When you think of big, bold, and glorious, the image of Fulmen becomes an epic show of thunder and lightning! That hits you so hard and fast as the build to that epic guitar solo hits your ears; you feel you’re in the presence of a mighty king that looks and takes care of his lands and its people. The incredible score of power and glory that blends that mix of epic power metal and the pantheon of orchestral that would fire up anypony to follow King Fulmen into the deepest pits of Tartarus! Jyc Row again shows how it’s done by presenting a character by music! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
There is Drum & Bass, then there is Drum & Bass done by Tw3Lv3. Adding to the string of releases just electrifying Rainbow Dash tracks is this beauty done by the duo of Tw3Lv3 and Jalmaan on P@D Zenith. With the Melo harmonies done by these two, the blistering pace of beat will have you thinking about how you have grown stronger as lyrics will tell you that you are not the same! Dynamite track. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
Thrasher has the reputation of making some seriously hard-hitting metal over the past few P@D albums. His take on doing something on Tempest Shadow? Oh boy, how about playing up to Tempest’s cold and calculating temperament that leads to her killer instinct! The brake bones, hardcore metal screaming into your ears mixed with these waves of trance, with a taste of reggae, a fascinating but compelling fusion. It is just the picture you see of Tempest on another bounty she must take down for Equestria. This is wild on P@D Zenith. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
If you listened to P@D: Zenith, you may have heard this little track about Marble Pie. However, as BlueBrony has said performing this live with Koa: “This song is about anyone who feels like they struggle with self-worth or doesn’t belong.” The melodies build up from a soft piano to a most triumphant rock ballad that will indeed have you feeling like you do matter! Lyrics are just emotional and heart-felt of how genuine and beautiful Koa and BlueBrony sing with a message, Every brony who hears this can feel it in the very fiber of their beings. As always, This Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
In a fine exhibition on P@D: Zenith, the orchestral bronies community flexes its muscles to show how deep they are. As these five gentlemen show, a music sheet is only the blueprint. The same song with different elements and styles can have some beautiful results when you have creative music-making like this. A different story in tone and mood with how Princess Celestia had her first real encounter with Thorax and the reformed changelings just by how a song is composed! Delightful on the ears! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
When you’re the leader, “I don’t know” is not an option, even if you don’t have any answers.
The message of this song is beautiful and talks about the perspective of leaders, of which are expected to have all the answers even when they don’t. Forced to use temporary measures or distractions to avoid saying “I don’t know”.
A hopeful and thought provoking message mixed with a ballad of acoustic and piano; 4everfree knocks it out of the park once more!
This piece instantly grabs my attention with its repeating acoustic arpeggios and the beautiful piano melody accompanying it! The rises and falls of the melody are catchy and the overall song just fits Fluttershy’s vibe. Free and cheerful, and has that sense of scope and wonder that makes you want to explore the great outdoors!
Who doesn’t love a good sequel? Acting as the Bon Bon counterpart to a recent Lyra song, Background pt. 2 is a softer song that encapsulates her feelings for Lyra. The instrumentation is more minimal, leaving more room for Koa’s vocals and the words she sings, yet every part of the composition has its role and fits together nicely.
