dBPony – Risk | Hard Rock

For this first time in four years. DBPONY come speeding back into the fandom’s music scene. Another first time listening for myself. The song itself comes with a very wise life message. It’s very easy to look at your life and feel that you’re stuck. Feeling complacent. Many in this fandom felt like that before we found something like wonderful brightly colored ponies. Feeling lost until this fandom made us feel found. The fast hard rock that pounds this track sends a message. “Got for it. Take a chance.” Because you never know until you try. I can honestly say taking a chance on this fandom has brought so much joy into many of our lives. A very nice return track from DBpony. As always, This Qilin asks you to judge for yourself for this song.

Brownie – Smile (Pinkie Pie Smile Metal Cover) | Metal

 

Brownie has an incredible talent for metalcore composition, and this cover of the Smile Song is a great example of his range. Starting out in more of a pop-punk style to match the lightness of the original song, Brownie transitions into metal while playing impressively technical guitar riffs over fast, moving drums. The track features a fantastic metalcore breakdown before bringing all of the styles together for the big finish. Brownie went all out to even make a music video featuring his many play-styles with great effects and humorous scenes.

Quicksilver – Best Friends Until the End of Time (Covering Daniel Ingram) | Hard Rock

After returning to pony music, Quicksilver has been extremely active with both originals and some great covers, like this one! The vocals are the original ones, but Quicksilver’s guitar tones are as killer as ever and the percussion in the second verse is incredibly fresh. The video includes footage from this past BronyCon, very fitting of the original theme of the song! Take a listen if you’re into all-around solid show song covers.

PrinceWhateverer – Better Tomorrow (feat. IMShadow007, Sable Symphony, Amethyst Shade, Metal Core Pony, Silent Echo & 4EverfreeBrony) | Metal

Heavily inspired by Argodaemon‘s animations, and this one in particular, this song by PrinceWhateverer is about Twilight. Centuries in the future, when she’s outlived all her friends, what is there left for her to do? Brimming with emotion, this is a truly wonderful piece of music.

Ponysphere & Secret Metal – She’s all mine | Hard Rock

Warning: Some swearing and implied violence in this track!

Taking influence from early, violent fanfics, She’s All Mine is a great piece of hard rock fan music. Achieving a very classic rock sound via the late 70s and early 80s, Ponysphere provides the instrumentation that drives the track in combination with Secret Metal’s vocals that bring it home. Add in a solid percussive beat and some old-school guitar solos and you’ve got well executed, rare, hard rock gem!

Audio

PrinceWhateverer – Stronger (feat. Sable Symphony) | Metal

Prince Whateverer brings the energy in this exciting track! Utilizing his trademark distortion guitars and an epic chorus lead, Whateverer sings about inner strength and overcoming powerful evil while Sable Symphony provides excellent vocal harmonies. These two very talented musicians are no strangers to working with each other and that experience shows in this incredibly solid, fun rock track!

BroniKoni – M. M. D. W. | Alternative Rock

This is my jam!! Pony band BroniKoni presents us the first track from their upcoming album “Friendship Express”, and it’s about the hero-in-the-night figure of Mare Do Well! Fitting to the theme so well with very thieves-y, blissful and catchy flute melodies, the track also features delightful aggressive guitar riffs and tasty drums play, as well as eloquent vocals and cool lyrics, making this track an all-time masterpiece and an almighty tribute to Mare Do Well! The awesome visuals are further contributing to blow us away with an utterly cool Mare Do Well with a flowing cape in the night, and well-executed searchlights, to give the perfect visual accompaniment to the song! Mad props to everypony involved!!
