Lovecraftian Music

Hi all. I wanted to let you all know that there is a new album out by a band called "The Unquiet Void" that is an "All Lovecraft" album. It's called "Poisoned Dreams". Musically it would fall under the Dark Ambient genre. Just to give you an idea, some of the tracks have titles like: Cyclopean Monoliths, Necronomicon, Return to Innsmouth, The Esoteric Order, R'lyeh Rerisen, ....you get the idea. From what I have heard it's the first of a 3 CD series. It's great stuff.

Re: Lovecraftian Music

and i would whole-heartedly agree with that, my dancing jester of the degenerate pallid unspeakable jig! Unquiet Void is awesome, creepy reciting of a few Lovecraft passages and mild, disturbing soundscapes comingling with dissonate harsh industrialness - but not overly so. like the wheel turning in darkness...

cools. D

Went to their website and checked out one of their tracks. Sounds really foul (which is to say I thought it was pretty great). Thanks for that link, NN!

I checked out The Unquiet Void and definitely dug 'em. If you're interested in more of a psych/progressive rock thing with "eldritch drones," you should check out this Lovecraftian album, "Eldritch Musicks":

Re: Lovecraftian Music


Lyrics:


The cold comes
The rats in the walls break
The deadly sound of silence
As time decays
You try to name the unnamable
A whispererer in darkness

Our hound smells you
The haunter of the dark
Will come to take you to our realm
Your life, your books
March in front your closing eyes
Beyond the walls of sleep

Lovecraft in the realm of the dead

Obsessed with Necronomicon
The Arab's wicked dream
You found a path to Azathoth
And walked the Dagon's realm

Your friends were haunted too
Do you remember Charles?
Or haven't you heard
The music of Erich Zann
The call of Cthulhu we disguised
With notes and raving rhythms
To spread the seed of lurking fear
Into the heart of man

Lovecraft in the realm of the dead

Your time is out you saw too much
You used the silver key
You know too well that minds like yours
Can never rest in peace

You stared at the abyss
You'll never rest in peace

You'll never rest in peace

Re: Lovecraftian Music

Case of stumbling into something blind. I just picked up a cd of classical composer Jeffrey Stadelman entitled Pity Paid. There's a 10 minute piece for chamber orchestra called "Starry Wisdom." The title of the piece referencing Lovecraft's "The Haunter of the Dark." Stadelman notes "one prevailing extra-musical image in composing the piece was of a hypothetical "instrumental liturgy" employed by the Starry Wisdom cult worshippers.
