Hello there inmates!

I hope you’re all having a wonderful day! Oh, and a wonderful week of course. Mine has been quite nice to be honest. I’ve been able to spend plenty of time with Tash which is always a gift. I’ve been more than happy with my recent scribblings. I have been thinking I want to head back in to my more horror-esque works. I’ve leaned a bit too far from that favourite genre of mine in my opinion. What do you guys think?

So, I’m going to be showing all of you some new music today. You’re surely aware of my ways by now! Haha! I have a theme for my musical choices today and it’s one I feel like I have done in the non-too-distant past. I could be imagining it, but we’ll see. Maybe one you lot can let me know.

Todays musical theme is history! Oh yes, anyone who has read my work in the past knows that I have a soft spot for history, particularly when it comes to military history. History is an excellent subject for musical expression, both in subject matter and in stylistic methods. They sometimes use instruments you hear less often, such as instruments used in marching bands and the like. Orchestral stylings are also often used in artists work when imagining historical scenarios. I’m going to try and get a variety of artists as always, it can be difficult at times though!

So, join me as we delve into the musical minds of nostalgic artists the world over!

Sabaton – Fields Of Verdun

2Cellos – Thunderstruck

Iron Maiden – Run To The Hills

Neil Young – Cortez The Killer

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark – Enola Gay

And there we have it!

I had to include a Sabaton song in there, I just had to! So, I hope that you enjoy all of my choices this week and if you’re so inclined, go and give these artists some love. They all deserve it in my opinion. Let me know what you think of this weeks choices and maybe suggest a theme for next weeks writing music? That would be cool!

How about some Harlequin social media nonsense? The asylum has a page over on Facebook, and account on Instagram and an account on Twitter as well. Also, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page. Thank you for everything!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hello there inmates!

Oh hi! I didn’t see you there! Why were you hiding? Well anyways, I hope that you’re all having a safe and stress free week thus far. Its been another positive week here at the asylum. I’ve felt more content with my recent works than I usually do, I’ve been able to relax a little better than usual and also it was Tashs birthday the weekend just passed so that was rather lovely too. Positives stacked upon positives! Hehe!

I suppose you want some music now eh? It is time for the next tome of the Harlequins writing music today after all. I’ll be sharing five music artists that keep me company while I attempt to create cohesive sentences (hopefully). As usual I’ll try to keep it a tad varied, we wouldn’t want to lean too much towards one genre eh?

So, join me as we delve into the musical minds of sublime artists the world over!

No Rome – Narcissist

In Flames – Take This Life

Trivium – A Gunshot To The Head Of Trepidation

Pulp – Disco 2000

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark – Enola Gay

And there we have it for another edition of the Harlequins writing music!

Quite a variety there eh? Music covers all the bases when it comes to creating art. It inspires, energises and cheers you on. I hope that at least one of these artists takes your fancy and assists you too. Give them a try, you shan’t be disappointed.

Now for my usual social media proclamation. The asylum has a prescence on Facebook, an Instagram page and a Twitter account. Come and follow me over there, it can fun at times I swear! Also, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over at the Ko-fi page. Thanks for everything my friends!

Until next time (and the first week of December), have a very crazy day inmates!
