Koron Korak, SDreamExplorerS, & Romeo Nightinamare – Guardians of Canterlot (Parody of Amon Amarth) | Metal

What do you get when you get a metal-head fanatic, an expert collaborator, and the king of European metal bass? Answer: A group cover that was fated to happen. Stemming from Romeo Nightinamare’s desire to ponify Guardians of Asgaard by Amon Amarth, they teamed up with Koron Korak and Soul Strings to give us this powerful story of those who would guard Canterlot from Queen Chrysalis and her “cannon fodder’s army”. The expert guitars really pop out in front of subtly brilliant drums. Mix that with S-tier bass action and some deep, DEEP vocals and you’ve got a cinematic war song!

My Little Remix – Brony vs. Brony Remix War X: 10th Anniversary Invitational | Compilation Album | Multi-Genre

Welcome one and all to a truly auspicious event: The latest installment in the My Little Remix series! For those that don’t know (which included me before this album), MLR began in 2011 when the pony music scene was absolutely exploding as a way of pulling artists together into a more cohesive community. There have been nine albums featuring some of the best talent of their respective times, and though the creative mayhem of the early days has come and gone, the songs that those artists and others who took up the horse music banner produced left an indelible impression on the fandom music landscape. What a wonderful delight, then, that the time-honored tradition of remixing has returned for yet another glorious compilation of fandom talent! This album is a really fantastic musical journey full of lovingly produced music, and it is my absolute pleasure to introduce you to its track along with my co-conspirator, Simon. So go download the album, kick back, and join us in this beautiful appreciation of horse music achievement! Also, how great is it that the tracks are labeled “befriends”? Whomever came up with that deserves a hearty huzzah! Alright, let’s get into it!

Derek Spear – This Day Aria (Covering Daniel Ingram) (feat. MIKITANII) | Symphonic Metal

Man, it’s been a hot minute since something covered this song! Brand new to the brony music community, mind you! But, I must be honest, you can not tell that Derek is new at all. Not when You have the mood changing as it does in the transitions between Cadance and Queen Chrysalis! A classic note for note composition of pure pony orchestra for Cadance switches to this brutal, epic metal, and nasty mood for Chrissy! It brings so much the perspective of this song, And I would not be remiss if I did not say that the singing vocals of MIKITANII brings the emotional face-first and on point for both Cadance and Chrysalis with their voice! Just WOW. Listen to this track and a new spin on a classic! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

[P@D] Blackened Blue – Down Below | Metalcore

My buddy Blackened I like to say, is an all-around musician who, if you pay close attention, has a knack for blending all rock and metal styles for a gateway of the story he is trying to tell. The emotion of a lost pony at sea in this Metalcore typhoon on P@D: Oceansong. The deep and darkest parts of the deep equestrian oceanic are places that no creature dares goes. Even the Seaponies dare not go there! Blackened blends, Metal, Hard, and a tad bit of classic rock elements to tell this story of the pony facing the end of the line with his shipmates already gone. Or soo it seems. His lyrics dive into the emotion of fight for survival, and man does his screams hammer the desperation! The melodies pull you that way until “a friend in the darkest hour” comes into play. The Salor, at the moment of death, is saved! Not to die drowning that day, a group of sea ponies who seen the ship go down from the sky as hippogriffs dove in to make the save! But grimly, he only survivor as the song seems to come across. Blackened sure has grown in taking his skill in making excellent metal and added this skill to his name. Great stuff. As s always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
