Rockin’Brony’s cover of this fandom classic is truly spectacular. The original was already a powerful, moving composition, but this cover applied a certain extra energy to it. Rockin’Brony, as his name implies, excels at this sort of music.
Orchestral elements, a lot of deep emotions and Till Lindemann-like vocals, this is how I describe Elias Frost’s most recent cover! One of the best artists that the brony fandom has gave us this days.
When I listen to this song, the only thing I think is RAMMSTEIN! Oh my, this is really like one of Rammstein’s ballads like Mutter,Mein Herz Brennt or Ohne Dich, the symphonic elements, the drum work and the rough and kickass vocals give big Rammstein vibes! I really love how Elias re-imagined the song and how he give to the song the feels of loss, sadness and mourning. A really emotional and headbanging surprise!
Reverbrony hasn’t lost his touch, and delivers a massive progressive concentrate of Symphonic Metal epicness, extra heavy! Encompassing the theme of epic battles, Among the Brave does an amazing job at representing that side of the show, with violins, guitars, and drums all contributing to create this masterpiece of sound!
Instrumental metal, now that’s a genre I’m not well acquainted with! But SDreamExplorerS definitely makes a case for me to get to know it better. An eerie, foreboding intro leads into an energetic and dark song. SDreamExplorS’s skill on guitar is amazing, as is the overall composition. This piece is a vision into a world scarred by flame and light. Come along and see the devastation!
Rejoice everypony, The L-Train is back with a new collaboration shining with the power of Friendship, and this one is about none other than our beloved Princess of Friendship herself! As we are graced by an amazing intrumental of many Metal and Orchestral progressive wonders the L-Train way, FenPony unleashes incredible vocals that are as great-sounding as they are catchy and cool. Choir vocals from The L-Train are also adding extra epicness to the song, which is definitely a masterpiece to come back to!
Here it is, what’s bound to be the best Ponies At Dawn album yet. With each new album comes both a new selection of artists as well as some of the great ones who have been around for a while – something that is in my opinion the best balance when compiling brony music.
The album is available completely for free on Bandcamp, or you pay whatever amount you wish for it. You can expect to see many of the songs from it posted on the site in the coming days and weeks!
Frozen Night has remade one of their older songs to give it a fresh feel with better production and newer orchestral instruments. Lunar Eclipse II starts off with a hauntingly lonely solo piano, and layer upon layer of choir sounds, strings, and drums are brought in one by one to turn it from orchestral lament into a guitar-led piece.
Something a little different than the usual stuff we get from Reverbrony, more orchestral with additional metal than metal with additional orchestral, but great nonetheless. I’m always amazed how he is able to consistently release new music every 2 weeks! If you want metal on a regular basis, then Reverbrony is definitely needed in your YouTube subscriptions.
Back with another amazing score, GhostXb has crafted a versatile and complex soundtrack for the Trinity series of artwork by Legacy 350. The composition combines electric guitar, hella sci-fi synth arpeggios, choirs, and other orchestral elements to create something really grand.
Brace yourselves everypony, masterpiece ahoy! Here we’ve got a quite stunning Progressive/Symphonic/Folk metal beauty from Ponysphere, putting a beautiful and passionate vision to reality with the help of the amazing BriLizy T providing utterly gorgeous vocals, Shurrikane‘s orchestral talents, DivinumX rocking a guest solo, and Secret Metal helping with mixing and mastering. The 8-minutes song has got everything to stand as a timeless gem, from the delightful progression to the masterful instrumentations of both heavy parts empowered by powerful vocals and soft parts sublimated by choruses and piano play. As for the cover art by Flarescale, it completes the whole and adds to the “concept” feel while reminding of cover arts from Folk Metal bands such as Korpiklaani (or from some Prog Rock bands of old).
