FINALLY! After 3 years of hard work and production, British musician Viricide Filly releases her 5th album. Bringing us a mix of incredible textures and melodies that are really inspiring and incredible, making the album worth more than just 1 listen! Really, listen to this album more than 5 times! Because this is really amazing!
Now, what I can say about this amazing masterpiece? First, Viricide’s robotic vocals in songs like “Stuck In The Sky” (available on video) are very well mix with the instrumental and the lyrics of the songs are also quite awesome! Second, I love a lot Viricide’s experiments at each track, the intro track is well performed, and also the experiments at “Vanishing Point” (available on Cider Party) are really incredible and gives an atmospheric look to the track. Third, this album actually tells a story about Viricide’s OC, Eleanor, making a great and inspiring concept album.
I recommend this album to everyone, without exceptions! Also, listen to this more than 5 times, please! Give Viricide the feedback that she deserves for her 3 years hard work!
You can download the album from Viricide’s Bandcamp or stream the whole thing on YouTube.
This orchestral house composition blends gentle piano and absolutely beautiful orchestral with funky electronic sounds. The synths halfway through only enhance the already stunning strings. The whole song is full of emotion, and truly feels like Celestia becoming Daybreaker.
BlueBrony’s lovely progressive track alternates between soft and gritty, switching effortlessly to compliment the mood. All throughout, the song maintains a consistent theme, calling back to previous sounds and offering hints of what’s to come. The dual nature of the song mirrors Celestia and Daybreaker’s dynamic, with both sides getting their turn to shine.
I wish I could sum up how awesome the songs on this album in a short concise review. Buuut not only are there too many songs to even scratch the surface of this album, but I think the album stream is still going on!
To be honest, there are even some names on here that I don’t recognise myself – and of course some names that everyone will recognise. That’s one of the best things about these albums: not only do you get some of everyone’s favourites, but you can find a chance to discover brand new musicians doing all kinds of different genres, with more than enough creativity to go around.
Guardians is available to download from the P@D Bandcamp for any given price.

Neon Lights has already blown me away with some of their other house songs, and it’s fantastic to see them both on the new Ponies At Dawn album and featuring on Cider Party too! This track has a great hard hitting drop with big, full saws, and both deep and growly basses.
This is the last of our Ponies At Dawn pre-releases. The album goes up later tonight and the livestream starts in about an hour!
That’s right, it’s another track by hardstyle savant Royalpony! The aptly titled “FUN FUN FUN!!!” delivers all his trademarks. This high-BPM song bubbling with energy has the feel of an older hardstyle track, and longtime fans of Royalpony are sure to feel nostalgic. And, of course, Pinkie’s vocals bring in that special spark that turns the dance-ability up to 11. All in all, a true banger for the dance floor.
This groovy, smooth house track by DJRedSkY uses oldschool synths to wonderful effect. The warm plucks and groovy beat are delicious, and the saxophone adds that special something. The production quality is absolutely amazing and blends all the elements together in just the right way.
This unfortunately scrapped track by TCB bridges so many genres I don’t even know them all – future bass, D&B, instrumental, and more. It opens with a soft piano solo, and progresses into warm leads. Spliced elegantly amongst these leads are vocal chops of the Dazzlings. After the drop, an interesting mix of vocals, wubs, and gritty drums merge. The song finishes as it began, with beautiful piano work.
The Dark Side is now Back To The Action with a returning track shining as bright as the cover art. Uplifting melodies and a soothing mood provide quite a delightful experience, and the progression is quite amazing with several melodic parts completing each other in a beautiful journey of sound.
Editor’s note: hey look remember TBTs haha we didn’t for a long time
If there’s a single song that truly captures the zeitgeist of 2012, this might well be it. ShadyVox‘s lead vocals as Neon Lights are excellent, Nowacking does a flawless Vinyl as usual, and BreeFaithVA‘s at home as Pinkie. The pumping beat, soaring leads, and ecstatic vocals all combine to form a perfect hype-up tune. If you’ve heard this before, you’re in for some serious nostalgia. And if you haven’t, you’re in for a wonderful surprise.
