PrinceWhateverer – Shallow Naivety 2022 ft. Frozen | Metal

A household name with an orchestral twist! PrinceWhateverer and Frozen Night bring us an emotional track about King Sombra’s relationship with Princess Celestia that fans of the IDW comics will especially appreciate. Keep an ear out for the drum solos as well as the orchestral breakdown by Frozen Night, which beautifully contrasts with the heavy guitar that Prince is known for, putting Sombra and Celestia’s heartbreak front and center. Add to that the wonderful animation by Nootaz, and you have a collaboration that’s definitely worth a watch!

lunar_amity & Seyden – Friendship Was Magic pt. 1 (Desperation) | Metal

You all knew this was coming at some point. You know, musicians putting their talents towards the big mystery of what happened between generations? We drive right into the head of Big Alicorn bookhorse, emotionally broken and her back to the wall. Holy Celestia, does this aggressive string of guitars and drums bring down this feeling of desperation and despair! Seyden’s vocals and screams rip through this track, grabbing at your dang soul to help poor twilight cope with the loss of her friends and unsure of how to move forward with her rule of Equestria. Could this be the very point where the magic in Equestria started to fade? An incredibly haunting guitar solo tops this track off courtesy of Biscuit! Brony metal goodness at your delight, my friends!

Biscuit – THE AIR THAT YOU AND I BREATHE IS NOT THE SAME | Metal

Get excited because there is some new and very promising talent on the scene! Biscuit expresses their unique take on nightmare moon’s perspective of her banishment and relation to Celestia through the aggression and heavy tones of metal. The guitars and drums hit hard while Biscuit’s articulate vocals send a message to the sun princess of how the air that you and I breathe is not the same. Creative, dynamic, and clearly well-thought out, Biscuit is definitely a talent to keep your eyes on (and maybe subscribe while you are at it)!

[P@D] Frozen Night – Awakening (feat. SDreamExplorerS) | Symphonic Metal

The call has gone out to all warriors!  It’s time for “Awakening!”  This epic track from Frozen Night’s concept album, Time’s Arrow, dives right into battle mode as resounding bass drums begin to herald a rousing call to war.  Uplifting choirs and dramatic strings and horns build a sense of destiny advancing into strong conflict.  An uplifting, Celtic-warrior-type melody eventually bursts into a climactic electric guitar solo by SDreamExplorerS, which brilliantly expresses the buildup to the critical point of battle where the tide turns, and victory is assured.  For all who want to awaken the righteous warrior within, be sure to listen to this inspiring track from P@D’s newest album release, Aurora.

Blackened Blue – Another Magical Song | Metal

Blackened Blue’s metal is always a treat, and this piece is full of all the energy one might expect. Starting out with aggressive vocals that launch into a heavy metal instrumental, the power doesn’t let up throughout the track with plenty of blast beats and aggressive guitar riffs. The track itself is about Twilight’s rage at Sunny unlocking magic to the ponies of Equestria in the G5 movie – an interesting concept for sure!

Biscuit – Sad To See You Go | Metalcore

The new wave of artists and music for G5 is strong and wonderful – this is no exception! Biscuit brings us a heart-wrenching story of Sunny Starscout’s loss, pain, passion, and love, all wrapped up in an expertly executed package. Intense guitar work, guttural vocals, and passionate screams, this artist really gives their all here! Super keen to see more from them, and you should be too!

BGM – Make Or Break | Metal

What a classic feeling banger from BGM! It’s got everything you’d expect from a Rainbow Dash tune: catchy vocals, nasty guitar, insane shredding, and a beat that can’t be… well, beat! The vocals are quite the treat, with Rainbow Dash herself taking lead. This one’s sure to be stuck on repeat in your playlist!

Deavas – Snowfall’s Frost | Metal

One of my favorite releases of the year for sure, Deavas’ new pony Metal beauty goes above and beyond, making use of TalkNet for custom pony vocals, singing lyrics you wouldn’t believe..!! The result is an all-out alternate version of the episode A Hearth’s Warming Tail, with Snowfall Frost actually removing the holiday for real as an evil witch, and Twilight happily singing the tale..! I just LOVE fan works like these so so much!!

BGM – The Tale of Trixie | Orchestral Metal

BGM has given us another fine pony tune, and this time their chosen subject is the most great and powerful pony in all the land basically ever–Trixie! The song opens with a gentle acoustic guitar that gives the impression that this song has a tale to tell in classic troubadour style. The guitar is soon joined by vocals that set the scene for Trixie’s arrival in Ponyville (accompanied by lyrics in the video!). The harmonized vocal tracks are awesome, and I love the use of the second track and the shift to the lower key to emphasize the conflict brewing between Trixie and someone (you’ll never guess who) in the Ponyville crowd. The full orchestral metal arrangement is totally epic and matches the lyrics perfectly. I won’t spoil the story, but it’s fair to say that some liberties have been taken in the retelling of events. It’s an epic tail told with suitable aplomb and is basically the most incredible, amazing, humble song ever. You will enjoy it. A lot.
