Dr. Somepony – Protagonist | Metal

He’s back! Dr. Somepony’s first upload in over a year focuses on Tempest Shadow, and is a sort of progressive piece. The song constantly switches up the beat, the riffs, even the tempo, all while keeping a dark yet energetic feel, fitting for the character it represents.

Shal has impressed me a lot lately whenever he’s released anything, so it’s cool to see something in a different direction from them! Usually focusing on electronic stuff, this orchestral-tinted metal cover of Open Up Your Eyes makes great use of his vocals, as well as some solid guitar throughout.

FlutterRage – The Magic Inside (Covering Daniel Ingram) | Metal

Well here’s a remix I didn’t know I needed. FlutterRage combines the soothing beauty we know and love in The Magic Inside with some thrashing metal accompaniments. Adding heavy guitar chords and a sweet percussive beat to the original vocals actually mixes very well and brings a lot of energy to the track. Combining these elements with a souped up piano part makes this is a fun take on a classic show song!
