A prime example of a perfect time to drink the most popular drink down in Equestria. Jyc Row and Francis Vace show exactly how you should do it, with good and strong vocals to guide you through. This absolutely rocks! (no pun intended) Not only that, it’s also the perfect quality of good taste. In other words, it’s also worth giving your ears a listen as they are being drenched in such awesomeness!
This track is available as part of the Ponies at Dawn album Guardians!
The recent song from the 14th episode of the Season 7 has inspired a lot of musicians to make remixes and covers. And Osoch is one of that musicians! But why I’m happy about this cover? Because it’s a Heavy Metal cover! So up your irons and get your head ready for some headbanging and moshpits because we’re getting the Metal arena!
Osoch is one of the newest names in the brony metal scene, with only 4 recent songs (all covers, including this one), Osoch has the potential to become one of the hottest names in the brony metal/rock scene. And this cover really shows Osoch talent to re-imagine the song and make by his view!
The drums are really well performed, and that bass flip before the Rainbow Dash verse is really amazing! The guitar riffs performed reminded me of the Modern Metal acts and some of the modern Metalcore acts such as Three Days Grace, Killswitch Engage, Parkway Drive, Flaw (I’m not kidding here, Flaw is a band) and actually when the symphonic elements of the original song combined with the guitar songs reminded me of Apocalyptica and Lacuna Coil! The philter and the reverb used in Pinkie Pie’s vocals is also very well done and then the headbanging and smashing guitar solo makes everything awesome and cooler! And then you realize that it’s the end of the song and you wanted more. Extended versions for this covers are really requested? If they aren’t, it should be requested!
Also this song is available on Rock Farm! The Cider Party for Rock, Metal, Punk, Jazz, Blues and Folk pony songs!
Quicksilver releases an amazing EP with a lot of awesome tracks with a lot of Pop/Skate/Emo Punk influences. This EP is really short, so I guess that I’ll do a track by track review. Catch it after the break!
Russian musician Elias Frost returns with a 80’s Synthpop / New Wave cover of one of the songs from the Equestria Girls shorts.
Elias Frost’s vocals capacity fits with this Synthpop instrumental, proving also that Elias is a good player and also a good vocalist. This cover really will take you on a journey through the 80’s New Wave scene! You really will enjoy and love this amazing cover, if you are into the popular rock music of the beginnings of the 80’s. Elias Frost is an experimentalist in the rock/metal genre, always coming with new genres for his tracks and this cover proves it! All that robotic vocals, I love them!
Among the great news of the Wonderbolts performing at BronyCon (the gig should be happening around now), they also had another surprise for us, and it is a mighty sweet and tasteful Reggae Rock cover of the emotional You’re In My Head Like a Catchy Song! Galen’s gorgeous vocals are leading a blissful instrumental where many influences collide for a result full of passion and dedication from the multi-talented pony rock band. Wonderbolts groupies unite!
Coming from the concept album The Princess Variations, Sprocket delivers a 6 minutes track full of emotion and commitment in the track, that I must say, it’s amazing!
The first part reminds me of Supermassive Black Hole by Muse, then Sprocket vocals are soo Blues vocals, also I can feel in the second part of the song some Blues Rock influence with the mix between the guitar riff and the keyboard sounds. Sprocket vocals are really flexible from highs look-a-like David Bowie and the vox vocals look like some really cool modern Alternative Dance band. The guitar riff is really amazing, so chill, along with the bass that is listenable are is so satisfying.
6 minutes of pure awesomeness! Listen to the track, is really amazing! Also, don’t forget to download/buy The Princess Variations on his bandcamp!
Coming from the latest Ponies At Dawn album: Guardians, the supergroup consisted by the multi-instrumentalist Quicksilver and the iconic vocalist Francis Vace made a 2 minutes pop punk with skate punk feel track inspired by Rainbow Dash.
The mastering made on the track is amazing, also here we can see the lyrical capacity of Francis Vace and that his vocals are very iconic in this fandom. Quicksilver composition for the instrumental is also on point, the guitar riffs and the bassline plus the awesome drums are very well performed. This track reminds me of Skate Punk/Pop Punk/Melodic Hardcore acts like Sum 41, Pennywise, Bad Religion, Green Day and The Offspring.
Damn son, why you didn’t download Guardians yet? Make that now (Or if you are rich, buy it).
While seeing PegasYs’ name on a rock production might come as a surprise to some, Francis Vace is quite the guarantor for quality. And indeed, On Your Own is excellent proof that some unexpected team-ups will sometimes yield results that are very well worth some attention. Pega’s brilliant vocal work, coupled with Vace’s vast experience in composition & recording within their genre of choice, makes this track a both contemplative and energetic afternoon jam, with a guitar duet to top it off—an absolute must-hear for every fan of Starlight.
Get On Your Own as well as the rest of P@D: Guardians on bandcamp now!
The opener track of a new EP from Quicksilver dropping this weekend, Malefactor has a resolutely Punk theme conducted masterfully in a Punk Rock arrangement not lacking of Hard Rock vibes. A musical homage to Gilda’s point of view in her debut episode Griffon the Brush Off from S1, the song definitely expresses her feelings with force using the power of rock music and it is such a delight!
Coming from the hottest compilation album right now: Lycan Dese Beats 3 we have this rocking track about the fanfiction My Little Dashie done by the supergroup composed by StealingShadez and SlightlyAmiss, featuring the screaming capacity of Sable Symphony (previously MetalPony).
This track has really a Bullet From My Valentine feeling, the guitar riffs done by Slightly, the clean vocals done by Shadez and the harsh one done by Sable, everything has a BFMV feel. This is really good, I recommend if you are fan of Melodic Metalcore acts that mixes clean with harsh vocals!
Download or buy Lycan Dese Beats 3 in a bandcamp near your seat.
