Long live Prog! Rinnie expanded on Lunar Drift’s love of the genre by covering Chaos & Harmony themed around Discord, and this new interpretation is presenting new progressive wonders and ideas that certainly would make the God of Chaos proud. So glad that Rinnie is covering other brony songs in addition to show songs!!
Raise your hand if you’re late to party about the Wastelands Wailers. *This writer does*. But its no matter. The first time hearing Haymaker and Brittney Church was refreshing. You’re treated to classic rock and roll with very well sung lyrics. About a pair of lovebirds trying to get by in the wastelands of Equestria. Long time fans of this group will know that their music is based off the Fallout Equestria fanfic series, and the work done by them for OvermareStudios. The guitars are very smooth, gritty and romantic. The track is a throwback to the 80’s style rock and romance like someone like Bruce Springsteen would do. It’s nice P@D Ignite still tries to put all kinds of genre’s on their albums. Classic rock is nice art that should be done more, way more. As always, This Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
The #1 bringer of Prog Rock in the community, Lunar Drift provided anew with a 7-minutes progressive beauty, full of nods to previous tracks but also of new ideas. Let the distinct sound of the Rickenbacker 4003S bass guide you in this new musical world themed around Discord!
I’ll never get tired of such blissful rock covers, extending the feeling from the movies! And songs from the Rainbooms in EQG have a distinct charm and emotion to them, ever since Rainbow Rocks, that can definitely be felt here in this awesome new rendition of the closing song from Legends of Everfree by Rinnie!
If there’s one thing Toby Macarony’s good at, it’s defying expectations. This track is a rock n’ roll piece that sounds like it was lifted straight from the 1950s. So many great elements are here: a catchy bassline, a prominent trumpet riff in front of some acoustic chords as well as some jazzy drums. Makes you really wanna grab a few drinks, doesn’t it?
Replacer’s contribution to Ponies at Dawn Eternal is as unique as always, with that oldschool yet fresh musical style doing wonders to bring that brony spirit up front! Yes we shall keep singing in many colors for years to come! Such lovely vocals are so cute, and that jazzy instrumental is so tasteful! A masterpiece for sure!
A new release from iRhymeTheSongs is a fresh breath of Equestrian air in this world… For the musician always makes such lovely ponifications! It feels like this could be the equivalent of our famous Oh, Pretty Woman song, in Equestria. Just imagining Rarity listening to this like the kind of Classic Pop/Rock songs she’d appreciate… wonderful! The vocals are definitely very fitting for the genre, and the whole ponification is a dream coming true for the fan of oldie-goldies like these!
From new compilation album Brony Forever, this tribute to BronyCon is carrying the musicians’ feelings, and it’s so wonderful how they came together for a musical tribute to BronyCon through that album as the last edition of the community’s biggest convention happened. Mellow vocals and bittersweet synths are completed by a requiem on the guitar with that solo, making for a very rich song!
It’s Disco Night at the Changeling Hive! Velvet and Andy provide the perfect changeling track to dance the night away to, and the lovely lyrics are a perfect match for Velvet’s cute vocals. Andy did amazing on the instrumental too and they both certainly paid much tribute to both that musical genre and to Chrysalis! An uplifting and delightful treat, from the Transition album!
