Catch a selection of songs below from the likes of Jyc Row, Prince Whateverer, Twisty Tunes, Brilliant Venture, Skyshard and more!

Blackened Blue – Living in Zephyr Heights | Alt. Metal

The future is now in Zephyr Heights! And Blackened Blue comes thriving in from high skies with a banging Zipp theme! The amp guitars are at their full potential, Zephyrina is on the right track with the storming drums and Blue’s screamo vocals have sky-high energy. The tempo and captivating hooks are faultless to maneuverer for a pegasus taking it all to the highest heights. Once downloaded, your G5 playlist will never die with this jam. Also you can rock their merch from their linktree.

Biscuit – This Is Where The Good Bit Starts | Metal Album

We’re dragged in hollow ambience, dispiritedness rings in the air as monstrous guitar riffs creeps upon us accompanied by slow drums quaking the realm. We just stumbled inside the wilderness of Biscuit’s first metal album and there is no exit till the end as we will be tangled by the pressure of radiating demonic screams, restless and torching deep guitar tones, breakdowns of dynamite blasts and double time meteorite drumming throughout this electrifying album.

This Is Where The Good Bit Starts.

Celica Soldream – Frailty (Covering Princewhateverer) | Metal

Celica Soldream may be a name you’ve seen pop up, and if you remember, she’s that beautiful vocalist featured in the works of Jyc Row and PrinceWhateverer. She must have enjoyed working with them, because now she has made her own rendition of one of the Prince’s classics! Along with her adorable OC, she shows her range as a vocalist with melodies pulled right from the original. She backs up her performance with passionate fire in her voice, willing Princess Twilight Sparkle on in her battle with Tirek (from the finale of season 4) with so much on the line! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

SlightlyAmiss – Horse Enough | Post-Hardcore

Alright ponies, time to not take ourselves too serious for a while, cause neither does this song! ‘Horse Enough’ is essentially a stab against people who get elitist about how Pony the music their favourite musician makes is, it’s a song dedicated to all those ‘mlp…please’ people who think they can make demands about the content of songs of their favourite artists. Of course as you’d expect from a SlightlyAmiss song this also includes some nods to fandom memes in both lyrics and artwork, a good example being a line that references the old ‘jar’ and the nod to Vylet Pony’s ‘Antonymph’ in a poster in the artwork. This song kinda portrays a toxic side of people’s dedication to the fandom, where people get entitled to their favourite fandom musicians only producing pony music and if they don’t, they get people saying it’s ‘not Horse Enough’. So apart from this song being an absolute pleasure to listen to, it also provides some nice food for thought.

MelodyBrony – ROYALTY | Metalcore

Always a treat getting a new metallic track from MelodyBrony, they’ve definitely been on a roll lately! The mid 2000’s vibes are strong here, with a very melodic vocal lead complimenting the steady beat and hauntingly beautiful string section. There’s something to be said for a song that says its piece and doesn’t overstay its welcome, and ROYALTY doesn’t go on any longer than it needs to; but if you’re anything like me, it’ll just be on repeat for a good while.

Jyc Row & Gabriel Borza – Aqasha, Goddess of Destruction (feat. Marko Duplisak) | Metal

Today we bring to you this lovely metal cover of Aqasha, Goddess of Destrucion. Jyc Row got together quite a few people for this: The original lyrics were written by Shelley Harland, and covered by the amazing Marko Duplisak. Together with guitars and drums by Gabriel Borza, and of course all the work by Jyc himself this cover is a lovely variation to the usual orchestral focus in the Infinite Eclipse series and definitely worth a listen!

MelodyBrony – DECEIVED | Metal

I could count on one hand the releases from MelodyBrony I didn’t care for, if I had a hand with zero fingers. First premiering at EFNW 2022, “Deceived” knocks it out of the park right from get-go, with hard hitting riffs and powerful singing throughout. You won’t find harsh vocals or flashy solos here, this one’s all about the raw feeling of desperation coming from the Pony of Shadows himself. It’s a fabulous showcase of bitterness and betrayal, and a deserving member of the repeat club~

Nugget – Pesticide | Metal

I always love me some good ‘ol Metal, always. And it’s always nice to see people fullfill their dreams. Such as Nugget has done here, who always wanted to make his own Metal track! And so, he finally did with the help of Blackened as his back-up for this track. Telling a short but epic story of the fight being ON between Celestia and Chrysalis… HYPE HYPE HYPE! I LOVE this song! The tension really gets through the instrumentals here, and the structure really is well set-up here. I head-bang to this as I write this Article. Nugget really put himself out there with this Track and I hope he’ll get the spotlight he deserves for it! Who knows what the follow up to this song will sound like… (and yes, that IS a hint to make a follow up song, Nug. DO IT.)

4everfreebrony – The Finest Creatures Ever (feat. Brittney Ackerman) [Covering Aphylliate] | Pirate Metal

A lot of people might have missed Aphylliate‘s original epic when it dropped in 2013. Thankfully, 4everfreebrony wouldn’t let it go until he had created an appropriate cover many years later (available on his new cover album now!) Set to a line of dialogue from Spike at Your Service, 4everfreebrony injects tons of life and whimsy with the pirate metal guitars, quick and punchy drums, and a little help from Brittany Ackerman‘s voice!
