Crusader – Only Me | Pop Rock

Crusader is back again with another vocal delight! Big Mac has always had a special place in our hearts in this fandom. Crusader’s voice just gives this song some extra flavor to such a sweet song. I say this because the lyrics tell Big Mac’s throughs and emotions pretty well from Brotherhood Social. Feeling like you can’t fill those shoes anymore for your little sister. When you know that Applejack has done so much more then you have. To have doubt that you don’t matter anymore. Crusader’s voice and acoustics tell that story in such an uplifting way. I’m glad someone made a song about this special moment. We all would like a big brother like Big Mac. His efforts, His hard work. His Love for his family. Doing crazy wacky shenanigans. All to show AppleBloom that he still can be there for her. Much like my buddy LuckRock. Crusaders songwriting is his greatest strength. It shows. Its a heartfelt catchy tune your be humming to yourself. As I always say. This Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

[P@D] MEQA – Hydia | Rock / Dubstep

This fandom with their creativity just keeps on blowing my mind. This track by MEQA is a very rock meets techno flavor. It’s hard with a techno punch to it. Its starts out with this classic garage rock. Then the dubstep violently comes in with that sound and does not let up. In between, you got some cool symbol Melody and drum work. Before that hard electric Melody slaps you right the face. P@D is the home the musical diversity of this fandom for a reason. Decide for yourself as I always ask.

dBPony – Risk | Hard Rock

For this first time in four years. DBPONY come speeding back into the fandom’s music scene. Another first time listening for myself. The song itself comes with a very wise life message. It’s very easy to look at your life and feel that you’re stuck. Feeling complacent. Many in this fandom felt like that before we found something like wonderful brightly colored ponies. Feeling lost until this fandom made us feel found. The fast hard rock that pounds this track sends a message. “Got for it. Take a chance.” Because you never know until you try. I can honestly say taking a chance on this fandom has brought so much joy into many of our lives. A very nice return track from DBpony. As always, This Qilin asks you to judge for yourself for this song.

Narokath – Dead Wings of Grace | Album | Progressive Metal / Orchestral

An interesting concept album, coming from the swedish one-man-band Narokath. An album telling a double story between two worlds: an individual and personal point of view about life and feelings about it, where each listener is invited to do their own understandings of it and a story set in a darker world of Equestria.

Sharing nostalgia and brony feelings, Djohn Mema’s collab with SlightlyAmiss is very reflective of what makes us special as a community, and you can just feel all the genuine love that has been poured into this track and its message. It feels like a warm hug to all the musicians mentioned, and all those lovely thoughts get marvelously expressed here with the upbeat guitar melodies and the emotional vocals. A masterpiece of emotion and music!

Evdog – Open Skies (feat. Francis Vace) (Covering EnsionD) | Alternative Rock

(You can hear classic Open Skies Here, and the Francis Wide Skies cover Here, This cover is a combo of both songs.)
My Celestia, how could I have missed such an inspiring song in this fandom! Shame on this dragon pony. If you liked how uplifting the original was. The kind of fandom song that makes tears form in your eyes. Then Evdog adds just bit more to the mix. The lyrics are still there, but its the added Hip-Hop that makes it much more special. The new lyrics now speak for Scoots as she learned how to fly. How she never look back. However, my friends listen to those words. Those words can be used in all walks of life itself. Just picture yourself overcoming your own odds in life. The music itself has this reggae vibe to it. Delightly it fits pretty well with the uplifting mood. Hip-Hop has always been a form of music that is best when it’s done with meaning, and songs such as this are proof. Judge for yourself as always.
