Long live Prog! Rinnie expanded on Lunar Drift’s love of the genre by covering Chaos & Harmony themed around Discord, and this new interpretation is presenting new progressive wonders and ideas that certainly would make the God of Chaos proud. So glad that Rinnie is covering other brony songs in addition to show songs!!
There’s been many covers of The Spectacle over the years, and Koron Korak is the latest one to do this! His more symphonic take on the original adds strong live drums, a distorted guitar track and even a violin as the lead instrument, replacing Lena Hall’s voice. You don’t wanna miss out on this one, since it’s a… spectacle!
Vivix has such an appreciated signature Alt. Rock sound and every time he releases a new pony song it’s always a bliss! Sanctuary is all about Zephyr Breeze’s character depth and it’s such an interesting theme to go for. It makes this song quite deep, all while feeling so underground!
Rinnie’s latest cover from the show is of Celestia’s Ballad, one of the more memorable numbers from season 3. The added guitars and drums add a new feeling to the original, complimenting Celestia’s voice. The overall sound feels like something from the 80s thanks to the electronic drum sounds and additional keyboard riffs towards the end, and the original audio from the episode where she transforms (without the visuals, mind you) adds a lot of suspense!
So Francis Vace and PegasYs. You love the Mighty Mighty Bosstones so much that you made a Rainbow Dash inspired Ska punk track for P@D: Ignite? Well far out dudes!. At Track 52. The Duo known as the Pegskasisters come flying back with an uptempo track of what it seems like, the Pegasus ponies of ponyville seeing how far Rainbow Dash will go with her flying skill. The lyrics by PegasYs are so fun and catchy. Making references of kinds of RD’s skill of flying over the 9 seasons of the show. Francis Vase does the amazing part of the role of a whole ska band with all of the elements of Big Band and Punk rock. The man is called a legend of instrumentals for a reason, and does not disappoint here. There is even a breakdown of hard punk riffs that ends the track on a Sonic Rainboom! As always, This Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
Fans of ’80s and ’90s hard rock music will not be uncomfortable listening to Acouste Wholenote’s new rock piece named Fashionably Late. Basing its lore off of Rarity, this song sports sharp drums acting as the foundation for the classic duo of bass and distorted guitar to riff its groovy motifs everywhere. In even further embracement of the hard rock spirit, there is a hauntingly melodic guitar solo introduced at the heights of this song. If there’s anything good that this lockdown has brought us, it’s music like this!
Glimmer song! The 24th track from Ponies At Dawn: Ignite is Fly My Kite, one of four appearances from 4everfreebrony on the album! The song showcases a mellow nature of what it’s like to just sit back and fly a kite through Starlight’s perspective, thinking of her friends and coming to terms with her flaws, past and present. The music is calm and oddly cheery, including xylophone sounds and even a mandolin solo. Glimmer song!
The Luna Ticks made a comeback at the end of last year and submitted a song for Ponies At Dawn – Ignite. Alcohol Like Oxygen is sung from the perspective of a character whose friend tends to go a bit overboard in the alcohol department, Berry Punch for instance. It can be seen as a sequel to Complication that came out four years ago. The instrumental is just what Quicksilver‘s style is: guitars and bass that rock hard, with a special note here on the mixing of the drums that include live-like panning. The vocals from Quicksilver and Francis Vace are full of energy and passion as always — the Luna Ticks in essence.
Raise your hand if you’re late to party about the Wastelands Wailers. *This writer does*. But its no matter. The first time hearing Haymaker and Brittney Church was refreshing. You’re treated to classic rock and roll with very well sung lyrics. About a pair of lovebirds trying to get by in the wastelands of Equestria. Long time fans of this group will know that their music is based off the Fallout Equestria fanfic series, and the work done by them for OvermareStudios. The guitars are very smooth, gritty and romantic. The track is a throwback to the 80’s style rock and romance like someone like Bruce Springsteen would do. It’s nice P@D Ignite still tries to put all kinds of genre’s on their albums. Classic rock is nice art that should be done more, way more. As always, This Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
In a futuristic dystopian world, bronies armed with pony passion are humanity’s last hope! Ardeleiz brings that epic story to life with this Experimental Rock treat filled with pony vocal samples and such a blissful guitar sound, both giving hope!
