D1scordant – A Mountain Stood | Industrial Metal

Remember how terrifying and intimidating Tirek got to be? D1SCORDANT definitely does! This track really brings to life the kind of world where Tirek is in charge. The heavy riffs combined with hard snare hits at just the right time create an atmosphere of total destruction. Add in an eerie synth looming over the piece and you’ve got an industrial metal hit!

Sable Symphony will having you head banging to this jam of a cover! This track utilizes very well-produced guitars and the brilliant strings of the original soundtrack.

The L-Train – Rainbow (covering Sia) | Metal

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 12 November 2017.

The L-Train has thrown his hat into the ring with a cover of Sia’s song from the movie, Rainbow. One of the most fully realised covers I’ve heard of the song so far, the juxtaposition between L-Train’s relatively soft clear vocals with an instrumental that gets pretty energetic works really well. and overall this is a pretty great effort.

Radial Rainbow – Razzle Dazzle | Folk Metal / Metalcore

Radial Rainbow! This cover is really brutal and headbanging. The flute is really well performed, I love how it replaces the vocals. Then the guitar riffs are also pretty amazing, I was stunned when I first listened to this and now I’m addicted to this cover! The breakdowns, a thing that is very common in Modern Metalcore, were really pretty awesome! This is full of awesomeness and the last part it’s the best part. With the flute and the piano, then the guitar riff comes and the chorus is played again with more awesomeness and then more breakdowns happened! This is really a treat for me, thank you Radial Rainbow for this amazing cover! Stay brutal!

DivinumX – Where Her Demons Go, We Will Follow | Symphonic Black Metal

Heck Yeah! DivinumX is back with some really brutal kvlt music! Celebrating Nightmare Night, DivinumX delivers an headbanging and amazing 5-minute long Symphonic Black Metal track with a lot of amazing blast beats and orchestral arrangements, really cool guitar riffing and solos! Divinum’s shrieks and vocals were well performed, and the lyrics well written too. A really well composed and performed piece reminding me of acts such as Emperor and Dimmu Borgir! Listen to this track because it’s really amazing, and welcome back DivinumX!

SDreamExplorerS – Like Vinyl (Covering ForeverFreest) | Nu Metal

Inspired by ForeverFreest’s solo version of Like Vinyl, and by great Nu Metal bands, SDreamExplorerS produced his own rocking cover of the song in a record amount of time, further proving his talent and love for making music. ForeverFreest’s vocals made the perfect playground for the aggressive guitar riffs and drums play we love in Nu Metal, and this whole cover is a real nostalgic delight we didn’t know we needed. Also a short announcement video about SDreamExplorerS’ future projects has been uploaded on the channel!

Osoch – Open Up Your Eyes (Сovering Daniel Ingram) | Metal

Osoch’s on a roll, and he went all-out with this cover of Open Up Your Eyes that is my favorite cover of that very emotional song from the movie. Displaying mighty Metal vocals, as well as masterful guitar play and drums, it covers the original so beautifully and powerfully even in the hardest parts. As for the “backstory” part, it is interpreted here in such a blissful way reminding of Prog Rock. A masterpiece of a cover and a token of Osoch’s talent, who I’m sure will keep rising in the pony music scene!

Elias Frost – Time to be Awesome (Сovering Daniel Ingram) | Metal

Elias’ second cover of a movie song pays tribute to the uplifting Time to be Awesome, that (spoiler alert) got Captain Celaeno and the other sky pirates to find back their will to be their true selves again. Those very aerial and “Airship-like” melodies are so beautifully covered here and hearing them in a brand new arrangement along Metal riffs is so blissful, and as always Elias’ vocals are rockin’ it!

Rockin’Brony – The Loyalest and Most Dependable (Covering Re:Make) | Country / Metal

Next in Rockin’Brony’s series of Re:Make covers, is Applejack’s theme that has definitely a distinct Country flavor! Nostalgic in more ways than one by also reminding of RainbowCrash88’s Applejack Stage Theme, this cover of Re:Make’s original song lays out an expert arrangement of banjo and mandolin sounds ending with a powerful Metal finale, with always those sweet Winter Wrap Up melodies!
