We’ve come a long way haven’t we? This is a surprisingly sweet tune from Toby as it leads in with a gentle acoustic guitar melody and a soothing backing of strings to harmonize with the iconic vocals from the Season Three Finale, “Celestia’s Ballad” but it wouldn’t be Toby if he left us on that, right? I can assure you as time goes on the track will flip on its head with a masterful use of complex chords and harmonization with a foreboding atmosphere and an almost industrial sound. It threw me for a loop the first time I heard it and I hope the same can be said to those who have yet to listen!
MelodyBrony has been on quite the roll recently with their intense, metal tracks! This Kingdom is based off the season 9 premier and Twilight’s inner fear of running the entire kingdom of Equestria. The melody intersperses pauses that add a unique tension to the track and cause unease, as if you are experiencing the anxiety yourself. The guitar parts have a nice technical quality that show off Melody’s continued growth. If you like the lower, grungier rock tones, and especially if you DJENT, then make sure to have a listen!
Rusty is back at it again with their unique style of story telling! This song is a haunting tale of the 22nd Jeremiah; a rusted metal husk of a ship said to contain countless souls and horrors lost at sea generations ago. The vocal processing is quite intriguing, and the steady rise and fall of the melody as it blends electronic elements and pirate themed instrumentation really sells the story! The amount of unorthodox distortions and rigid aspects are quite an experimental treat! If a haunting shanty is what you are after then you’ve found the right song!
It’s Ponies at Dawn time once again and that of course means 4EverfreeBrony has another fantastic release! This exclusive pre-release comes with an awesome PMV put together by JackDC93. Super Fan is sung from the viewpoint of Scootaloo using pleasant melodies and a solid rock performance. 4EverfreeBrony addresses her disabilities and hardships with growing up while highlighting her own self-worth as Rainbow Dash’s super fan. The track is wholesome and extremely well produced as you would expect from the fandom veteran, and the PMV furthers the hype for the big release this Friday!
Night Blaze really shows off an array of compositional prowess with this track. Happy Ending is exactly what the title implies – a beautiful, uplifting composition evoking warm nostalgia and sentimentality. The score moves seamlessly through different parts from a piano lead-in to light string movements to more intense, grand segments with electric guitar and quickly strummed strings. It’s a little hard not to tear up listening to this wonderfully emotional track!
Every new release by Cynifree is a feast, with how the musician always manages to bring unique atmospheres and genres to the table! This one is no exception, and the Chillhop treat is full of surprises! Melodic, dark, mysterious, deep, this gem makes us follow Trixie’s hoofsteps in a new world yet unexplored…
I just love to see such jazzy pieces in the community!! Inspired by that breathtaking artwork by Queen-KittyKat, Alexey Kotlyar went to pay tribute to it with a so smooth instrumental that fits so well as a BGM to have while gazing at the artwork. Come chill at the bus stop along the ponies and Alexey in this cuddly atmosphere!
Vylet’s masterpieces from her Homeward concept album come in such different styles, but all so gorgeous! Wayward is such a beauty of an Ambient track, while Vylet’s collaboration with Cactus Flower in Norphae is blending chill and hard-hitting vibes for a stunning result! As always, feel free to check out the whole story on Fimfiction!
Hoofy’s bringing all the tasty Hardstyle all while extending the cuddly vibes with this remix of John Kenza‘s collab with 4EverfreeBrony, Love! The original vocals get a whole new electronic arrangement and it’s so awesome to get such an alternate version of the beautiful song. Be on the lookout for Hoofy’s contribution to Ponies at Dawn Skyward, whose release draws near!
Ersillus makes their debut in the pony music scene with a beautiful Progressive House track that brings much “feel good” vibes along that emotional artwork! A very promising start and we’re excited to hear more from the musician!
