The Belarussian artist and a hot name in the brony metal music scene SDreamExplorerS, also known as Soul Strings, bring us an album that is mostly inspired by the Swedish Death Metal movement.
The artist on the album description on YouTube says that Swedish Death Metal (Melodic especially) has inspired him to do this album, especially “The Jester Race” by In Flames. As a metal listener, I certainly could hear the “In Flames” influence on this album, particularly on the track “The First Alicorn” that is available on video. This album has incredible riffs, good percussions and great production quality – one of the great qualities I’ve ever listened on the Soul Strings’ discography. The mix between the well performed screams and the low pitched clean vocals are the best part of the album, you will love it. If you are into old-school In Flames, At The Gates, Amon Amarth or Children of Bodom you will certainly like this album! My Little Pony and Old-School Swedish Death Metal – a great mixture of textures and sounds that Soul Strings will give you if you listen to this masterpiece!
Erasing The Enigma is available to download on bandcamp and the whole thing is also available on YouTube.
Frozen Night sure has been pulling off quite the impressive streak of amazing tunes that are both masterfully composed and emotional, and this new movement from the upcoming EP is doing a magnificent job at going even further. Bringing a very creative ethnic vibe in continuation to the first movement, it plays out the concept from the cover art and the title in beautiful and epic ways over a mighty progression where Orchestral and World Music instruments gather for a massive experience of blissful sound.
We completely missed this when it first released back in May, but thanks to someone sending it in to us, we’re able to share it with you today! This compilation album featuring artists from the Japanese fandom scene was released at Japan Ponycon in May earlier this year. It features some names you might recognise (e.g. Oodoratoo2, delfino), but also has a wide variety of other artists you may never have heard of, and a huge range of genres too! The above video contains previews of each track, and the album itself can be downloaded from JPP’s website for free!
I don’t think I’ve previously heard any Brazilian samba music from the fandom so this is pretty cool. Check it out for a solid exploration of the style; maybe one of our hip hop producers will follow in Cut Chemist’s footsteps and chop it up with some breakbeats haha. Fun, relaxing tune.
