For Nightmare Night, Pony Abstract brewed his own treat, and delivers a spooky story all in sick rap verses, showing much talent! Such initiatives are so welcome, and this makes you feel like howling at a Blood Moon from such a mad flow!
Vylet’s new album Queen of Misfits will be released December 25th, and this pre-release certainly shows the color of the Trixie-themed album! I love Trixie and to have an album dedicated to her is such a treat. Looks like the tracks will have a personal meaning to them from the musician this time around too, judging from the thought-provoking description! Time to bliss out to cute vocals and synths alike…
A piece as gorgeous as a sundawn or a moondawn, New Day is Night Blaze’s tribute to the two sisters, as well as a musical take on their backstory. An epic, intense, deep and uplifting composition is brought forth along the progression of the track, and it’s just so wonderful to listen to while thinking about the topic some more!
A new treat from Ardeleiz has come out, and it is a delicate Tia inspiered acoustic guitar solo. The title in Occitan translates to “sunset”, and indeed it makes you feel as if you were sitting by the sea, basking in the last amber to scarlet rays of Celestia’s light, waiting for her to gently lower the sun, as gently as the mellow melodies coming from the music itself. The composition is centered around a catchy main theme with variations all the way through. Go check it out if you want to soothe your soul, and admire the blissful art from WolfieDrawie.
N4ghtwolf is back again with an impressive piece featuring vocals from Liv & Learn. The dark story it tells can be heard both in the instrumentation with a variety of strings and an organ, mixed with more electronic components, as well as in the grim lyrics. The concept-driven piece carries heavy emotions throughout, and definitely manages to convey the creepy feels in the atmosphere crafted in the story.
Ponytronic has a penchant for making creepy-sounding music also sound chilled out. This one in particular is the 5th and final track off their recently released EP, Phantasm. Much of the music here consists of a dark melody played by soft synths with a deep bass in the background as well as a strong drum pattern, perfect for the Nightmare Night season. Check out the EP for more great tracks!
Matching the beautiful artwork of stargazing Rarity with a breathtaking composition on the organ of 12 minutes, Rarity Advocate definitely had another marvelous idea with this new track, that is very unique! We don’t get such pieces focused on the organ often in the community, and the soothing vibes from the sounds are definitely a wonderful accompaniment to the artwork!
Remember Falling continues to impress. This track is another from her upcoming album Dawn Into Dusk, and it’s a beautiful one. The song is absolutely filled to the brim with harmonious vocals set to an orchestral and electronic backing, showcasing what sounds to be a duet between a male and a female with lyrical themes of water pulling Hollow (the album story’s main character) towards the next step of her journey. The ambience all throughout the song really does feel like a trip through a deep body of water, so it’s safe to say RF captured that feeling with flying colours. The album has a tentative release for late this year, so keep any eye out!
It’s been a while since Nexgen’s been seen in the fandom, hasn’t it? This is his first release in 5 years, with his last track coming out in August 2014. Was it worth the wait? Let’s get into that. Backed by a beat by Vinyl.rawr, Nexgen displays his ability to flow along impressively and confidently, showing that after all this time, he hasn’t lost a single iota of his talent. Of course, Vinyl’s beat deserves recognition too, consisting of a low choir and a guitar sample, bringing back feelings of early 2000s rap. Welcome back, you two! We can’t wait to see what you’ll come out with next.
The creepiness doesn’t stop. Toby Macarony returns with a remix of Koron Korak‘s 18 minute long epic Vicious Circle Until Inner Emptiness. While it’s a quarter of the length of the original track, don’t let that dissuade you from listening, as it’s still a great remix in its own right. This remix showcases Toby’s unique bouncy style of electronica while keeping the creepiness of the original intact. The middle section features a truly haunting yet beautiful filtered trance pad sound that becomes more clear before eventually being joined by a catchy drum beat and eventually driving into a big crescendo full of all kinds of creepy synths and piano sounds. Seems Toby can do anything!
