about

My concept album takes place in a more harsh and dark type of Equestria, like a mix of Dark Souls and the show. In this Equestria, the dragons are called "The Horde" and have a history with the region around Ponyville, Canterlot and Cloudsdale. 1000 years ago, The Horde was banished to the Badlands by Queen Celestia. Spike, however, was allowed to stay with Twilight Sparkle when she hatched him during her test. She was convinced that she could make him fit in and become one of them. Sadly, this is not how it plays out in the album. The lyrics, pacing and structure of the album are made so there's enough information to know what's going on but still leaving a lot of room to make your own interpretation.

The first part of the story, named "Misbegun", is about Spike, the baby dragon, who leaves Ponyville to find his true self and purpose in the Badlands where the dragons (The Horde) hail.

The second part, named "King of the Horde", focus on when Spike meet these other dragons and, eventually (after an unspecified amount of time), becomes the king.

The third and final part, named "Their Blackest Day", is about the inevitable annihilation of Ponyville, Canterlot and Cloudsdale, lead by Spike, the new king of The Horde.

Track Name: Misbegun
A life misbegun
Even though it's been fun
No longer I can stay
I hear a call... from far away


Walking inside their circle
Nothing but a tragic sight

Liars, hollowed promise
Never one of the same

Your cascading futures are drifting away
Trapped in a limbo of no beginning... or end

Ruthless, a meandering world
A veil over their reality

Wasted, every waking hour lying in wait

Your cascading futures are fading away
They are controlling you... to be free


Carried by the river in me
Where I'm reborn, they will see

Facing unearthly demands
Now there I am in the Badlands


The most wondrous sunset forever
To be so far off, far off away

Try to forgive
Don't ever forgive
Try to forgive
Don't ever...

Lyrics sung by:
Alexander Engström as Spike
Kevin Rosberg as Spike's inner dragon
Nanna Lundin as Twilight Sparkle
Track Name: King of the Horde
Verse 1a
Skeleton paradise, realm of chaos, the strongest survives
Born in hatred, a brutal vision for revenge
A mental scar, the wounds are deep
I won't be alone in this dark reality

Verse 1b
Deny
Negate
For my
Absolution fueled by hate
Defy
Dominate
And I
Hell on earth I'll orchestrate

Ghost 1
I'll be the face... the face of horror
I'll be the chaos... the chaos restorer
I'll be the end... the end of the line
I'll be death... death divine

Reverie
I'm nearing the point of no return
Climbing ever higher

[Chorus 2]
Our power and their pain
Dancing until we remain
Don't stop the noise inside my head
The fearful sound of violence

Our power will sustaine
Devastate the tyrants reign
Don't stop the voice inside my head
The flawless sound of violence

Verse 2a
Look into our eyes if you want to know the meaning of hate
Everything we lost came from blood, sweat, toil and faith
They took a free ride to a place where you drew the line
And so we brought you out from the depths of your self decline

Verse 2b
War cry
Dictate
For my
Resolution fueled by hate
Defy
Dominate
And I
Hell on earth I'll orchestrate

King 1
They will live for war, the way they die
Bring on the taste of misery

Violent the sound the fearless screams
Here comes the pain here comes the agony

I am reborn, I am the king
I am the king of the horde

Ghost 2
I am the face... the face of horror
I am the chaos... the chaos restorer

[Chorus 3]
Our power and their pain
Dancing until we remain
Can't stop the sonance in my head
The perfect sound of violence

Our power will sustaine
Devastate the tyrants reign
Can't stop the music in my head
The eternal sound of violence

Verse 3
Deny
Negate
For my
Conflagration fueled by hate
Defy
Dominate
And I
Hell on earth I'll orchestrate

Ghost 3
I am the end... the end of the line
We are death... death divine
Track Name: Their Blackest Day
In the break of the morning,
Coming in with no warning,
Striking from up high

Like the size of a city
Comes the legion of horde
From a different sky

There was a torturous vision
Of a deadly collision
They watch in agony

An inconsivable terror,
A celestial invader,
Innocent casualties

Burning fire
Screams of pain and fear
Piercing higher
Hell on earth is here

Clouds are melting
Life just drains away
Darkness, death
This: their blackest day!

Obliteration, disintegration,
It's all turning to dust
From the force of the impact
Everything they love has combust

Their world begins to crumble
It's all just a matter of time
This is the ultimate chaos
This is the end of the line

Burning fire
Screams of pain and fear
Piercing higher
Hell on earth is here

Village ignited
Life just drains away
Darkness, death
This: their blackest day!

In the break of the morning
Striking from up high
This is the ultimate chaos
This is the end...

Burning fire
Screams of pain and fear
Piercing higher
Hell on earth is here

Castles are crumbling
Life just drains away
Darkness, death
This: their blackest day!

Black...
Black...
Black...
Black!
