Hello there inmates!

How has your week been so far? Totally good I am hoping! My week has been sufficient I suppose, uneventful since monday honestly. I suppose I shouldn’t complain really. I’d rather uneventful than negative eh? Apologies for the later posting today, I’ve been getting a bit lazy honestly. I’ve been enjoying my writing this previous week or so, and I hope that you guys have been enjoying my work. I’ve felt like I have created some of my better works recently and maybe my best ever during this year. That’s not to say they’re good, by the way, merely that I’ve felt they were better than my average.

So, with that grumbling out of the way, let’s talk about music eh? The Harlequins writing music to be precise! Music is always the best way to improve ones mood. Did anybody see the clue I posted earlier today? I felt like it was less obvious, as far as music goes. Did anybody guess it? Well, let me tell you! The musical theme for todays atrocity is…

Dark magic!

Yes, that’s right! Witches, sorcerers and warlocks oh my! It may sound kind of crazy as a theme for music, but hear me out. Magic and hell and demonology have been subjects for many musical artists over the years. From death metal bands to orchestras. It is a theme we can all sort of understand. Imagery of monsters and witchcraft are pretty well known globally, albeit in different forms. The feelings of dread surrounding death and the passage to hell are often incorporated into music in low drumming and ominous tones. At the other end of the spectrum, some pretty chilled music can be used in represent the more natural and pagan forms of witchcraft, ethereal and whimsical in design to be sure. I’m finding it hard to actually describe music that includes themes of the occult or similar esoteric ideas, I can imagine it in my head (mostly from listening to particular artists) but it’s so hard to put into words that seem coherent. I think it may be easier to just listen to some eh? Yes? I think that would help. Let’s do that.

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

Munro – Demonic Headcase

Ghostmane – John Dee

Emilie Autumn – Chambermaid

Rob Zombie – American Witch

Peter Gundry – Goetia

And there we have it! How was that? Did you feel the arcane eminence coming from these songs? Did they cast a spell upon you? Feeling a little bit…. possessed? A little bit of a variety there eh? I could have included quite a few other songs in this field as well, but I think I wanted to get the theme across in the most poignant ways possible. Not to mention it’s getting a bit. I hope you check out all of these artists as I feel that they deserve the exposure. Don’t worry, they won’t cast any magic on you, I promise!

So, let’s have some totally non-magical social media stuff. The asylum has a page over on the book of faces, an account on an instant-friend gram and also an account over on Tweety bird. What? You know what sites I’m talking about. Also, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the…. Ko-Fi page. Couldn’t think of anything funny, oh and thank you for everything!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

So it’s nearly Halloween so i thought i’d put a damn good horror style music video up. The video is “Living Dead Girl” by the excellent Rob Zombie!
