Destructively distorted basses, frenzied vocal samples, and rhythms that leave you speechless are only a few of the benefits of leaving this song on loop. Payyn and PoniPlague come together to bring you a genre this fandom absolutely needs more of. Fortunately, however, there’s an entire compilation album of it just waiting for your ears over at the Pinkamena Party Bandcamp. As a fan, I can assure that this piece will leave any dance floor in exhilarating mayhem. Except for like, a waltz or something. Just to be concise, don’t bring this to a waltz.
Serving as the intro to his album of the same name, Zephy, joining forces with the vocal talent of Pretty Pegasus Wings, brings an interesting and intense track not for the faint of heart. Unlike Zephy’s usual fare, this is an experimental track filled to the brim with creepy atmospheric noises and a brooding piano riff, complete with a haunting spoken word poem. This piece wouldn’t be out of place in a horror game soundtrack. It definitely isn’t for everypony, but if you like dark ambient music, this could be right up your alley.
Orient yourself for the rave-filled Ponydome VII with this acidic opener! Spikey Wikey introduces you to the oddity of Ponydome with a sample-filled Hardcore track. The song starts off with classic string sampling and ragga-themed vocals, to then progress to a 303-heavy groove over paced amen breaks. Through an interlude of saturated sample looping, the song transitions to a gabber beat with a doubled tempo, embracing the spirit of hardcore. Sprinkled with sampling goodness, this song subdues with a fade-out and will surely make you want to continue your Ponydome VII ventures.
Wow, this song really hits those feels, combining a catchy instrumental and melody with emotional lyrics that hit a little too close to home. The loud and punchy, smashing drums and heavy guitars combine to make a rocking, emotional, and catchy track – so make sure you get your ice cream ready cause this song will definitely hit those feels! Check it out!
Now, I know it’s a little too early for Halloween. However, if you feel like getting the spookies on before everyone else, you may do your decorations to this track! The dark, gloomy industrial overtones, coupled with interesting vocal effects on “This Day Aria”, which is kind of a signature of this particular artist, makes for an intensely creepy yet strangely satisfying experience. All in all, another great remix from Toby Macarony!

This piece of music is a chilling and a bittersweet reminder of just sometimes you don’t need words for a message. Sleepy Toaster’s piece heavily reminds me of why I love atmospheric music. It’s not just pony music that could be used in a grimdark or Fallout Equestria setting. But this music could be used to set the tone for anything you want to give an unsettling feel too. Or a mysterious vibe to as well. Its has this dark music box tone, birds chirping and static radio sounds with this slow clockwork-like melody that slowly creeps up your spine. Not bad! As always this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself
Hardcore Pinkamena Party advocate and creator of all things weird, DAϟH returns with one of his extraordinarily hard-hitting contributions to the latest Pinkamena Party album! Featuring everything from pony dialogue to raid sirens and EAS alerts to enhance the atmosphere, it is held together by multiple sections of frenetic speedcore. I was quite impressed with the kicks’ design all over this track and it fits right at home in the PONYDOME!
The newest rapper making noise in brony rap is definitely Pony Abstract and, in preparation for releasing his debut album, has dropped a single coming off of multiple performances at BronyCon 2019. His energy level seen at Straight from the Heart’s Renegade Stage set at BronyCon is certainly on display here and, though his lyrics are relatively simple, they are clever and his flow is exceptionally clean. His charisma is palpable and the rap here is brief but very catchy. All I can say is Abstract is up next!
Succumb to a slackened state with four minutes of chillout-inspired garage elegance. The drenched piano and emotionally significant lyrics propose a relaxed atmosphere, then the unbound, shifting drums complete the piece. The distress of the vocals locks in well with the watery hits of the piano and background synth. This song doesn’t fail with creating an influx of feels, and it deserves its spot on Equinity.
D1SCORDANT is on a roll with these instrumentals. This time, we’ve got an industrial piece that seems to take influence from industrial/nu metal from the late 90s and early 2000s. With dark sounding synths and crunchy downtuned guitars reminiscent of Korn, D1SCORDANT captures the mood of being in Tartarus – or possibly leading it – with flying colours. If you love your metal heavy, then you’ll love this too.
