Amethyst Strings – Fading Sunlight (feat. ShadowcatKirara) | Gothic Metal

ShadowcatKirara is back with a new original track made in collaboration with Amethyst Strings and it’s a lovely tribute to Sunset Shimmer and her villain arc! The cool lyrics are just perfect to reflect her ascent to power, and the epic vocals are doing wonders along the tasteful Gothic Metal vibes from the instrumental!


Djohn Mema & SlightlyAmiss – River | Heavy Metal

It’s great to see Djohn Mema releasing more and more originals, and what a power combination teaming up with SlightlyAmiss! River is an intense track that portrays Luna’s remorse from the perspective of the voices in her head that make her feel as if she is drowning in a river. The metaphor is brilliant, the instrumentation hits the emotions very well, and the combination of vocals are spot on! It’s refreshing to see this kind of well-thought out, well-produced heavy metal from a team of such talented musicians!


SDreamExplorerS – Oblivion Highway | Prog Rock / Prog Metal

Here we are with the first single from Ephemeral II: Parallels. Right from the opening seconds this song captivated me with its foreboding atmosphere and intriguing instrumentation. There is A LOT going on here from complex melodies to intricate and subtle percussive elements. The Oblivion Highway is a journey to our past across the the land of memories. You can feel the mood progress throughout as we visit some of life’s more pleasant memories, our vivid recollections, times of joy, and times we wish to forget. The album releases on May 1, 2019 and if you like intricate story telling through song, this is the album for you!


PrinceWhateverer & Djohn Mema – I’m Not Gay (feat. Sable Symphony) | Metal

There’s not only serious and deep songs that get made in the community, but also light-hearted and hilarious pieces like this awesome collab from PrinceWhateverer, Djohn Mema and Sable Symphony! Still showcasing much quality, the track brings some rocking spirit along the hilariously questionable lyrics, and it’s so lovely seeing the three lads gathering for such shenanigans, along a cover art by Dino Horse and typography by MokeDoesThings!


Djohn Mema & Metal Core Pony – Arrhythmia | Metalcore

When I first read the title I was amazed. Metalcore Pony and Djohn in the same track?! Only quality music would come from this duo. The subject of the song is also something really deep, dealing with our disablities. This time is arrhythmia. It could be any other disease or difficulty.
The song itself is amazing, I love how the atmospheric and raw/angry elements mix together, it gives the song a blackned sound. The screams are well done, and the mixing is pretty good. This song is a treat if you like atmospheric and etheral metalcore. A thing that is very present in Converge’s songs.
