Sprocket – Perchance To Dream | Alternative Rock / Blues Rock / Alternative Dance

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!

Soren Ember – Nighttime Blues | Classic Rock

We can always count on Soren Ember (formerly Obscura) to bring the most tasteful Classic Rock sounds with his songs, and this one is no exception! An ode to the Night and its blissful comfort, the track takes us into a mellow yet powerful ride through amazing vocals reflecting much talent, and a soft instrumental where drums and guitars are soothing the mind and guiding the soul. The two guitar solos in the second part are completing the experience and delivering rock music bliss, with the second solo even giving Mike Oldfield vibes, which is so wonderful to get!

Long live the Night and rock music!

The Wonderbolts – Love and Tolerance is Dead | Classic Rock

My favorite pony band The Wonderbolts are going to perform at BronyCon and along these awesome news they’re treating us with an exclusive song proudly wearing a much Punk Rock title, Love and Tolerance is Dead! You can always count on Wootmaster, Arin, and the rest of the band to deliver the most delightful pony spirit in a tasteful rock fashion by making the amps scream and the guitars gently weep, and this one is no exception! Wootmaster’s lovely vocals are evolving from his signature style to a much more Classic Rock approach through the progression of the song and that is definitely an amazing surprise, with Classic Rock passion from the musician and singer shining through the masterful and nostalgic vocals that definitely make for a lot of emotion. Along catchy riffs and crazy drum work, the song lays out such a sweet and delectable vibe full of the power of rock music, and then it is time for the solo part to blow us away in a swirl of emotion, as lead guitar, rythm guitar, and bass guitar all complete each other for a stunning result.

Truly a wonderful moment of merriment, musical appreciation and pony feelings courtesy of The Wonderbolts.

The Ponytones – I Want to Hold Your Hoof | Classic Rock

The Ponytones is a collaboration of pony music lovers to ponify famous and classic songs. I’ve got a vested interest in the project from the get-go, as I’m good friends with one of the contributors. But even if you’ve never heard of any of these people, their first song will get you interested in the rest of the rest of their respective works.

It’s a truly stellar parody of Beatles classic “I Want To Hold Your Hand.” With genius lyrics, amazing vocals and vocal editing, beautiful instrumentation, this is simultaneously a very fresh and a very nostalgic piece. The mixdown is raw, bleeding, and perfectly oldschool. Rock isn’t my thing, but I Want to Hold Your Hoof has seized a position in my heart alongside my favorite songs of my favorite genres. What a song!

Denz Xavier – Hero’s Flight | Progressive Rock

We don’t often get something that resembles the good ol’ Progressive Rock from the 70s/80s, and I would be tempted to label this Neo-Prog but there’s just some sweet, blissful Classic Rock vibe to it that can’t help making me feel nostalgic. This track has just the right sound, creative values, melodic structure, and progression, to make it an outstanding instrumental piece from the artist that is definitely a delight for Prog Rock fans like me. In Prog We Trust! (who’s going to this year’s festival?)

Reverbrony – Out Of Time | Progressive Rock

It’s interesting to see commissioned songs by certain artists; in my opinion it presents them with a chance to take on a theme or perhaps genre they normally wouldn’t have considered on their own. Here we have something commissioned to Reverbrony with the theme of time running out incorporated both into the theme and the soundscape of the song. And that bass tone is fantastic too, great production as always from Reverbrony!
