I enjoy the obscure side of Pony, and my stories tend to be offbeat explorations of unexpected characters or ships.

the "horns of Tirek" sign

That's great, I've gotta steal that. :rainbowlaugh:

I do think that Nightwish et. al. would have a decent showing, but I think the bigger scene would be more like... Poison? Kiss? Or maybe Slaughter, or Rhino Bucket (at risk of being too obscure). Like imagine if, circa 1970, Jimi Hendrix had gotten into a slightly heavier vibe (and didn't die), and Black Sabbath never formed. That'd be a much more "fun"-metal scene than what evolved IRL. (Though in many ways less interesting, no offense Jimi!)

At least until Pony-Nirvana came around and torpedoed everything. :derpytongue2:

So, the main metal culture would be more like Nightwish or Within Temptation, with an almost hidden subculture of pony dark metal ( 'cause dark magic, not black magic), complete with the devotees making the "horns of Tirek" sign at the concerts (at least the ones in the Mosh Pit)? :pinkiegasp: Hmm... :trixieshiftleft: :trixieshiftright:

Y'know man, this is a brilliant and deep question. We think about Equestria as this utopian place where death, war, violence, and other social ills aren't as prevalent as in real life. And yet, the show and movie depict places and cultures that are relatively dangerous and violent from a pony's perspective. Consider creatures like dragons and griffons, as well as the unseen monsters of the Everfree; plenty of fodder there for songs of adventure or terror. Changelings seem not to be well-known, but they also offer plenty of vampire-ish opportunities to fuel gothic metal (plus the show has shown actual goth ponies on a number of occasions). Then there's also Equestria's own distant history of tribal violence that could help inspire things like power and/or death metal.

But that's all going on the assumption that metal tends to be inspired by violent things, which isn't universally true. It's also something that would come into conflict with Twilight's school of friendship and other institutions as the creatures of Equestria get to know each other better. Those things aside, Equestria could perhaps more easily spark a hedonistic/sex-drugs-booze kind of metal like we had more of in the 70s/80s.

Then of course, once you have any kind of metal at all, it's a short jump to playing it faster, giving you speed metal. Add some palm hoof muting and some attitude, and you easily reach thrash metal.

I guess the one that's harder to reach is black metal, right? Or maybe over time you start getting ponies who take a stronger interest in the world-shattering villains like Tirek and start getting way into that?

I can see Limestone as a bassist for a metal band, but, what type of metal do you think she would play? I can't see EQG or Pony characters being big on anything like death or war, I get the feeling it would resonate with too much of Nightmare Moon or Chrysalis for the ponies, and too much of monster Sunset or the Sirens for the humans. But Limestone belting out songs in Finnish would be, well, AWESOME!!! :rainbowlaugh:
