Brace yourselves for this everypony!! Mane In Green truly outdid himself with this one long progressive track infused with a story and delivering a variety of genres to create an epic musical Journey. It has many different instrumental parts reflecting perfectly each part of the story, with fitting instruments and rythm, and telling the story that’s written in the description so well. Over its breathtaking progression, the track will blow you away with epic melodies, guitar riffs, and fusions of genres all around, with Orchestral, Metal, Folk, and even Electronic all finding a share. Overall, The Journey is a masterpiece of story-driven, OST-like music, as well as a token of Mane In Green’s wonderful talent and vision, that will, I’m sure, continue to delight us in the future. I’m getting teary-eyed while relistening to the track and writing this, and I can’t thank Mane In Green enough for his magnificent work and how accurately it blissfully feels like Soundtrack. Long live OST, music, and Passion!
Now here’s something that I love to see and that is so very lovely. With expert hands, LuRhythmic did a Piano improv using chords from the famous Awoken by Glaze aka WoodenToaster and H8_Seed, resulting in a blissful Jazz-y track that would fit so well as a BGM in some chill night bar. Also check out the Piano improv of Nightmare Night, the Bebop Jazz cover of Bats, and the Big Band Jazz cover of Rainbow Factory! They are all awesome and rare gems!
ThisSideOfOblivion presents us a remix of a classic from 2013, Open Your Eyes from Aviators. With a solid rearrangement bringing drums, strings, and even delightful sax, it doesn’t fail to pay tribute to the original in a chill yet intricate way!
Frozen Night presents us a forest map BGM from a never-released pony fan game and from 2013, and it has those delightful “wooden” plucks and such choices of instruments that are so reminding of many forest map BGMs I’ve heard in my J-RPGs. There is also another field BGM from the musician that comes along it, and it’s for the Crystal Empire, check it out!
An epic orchestral track depicting a battle between Twilight and Tirek. Jyc Row bring us this amazing piece which perfectly embodies the moment. Filled with strings, percussion, epic drums, brass, and obligatory choir, the track truly packs a punch. On top of all of this, a beautiful vocal brings it all together in a true masterpiece.
It’s time for the second episode of Blue Note’s Symphonies, announcing a brand new journey for the mare! From Canterlot to Cloudsdale to Griffonstone, the brave pony discovers many beautiful landscapes as we listeners discover many gorgeous soundscapes and compositions from Blue Note’s heart, bringing fitting musical moods and reflecting the emotion felt from those places in a wonderful way. The symphony ends in the warm comfort of the Night, as we wonder what other events and sounds the future holds…
One of my favorite pieces from Lunar Drift for sure, this high-energy Orchestral new release delights with an awesome progression filled with many instruments and moods, reflecting Dash’s daring adventures along fast piano, strings, and drums of much intensity and thrill. The whole track’s composition and its progression also give me a strong OST vibe, especially from a danmaku game (that would truly be fitting for Dash). A masterpiece of a track!
John Doe treats us with a wonderful Orchestral piece of many wonders that definitely feel like they’re coming from Equestria. Wooden-like xylophones, a chill yet deep atmosphere, an ambience that feels just like a stroll in a forest, and… cute sounds made from squeaky toys! The gorgeous track feels very pony as a result, and it’s no surprise that it is also present in the fan game Pony Town!
Ertrii delivers once again and this time with a Piano piece of much grace, serenity, and emotion. Reminding of the musical mood of such OST tracks as the ones from Jeremy Soule for the Elder Scrolls games, this beautiful and deep musical experience would fit very well as a BGM during a stroll in Nature, or a contemplation as we lay down among the lush sceneries depicted by Shamanguli’s art, meditating in blissful solitude and feeling powerful emotions from the music.
A song perhaps about the adventurous spirit from Dungeons and Discords and that us RPG players know well, A Symphony Of Two’s new release delights once again with an original progression and a definite BGM value, making for another Orchestral treat from the duo.
