Ten Headed Skeleton-The Witch that was Guilty, But Silently Watched Your Daughter’s Burn | Shock factor
Imagine the drama behind a title like that. Some rise from among the ashes of self-immolation. Ten Headed Skeleton is one of them, and his music is a bit of a… contrast. You should salute him for the trick he’s played on so many who haven’t listened to his album. Don’t judge this particular book by its cover. This is called The Witch that was Guilty, But Silently Watched Your Daughter’s Burn.
Here is the contrast-the instrumental background is straight out of a video game soundtrack, and Ten Headed Skeleton has some choice verses that he raps over them. Each instrumental varies, and so does his lyrical flow. Show Me the Haunted House is the opening track. A treble heavy affair, there is bass percussion that keeps the song alive. There are moments where the high levels of the background lead steal attention, but Nhat has it covered with his lyrics.
In the head of the Ten Headed Skeleton
Knife and Until the Flesh Comes Off show his superior sense of flow, all the instrumentals merely a way to keep the beat ticking. The cartoonish appeal lies in the details of the track as well, the wonderment being in the confidence Ten Headed Skeleton has in his verse abilities. The background almost tends to fade away in some parts, not by sound, but by effect. Slaughter Them All and the title track come in next, with a Broadway like simplicity. Nhat creates another sly resolve with the vocals. They aren’t particularly polished, but do justice to the intent of creating a pause point that is different within the album.
The lyrical core might be a shock factor, but if you read into the verses, there’s some cool stuff going on with his flow. This is an artist trying to push the boundaries of how you perceive rap, and most avenues are taken. Some might be ill-lit.
Listen to his self-titled album from 2022 as well. And here is the fable that melted some brains:
