PrinceWhateverer – Remember Me (feat. Blackened Blue) | Metal

Is it me? or is PrinceWhateverer improving on telling a story through his music? This deep track from Starlight Glimmer’s point of view integrates the events of seasons five and six. Prince sings about Starlight’s desires to improve herself and the events of yearning to once again see Sunburst. Starlight hopes that her old friend remembers and feels the same, and maybe something more. Prince is on top of his vocal game along with the help of Blackened Blue in the harmonies, to screaming with sorrow for her anger and sadness. The heavy metal and sweet piano chords are oh so fitting for this track; gets you right into the head of Starlight, front and center. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

Brownie – Out On My Own (Covering Daniel Ingram) | Metal

Hey friend! Do you like CMC songs, but you get bummed out by their traditional orchestral arrangements? Well, never fear! Brownie has taken Apple Bloom’s sad soliloquy and given it a most triumphant metal twist! Brownie stays faithful to the original lyrics, giving them both a great melodic rock delivery and providing some satisfying screams as backing vocals to give the track a crunchy metal edge. The song opens with a full-on guitar attack backed by some great percussion, and after sprinkling in a little softer guitar melody, the video kicks in. The vocals sync up really well with Apple Bloom’s mouth, which definitely adds to the fun. As an added bonus, there is some fantastic guitar work and rock percussion that continues on after the original video ends, and there is a hilarious bonus message at the very end that almost made me fall out of my chair laughing. Overall, a most excellent effort by one of the stalwarts of horse rock!

StableTwoStallion – Maud | Industrial Metal

There’s no questions StableTwoStallion is the reigning king of the industrial sound, having released several tracks in the genre last year. Sung in German, this dark, heavy track is about the working live and personality of the titular Maud Pie. The guitars are tuned down and carry a dirty, distortion while the drum snare and kick hit hard to emphasize the powerful nature of the track.

SDreamExplorerS – Ephemeral III: Imhnieńnie Ščaścia | Album | Folk Metal


(The Title is translated to: Ephemeral 3: A Moment Of Happiness)
(English translation of lyrics are found in this link, Special Thanks to Soul Strings for providing them to us )
The following article was Co-written by Drake EmberHeart and Simon the MadhatterBrony.
(PS: do not worry if you can’t understand Pavel’s voice acting in this album, with the english lyrics guide and our article. You the listener should enjoy this album just fine, oh if you do buy the album on Souls’s bandcamp. It comes with the doc with the english translation!)

(Start of Drake Part)
There is a very special place in my heart for musicians that just go the extra mile with their music. The effort, the passion, the hard work writing and composing this type of grand music. Soul Strings and his friends have done just that: a folk tale of a loving father and his filly daughter leaving what they knew to find a cure to the illness that’s slowly killing her. They travel to Equestria from leagues away from their homeland, in the hopes of getting to Canterlot and ask the royal sisters Celestia and Luna to save his daughter’s life with their legendary alicorn magic. With the journey comes how to tell that story with the glory of heavy metal!

Blackened Blue – All You Need | Metal

So, everypony, have you ever wondered what would happen if Potion Nova wasn’t this happy character but much darker? That is exactly what Blackened Blue touched on with his newest song “All You Need”, but let’s cut down on the rambling and get straight to it!
The track starts out with a guitar riff so amazing that it blew me off my chair on my first listen through. It’s quickly followed by the amazing lyrics from Blackened all about the real intent of Potion Nova: being a drug dealer and telling an apparent addict in her home that they will never be able to escape the addiction and that this is all they need, which drove a chill down my spine. As the hook returns, Nova tells the addict that there is no escaping from her. Then Blackened surprises us with some more amazing lyrics, screaming vocals, and a guitar solo so awesome that after twenty listens through I’m still struggling to describe it properly. And for the end we once more get the amazing chorus.

PrinceWhateverer & Jalmaan – Enemy Undefined | Drum & Bass/Metal

LOADING WRITING SYSTEMS……….
LOADING INTRO……..
Okay, everypony, today we have something special! “Enemy Undefined” is the sequel to “L_ST-_N-D_TA”, which makes this the third installment of PrinceWhatever’s “Destabilize” series which is all about Sweetie Bot getting her cover blown and having to flee; but enough of my rambling–let’s get straight to the song!

LOADING MAIN PART………
The song starts out with a muffled beat by Jalmaan which slowly gets louder and clearer, and you soon come to realize that you’ve gotten even more than you expected when clicking on this song. The lyrics, most of which are Sweetie Bot’s programming going completely haywire, begin with a system failure log and reveal Sweetie Bot’s unfortunate situation: In her current state, everyone else is seen as a threat, and lethal action is her default response. Sweetie Bot asks her pursuers if they believe that she is dangerous, and then, with just a small bit of beat as transition, the drop hits, with awesome guitar work accompanying the beat as Sweetie Bot prepares to fight whomever is chasing her, until a sounding alarm is accompanied by even more awesome guitar. Sweetie Bot then wonders: What will happen if she actually kills somepony; will that finally make her feel alive? As the drop hits, Sweetie Bot challenges her pursuers suggesting that they follow through decisively if they agree that she is a threat and warning that she is unlikely to surrender. Once again Sweetie Bot finds herself struggling to see anyone else as anything other than an “enemy” as the muffled beat resumes, creating a sense of tension and expectation. A short passage of lyrics ushers in the chorus as Sweetie Bot prepares for what might be her last standoff…

StableTwoStallion – Ewige Nacht | Industrial Gothic Metal

In the spirit of Nightmare Night, StableTwoStallions brings us this heavy, industrial track to really set the tone of the holiday. The drums hit hard, especially the kick. The guitars are loud and fuzzy which creates a disorienting feeling for the listener as the vocalist sings about the terror of the Eternal Night. The whole song has an overbearing sensation which perfect for the theme!
