What do you get when you get a metal-head fanatic, an expert collaborator, and the king of European metal bass? Answer: A group cover that was fated to happen. Stemming from Romeo Nightinamare’s desire to ponify Guardians of Asgaard by Amon Amarth, they teamed up with Koron Korak and Soul Strings to give us this powerful story of those who would guard Canterlot from Queen Chrysalis and her “cannon fodder’s army”. The expert guitars really pop out in front of subtly brilliant drums. Mix that with S-tier bass action and some deep, DEEP vocals and you’ve got a cinematic war song!

The Combine – Stand Alone (feat. Feather & Rhyme Flow) | Hip-Hop
What does this fandom, the friends that you make while you are a part of it, the things that you create while you are here mean to you, and the growth that you make personally, and how much of it will you take with you if you leave? Whatever your answers are to those complicated questions, the creators of this song understand your point of view and actions. These topics are explored at first through the metaphor of Luna’s banishment to the moon and later more directly, and it serves as a heartfelt call for introspection and support for all existing and former fandom members. The Combine has packaged this message wonderfully into a song that is, both in terms of the chorus and the overall song structure, reminiscent of Eminem’s song “Stan”, with Rhyme Flow providing a heartfelt appeal by Luna to Celestia regarding her banishment to the moon which morphs into a message to remaining community members and to those who have left the fandom imploring that they value their time and experiences here. Feather (original channel/more recent channel), who has herself moved on from the fandom, provides the beautiful chorus vocals for Luna. It’s all packaged in this great lyric video that shows Luna trapped on the moon with a view of the World. Please give this song a listen, give the message your consideration, and remember that you are loved and valued no matter what your answers to these questions are!
SeriousDamir – Big Iron (Parody) | Country
So, everypony, today we’ve got ourselves something special. SeriousDamir brings us this amazing Parody of “Big Iron”, a song from Fallout: New Vegas, and what could be better than turning that song into a Fallout Equestria song! But enough of that–let’s get straight to the song! The song starts out with a lovely acoustic solo that first made me think of Avicii, and believe me when I say that what we’re about to get is just as awesome! Quickly the vocals set in (everything is ponified, of course) and everything is accompanied by the guitar and backing vocals. The song’s lyrics take the original version, in which a ranger is after a guy called Texas Red, and change things up so that Littlepip is after the enclave colonel Autumn Leaf and her trusty “Big Iron”, who is of course Little Macintosh. Pip travels through town after town, all the while accompanied by the guitar and backing vocals, and everywhere she goes they know her as the “Hellmare”. She travels all the way to Red Eye’s cathedral, and in the end she not only finds her target but also Red Eye himself. After everything is said and done we end with some more awesome guitar.

SlightlyAmiss – I Write Songs Not Fanfics (I Write Sins Not Tragedies Parody) | Pop Punk
A friend sending you fun lyrics, sometimes it’s all you need to have that spark of inspiration leading to great things. And in this case a tasteful parody of Panic At The Disco’s song, featuring Sakairi’s lyrics, SlightlyAmiss’ rocking vocals, and a blissful rock instrumental that will make you feel good to be a brony!
Somewhat explicit lyrics warning!
MelodyBrony – I’m Not Gay (feat. Acouste Wholenote and Blackened Blue) (Covering PrinceWhateverer & Djohn Mema) | Pop Punk
Lol! What a way to revive an absolute fandom CLASSIC!! The original parody of My Chemical Romance’s “I’m Not Okay” took the fandom by storm last year, and this cover does a great job of keeping the energy going! The more instrumental focus makes for a wild and new experience, especially if you liked the original. I do wonder how Slightly Amiss feels about this… I love this fandom XD just remember: it’s not gay 😉
Luck Rock – Pony Life (Friends Parody) | Power Pop
Short yet so important, this parody of Friends in response to that reference in Pony Life is very appreciated, and Luck Rock was the pony musician for the job! Evershade even made a mini PMV to accompany the song, and overall this new Pony Life fan work is just SO lovely and awesome! Give it up to the creators everypony! I wish that more works like these get made!
James Kelly, Propmaster & Fiaura The Tank Girl – Angel’s Gonna Cut You Down (feat. Jesse Nowacking) (God’s Gonna Cut Em Down Parody) | Country
Today we’ve got ourselves a song by Shotgun Angel Productions, the people working on the Audio Book Fallout Equestria: Dead Tree. This song is a re-imagination of Johnny Cash’s God’s Gonna Cut Em Down and even though some lines are similar it’s nonetheless it’s own track. The lyrics talk about no matter how far you run, no matter what you do to hide it, one day all the ponies who did wrong will get what’S coming to them, the lying gear trader, the evil raider will all get their due. This song is sure to make you whip and sing along, it’s just this great, and not to a small part because of the awesome singing voice of Nowacking.
Round Trip – Pony Life The Musical (warning: very deep) :'( | Piano Ballad
Round Trip is up to their brand of stick pony nonsense again! You have to love their humorous takes on MLP! Pony Life is off and running, and ya knew it was only a matter of time before this was coming. The song pokes fun at Fluttershy’s obsession with the Equestrian celebrity Finn Tastic (Watch: Pony Life episodes “The Trail Less Trotten” and “Death of a Sales-pony” for context), and Round Trip amusingly touches on this subject and adds some clarity. Her obsession drives Flutters to run her friends into the ground getting trail badges and selling insane amounts of cookies. Round Trip just fills in the blanks with what her friends are thinking and their fun singing voice is perfect for having some fun with Fluttershy and throwing in some common sense for the mare “to boot”! Just watch and have a fun time! As always this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
