It appears as though progress is indeed still being made on the RPG project Adventure of the Lunarbolts! Arkineer, aka Senjan, has been on board as the project’s composer for over six years and he returns with a totally exhilarating battle theme! With some excellent use of strings and heart-pounding electric guitar, as well as some frantic chiptunes, this will certainly be intriguing to see implemented in the full game and is up there with some of the best battle themes in the fandom thus far.
An undiscovered OST track from the fanmade pony game Ambient.White, Nature’s Frozen Embrace lives up to both the name of the game and the name of Frozen Night, with a delightful Ambient atmosphere that seems to depict a snowy landscape to explore or a mystical place frozen in time where some fateful event happened… or would happen as you visit it in the game.
Pony songs designed as Soundtrack pieces will always have a special place in my heart, as a massive OST fan! Zephysonas displays his talent for the genre/kind of music once more with a track designed to play as a BGM in a forest area in some RPG, and the result is breathtaking and so fitting! A mighty progression lays out many different instruments and melodies, all creating the perfect atmosphere to explore a forest, grind some EXP on the monsters there, and see what kind of rare items you may find in the treasure chests at the end of alternate pathways. RPGs and OST forever!
Created for the popular Pony Town’s Halloween update, Wandering Artist really delivers a fantastic tune with a spooky but whimsical atmosphere. It’s incredibly easy to imagine this in a video game, especially during a night or a graveyard level, and the use of background ambiance, as well as sparse strings is top-notch on this tune!
Available for download on Wandering Artist’s Bandcamp.
Einarx has dropped quite the literal bombshell with this one! The atmosphere that is brought in straight from the intro is incredible and gives us a mix of some digital and Japanese anime vibes. Speaking of which by sampling the Japanese Nightmare Moon’s voice it really sets this apart from what I’m used to hearing! It’s clever, refreshing, and hard hitting and that’s what I love about Einarx and is quite the ‘trick’ of Trick NO Treat: Phase 3 from the folks at Magnus Records. If you loved this one then you really should check the rest out. It is quite a treat.
John Doe’s streak of blissful OST-like tracks continues, and his Ponies at Dawn Enigma contribution wonderfully depicts that place at Mount Aris in the movie and its Magic Water. Such an ethereal and fantasy-like concept is painted beautifully here, and emotional violin just like heavenly piano are doing wonders to create this powerful experience. It would fit so well as a BGM during a certain important scene in a RPG where the characters learn about a tragic situation and new ordeals to overcome, or as a field theme when exploring that mysterious cave filled with entrancing wonders!
Another One Track Mind greatness to bring utter bliss to our ears! Hard to put into a genre indeed, this new take on Equestria Girls (Cafeteria Song)/Helping Twilight Win The Crown is full of the musician’s unique style, blending in several electronic influences into a creative cocktail of sound and vocal chops, for over 4 minutes of tasty heavy bass madness. Sounds like the Fall Formal just got a new princess!
Reappearing in a big way after nearly two years, BLI1NKY shows us that he still has got it with this new track featured on Ponies at Dawn Enigma. Volley introduces some great chiptune elements before getting heavy with the wubs. The synth provides a great melody throughout this upbeat, cheery track.
Stage Clear! Let’s move on to the next stage! The stage of The Bridge features an epic and haunting landscape, and the ongoing fierce battle against changelings is further represented musically thanks to Jyc’s talent and vision. Celtic melodies and tasty percussions do an amazing job at conveying the pace and the struggle, and getting to hear this OST track is a real feast!
Covering one of the very best classics of P@D, Francis Vace gives to the amazing EDM anthem his classic ska vibes with the funny bass and the typical vocal performance of Vace! You did great here Vace, keep doing your thing!
