Time for a new rocking collab, and when I say rocking it’s ROCKING! Djohn Mema teamed up with SlightlyAmiss and the result of the fusion of their musical inspirations is quite epic, providing a new theme song for SHED.MOV. Djohn’s magical guitar performance and SlightlyAmiss’ signature clean vocals are both making for much emotion, in this new collab of many wonders that is so addictive! Such a perfect job from the duo!
This new release from the bringer of pony Neue Deutsche Härte is extra dark, with a certain layer of black shade from our beloved goth ponies! Achieving untold levels of darkness and goth-like lament, the track pays much tribute to the ponies and brings that spirit for us to celebrate again along a bittersweet yet energetic instrumental of many dark wonders, and vocals as impressive as always from the musician!
A blissful and fresh new cover of the classic Hush Now Lullaby, that’s what you’re in for with Richentaker’s surprise! With a much rocking name (Rickenbacker reference much), the talented musician shows the extent of his mastery while paying tribute to the beloved song, and it feels like the early days of the community again! Nostalgic and powerful for sure!
(Before you listen to this. Please listen to Thrashers A Hero’s Ascension and Velvet R. Wings/SDreamExplorerS The Forgotten Reality.)
I’ve heard a lot of music made for our beloved princess of the night, but none has given me goosebumps quite like this. Thrasher, Velvet R. Wings, and SDreamExplorerS collab their past works to make this into a Symphonic Metal track on P@D. Yes, all its melodies and genres sound just right together. The tells the story of Princess Luna’s work in the dream realm. Velvet’s adapted vocals make you swear it is luna singing this harmony right too you. The message that she is your protector in your dream’s and not to forget that. I really like the lyrics. It really does talk about Luna’s work protecting her subjects from the horror’s of nightmare’s. The hard and symphonic metal guitars, help drive home the fact that Princess Luna is a hero to the ponies she protects. A metalhead like myself gives this song high praise.
StableTwoStallion did it again!! Once again inspired by such popular Neue Deutsche Härte music, the talented musician paid tribute to Ember this time, the assertive side of her character fitting so well to the aggressive guitar riffs! And the vocals are just incredible and so perfect for the genre and musical inspirations! A huge success once again!
Reverbrony comes back with a tune that’s extremely fun to jam to! Compositionally, there’s not too much here, as Reverb describes, it’s just a fun song with some awesome riffs. Not to mention, the percussion on here is incredibly unique for a metal jam and mixed superbly. However, of course, the stars of the show are the various riffs. They all seem to end exactly when they’re supposed to, showcasing a great ability in building anticipation and surprise. Cut this one on if you’re on a high speed drive or just feeling great about yourself!
Blackened Blue’s Metal treats are always such display of lovely lyricism about events from episodes, retelling them using the power of rock music! It feels so great to get a musical enactement of Twilight’s antics in S09E05 The Point of No Return, along the screaming vocals and the blissful sound of the guitars!
DivinumX is always good for some hard-hitting metal and for Ponies at Dawn: Skyward, he brings his ‘A’ game! Kindling is the story of Rainbow Dash telling how she started in the shadow of greatness, longing to be one of the greats who casts that shadow in front of a kindling flame. The vocal work is just incredible, perfecting utilizing the spectrum of techniques from clean singing, guttural screams, and chill-inducing harmonies. The guitar work is fantastic, pairing incredibly with the double pedal bass on the powerful drums making for an all-around top-level song!
My Heart Burns for Chrysalis! The Rammstein fans among you who can translate their German titles might get that reference, and just in time for StableTwoStallion’s “Neue Deutsche Härte” track that feels just like Rammstein’s take on a pony song! The lyrics and vocals are so perfect and make the track so nostalgic, and the top-notch instrumental isn’t lacking of Industrial tasty riffs and Gothic keyboard play either!
Reverbrony is well-known for his powerful metal tracks. Featured on the new Ponies at Dawn: Skyward compilation album, The Ocra’s Mercy is a heavy hitting piece that prominently features Reverb’s talent for layering lead guitars with the rhythmic tracks. The swift-moving riffs on top of each other create a pretty cool spinning sensation with the sound and the creative use of harmonics in the outro are just a couple of the incredible features you can look forward to with this song!
