Elias Frost – We’ve Come So Far (covering Daniel Ingram) | Industrial Metal

You can always count on Elias Frost to cook up something different. Covering the opening song from Equestria Girls: Forgotten Friendship, Frost takes the happy pop track to a heavy, darker place. Adding some metal beats, a lot of distorted guitars, and a dramatic synth, Elias creates a brilliantly unique take on the original, complete with the video of him performing it.

EnergyTone ft. FritzyBeat & ElectroBlitz – Hearts Strong As Horses (covering Daniel Ingram) | Pop-Punk

Here’s an awesome show cover from a very talented trio of musicians! EnergyTone recruited FritzyBeat and ElectroBlitz to be in his Cutie Mark Crusader group for this high-octane version of Hearts as Strong as Horses. All three do a great job vocally and make the track feel very fitting for three guys covering the parts. The distorted guitars and rock drums give a lot of power to the song and make it stylistically amazing and energetic!

Shal Music/FX – Open Up Your Eyes (covering Daniel Ingram) | Metal

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 6 April 2018.

Shal has impressed me a lot lately whenever he’s released anything, so it’s cool to see something in a different direction from them! Usually focusing on electronic stuff, this orchestral-tinted metal cover of Open Up Your Eyes makes great use of his vocals, as well as some solid guitar throughout.

4EverfreeBrony – Kindness (covering AcoustiMandoBrony) | Pop Rock

Kindness. A song that has always touched me on such a very powerful and inspirational level. I instantly want to write music each time I am reminded of this song. Coming from a huge Fluttershy fan myself, I can relate to sooo many people who share their stories with this song. Its legendary, Truly. 4Everfreebrony did an AMAZING cover of this Song. I hope Re:Make and Andy Stein see this because they really need to! They created a song with so much power and it’s beautiful to see that it still lives on through so many! Thank you soo much for reminding so many people why being a fan of Fluttershy is so awesome. Keep up the good work man. ^^ everybody, show some love! ❤

Osoch – Friendship Always Wins (covering Daniel Ingram) | Metal

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 29 March 2018.

It’s that time again, where new songs from the show mean some musicians giving their own unique takes on them! Osoch has already managed to put together a few great metal show covers, so it’s no surprise to see this one from him. It makes good use of the vocals from the original, with some heavy guitar and percussion adding some nice energy.

Anthony McBazooka – Discord (covering Eurobeat Brony) | Acoustic

Here’s something completely different (which I never thought I would say about Discord of all songs). Performed entirely on acoustic guitar with vocals, eurobeat enthusiast Anthony McBazooka demonstrates an array of talents from singing the wide range of the track to providing bass thumps through the body of his guitar. The performance is entertaining to watch start to finish, and McBazooka seems to do something new with every phrase he covers.

(A very belated) Horse Music Hotspot – February 2018 (the “We’re Sorry It’s So Late” edition)

HMHotstpot main art

It is (or rather was) the 2nd anniversary of the Horse Music Hotspot this February, and what better way to celebrate than to release the episode extremely late? I can only apologise for the delay, multiple issues from technical difficulties to IRL problems caused it, but better late than never!

Tracklist and embeds available after the break

Rockin’Brony – Winter Wrap Up (covering SHAICO / Daniel Ingram) | Symphonic Metal

Inspired by an old cover of the show’s first big hit (originally produced by SHAICO), Rockin’Brony re-creates Winter Wrap Up as a brilliant, symphonic instrumental. RB’s always top notch guitar soloing ability is really on display here, with several layers of great guitar work and shredding interspersed through the track. The drums are on point for the upbeat style and the bells really ring out the top-end of the mix for an extremely fun take on the beloved classic!
