The opener track of a new EP from Quicksilver dropping this weekend, Malefactor has a resolutely Punk theme conducted masterfully in a Punk Rock arrangement not lacking of Hard Rock vibes. A musical homage to Gilda’s point of view in her debut episode Griffon the Brush Off from S1, the song definitely expresses her feelings with force using the power of rock music and it is such a delight!
Boy, it’s almost like S07E13 touched a lot of people in a way that inspired them or something. Get another song about [redacted] after the break…

Another gem from the Unfinished Business album, this one is shining with dark magic and is working awesomely as a character theme of sorts for King Sombra. With a fitting and delightful Hard Rock body, it delivers tasty riffs and amazing vocals of several different styles, bringing the darkness in the coolest and most rocking ways!
From the Unfinished Business album full of other demo tracks, Turn Into You is a delightful Hard Rock gem like we’re not used to see in this community, about the Changelings and working awesomely as an anthem of sorts. Both the riffs and the lead guitar solo are top-grade headbanging material and it is truly wonderful to get tracks like these in the community too. Hard Rock is not dead!!
Sunset Shimmer also plays guitar! Paying a mighty tribute to the multi-talented character introduced in EQG, the equally multi-talented and awesome GhostXb presents Sunset Winner, an electrifying instrumental Rock track shimmering with beauty, force and passion as impressive guitar play and heavy drum accompaniment unfold. Sunset For The Win!
Known for his hard-rock tracks and as one half of the ska-punk project Luna Ticks, Quicksilver is one of the best up-and-coming rock musicians in the fandom right now, and he’s just released his debut album, Six and One! And following a common theme among collections of songs you find in this fandom, it’s based on the Mane 6 and Spike. Catch the full writeup after the break.
Both as a celebration of reaching 500 subscribers, and in anticipation of his upcoming album, Quicksilver has posted a new song from the soon to be released Six And One. A hard rock song for the toughest mare in Ponyville, this one’s for Applejack and her good old dedication. Congrats on reaching 500 subs Quicksilver, looking forward to the album!
Redd unleashes his potential and creativity in this new Grunge track made with much passion. Structured in 3 parts, this kind of “concept track” will take you all the way to the Everfree Forest, but not for an amble… this is about being hunted by the spooky creatures roaming free in the forest! Embark on the perilous journey, and don’t forget that music is magic, that inner power could help you repel the darkness!
Whooooooo! Time to rock out to Redd’s new cover of the Smile Song from all the way back in season 2. It’s great to hear a cover of this that does something original with the instrumentation instead of simply following the original version note for note. Great job Redd!
