Another classic from PrinceWhateverer, this time he and the crew are singing about Fluttershy! Not Letting Go is a group collaboration dealing with the concepts of low self-esteem and self-idealization from the point of view of the beloved yellow pegasus. MantaTsubasa takes over vocals for a verse, using her talents to tell Fluttershy’s feelings from the first person point of view, and P1K and CGScrambles fill in beautifully on vocal harmonies.
And the last one in today’s streak of Rock/Metal posts, is Reverbrony’s bi-weekly piece full of many rocking wonders! A progression of awesome riffs is blowing us away, and it feels so good to join Reverbrony in imagining that it could be Starlight playing all this! I’d certainly attend to her gig, and same for Reverbrony!
Let’s continue the rocking streak with a new piece by DivinumX, who goes the much welcomed Black Metal route! Deep and dark lyrics are fitting well to the genre, as screaming vocals complement an intrumental that is both heavy and bittersweet, with powerful melodies expressing much feelings.
Enigma has bring us soo many awesome tunes, The Empathy Herself it’s one of them! The mix between symphonic elements, amazing progressions and black metal typical screaming vocals and drum usage, makes this track an amazing Symphonic Black Metal experience with Progressive Metal influence. Soul Strings did an amazing job on this track, with the massive instrumentation and production plus with the vocal performance, mixing screaming with clean vocals, sometimes with effects. The lyrics tell a story, that what I love in Soul Strings’ tracks, they have something to tell.

Is it just me or is it getting hot in here? From Blackened Blue comes this blazing collab with Reverbrony. The guitar and drum work here is excellent, thease two artists merge really well with each other. If Tartarus needed a theme song, this would be it!
PrinceWhateverer continues to show why he is the king of brony metal in this tag team collaboration featured on Ponies at Dawn: Enigma. Utilizing some epic vocals from IMShadow007, this track has all the intensity and refined sound design that we know PW for. A great feature of Shrouded Integrity is the dramatic strings that carry the melody through the track and add a beautiful and almost tragic sense of desperation while the singers call out the subject character for the choices she makes. Another very well-structured composition, be sure to check out this track and the album it is from!
With how the EQG special & music video The Other Side is trending and making quite a sensation in the community, it’s no surprise that it’s inspiring pony musicians to answer the call, but it’s always such an unexpected delight! Elias Frost delivers in Swedish and Metal all the way, covering the original melodies in such a rocking way, and it’s such a bliss to experience, especially when we watched and loved the original! And Rarity!
Here we have a melancholic piece from Reverbrony and FritzyBeat. Themed around Princess Luna; moments before giving into the darkness, you can feel the sadness in the composition as her innocence is cut away, slice by slice, beneath Celestia’s Sun and majesty. Three years in the making its a song well worth the wait!
LaRaikaa (f.k.a. PsychGoth, BagpipeBrony) brings us all the way back to 2012 with a driving metal spin on his original synthy tune based on the fanfic My Roommate is a Vampire. Of course, the beautiful vocals from EileMonty and Nowacking bring even more flavor to the already very tasty djent-inspired instrumental. Whether LaRaikaa will return to do more horse tunes is unknown, but his return is lovely to see!
Well here is the perfect song to get into the Nightmare Night mood. PrinceWhateverer re-imagines the very familiar Nightmare Before Christmas hit to fit the pony holiday using his unique metal style, with the aid of his crew of friends. The many voices contribute amazingly with solo lines as well as haunting chorus parts (especially when they get to the la la-la-la crowd part). A perfect song for the end your October season, or just because you love a great song and parody – be sure to check out This is Nightmare Night!
