General Mumble – Perfect [Toby Macarony Remix] | Dark Ambient/Electro Swing

Now, I know it’s a little too early for Halloween. However, if you feel like getting the spookies on before everyone else, you may do your decorations to this track! The dark, gloomy industrial overtones, coupled with interesting vocal effects on “This Day Aria”, which is kind of a signature of this particular artist, makes for an intensely creepy yet strangely satisfying experience. All in all, another great remix from Toby Macarony!

Also, check out the album which this remix is part of here.

Sleepy toaster – We’re going home | Glitch/Industrial

This piece of music is a chilling and a bittersweet reminder of just sometimes you don’t need words for a message. Sleepy Toaster’s piece heavily reminds me of why I love atmospheric music. It’s not just pony music that could be used in a grimdark or Fallout Equestria setting. But this music could be used to set the tone for anything you want to give an unsettling feel too. Or a mysterious vibe to as well. Its has this dark music box tone, birds chirping and static radio sounds with this slow clockwork-like melody that slowly creeps up your spine. Not bad! As always this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself

StableTwoStallion – Tempest Shadow | Industrial Gothic Metal / Neue Deutsche Härte

StableTwoStallion is on a roll with this series of Neue Deutsche Härte-inspired ponifications, and this new installment is about the “Industrial” pony, Tempest Shadow! Maybe it’s her colors, I don’t know. And the musician went all-out again, not only crafting such a stunning song, but complementing it with hoof-made SFM artworks, appearing in the video!

[Out Of Limit 4] Viricide Filly – Seconds Into Centuries, I Let My Hair Grow | Downtempo / Experimental

From noise.horse’s hottest compilation to date, Viricide has submitted their prowess for plucky, glitchy ambiances with this track. This one is not for the weak of heart! Soothing, yet harsh; loose, yet constricted. The passage of time is a complex one and this track is full of little intricacies and design choices that really showcase what noise.horse is all about! Don’t forget to check out the rest of Out of Limit 4: The Philosophy of Time for more abstract and interesting songs, trust me, its really worth the time!

StableTwoStallion – Goth Pony | Industrial Gothic Metal

This new release from the bringer of pony Neue Deutsche Härte is extra dark, with a certain layer of black shade from our beloved goth ponies! Achieving untold levels of darkness and goth-like lament, the track pays much tribute to the ponies and brings that spirit for us to celebrate again along a bittersweet yet energetic instrumental of many dark wonders, and vocals as impressive as always from the musician!

[P@D] Thrasher & Velvet R. Wings – The Forgotten Reality Of A Hero’s Ascension (feat. SDreamExplorerS) | Symphonic Metal

(Before you listen to this. Please listen to Thrashers A Hero’s Ascension and Velvet R. Wings/SDreamExplorerS The Forgotten Reality.)
I’ve heard a lot of music made for our beloved princess of the night, but none has given me goosebumps quite like this. Thrasher, Velvet R. Wings, and SDreamExplorerS collab their past works to make this into a Symphonic Metal track on P@D. Yes, all its melodies and genres sound just right together. The tells the story of Princess Luna’s work in the dream realm. Velvet’s adapted vocals make you swear it is luna singing this harmony right too you. The message that she is your protector in your dream’s and not to forget that. I really like the lyrics. It really does talk about Luna’s work protecting her subjects from the horror’s of nightmare’s. The hard and symphonic metal guitars, help drive home the fact that Princess Luna is a hero to the ponies she protects. A metalhead like myself gives this song high praise.

StableTwoStallion – Ember | Industrial Gothic Metal / Neue Deutsche Härte

StableTwoStallion did it again!! Once again inspired by such popular Neue Deutsche Härte music, the talented musician paid tribute to Ember this time, the assertive side of her character fitting so well to the aggressive guitar riffs! And the vocals are just incredible and so perfect for the genre and musical inspirations! A huge success once again!

StableTwoStallion – Chrysalis | Industrial Gothic Metal / Neue Deutsche Härte

My Heart Burns for Chrysalis! The Rammstein fans among you who can translate their German titles might get that reference, and just in time for StableTwoStallion’s “Neue Deutsche Härte” track that feels just like Rammstein’s take on a pony song! The lyrics and vocals are so perfect and make the track so nostalgic, and the top-notch instrumental isn’t lacking of Industrial tasty riffs and Gothic keyboard play either!

ROKII – SmartPony™ | Album | Electronic

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…
