Good day inmates!

I hope you’re all having a wonderful today my friends and I hope you’re all keeping safe as well. Its been an interesting week here at thr asylum. I’ve had to isolate due to somebody else testing positive for the grand old plague. Quite an inconvenience, but at leaat I’m always in the warm. I do like the warm. Haha!

So, its time for another edition of the Harlequins writing music today. However, as I mentioned last week, I wanted to focus on a single musical artist instead of multiple. To shine the eerie spotlight on an artist whom I particularly like to listen to. Especially if I find the artist inspiring or otherwise unique. For this instance, I have decided to share Ghostemane with you all.

Now, Ghostemane is a curious American mix of a rapper and an industrial metal artist. I was introduced to his music by a close friend early in 2019 and my interest in his work has only increased. It’s strange because I am not typically too big on hip-hop or rap, though I find his music quite different. Indeed its rappy, but it has previous intense gothic and industrial overtones with subjects like serial killers, demons, mysticism and astrology. Many of his songs are quite explicit and even violent, as you’ll soon witness. Another aspect of his music I enjoy is his vocal range. He can go from singing, to screaming, back to screaming before rapping at lightspeed. I actually believed it2 was several people originally, but all the “voices” are his. On a side note, I always like the gothic aesthetic that he toys with anyways.

But enough chatter, want to hear some of it? I know I do! Without further ado, join me as we delve into the darkly musical mind of Ghostemane!

Ghostemane – Nihil

Ghostemane – Hydrochloride

Ghostemane – Hades

Ghostemane – Lazaretto

Ghostemane – Venom

Ghostemane – Gatteka

And there we have it for some Ghostemane music to whet your appetite (or scare you off!)

So, as you can tell, his music is definitely not for everybody. There are a great many expletives and disturbing imagery. But art is not always sunshine and rainbows. Hell, my own work should give that away! So I’d suggest giving him a chance, even if you don’t like one song you may enjoy another as they are quite varied. As usual, I’ll include a link to his website here.

So, that’s it for another week. I hope you’ve enjoyed this look into a side of music not many seem to understand. It’ll be a normal writing music poat next week, honest! So, the asylum has its own social media prescence too. I have a Facebook page, an account over on Instagram and also a page on Twitter. As always, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over at the Ko-fi page! Cheers guys!

Until next time, have a very crazy day inmates!
