Prepare yourselves, everypony! Winter is coming! Altius Volantis’ latest track is the official anthem for the Snowfall Ponymeet of 2020, located in Poland. The song starts out with an orchestral intro that builds up before culminating with Twilight announcing that Winter is on the way. We’re then thrust into another build up, this one mostly consisting of electronic synths and drums, eventually ending with a wind sound along with some bells, giving the track a really Wintery feeling.
Another genre within the fandom that needs more love is talented hard rock and metal musicians within the fandom. You have your guys like PrinceWhateverer and Cyril the Wolf. There is so much more out there for everyone to check out. Like this dude from the UK. Fellow colleague Blackened Blue. He put his best hoof forward in his first official EP featuring 5 tracks of pure heavy metal goodness.

MirroredReality returns with their first track of the year: a piece about the Kirin, aptly titled… Kirin. It’s a psytrance track with plenty of tribal elements that fit their little tribe perfectly well. Ambient nature noises, orchestral instruments and tribal drums are added into the mix, making for a unique change of pace from typical trance music. The part in the middle is especially noteworthy, right from the soft breakdown to the reintroduction of EDM elements. This track will make you feel relaxed yet bouncy at the same time!
The Brony Rap Hip-Hop scene has always been full of talent from the start. Expressing their love in the art of impressive pony rhymes. From a show that inspired this flow of love and friendship.

Let’s let some love out into the air, shall we? Of Love and Devotion is a purely relaxing orchestral piece that serves as a tribute to the Princess of Love while also being a late Valentine’s Day gift. While a slow track with mainly strings and an oboe leading it, it gives off peaceful vibes, fitting as the soundtrack to the peaceful loving land that is the Crystal Empire.
He’s not dead yet. Words from the stallion himself. Underdog is Kozmos’ first original track in a year, and along for the ride is Doodled who delivers an extra verse towards the end, and Technickel Ted, the producer of the beat. Both rappers bring forth a braggadocios verse each, also showing that after all this time, Kozzy hasn’t lost his touch. Welcome back to the grind, Koz!
We’ve got ourselves the first and title track from MelodyBrony’s debut album, Origins. This track is a speedy rock piece about Starlight Glimmer, with CadetRedShirt providing vocals. The drums hit hard and the overall tone of the guitars suits Cadet’s voice well, like an early Paramore song. MB keeps proving to be one of the fandom’s upcoming heavy stars.
An early preview of the upcoming ASOS: Brownie album. We have a high dose of energy for you all. Energy that brings you back to the days of playing racing games with your friends in on an weekend! But now rev this up with a taste of Equestria! This also brings into the play the genre known as Complextro a subgenre of electro house. This with the taste of chiptune. You have classic vibe racing on an epic race track with everything on the line, with some pony magic. Special appearance by Tom!. You’ll know it when you hear it in the mix of pony chops. As always this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
This track is best described as INFINITE BOOKHORSE! This (mostly) upbeat song is 100% electronic and dubstep music, with tons of Twilight sound bites worked in. It gets emotional towards the middle and at the very end, and this track definitely serves as both a tribute to Twilight’s character as a whole, and as a really epic and fun song!
And so, we’ve come to the sixth and final track from Francis Vace’s Horses In Real Life EP. With Pinkie being as hyperactive as she is, a pony like her deserves a fast track, and that’s exactly what Bright Pink Horse is. Pinkie’s brought her rambunctious party animal attitude to the real world and can’t seem to stop dancing! The music is fast paced and full of crunchy guitars and trumpets that fit her hyperactivity perfectly. An exciting end to an equally exciting EP!
