Chant of Immortality is such a classic from 4EverfreeBrony and it sounds relevant or even obligatory that a live version should see the light of day! The talented musician and singer does us the honor with this “Concert Version” designed to be played by a full band on stage, interpreting the original and its deep meaning anew along the gorgeous vocals. Hearing this live would be just so grand and epic, for an already epic song!
PrinceWhateverer continues to show why he is the king of brony metal in this tag team collaboration featured on Ponies at Dawn: Enigma. Utilizing some epic vocals from IMShadow007, this track has all the intensity and refined sound design that we know PW for. A great feature of Shrouded Integrity is the dramatic strings that carry the melody through the track and add a beautiful and almost tragic sense of desperation while the singers call out the subject character for the choices she makes. Another very well-structured composition, be sure to check out this track and the album it is from!
With how the EQG special & music video The Other Side is trending and making quite a sensation in the community, it’s no surprise that it’s inspiring pony musicians to answer the call, but it’s always such an unexpected delight! Elias Frost delivers in Swedish and Metal all the way, covering the original melodies in such a rocking way, and it’s such a bliss to experience, especially when we watched and loved the original! And Rarity!
Tasteful musical inspirations and meaningful reflections over S08E11 Molt Down are all over this new track from StealingShad3z, featuring the amazing GhostXb on vocals! An ode to the years passed and the fact that we are all growing older (and hopefully not colder!), this bittersweet Alt Rock tune is such a song of choice to come back to, when we come home cold and tired and warm our bones beside the fire…
For Nightmare Night, Peshka brewed a dark and haunting musical mixture from deep into the Everfree, just like Zecora would brew a potion! Music is much like alchemy, and this blend of atmosphere and melodies through guitars is certainly a very potent result!
Here we have a melancholic piece from Reverbrony and FritzyBeat. Themed around Princess Luna; moments before giving into the darkness, you can feel the sadness in the composition as her innocence is cut away, slice by slice, beneath Celestia’s Sun and majesty. Three years in the making its a song well worth the wait!
LaRaikaa (f.k.a. PsychGoth, BagpipeBrony) brings us all the way back to 2012 with a driving metal spin on his original synthy tune based on the fanfic My Roommate is a Vampire. Of course, the beautiful vocals from EileMonty and Nowacking bring even more flavor to the already very tasty djent-inspired instrumental. Whether LaRaikaa will return to do more horse tunes is unknown, but his return is lovely to see!
Well here is the perfect song to get into the Nightmare Night mood. PrinceWhateverer re-imagines the very familiar Nightmare Before Christmas hit to fit the pony holiday using his unique metal style, with the aid of his crew of friends. The many voices contribute amazingly with solo lines as well as haunting chorus parts (especially when they get to the la la-la-la crowd part). A perfect song for the end your October season, or just because you love a great song and parody – be sure to check out This is Nightmare Night!
It’s not just Nightmare Night, it’s also Trixie Day! And Arabesque Sympony made such a lovely cover of Trixie’s Tricks up My Sleeve from EQG2, in the spirit of the spooky night! Getting on stage to play along with Trixie, the pony musician not only covered the instrumental delightfully using the power of rock (including an amazing bass solo), but is also covering the song with his own vocals that are so cute and beautiful. Overall a very addictive cover that will make you want to sing along and raise your hooves, and cheer for Arabesque Sympony and Trixie!
As Nightmare Night draws near, it’s time to ROCK!! Quicksilver made such a high-energy and powerful theme for Flutterbat with much love, and you can just feel all that power as the mighty guitar riffs entrance you! It’s so easy to let yourself go and partake in the emotion from the music, in total freedom. Lead guitar, rythm guitar, bass guitar, and drums all create such a perfect harmony through the progression of this track, and it’s just pure bliss! Let us rock forever!!
