Danger in the Skies of Equestria LockeStockeAndBaryl 6/21/2012 3:01:57am No.6 - Score: 13
Hello, everyone. This is my first time to try toast beard, and coincidentally my first time composing a full-on orchestral track. I think it turned out all right.



Derpy's Bubble Balloon Seventh Element 6/21/2012 2:16:50pm No.8 - Score: 12
Yeaaahhh chiptunes aren't my strong suit.



March of the Changelings Eccentrifuge 6/22/2012 1:06:11am No.10 - Score: 9
"They came from the air, from atop the mountains. Thousands of them. A gargantuan swarm blotting out our fair princess's sun. As quickly as we could, we sent every pegasus to the air, the earth ponies providing secondary defenses below, in our finest vessels. The unicorns are at the ends of their defensive strength below us.
It's only a matter of time before they break our defenses. I can hear their leader rallying the army. We must stand strong."


First ever Toast Beard entry



I Wanna Fly an Airship Blind 6/22/2012 9:48:37pm No.20 - Score: 9
An earth pony colt dreams of one day flying despite his lack of wings.

My computer actually broke as I was finishing this song, so I hope it was worth it.



Zeppelin Space Battle Chuckles 6/23/2012 2:07:33pm No.29 - Score: 8
An epic zeppelin battle instantly brought to mind "Ride of the Valkyries", and these zeppelins look like something out of a sci-fi movie, so I made a glitch/dubstep song complete with lazors, explosions and sirens. This is also my first ever ToastBeard entry!



Aviators - Never Back Down (Fimbulin Remix) Fimbulin 6/23/2012 6:36:11am No.22 - Score: 7
ONE WEEK- yeah right.
in response to the theme- YEAH RIGHT.
I LOOKED AT THAT PICTURE. DOES THAT COUNT



On A Wild Adventure (acapella ver) Marshmelon 6/23/2012 3:35:32pm No.31 - Score: 7
Well the background vocals weren't supposed to be anything special (or even good) but they kind of (KIND OF!) came together at the end so I said, "hay, why not do a little mixing so the lead stands out and the thing doesn't clip" and then I did.

This song really wants someseapony to make an actual instrumental track for it. I have the acapella and everything else.

Recorded in a garage. Will Mallard like me now?



Fall of a Pegasus Doofcake 6/22/2012 4:32:43pm No.18 - Score: 6
Imagine a pegasus, flying high up in the air, when suddenly she stops flapping her wings and simply lets herself freefall. That is what inspired this track. After seeing many drawings of pegasi freefalling, it moved me so much that I simply had to make a track inspired by it.

Also, I might not be here for the sync-listen, because it's Jaanipäev (midsummer day) so I'll be outside, jumping over a bonfire and drinking mead, possibly not even home.



Airships (WIP) Cherax 6/23/2012 9:58:11am No.24 - Score: 6
THAT'S A SWEET ASS-AIRSHIP.

I'm a conscientious objector, so rather than write a song about epic battles, I thought I'd write a short but sweet rubato piece for acoustic guitar about cruisin' the skies.
... for about an hour. Then I ditched that idea and made some chillwave. What the fuck is wrong with me?

Anyhow. This is actually pretty dang WIP. There are a whole bunch of planned things missing, I have no idea if these pitched kicks sound good, etc. etc. So seriously, guys, rip into this. I want to be drowning in constructive criticism!





Bow to Stern ScootaLewis and AdamTh3Walker 6/23/2012 5:15:18pm No.34 - Score: 6




Desperate Measures Pirate Luna 6/21/2012 7:43:56pm No.9 - Score: 5
Not really fitting the hole equestrian time frame with the lasers *pew**pew* but who doesn't like lasers any why i hope you ponies enjoy this is my first time on toast beard and I hope you ponies enjoy



Slip Like Teen Anthem bartekko nirvana lmfao deadmau5 6/22/2012 4:49:46am No.12 - Score: 5
blame mcmiag



Set sail for battle (on the air i mean) Maxey 6/22/2012 12:51:40pm No.15 - Score: 5
My first attempt at orchestral stuff and this was loads of fun.
Couldnt spend as much time on this as I would have liked but ill finish it later.

So enjoy some Orchestral rock with dnb elements (because everything is better at 170bpm)



"> " type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100%"> Airship AlphaBetta 6/20/2012 12:54:25pm No.5 - Score: 4
I wanted to highlight a bit of the mystery and fantasy along with the score.



Airship Zonak 6/23/2012 4:24:55pm No.32 - Score: 4
Acoustic metal because fuck the popo

~Lyrics~
Ever since these ponies
Developed the technology
To kill each other
It's been nothing but a living hell

They shoot each other from the skies
From their magical ships that fly
For reasons that I can't imagine why
