Themed around the many sides of the Everfree Forest (more details in the description of the Bandcamp upload), Rhythm of the Forest is a surprising and inventive blend of many electronic and rock influences. We notably find Progressive Rock and Synthwave in the mix, with notes of Psychedelic Rock and the early electronic musicians’ sound. A blooming experiment shining in the dark like Poison Joke in the Everfree Forest, this gem of a track is expressing the many wonders of the forest in delightful musical ways.
An incredible new version of the original Lachryphagy, this Acoustic Mix focuses on expressing the mixed feelings you have when you realize the changeling’s right to simply feed themselves and follow their nature. Originally seen as villains, you start accepting them and feeling for them, thus offering them comfort and understanding, a warm lapse of solace in all the antagonism. And this track reflects that blissful time and those heart-warming feelings to perfection. Soft drums, bittersweet acoustic guitars, pure-hearted synths, and a switch to a divine part including an electric guitar solo, all convey so much emotion and match the concept in incredible beauty, proving once again eksoka’s incredible talent and vision like none other.
UCDP Brony’s latest track happens to be about Luna and some Cake! A fantastic song all around featuring quality drum work and radical guitar riffs. The song also includes a great guitar solo from Arthur Raulin. With inspirations from the likes of Dream Theater and 4/3 de Trio, UCDP Brony has created a wonderful track with a cute story! UCDP Brony produced this song for the French Pony Music Awards 2017.
“Gentlemen, I give you…MORE CORN!”
It’s fun, it’s silly, but it’s also pretty darn good. Get your fix of classic prog rock from Shinzm with this time-signature-changing bluesy piece that’s essentially a 4 minute guitar solo.
Other amazing track from the latest and hottest album from P@D: Guardians! Silver Note is one of that artists from this fandom that gets me vibes from other artists that I love! First Silver gave me Radiohead vibes on Stars and now for P@D, Silver gave me and probably everyone, Muse vibes! Shatter is a great tune reminding me of the old-school Muse albums such as Showbiz, The Origin of Symmetry and Absolution. The vocals, the guitar, the drums, the mixing quality, the lyrics, everything! Silver made this song with passion and with a theme that every brony loves! The battle between Tirek and Twilight!
Don’t forget to download or buy the whole album from P@D, Guardians! Last chance! Will you bow?
We don’t often get something that resembles the good ol’ Progressive Rock from the 70s/80s, and I would be tempted to label this Neo-Prog but there’s just some sweet, blissful Classic Rock vibe to it that can’t help making me feel nostalgic. This track has just the right sound, creative values, melodic structure, and progression, to make it an outstanding instrumental piece from the artist that is definitely a delight for Prog Rock fans like me. In Prog We Trust! (who’s going to this year’s festival?)
It’s interesting to see commissioned songs by certain artists; in my opinion it presents them with a chance to take on a theme or perhaps genre they normally wouldn’t have considered on their own. Here we have something commissioned to Reverbrony with the theme of time running out incorporated both into the theme and the soundscape of the song. And that bass tone is fantastic too, great production as always from Reverbrony!
While it still keeps that progressive element (no, not that Progressive Element) found in his songs, Reverbrony’s latest track takes a somewhat lighter approach to its soundscape. Less chunky guitar, more melodically diverse bass lines. Whether or not you prefer it to his heavier work, it’s always great to see some diversity and hear a bit of experimentation!
With a title somewhat evoking Trivium-ish Heavy Metal songs to me, this piece is surprisingly of the softests, with Reverbrony’s magic for creating unique, beautiful, and concept-centered tracks shining bright once again. Angelic piano melodies followed by gentle yet meaningful and powerful guitar play guide us along Fluttershy’s steps, encompassing the poetry from the cover art in a brand new way, perhaps reflecting the story of our favorite Nature-loving pegasus. A work of art in more ways than one!
Taking inspiration from gold bands of old, Ponysphere releases an excellent track of almost 10 minutes of rock greatness. Those who use to listen to 60s/70s/80s rock like me sure will appreciate those guitars and keyboard plays in Magic Parade which totally breathe the spirit of Classic Rock, and the track has different sections for each of the mane 6, too!
