[P@D] SDreamExplorerS – The Empathy Herself | Symphonic Black Metal / Progressive Metal

Enigma has bring us soo many awesome tunes, The Empathy Herself it’s one of them! The mix between symphonic elements, amazing progressions and black metal typical screaming vocals and drum usage, makes this track an amazing Symphonic Black Metal experience with Progressive Metal influence. Soul Strings did an amazing job on this track, with the massive instrumentation and production plus with the vocal performance, mixing screaming with clean vocals, sometimes with effects. The lyrics tell a story, that what I love in Soul Strings’ tracks, they have something to tell.

[P@D] PrinceWhateverer – Shrouded Integrity (feat. IMShadow007) | Metal

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!



Elias Frost – Banished | Symphonic Gothic Metal

A gorgeous ode to Luna and the fateful events around her banishment to the moon that we are all familiar with, Banished is full of Elias’ mighty talent at strong and emotional vocals, all while carrying a powerful progression including choruses and an epic guitar solo part. Icing on the cake, the track also fittingly covers William Anderson’s Luna’s Theme from the show, that you can hear in BGMs such as Your Own Shadow from the episode Bloom and Gloom.


[P@D] Velvet R. Wings & SDreamExplorerS – Freedom Reclaimed | Symphonic Power Metal

Epic metal coming from the latest P@D album, Rebirth! This time the amazing trio Soul Strings, Velvet and Andy Feelin (on the production) made an epic track about how to deal with our hardships and how to not let them make us suffer. Amazing vocals, amazing instrumentation and inspiring lyrical work. This song is definitely one of the best of the album!

Frozen Night – Cosmic Dream | Symphonic Metal

Frozen Night is back with another one of his masterpieces! Cosmic Dream evokes visions of soaring through the aether on wings of starlight. He perfectly blends atmospheric effects and burning guitars into a distilled draught of energy. Throughout the song, it’s easy to picture Celestia flying through the ionosphere, casting her mighty spell to raise the sun once more.


Rockin’Brony – Winter Wrap Up (covering SHAICO / Daniel Ingram) | Symphonic Metal

Inspired by an old cover of the show’s first big hit (originally produced by SHAICO), Rockin’Brony re-creates Winter Wrap Up as a brilliant, symphonic instrumental. RB’s always top notch guitar soloing ability is really on display here, with several layers of great guitar work and shredding interspersed through the track. The drums are on point for the upbeat style and the bells really ring out the top-end of the mix for an extremely fun take on the beloved classic!


[P@D] PrinceWhateverer – This Duality (feat. Frozen Night & Sable Symphony) | Metal

In a trifecta of talent, the royal metal-head Prince Whateverer once again teams up with Sable Symphony and this time with orchestral mastermind Frozen Night to bring us this heavy jam, featured on the new compilation album Ponies at Dawn – Rebirth. Describing the harsh contrast of his own perfect, fantasy world and his less-than-perfect reality, Whateverer provides his top-notch vocals and guitar licks accompanied by Sable Symphony’s always on-point harmonies. In a great surprise, Frozen Night features in this track with his symphonic elements adding an incredible and epic twist on PW’s signature metal style.


Rockin’Brony – Open Up Your Eyes (covering Daniel Ingram) | Symphonic Metal

Editor’s note: Hooray, his channel is back, we can post this now!

Rockin’Brony delivers an amazing cover of one of my favorite songs from the movie! And the genre/concept for the recreation of the songs was pretty well chosen. Symphonic Metal is a really complex genre and a amazing experience listening to!

Rockin’s vocals are really amazing, the way that he delivers emotion and dedication to the vocals it’s clearly awesome, the symphonic elements of the cover are really well performed as well as the drums. All the song parts are really well performed, including the symphonic solo and the awesome guitar solo, one of the principal characteristics of Rockin’s tracks, amazing and headbanging guitar solos!

Amazing cover you done here, keep up the good work my friend!
