ROKII recently released their SmartPony™ Album and I have to say its a real treat! Introduced with an eerie yet mystical ambiance that relays a sense of discovery and the unknown. From here things progressively ramp up and AI Heartbeat really caught my attention here. Its very mechanical yet melodic and everything feels like clockwork from here as elements are brought in and out breathing life to the machine and is a very solid track that blends the mysticism of the opening with the rest of the album’s inner workings.
After a short interlude we get into the dark and gritty of Internet Protocol Address. After the AI comes alive it than needs an identifier. That is where this track comes into play with some industrial minimalist vibes it really feels like a driving force for whats to come.
This album has quite a lot of diversity ranging from ambient, to progressive house, tech house, dubstep, complextro, and more and its just such a fun experience to explore the mind of the SmartPony™. I especially love its ending. The raw emotion it exudes is awe-inspiring and the world it shapes before we even get into the first few notes really sets us up to let us know that it is indeed getting dark, and their batteries have run out; at least for now…
Part of three new releases, Raze delivers D1SCORDANT’s signature style in full force, with the fitting theme of Cozy Glow’s madness! Get all that heavy and gritty Industrial greatness, and check out the other tracks, namely the Trixie-themed Synthwave beauty Beyond Great And Powerful and the Post Rock treat An Ending Is Upon Us!
Better late than never! As to be expected with PP releases, viewer discretion may be advised.
HO! HO! HO! It’s that (late) time of the year (basically, Christmas ends on the 6th of January, but anyways), and Pinkamena Party delight us with a new album! Taking the concept of “destroying the birth of Jesus” the Crew created, for me, one of the best Christmas related PP album ever! With the likes of yours truly, Dynamite Grizzly, Schatz, Kakofonous A. Dischord, Supersaw Hoover, r_chase, CopyCat, mycutiemarkisagun and some new faces like Koron Korak with an almost 6 minutes dark ambient track, Drixale and Minty Love. We also have the return of Oyama (PeKaNo), and PERNE (Pernegyre).
All for destroying christmas as we know it, and all for amazing charities!
Download the album at Pinkamena Party’s bandcamp!
Elias’ take on a Photo Finish song is a delightful Rammstein-like gem that is so headbangable and enthralling as it is lovingly paying tribute to the character, and not just in the music! The visuals are well thought as well and contribute to this masterpiece’s overall feel, that is so blissful as we think about Photo Finish and her appearances in both the show and the EQG movies and shorts.
Its always lovely to get some Rougher styles of Music on HMH now and then, and therefore I think Beyond Purpose by Reverbrony & Trasher is a good addon for this. Legit, I love this Track! It really speaks forward and straight to the Point with this Melody. The switch from the Synth like vibes to the Guitars and Shredding is very, very well done and placed. I like this. 🙂 Good work!
everybody, show some love. ❤
Hey, it’s the 6th Pinkamena Party! (15 albums were released by PP Crew, but the actual path is 6 albums). Go grab your popcorn, plug your headphones at a higher volume and call your family because this is a show for all family! Yes I said a show, in this case a musical. Not like that Broadway musicals because that’s lame but a really funny and headbanging one! Basically the Pinkamena Party Crew in this album decided to make a musical where Trixie and Rarity get ANGERY at each other, the description of the album on bandcamp bring us an amazing and delightful fanfiction (possibly the script of the musical) for all family! If you take a closer look, the text and the dialogue parts are made off the track names! So, in fact, let’s take a look on the songs, the first half you have amazing hard dance tracks done by amazing musicians such as Dynamite Grizzly, Brohoof Studios, zorg, InklingBear, Schatz and many others! And the second half you have the funnie, noisy, hardcore, scary tracks with artists like Kakofonous A. Dischord, Blind Hyena, mycutiemarkisagun, r_chase and the classy Colt do Bad! The thing is that after a concept album where the artists where challenged to do a 2018 bpm track for celebrate 2018, what is better than doing another concept album where we buck up Rarity? Also we have new names in this 27 tracks album! Like securityfurby (shoutouts to the Spanish speaking readers), Complete Disregard For Pony Life, Ponut Pulse, Batouta & Helius and many others! Everything for Rarity’s (anti)sake! An amazing musical which funds will go to cancer research fundations! Grab the album, stay hard! And I unno I’m just gunna get fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucked!!!! The album is also on RateYourMusic database, good say some nice words on it! Also shoutouts to Zovi and Dave! for staying awesome and keep creating new albums ideas!
D1SCORDANT is back with his own brand of gritty, harsh metal music and this time it’s about fighting the Storm King. The dirty, low, distorted guitars and upbeat drums create this aura of adversity and looming evil which makes for a great theme of an oppressive king approaching with an army. Face the Storm is inspired by evil diesel and steam punk styles of his airships, and D1SCORDANT does an excellent job of making that theme felt through little more than guitars and drums!
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.
An ethereal and surrealistic soundscape that will take you to places. A philosophic variation of a remix of Welcome to the Show done by Brilliant Venture featuring vocal work from Wubcake. One Track Mind has been producing some really splendid and experimental works on the electronic music world. This variation proves that, shows how prolific an artist can be with their creative process. And the result is a 6 minute journey into a dark forest where cruel fantasies are created, a haunting, beautiful and yet mechanical experience. Keep up with this amazing tracks! They aren’t One, because they expand our Mind. Amazing Track!
A mix of modern and retro, featured in the most recent Ponies at Dawn compilation, Rebirth. Thrasher makes a kinda cinematic/retro trance metal track with Metalcore and Industrial/Cyber Metal influences that promises to make you dance and headbang at the same time! A mix of aggressive with chill, Metal with Synthpop. A truly experimentatal world in there. Listen to it!
Don’t forget to download Rebirth on P@D’s bandcamp, they are waiting for you. I’m downloading right now, you should also do it! If you are rich, buy the album, it only helps the artists!
