From the charity album Seeds of Kindness 6 ~ A Change of Heart, this original and very creative piece from SDreamExplorerS sure conveys a lot of kindness through its soft instrumental full of tender guitar play. Much inspired, it lays out a nice groove in a masterful way, with bass, guitar and percussions all contributing to the heartwarming atmosphere.
This time taking on the emotional I’ll Fly, MetalPony delivers an awesome and rocking cover full of powerful guitar riffs and lovely vocals, and with drums empowered by Djohn Mema. A wonderful take on the memorable song that moved the community and inspired so many pony musicians!
Another YouTube release from Amity, let’s welcome EM120X and SDreamExplorerS’ track that certainly stands as a masterpiece of fusion of genres and originality. With such an epic and intriguing title, it blends Electronic and Rock talents from both musicians to create a stunning progressive experience of sounds and melodies that feels like an epic tale, or a spiritual journey. May you be discovering or re-discovering this track, I hope it could have any sort of positive powerful effect to you. It sure has the potential, and it is fan works like these that I live for.
A wonderful surprise full of progressive greatness, this new piece from Night Blaze in tribute to the alicorn sisters builds a strong instrumental blending many genres and making for an unique OST-like track. Orchestral instruments, but also guitars including a bass, drums, and those synths melodies that are so reminiscing of J-RPG Soundtrack. The part at 4:46 is especially epic and emotional for me. Definitely a masterpiece, and a magnificent tribute to Celestia and Luna!
It’s not often that we’re getting pony Groove Metal, and it sure is a feast as Reverbrony unleashes his talent and creativity once again to treat us with a heavy and delightful musical experience! Empowering the epic battle from the cover art with even more epicness, the track relentlessly amazes with successive masterful guitar riffs providing a powerful progression with even a guitar solo in the last part, and an incredible drums play that is equally heavy. Another masterpiece from Reverbrony!
A new fine piece by MetalPony, this heavy Post-Hardcore track delivers a much heartfelt and refined tribute to Luna and the events of S05E13 Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep. Through both heavy and soft vocal parts, and an equally amazing instrumental, MetalPony lays out the story in much force and beauty. Once again, the power of fan music made toward an episode that moved you surfaces, and shines bright through the darkness!
Finally a rightfully inspired song about Rarity’s antics in S05E15 Rarity Investigates! And we can definitely count on Ponysphere and Secret Metal to deliver all the Metal greatness in full force. Blissful lead guitar solos, solid rythm guitar riffs and drums, tasty bass, and amazing vocals all around from both musicians, all give to this track much power in pure Metal style. A much welcomed addition, much love to Ponysphere and Secret Metal! Also kudos to the MLP staff for what they’ve done. May that fateful scene continue to inspire!
Luck Rock’s back with a more acoustic-oriented piece that focuses on Luna, with some lovely orchestral elements helping to complement the guitar, and steady vocals.
Here comes one of my favorite releases!! For the third and final act of the story initiated with The Eternal Reign of King Sombra, Mane In Green composed a 18-minutes track!! For me who uses to listen to some 20-minutes Prog Rock tracks, this is a real delight (and it does have hints of Prog Rock, progression-wise but also musically at times). And For Equestria We Rise is not just long and progressive, it has its own storyline, too! And the music fits so well with it! You can get the details in the description, with timestamps for the different parts, and there’s additional lines appearing in the video, along very fitting artworks. Mane In Green truly went all-out for this final chapter, and the result is nothing short of breathtaking, combining the musician’s talents at both Orchestral and Rock music, with even powerful organs and choruses in some parts bringing even more epicness. A progressive masterpiece and fusion of genres, empowered by an inspired story and a wonderful heartfelt message at the end. Truly one of Mane In Green’s finest works, if not simply the artist’s biggest masterpiece. You definitely want to sub to Mane In Green for more amazing content, and also don’t forget to show your support to the artist for his work and feelings!
Something I didn’t expect to see, but am definitely happy to hear! Shifting away from his usual fare of show song covers, Elias Frost delivers a cover of the piece recently put out by Duo Cartoonist. It’s decidedly heavier, with a pretty metal atmosphere and some growl-y tones to some of the vocals, but the traditionally sung chorus is where this shines the most for me, as it works brilliantly with Elias’ voice.
