune notes, the tracks are delivering much power! Get the full album from Bandcamp, it’s available as physical CDs too which is so awesome!
Frozen Night has always excelled when it comes to atmospheric pieces and soundscape design. Winter Dream was written for an action-adventure story game to introduce the player into a post-apocalyptic world. The sound design is beautifully arranged and full, while evoking such vivid emptiness with its sounds of distant high voices, light bells, and atmospheric synths – a testament to the tremendous skill of Frozen Night!
As part of the recently released album from A State of Sugar: Ice Cream, Heartsong gives us another one of their lovely story-esque orchestrations. As you may have guessed from the title, this song builds its world around the idea of the Friendship Express acting as the sole deliverer of the frozen desert as it goes about its busy schedule, starting and ending on a soothing music box melody as it arrives at its destinations. If I’m being truly honest here, the song will do a better job at conveying its world and story than I ever could through words. So what are you waiting for? Catch the train.
Night Symphony’s masterpiece, The Elements of Harmony is a musical gallery taking you through many sights and historical events of Equestria, and all while ravishing ears and soul alike with gorgeous compositions and melodies. From the Pillars, to the Tree of Harmony, to the reign of the sisters leading to the fateful event of the uprising of Nightmare Moon, the 16-minutes track delivers varied themes expressed wonderfully with great musical talent. Not to mention the sudden arrival of the God of Chaos – with such a splendid proggy composition to back him up!
This new piece from Night Symphony may be shorter than 2 minutes in duration, it is still mighty impressive and displays such progressive and melodic aspects that make it very similar to Soundtrack (for example OST from J-RPG games). A proof that you can do a lot in a short track duration, Pony of the Night blows us away with a progression between melodic parts on piano, strings, and organ. There’s even epic choruses backing up the melodies for an emotional result much fitting to the theme, as well as a drums accompaniment that brings variety to the orchestral arrangement and that is definitely reminiscent of Soundtrack. A little, sparkling gem of a track!
