Vylet Pony – Cadence For The Dying | Orchestral Electronic

Another release from Vylet Pony’s Mystic Acoustics album, Cadence For The Dying is an ambitious amalgamation of a wide variety of ideas, with orchestral, synthpop, soundtrack, EDM and ambient themes all well represented here. Orchestral swells, a strong vocal performance and a powerful chord-filled drop section all combine to make a really cool piece.

iblank2apples – Flutterwander | Synthwave / Future

A Fluttershy song! A really chilling and amazing song brought by iblank2apples!
The synth work is amazing, along with the leads and drops creations! The vocal chops used from the classic song sung by Fluttershy – So Many Wonders – are really amazing! This song is really sweet and adorable! I’m really thinking seeing a video in A State of Sugar with this song! Also the cover art, I love it! Sooooo cute!

Additional review from Makenshi:
Start of Makenshi’s writeup
Expanding in new musical directions, iblank2apples presents us another treat from his recent streak (and it sounds like it’s not over yet!), delivering gorgeous sounds and melodies, a mellow and Synthwave-y mood, and Fluttersamples from So Many Wonders that can definitely shape into any kind of use! Empowered by the might effect of that powerful artwork by Ashura924, this release delights as much as a sugary Fluttercocktail!

Elias Frost – Mad Twience (Covering Daniel Ingram) | Synthpop / New Wave

Russian musician Elias Frost returns with a 80’s Synthpop / New Wave cover of one of the songs from the Equestria Girls shorts.

Elias Frost’s vocals capacity fits with this Synthpop instrumental, proving also that Elias is a good player and also a good vocalist. This cover really will take you on a journey through the 80’s New Wave scene! You really will enjoy and love this amazing cover, if you are into the popular rock music of the beginnings of the 80’s. Elias Frost is an experimentalist in the rock/metal genre, always coming with new genres for his tracks and this cover proves it! All that robotic vocals, I love them!

[P@D] Flittzy – You And I | Alternative Dance / Alternative Pop

Another great track from the newest and awesome P@D album: Guardians. Flittzy bring us a great tune reminding me of 90’s music acts such as Primal Scream. This tune, which talks about the relation between Twilight and Princess Luna, has everything for becoming the best song on this great album full of surprises! First the vocals are well performed, Flittzy does an awesome job singing and we already know that! Second is the writing capacity of Flittzy, those lyrics were really cool, awesome and with some really meaningful messages. Third is the mixing and instrumentation, the instrumental is very good and the mix between the guitars and the drum machine was pretty awesome, don’t forget the mix between the instrumental and the vocals that was pretty kickass also!

Don’t forget to buy or download the full Guardians to listen and admire other artists from this lovely fandom! I LOVE YOU ALL ’cause You and I take part in something greater!

Viricide Filly – Back From Reality | Album | Electronic


FINALLY! After 3 years of hard work and production, British musician Viricide Filly releases her 5th album. Bringing us a mix of incredible textures and melodies that are really inspiring and incredible, making the album worth more than just 1 listen! Really, listen to this album more than 5 times! Because this is really amazing!

Now, what I can say about this amazing masterpiece? First, Viricide’s robotic vocals in songs like “Stuck In The Sky” (available on video) are very well mix with the instrumental and the lyrics of the songs are also quite awesome! Second, I love a lot Viricide’s experiments at each track, the intro track is well performed, and also the experiments at “Vanishing Point” (available on Cider Party) are really incredible and gives an atmospheric look to the track. Third, this album actually tells a story about Viricide’s OC, Eleanor, making a great and inspiring concept album.

I recommend this album to everyone, without exceptions! Also, listen to this more than 5 times, please! Give Viricide the feedback that she deserves for her 3 years hard work!

You can download the album from Viricide’s Bandcamp or stream the whole thing on YouTube.
