Nyancat380 – Bass Theory EP | Hardcore

Nyancat380’s EP has one very strong message. His talent to make hardcore genes blend with other eletronic music genres. It’s a tale of pure psychosis of one Lyra Heartstrings on her quest to find if humans or more so bronies are real. A quest that has done a number on her mind. Nyancat has this passion for horror storytelling with his creative music making for a popular headcanon in brony history his own thing. But enough talking. Let’s check this out, I may add that these genres of music may not be for everyone, but its really cool to hear the creative music making of this EP.

Pinkamena Party – FLUTTERSHY’S PARADOXICALLY SOFT HARDCORE TEA PARTY | Compilation Album | Breakcore


Ladies ‘n’ gents, prepare yourself mentally, for an event regarding Pinkamena Party Crew’s new release, FLUTTERSHY’S PARADOXICALLY SOFT HARDCORE TEA PARTY! And what better way to peruse this album’s contents than to let the familiar name and voice of Venetian Snares guide you through the first track, Venetian Snares Teaches Fluttershy the Magic of Breakcore by Fetlocked? Fluttershy’s melodic lines in the aforementioned piece is immediately followed by the ambient, electronica-esque track first time under by cataidana & Enny Gima. For more of that sweet electronica nectar, follow up first time under with the Downtempo track Anti Depressants by Srgt. Moon. If noise is in your roster, check out the ambient noise track Feeding Antoine by So?ing Machine. Satisfy your natural cravings for syncopation with the Think-Break-populated, frantic masterpiece HACKD HAS BEEN TRAPPED IN A TIME LOOP SINCE BUCK 2014 AND LIFE & DEATH HAVE LOST ALL MEANING FOR HE SHALL KNOW THE RELIEF OF NEITHER by mycutiemarkisagun. Personally, I think the song would fare better with a longer title, but to each their own. Speaking of length, Heart & Blood by Xinovah is an eleven minute long piece containing haunting, goosepimple-giving melodies, lively gabber kicks, and even more hectic rhythms. To cut up the poignancy of Heart and Blood, you can subsequently listen to Kakofonous A. Dischord delete a message from a toy shop employee. And there is no better way to conclude the mania of the 29-track beaut that is this album, than to listen to asmr tea party with a magician by 16194. As always, proceeds from this album are donated to a worthy cause. This time around, it’s various organizations fighting for racial justice in the U.S.

Let’s have a look at this fun little project.

Whirlwind – Escape | Album | IDM / Electronica

(Please visit Whirlwind’s Bandcamp to support it)
Whirlwind is not just a drummer in this fandom, oh no, my fellow bronies. He is quite the musical storyteller. It takes special talent to take real dreams and translate them into relatable music. His debut album tells a story of his OC seeing Equestria. It’s amazing to me how much MLP:FiM means so much to people, and how dreams like this can translate into music such as this. The elements in use are there, creative uses of ambient, electronia, IDM. even a bit of drone, D&B and even glitch-hop. These all bring out the experience of so many ups and downs, drama-filled excitement or moments of peaceful bliss. Whirlwind alone should be commended in the creative experimentation of electronic music that he’s trying to break into, but enough of me talking… Let’s have a listen.

Seventh Element – Equestria VHS | Album | Synthwave

The Sovreign of Synthwave returns with a 15-track album full of 80s sound-inspired pony goodness! Seventh Element has always specialized in out-of-the-box sound design and style as evidenced by Equestria VHS. The songs on this album are based on the ponification of different 80s movies and references to phenomena of the time (usually centered around VHS tapes). Several sound bits are laced throughout to really help set the tone, like the clips of video tapes being inserted into VCRs, and rewind machines getting used.

Noc – Empty Horizons | Original Audiobook Soundtrack | Soundtrack / Orchestral


I’d first like to preface this write-up by saying how much I love fanfiction, like almost as much as brony music, and that I’m reading Empty Horizons now and so far it’s really good. So, onto the album! It’s a soundtrack to an audiobook, which I’ve never really seen before. There are 15 awesome tracks on here, and each one is distinct and memorable. There are some really cinematic tracks, like the Main Theme and Twilight Falls, and string-heavy tracks like Rarity’s Theme, but all the tracks, in general, are packed with passion and emotion, and overall they all add to the vibe of the story.

Equestrian Terror Corps – COREQUESTRIA Vol. 1: Ponyville | Compilation Album | Horror Hardcore / Breakcore


(Warning: The following album has strong adult language, and intense horror themes. you have been warned.)

This article was Co-written by Nevermourn and DrakeEmberHeart.

If you’re looking for something really out there, or if you’re feeling adventurous in the realm of the brony music community, then my partner for this article, Nevermourn, and I want to point you to Equestrian Terror Corps’s first compilation album, “COREQUESTRIA Vol 1: Ponyville”. From listening to this Album, it’s very different from a lot of electronic music out there in the fandom. The theme of this album is horror, chaotic and disturbing electronic music that tells the tale of a disorated Ponyville, plagued by these themes. You’ll find hardcore, rawstyle, speedcore, terrorcore, breakcore, Spittercore and even some chiptune! The tracks themselves are full of some of the most interesting productions of music I’ve heard. The use of vocal chops and insanely fast, haunting and eerie-sounding elements are well done. The album will basically brainwash you into listening, as well as give you a sense of the bizarre! One of the most intriguing things is the recurring theme of various moments or episodes from the show and getting them twisted and turned for some of these tracks. It’s worth a listen. Let’s have a look, shall we?
