Continuing his theme of orchestral tunes for the six legendary pillars, Jyc Row introduces us to his tribute for Mistmane. Learning some new tricks in instrumentation and composition, Jyc Row gives us a nice change of pace with an Asian-themed score, using several instruments indigenous to the continent. The track begins with a very full sound, despite only using a few instruments, then builds into a grandiose, epic soundtrack for the most generous of the pillars. All of the characteristics of a typical JR score are there too, reminding us all why he is one of the premier producers in our music fandom!
I think the thing that impresses me the most about this isn’t necessarily the ponified lyrics, but more those high notes that Moon Flame hits in this! It’s one thing to rewrite a pop song about ponies, but another to be able to actually sing something like this too. Nice job.
A tribute to the eponymous and renowned Celtic Orchestral musician Jyc Row, this new song by Elias Frost is also a challenge to try and compose something in Jyc’s style, and I think it definitely succeeded in both aspects! Rich progression of various Orchestral and Celtic instruments, epic vibes and melodies, it’s a breathtaking composition overall paying much tribute to Jyc and his style! Such a wonderful initiative!
Homage is back in full force and first up is an inspired Dubstep tune themed around Saddle Arabia, and that can definitely be heard throughout the song! Eastern melodies are accompanying the wubs and the beats for a tasty result. If this is how Foreign Relations sound like, then I assume they must be very successful!
The Russian group Przewalski’s Ponies have a new song about Snowdrop. Gentle, well-paced, and delightfully atmospheric, it’s very relaxing. A poignant mix of simple electronics and strings permeate throughout the song, and Andy Feelin’s vocals are expertly sung.
Soul Strings went right on the theme for the charity album Seeds of Kindness: A Healing Touch, with a very therapeutic song! A lovely Equestrian story full of kindness, an uplifting instrumental embodying Pinkie’s Element, and a dash of magic, that is what Eclair Therapy is about, and I’d say it has the power to cheer you up just like Pinkie’s eclairs! And that magic shall spread through the album and its intent!
Tina’s rendition of the original OST track Tourments by Damien is a shining display of vocal talent, as the gorgeous vocals are paying much tribute to Luna. Soothing vibes from the instrumental are adding to the mix for a masterful “Luna’s version”! Tourments is an OST track for the French MP3 saga “Erebys” by Damien, listen to the first episode here!
Another gorgeous and heartfelt release from Vylet, this one has another kind of backstory that can be read from the description, and it expresses it through mellow vocals with a dash of melancholy. The instrumental has got plenty of wonders to marvel at as well, such as a wonderful use of guitar and even harmonica!
Radial Rainbow! This cover is really brutal and headbanging. The flute is really well performed, I love how it replaces the vocals. Then the guitar riffs are also pretty amazing, I was stunned when I first listened to this and now I’m addicted to this cover! The breakdowns, a thing that is very common in Modern Metalcore, were really pretty awesome! This is full of awesomeness and the last part it’s the best part. With the flute and the piano, then the guitar riff comes and the chorus is played again with more awesomeness and then more breakdowns happened! This is really a treat for me, thank you Radial Rainbow for this amazing cover! Stay brutal!
This is my jam!! Pony band BroniKoni presents us the first track from their upcoming album “Friendship Express”, and it’s about the hero-in-the-night figure of Mare Do Well! Fitting to the theme so well with very thieves-y, blissful and catchy flute melodies, the track also features delightful aggressive guitar riffs and tasty drums play, as well as eloquent vocals and cool lyrics, making this track an all-time masterpiece and an almighty tribute to Mare Do Well! The awesome visuals are further contributing to blow us away with an utterly cool Mare Do Well with a flowing cape in the night, and well-executed searchlights, to give the perfect visual accompaniment to the song! Mad props to everypony involved!!
